TRAVEL ESSENTIALS | The Headware | Lakad Pilipinas

I once asked Ed of SoloflightEd why he got an expensive Headware than buying a much cheaper bandana to use for his travel. He explained that it was much better than your regular biker dude bandana and proceeded to demonstrate its uses. Still, considering it is ten times more expensive, I was left unconvinced.

A week ago, I got a chance to test this wonder bandana called Headware in Baguio City after being sent a couple of samples. The first one’s a limited edition Marvel-inspired Headware that’s a bit too colorful for my taste (so I gave it to A instead) and the other’s a much more conventional black floral design that I kept.

The cloth was really soft and as I tried to put it on and I was surprised how easy it was to breathe through its fabric.

Although I only got to use it for an anonymous profile portrait for my Facebook account and didn’t get to try it on an actual shut-eye situation, I’m pretty sure this would be a sure-fire way to sleep through a long bus ride.
The Headware’s tubular design makes it easy to wrap on one’s wrist when not in use. It also doubles as a handy hanky to keep your face sweat-free during long walks. Plus it just looks plain cool too.
With Baguio’s chilly weather, I was able to use my Headware to keep me warm by wrapping it around my neck. I also like how it perfectly reduced the friction from my camera strap which always gets my nape sore after a full day of shooting.
Depending on your preference, its colorful designs can make for a flamboyant ponytail or a scuunci for girls while its simpler designs are perfect for long-haired rocker dudes (you can even do an Axl Rose on this one hehe). Using it as a balaclava and headscarf is also quite easy; just slip it on, adjust it a bit and it’s an instant ninja headscarf.

Being always out on the sun, I love wearing my Headware as a dustmask with my hat. Aside from its obvious use as a pollutant deflector, it also keeps my head cool from the sun. The fabric being stretchable and breathable makes it a comfort to wear all day.
Another thing I like about this product is how easy it was to clean. I have zero knowledge on washing clothes, but washing it was a piece of cake. And more wonders, it dries off quickly too.
After a week of walking around in Baguio, I am now convinced why every traveler should have a Headware. Aside from its super flexibility; it can transform from a simple headband to a tube top and skirt for girls, it also doesn’t fly off like your regular bandana when encountering strong wind.

Headwares cost from Php240.00 to Php425.00 depending on its design; with its functionality and quality I have to say that it is well worth its price.
