  • How do bikers avoid hayfever? Wearing a mask or bandana around your face can filter out most of the pollen.
  • What is the best bandana for dust? The Velu range offers impressive protection against all kinds of airborne particles.

In the sultry, dusty summer heat, a bandana can serve many purposes. Some people use these small cloth squares to protect exposed skin. You may also see bikers wrap a bandana around their face to keep out the urban pollution. For snowboarders and skiers, the same arrangement helps to block the icy air.

No matter how you like to use your bandana, the super comfortable Velu range will get the job done. These stylish kerchiefs are made from soft, breathable material. In addition, they are an effective filter for pollen, dust, pollution, mold, and more.

What is a MicroFlex bandana?

Whereas traditional bandanas are made from plain-woven cotton, Velu bandanas are made from MicroFlex. This smart, recycled material offers several key benefits.

MicroFlex fabric

The first is that MicroFlex wicks away moisture. When you’re working up a sweat in the mosh pit or blazing along the highway in 100-degree heat, that’s pretty important. The material also dries quickly if you’re caught in the rain.

In addition, MicroFlex is very soft and flexible. This makes it super comfortable to wear for long periods. Furthermore, you can wear your bandana in multiple ways.

The other main positive attribute of MicroFlex is that it works like an air filter. The bandana can block most harmful airborne particles, from cigarette smoke to pesticides and cement dust. At 24 inches across, they provide comprehensive protection. Wearing Velu is a great way to keep your lungs in good shape.

As a side note, these bandanas are easy to wash and designed to maintain their shape over time.

Super comfortable, amazing designs

The word “bandana” actually comes from the Hindi for “tie-dying”. Early examples of this square cloth were packed with amazing colors.

Incredible designs

Velu continues this tradition, with a little help from some independent artists. There are eight vibrant designs to pick from, with a different look on each side of the bandana. The artists make a cut from every sale, and their work is really fresh.

Breathe easy in style

It’s not just the art community that Velu is supporting. Being made from recycled material and shipped in eco-friendly packaging, these bandanas are truly sustainable.

“As avid festival goers, we were tired of using lame bandanas that we struggled to breathe through and that didn’t actually filter anything–we decided to change what it meant to wear a bandana. After spending 9 months tinkering, our team finally succeeded in engineering the perfect fabric: MicroFlex” — Velu on Kickstarter

Breathe easy

If you hate coughing your way through festivals or biking through dust, these bandanas offer great protection. They are also eco-friendly and very stylish.

The downsides

Not everyone will appreciate the psychedelic design, but that’s merely a matter of personal taste. They are certainly more interesting and original than plain cloth or those ridiculous skull masks!
