REVIEW: NoSweat Disposable Helmet Sweat Absorber

Pad in helmet


When I first received a pack of the NoSweat disposable helmet pads, I was a bit skeptical of whether it’d be worth changing them out all the time.  It seemed like one more thing that I would have to remember to do before each game.  After using them in recent box lacrosse games, however, I’m jumping on the bandwagon.  These things rock.
