Activities

There are a plethora of activities and uses for running visors like the Fly-By. Of course, it is going to do an excellent job at keeping the sun out of your eyes and off of your face when you are heading out on bright, sunny days, but it has other uses as well. Keeping the sun off of your face might not seem like that big of a deal, but you do not want to risk sun damage if you can avoid it. Even if you are wearing sunscreen, it is always nice to have a little extra barrier between the sun and your skin, and this visor can help you achieve that.

The band of the visor works as a sweatband that will help keep the sweat and moisture off of your skin and out of your eyes while you are out and about. This is going to eliminate, or at least reduce the likelihood, that you will have to carry around something extra with you while you run to wipe the sweat from your brow, as the band will do an excellent job at soaking it up and keeping it out of your face.

If you are someone who enjoys getting outside and running under the warm sun but doesn't want to dampen the distractions the beautiful weather brings with it, the curved bill of the Under Armour visor can help. You can use the curved bill as sort of a visual cocoon that can be used to block out the world around you so can stay focused on the road ahead of you. Of course, use caution with this because even though it is nice to tune out the distractions, it will limit your field of vision. Even when you are in your own little world, you will still want to make sure you keep an eye out for obstacles that might get in your way, such as a low hanging branch or a crack in the sidewalk.

Style

There is not a whole lot of variation when it comes to the style of running visors; they all have the same basic look and design to them. You get a curved bill with a sweatband that stretches around your head and an adjustable strap so you can customize the size for optimal comfort. The Under Armour product is available in a couple of different color options; however, so you can choose something fun that will best suit your style. You can pick between after burn (orange), black and silver, formation blue, purple ace, tourmaline teal, or white and silver. Whichever color you decide to purchase, they all come with the UA logo on the front left side of the band and on the back strap, giving you some reflective detailing to help ensure you are staying seen while out and about in low light conditions.

Size

The Under Armour Fly-By Visor is a one size fits all cap, and as such, it is going to fit just about anyone who wants to wear it. Of course, if you have an unusually large or small head, you might have some trouble with the hat, but for the most part, consumers have not had any problems with the way it fits.

This product features an adjustable hook and loop closure on the back so you can customize the size to fit you as comfortable as possible. Under Armour really does strive to reach as many customers as possible with this product.

Comfort

Customers have suggested that the Under Armour Fly-By Visor is exceptionally comfortable, and most reviewers were very pleased by their experience while wearing it. It's ultra lightweight, so you almost feel like you are not wearing anything at all.

Consumers have also sung the praises of the way it fits and stays in place, stating that that is one of the most significant contributions to the overall comfort level. They do not have to worry about the visor slipping off their head or feeling too tight while they run. It does not need to be repeatedly adjusted. It just works and keeps you comfy throughout your workout.

It also helps by preventing some discomfort while you are active. The sweatband will aid in keeping the sweat from dripping into your face and eyes while you are out and about, keeping you relatively dry throughout your workout. Additionally, the curved bill assists in keeping the sun off of your skin and out of your eyes so you can see better and feel more comfortable while you are out and about.

Durability

The Under Armour Fly-By Visor is constructed out of high-quality material with superior construction, so you are going be able to keep this cap as part of your running gear for quite some time. You won't have to worry about premature wear thanks to the use of polyester material in the construction of the visor. Polyester is a super strong fiber that is not prone to ripping and tearing, so that is not something that you are going to have to deal with when wearing the Under Amrour product.

Of course, you're going to want to make sure that you are taking proper care of the cap and keeping it clean. You will want to wash it according to the instructions on the tag, so you are not speeding up the wear and tear process. If you are not following the direction accurately, you run the risk of decreasing the lifespan of the visor.

Something that customers have had issues with is the hook and loop closure. After washing the visor a couple of times, you might have a bit of trouble with it sticking correctly, causing you to have to replace the strip so you can still wear it. It is not a deal breaker from some but can become a hassle.

