What do you wear on your head?

Hey guys I was just wondering what the most common items to wear while paintballing in the head area were and why. Me being a fairly sweaty person especially from the head I wear an underarmour skull cap and sweatband and then a hat on backwards on top of that. I have seen a fair amount of people wear touques/beanies on their head while playing and I was wondering what advantage that has? Does it soak up more sweat and keep it out of your eyes? I will be trying out wearing an underarmour touque tomorrow while paintballing and seeing for myself if I like it better than a hat. I do notice not a lot of people wear a backwards hat while playing at least not in tournaments and stuff is there a reason for that?

Any days not over 80 degrees ish I wear a beanie, a little bounce pad and absorbs moisture well. I usually have a headband on under that for sweat as well.

Hot days I wear just a headband, but a different kind. Regular is any headband but for the hot days like now I wear my Full Clip headbands and wraps, they absorb SOOOO MUUCCHHHH SSSWWWWWWEEEEEAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTT it is absurd and they are nicely padded, very breathable and use extremely comfortable materials. For my money the full clip headbands are the best headbands to date in paintball, to bat they didn't take off.

I wear a Valken head wrap. The top part is very thin so I stay pretty cool, but the band part is thick so it absorbs sweat well and also cushions hits.

I wear various sandanas and headbands, the sandana adds some padding and keeps paint out of my hair, headband under that for sweat.

Hmm I see ANS still has some full clip headbands I might have to pick one up and give it a try.

I think a lot of people wear things on their heads, such as beanies and caps for head protection, or for added bounce. However I never have worn anything on my head (except my mask). Also its never really been cold enough when I'm playing to make me wear a hat.

I honestly wear the skull cap and sweat band to try and control the sweat and the hat is just because it feels like my mask sits on my head better with a hat under it.

I wear a headband, actually, just a bit of cotton stretched around my head.
It doesn't really do much for me other than make me look cool, sooo...

People wear beanies for bounces and to keep paint/dirt out of their hair. I'll wear one if it's chilly but that's rarely the case in Southern California. Otherwise they're just too damn hot, and I can hear a little bit better without an extra layer over my ears.

I wear a sandana. Controls sweat, keeps paint out of my hair, and keeps the sun off my neck. Sometimes I'll throw on a headband on top of that for extra bounceability.
