Eric Javits 'Squishee® Champ' Custom Fit Visor
Cute visor. Not like your typical athletic visor. Initially wore it for the Indian Wells BNP Paribas tennis tournament and it kept me comfortable without any facial sunburn. I ended up wearing it every chance I could all year.. Took it to Cabo and a cruise and the SPF 50 protection kept my face completely safe from the sun's harsh rays. Got compliments on it every where I went. Love it. Very stylish and protective at the same time. I like that the band is adjustable. Perfect for relaxing on a lounge chair as the back of the visor sits flat unlike most brimmed sun hats. One of the best purchases made.
sophistications blends with function
A few weeks after a facial peel, I was off to France for a month. I needed to protect my skin while still looking stylish and sophisticated. I purchased this visor because it would accomplish both goals. It is a beautiful natural weave of very flexible material that packs easily and adds a classy, sporty look to any outfit. It has a large wide brim with SPF 50 protection to shield your face better than any visor I have seen. Ingeniously, the soft, comfortable sweat band is removable for washing! This visor was priced at the high end which made me hesitate at first, but ultimately, I am happy with this item which will provide me with much needed protection on my face for a very long time. I got the black band which goes with everything I own. I do a lot of walking even when not travelling, so I always need a good visor.
I actually also purchased the Squishee wrap around visor with an open top and wider brim for immediately after a facial procedure. It is also great and easily packable. Both visors minimize hat hair and are fully adjustable. Perfect!
This is a nice visor. My "average" rating is due to what I consider to be a material design defect: the velcro on the back of the visor is installed such that the "sticky" side of the velcro directly touches the hair. For those of us with curly hair, taking the visor off requires -- literally -- pulling out our hair . . . Considering the price of this item, I would not expect to lose my hair from wearing it.
This is my second Squishee Visor. I loved the first one so much, ordered a darker color for a more "formal" look. These are totally adjustable, comfortable and look very chic! I bought the tan/tan and the dark brown/brown combos. The white/tan looks too sporty for my tastes. The darker version looks chic enough to wear to a semi formal outdoor event. I love that I can shade my face without getting "hat head" and the terri covered forhead cushion is removable for washing! These are totally trick!
