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
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.
If you’re lucky, your airplane seatmate won’t even mind.

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.
