Note: This is not a sponsored post. I love the product so much that I’m recommending it to everyone.

I usually bring a cap or hat whenever I go out of town. Aside from protecting my head from the elements of nature, it also keeps my hair from getting messed up. Call me a little vain but we all know how bad hair days feel.

I can’t recall how many times I’ve lost my caps whenever I travel. But I’m glad that there are products out in the market that are created out of innovation.

Enter Headware – a handy all-purpose, stretchable, breathable and tubular yet seamless accessory that has numerous ways to use, for many different activities. HeadWare wicks sweat away from your skin, keeps you cool on hot days, protects you from the elements or just makes you look cool. – theheadware.com

Headware: Keep Your Head Happy!

I came across this multifunctional gear through Sole Sisters Chichi and Lois when they posted a review on their blog – article here (Travel With-it Thursday: Keep Your Head Happy – WeAreSoleSisters.com).

They’ve been raving how useful it is especially now that they’re on a 6-month backpacking trip across Asia. Initially, I didn’t really mind the product that much cause I thought this was a girly accessory – boy was I wrong!

I visited R.O.X. Philippines Fort Bonifacio so I could claim my prize when I won a Mountain Hardwear Scrambler Backpack. During that visit, my friend showed me this travel gear which she was intent on buying. I gave a second thought when I looked at the price but still purchased it (at 240 Php) considering that I already got the backpack for free.

I also carry a bandana around when I want to wipe sweat and cover my face whenever I travel on a dusty road. But this garment not only serves as a hat or a mask; you can also use it as a scarf, headband, beanie, balaclava, wristband and so much more.

I put this Headware to good use during a recent trip to Sagada as it kept my head and ears warm from the cold climate.

Funny how we were influenced by the Sole Sisters and how we influenced fellow travel blogger, Carla, and her husband James to buy one for themselves too.

With its fabric being stretchable, I can just wear it around my neck and I won’t even have to worry if it’ll get lost cause I know it’s securely attached. You can carry it in your pocket like a handkerchief cause it’s light and doesn’t take a lot of space too.

This Headware multifunctional gear is not only limited for travelling. One time, I was jogging in Cebu and I used this to cover my neck and my nose from the metro’s pollution. It also became an effective disguise to hide myself from people I met along the way.

The Headware’s fabric is breathable so air passes through easily but it also serves as an insulator to keep you warm from the cold weather – very clever indeed!

My favorite use for this would be as a mask whenever I take a nap during those long hours of travel. But even at home, since I work on the night shift nowadays, I use this to cover my eyes from daylight. It helps lull me directly to sleep.

I’m not certain if I have convinced you enough to purchase one for yourself. In any case, I’m just spreading the love because of how convenient this is for people who are always on the go.

Funny man, Rovilson Fernandez, demonstrates how you can customize this Headware gear according to your liking.

Headware is available in all R.O.X. branches nationwide. You may visit their website at theheadware.com to check out other stores carrying this handy travel essential.

  • krystle

    Tama ba P240 lang sya?:) Good investment ito! Will prolly buy one this year. Nagiipon din ako ng travel gear.:) Yan, money belt at inflatable neck pillow ang nasa listahan ko pati mesh bags na organizer. Tama na yun sa akin hehehe!:P

  • Just saw this now! Thanks for posting Ed. Just reposted it on our FB page. I'm glad you love headware as much as we do!

  • Mel

    Depende ata sa print/patterns yung price, Ed. 🙂 The plain black one I bought only costs PhP170, the other colorful printed ones I have are PhP240 nga.
    Very useful, I used it almost everywhere – as head and neck cover for the cold in Benguet, face cover for dusty roads during climbs, pang-cover ng hair from the sun. Pero yung the best purpose nya for me is pang-DND mode din, pag natutulog sa travel. Andami ko kasing stolen shots na nakanganga habang tulog. Haha! 😀

  • a must have! bought another one last sunday 🙂

  • I could actually use one of these where I'm at since it is cold most of the year.  Finding something to cover yourself and still make it breathable is kind of hard to find sometimes.  Unfortunately it is just starting to warm up here, but I'll still check it out since I know it will just be cold again next year.

  • soloflightEd

    @krystle: yeah, 240, i think the plain ones are cheaper. wow, a neck pillow would be good for me too! 😀

    @lois: no prob lois, just spreading the headware love!

    @mel: thanks for the info! wasn't able to see a plain black one, will take note of that! true the DND mode, kakainis talaga pag may pamblackmail ang mga tao sayo because of stolen shots! hehe

    @carla: haha, adik na ai! hehe 😀

    @steve: you can always use this to cover your neck from the rays of the sun! this has so many uses steve!

  • hahaha your do-not-disturb-me pics made me laugh so much! 😀 but yeah, it's a really great product esp for travelers 😀

  • This piece of headwear is love. I have the same one as Chi Chi, so versatile indeed 🙂

    • soloflightEd

      @lakwatseradeprimera: yeah, i saw you on TV wearing that design. sikat ka na talaga claire! 😀

  • nice headware, flexible use. i'll buy one. 😀

  • @renevic: haha, napapabili talaga noh? hehe..

  • ah I see. dami pala niyang gamit kala ko pang landi outfit lang ng mga backpackers. lol! hihihi! natuwa ako sa beanie style. gawin ko nga yan sa office. mga hayok sa aircon mga tao dito e. just like havaianas, sabi ko sa sarili ko hinding hindi ako bibili ng mga ganyang kamamahal na gamit tapos wala naman special power para umangat sa iba. ikaw talaga… convincing ang post mo to. bibili na tuloy ako mamaya. chos! sa isang araw na lang. busy ako kakablog.  (at crush ko si rovilson. hahah! yun yun e)

  • @kura: lol. bili ka na kura! masayang gamit ito. napabili ba talaga? the product speaks for itself at di na kelangan ng promotion ko. naks. hahahaha
