2XU Run Visor Review Facts
Watch Video Review

The 2XU Running Visor is a wonderful, lightweight, and inexpensive running visor that customers just seem to love. This visor comes in so many different colors that many runners feel like they have to purchase multiples to match every outfit. There is a color to fit anyone’s style and personality. The one size fits all aspect of this visor, in the way of an adjustable velcro strap on the back, makes it so almost anyone can wear this and be comfortable doing it.

When you are running it is important to keep yourself cool, and that is where this visor can help. The breathable material and the open top of the visor are ideal to help prevent you from overheating while on the go. Many runners like to wear some form of a hat when they are on the run to help keep the sweat from their faces, but a lot of people do not realize how much wearing a closed top cap can increase their body temperature. If you are a runner that overheats easily and enjoys wearing a cap, give this visor a try, as customers love what it does for them when they are running, especially longer distances and in warmer temperatures. In addition to the breathable materials, the sweatband uses moisture-wicking materials to help guide the sweat away from your face and allows it to evaporate easier, in turn keeping you cooler and drier.

This is an all around good running visor with a favorable price point and a great look that customers love and recommend.

Use

Customers use running visors for a plethora of activities and purposes. Visors will do more than just shield the sun from your eyes when you are out for a run on a bright and sunny day. It is nice to not just keep the sun out of your eyes but to keep the sun off your face in general. Even if you are wearing sunblock there is always the risk of sun damage, and this is just an extra barrier between you and the sun. The visor will also help keep your sweat out of your eyes, which is always nice because you will not have to carry something with you to wipe your sweat, or wear a sweatband, the visor will take care of all of that for you.

Some runners enjoy that they can use the curved bill of the visor to make themselves into a kind of visual cacoon and block out the rest of the world, focusing only on their running and what is in front of them. Be careful with this though, because it can and will reduce the field of vision and possibly your awareness of any obstacles you may encounter over your head. One runner commented that she hit her head on a low hanging branch because she did not see it coming.

Size

The 2XU Run Visor is a one size fits all visor so you will not have to worry about the size. The visor comes with an adjustable velcro strap on the back to make sure you get a custom and secure fit that will be comfortable for anyone. Customers have commented that they like the adjustable strap as they can make the visor fit comfortably and they will not have to worry about it falling off or becoming too tight while they are wearing it.

Durability

Customers have not had any problems with the 2XU Running Visor when it comes to durability. The visor is made out of 100% nylon and it does not seem to have any problems at all with premature wear and tear. The biggest issue that runners have with the durability of the visor is the sweat stains. Some runners have commented that after just a run or two the visor gets very noticeable sweat stains. The visor is washable, recommended on the cold cycle in the washing machine and hanging up to dry, so that will help with the stains, but some customers have stated that they have a hard time getting it completely clean.
Breathability
Breathability

Breathability

The 2XU Running Visor is not only made to be breathable but it also offers a sweat-wicking headband which is going to assist in keeping you cool. The visor, as is with all visors, does not have anything that covers the top of your head so this feature alone is enough to ensure the breathability. The actual materials of the visor, however, offer even more breathability.

The sweatband of the visor is made out of a sweat-wicking material which is ideal in helping keep the sweat from your face and keeping you as dry as possible. The sweat will be pulled towards the bill of the visor and will drop away from your face. Customers love that when they are wearing this on a run they will not have to worry about becoming too hot or the sweat becoming a nuisance. Staying cool is essential when you are running, as you do not want your body to overheat. Many runners make the mistake of running in a ball cap and find that it is just too hot for them, but they give this visor a try and fall in love. If you want to stay cool and as dry as possible then this is the visor for you.
Flexibility
Flexibility

Flexibility

There is not much to say about the flexibility of the 2XU Running Visor. The headband of the visor is not stiff and it will easily move and flex to give you a wonderful and comfortable fit. It has to be able to move and conform to your head, as it is a one size fits all kind of visor. The bill itself is not too stiff either. It will definitely hold its shape which is important but some runners like to roll and adjust the way the bill sits and looks, and this visor will allow you to easily adjust it to fit your style and needs.
Weight
Weight

Weight

The visor is lightweight which customers love. They do not want to feel like they are carrying too much on their head when they are running and they do not have to worry about that with the 2XU running visor. As you run for longer periods of time and begin to sweat the sweatband will start to collect moisture which will slightly increase the weight of the visor, but not by too much. There is not a lot of information on exactly how heavy the visor is, but customers have not complained about it at all so that is always a bonus.
Protection

Protection

The 2XU running visor offers a lot of various types of protection that you will love and appreciate. The visor, obviously, protects your eyes from the elements. The sun being the big one; the bill of this visor is big enough to keep the sun out of your eyes on bright sunny days. The visor will also help shield your eyes and part of your face from rain if you decided to go for a jog during a rain shower, or if it starts to drizzle while you are already out. Customers have commented that they have worn this visor multiple times in the rain and it was good at shielding their eyes from the raindrops.

The visor also offers excellent UV protection to help you out when you are running in the sun. Keep in mind that the top of your head is exposed when wearing this, or any visor, so you may want to consider sunscreen if you do not have a lot of hair to protect the top of your head.
