I have got really into the stairmaster at the gym which is a phenomenal piece of kit where your weight literally drops off. It is hard work and being on the machine for 20 minutes is enough to have me dripping wet with sweat. It is a very intense work out and often find it easier to hold on, therefore I do not get much time to wipe my face. I bought the wrist band from the shop above the gym in order to keep my face looking fresh and stops the perspiration running into my eyes.
=Price and availability==
The cost of the wrist bad by Asics was £4.00 and I get a 10% discount at DW sports as I am a gym member there.
The band is made from 66% Cotton, 17% Polyamide, 17% Elastane and feels fluffy. It is white and because of this I have to wash it regularly. I wear fake tan and when I sweat, it seems to bring it off so I end up with an orange wrist band. Lovely. For this reason, I always wash it after every gym session so it is kept in good condition and always ready for the next stairmaster session. The wrist band is thick and a good sweep of it across the brow makes the forehead dry. The band is really absorbent which makes it good for using when you do not have too much time.
I find this a really stretchy band and I imagine it will fit anyone from slim wrists like myself to larger ones. It does leave a slight mark on my skin after wearing it as it does fit quite snug. This is necessary though as you do not want it flapping around whilst you work out.
This is a nice branded band and fits snuggly on my wrist. What I like best about it, is the size as it takes seconds to use it. I do not really like the colour as it can get really filthy quite instantly. Since using this band on the Stairmaster I feel much more confident on the machine and much fresher. You really do not want sweat running into your eyes and blinding you!
If I bought it again I would buy a blue one but on the whole, it achieves it's purpose and it is a reliable item. I find the price quite expensive for a bit of fluff but I needed one so I had to buy it.
