    I'm not sure if I am allowed to post this here...but these are excellent wrapped around your head when racing (as long as you dont mind looking foolish)...they really work and dont drip either so are good under a headset...they are making my longer race sessions a lot more comfortable :)

    BTW I am not affiliated to these in any way...I am just passing on what I think is a good idea :)

    Pretty awesome! Will look into it :)
    I think you are allowed since you are not affiliated but I think you should do it in a Link and not posting the direct URL.

    hahahaha, I love the German product description! (translated into the same, wrong englisch):
    "fast drying and super sucking. Up to 9x fast beat suckiness, then wrings almost 90% dry"
    "wet towel not easy smell, healthy"

    Don't read them then...simple....
    but if you had joined in any of the rookie events you would have heard people compIaining about sweating.
    I cant comment on your posts as I dont remember seeing any.

    As I see a trend to "bad mood" in almost every thread I will post how "constructive critism" would look like:
    "Hey man, these towels are looking awesome, thanks for sharing! My head always gets hot while racing.
    PS: maybe this belongs in the offtopic section? :) "

    I really don't know why everyone seems to feel the need to attack each other...

    Although it is not really Ac news or related to AC, its not really sim hardware, but it is handy all the same to us sim racers

    What you could do in future is use the link button
    linking it to a web page to get rid of the web address in the forum.

    Type in "click me"
    copy web address you want to link too
    then hold down the left button on your mouse and move the courser back over the click me, you will see it turn blue, release the left mouse button and click on the chain in the bar above,
    7th one in from the left and paste the web address in there, you have now made a hot link.. tdaaaaaa.

    Give me a shout if you need help :) always willing to help

    Sorry, wasn't meant to be an attack. Even got a laugh out of your post. But still, not really AC related :/

    Hey no probs Keith, im 48 and self taught in pc stuff, many many hours of doing it wrong..:roflmao::roflmao::roflmao:
    Even the basics had me baffled, now i can kind of hold my own.
    so i try to pass on tips where i can to make the forum look neater where i can.

    oh and i sweat, i have raced in my underpants to keep cool.. no joke and you must of heard about naked Thursday... yep that was me in GTL..

    i also wear headphones and the top of my head under the band can get a bit sweaty..
    i have a fan blowing on me now, so it kind of works but can get a bit chilly half race distance at times.. So you item is better than the kitchen paper. that ive used in the past:thumbsup:

    Yes I have one of these types of cooling towels, not the exact one but similar - it does a good job, better than you'd expect, I used it while on my summer drives through Europe, no Air Con in the car (save weight yo!) and being a Welshman I can't deal with anything over 22C

    They look pretty good ! I play a lot of tennis and I finish all wet, but also I sweat a lot when sim racing (hot and humid weather here, you can imagine) I may buy one of those next time go to the US.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Yea I get pretty hot. I always race in underpants only. Lol. And I have a 12" fan running about 1 metre from me.. So this could be useful. Thanks
