In warmer weather, lightweight baseball-style caps with mesh panels are the ideal sports accessory--they keep the sun out of your eyes and off your face. Some hats and visors also have built-in headbands to help absorb sweat. Most distance runners deal with excessive perspiration on their face and neck. One good tip is to wear a bandanna around your head and adjust the mesh cap on top of it. Look for caps with Velcro closures to get the best fit. Women who wear ponytails: Look for caps with the hole in the back; you can slide your ponytail through it and your hair stays out of your way.
If you don't like to cover the top of your head, a sports visor works well.
