I just had to give this a try, as I consider myself a connoisseur of headbands. I have long fine hair and have purchased far too many headbands that slide backward off my head while exercising. Not this one; it stays put for hours, no pulling, not too thick, just right. I have worn it on long runs, under my bike helmet and just because. It has become my favorite, go-to. I will be purchasing several more.