Breathability

Whenever you are heading out for a workout you want to try to make sure that whatever you are wearing on your body is going to be breathable, you want as much air flow into it as possible to help protect you from overheating when you are in the middle of a run.

Yes, the majority of the visor is open, exposing most of your head to the elements so you can get all of the air and breeze that you need to keep you fresh and comfortable. That being said, the part that is covered by the sweatband is also going to allow a decent amount of airflow through it, so you are not stuck getting too hot under the hat. The band is constructed to help soak up the sweat and keep it off of your face, but the polyester materials will dry quickly and prevent you from running around all day in a damp hat. It is going to allow the air to flow through it to dry you off and let the sweat to evaporate quickly.

Flexibility

There isn't a lot to say about the flexibility when it comes to the Under Armour Fly-By Visor as there is not a whole lot to it. The headband itself is not stiff and can easily flex and move with you so you can get a great fit that is comfortable around your head. It has to be able to mold and conform to the shape and can adjust to the size of your head since it is designed to be one size fits all.

The bill is not really stiff either. It can hold its shape pretty well, which is crucial for some customers. There are some runners like to be able to adjust and roll the bill so they can customize the way it sits and looks. This visor is going to allow you to do that easily enough so you can adjust it to fit your style.

Weight

As mentioned above, customers have stated that the Under Armour Fly-By Visor feels ultra lightweight on your head when you are wearing it, barely feeling like you are wearing anything at all. You are not going to feel like you are carrying any extra weight along with you when you head out on a run or other outdoor activities. After you are on the go for a while and you start to excessively sweat you might add a little extra weight as it soaks up the moisture to keep it off your skin. The good part about that is that it is not going to hold the sweat very long and should be able to evaporate quickly enough so that it is not going to be a nuisance for too long.

Protection

You are going to want your running apparel to offer you a decent amount of security when you are heading out for your daily jog or outdoor workout. How much protection can a visor provide you? More than you might expect, actually.

Of course, you are going to get what you would expect, protection from the sun. It is going to help keep the light out of your eyes so you can see more clearly, while at the same time allowing you to use the bill to block out distraction around you so you can focus on what is in front of you. It is also going to help keep the harmful UV rays off your face. You might still want to use sunscreen when heading out on a sunny day, but this is going to be an extra layer between you and the suns rays.

Something that you might not expect from your visor is that it can give you a little protection if you head out in lower light conditions. Yes, some runners will still wear the visor if they are going out for a run when it is not bright out, taking advantage of the sweatband or the ability to tune out the world around them. The reflective detailing on the cap, located on the front and back in the way of the UA logo, gives you the ability to stay seem while you are out and about. You might want to consider still wearing other reflective clothing if you are running when it is not the brightest out, just as an extra precaution so you can stay as safe as possible.

Value

Customers will be able to appreciate the low to moderate price tag of the Under Armour Fly-By Visor. It is an excellent product with a decent amount of durability, and the best part is that it has a price tag that your wallet will thank you for. Reviewers definitely believe that this is a good value and are happy with their purchase.

Features

There are not a lot of features to this visor. It is pretty plain and simple. You will get a one size fits all construction so it can accommodate the vast majority of their customers, giving you the use of an adjustable hook and loop strap on the back for a more personalized fit.

It is constructed out of breathable materials that can help keep you dry and comfortable throughout the time you are wearing it. It is going to help keep the sweat and the sun out of your face, more importantly, your eyes, so you can stay safe and comfortable throughout the day. Additionally, the visor features reflective detailing in the way of the UA logo on both the front and rear of the visor, allowing you to stay seen when heading out in lower light conditions.

It has an affordable price tag that customers love, combined with a long lifespan to make it an excellent investment. There are also a handful of colors that you can choose from, making sure that there is a color out there that suits everyone. Some consumers may even opt to go for more than one, so they can have it in multiple colors.
