Shady Lady Run Visor
light and comfortable
I wore this for a marathon. It was so comfortable, and light, allowing for my head to breathe and wick sweat away. I bought it in black. The fabric easily conforms to your head with no uncomfortable digging.

Wonderful, except the Velcro
I adore this visor and the associated hat. It fits well, is lightweight, and is durable. I love that the brim extends a bit further around the head than a traditional hat. Overall, I just love it. There is, however, one tiny problem. The Velcro "loop" side is out. So if the size is made larger, the loop part of the Velcro shows and gets snagged on everything. All it would take is switching the Velcro hook and loop sides to opposite spots. One tiny frustrating thing...

perfect for running on sunny days
This visor was just what I needed for a long run on a sunny day. Kept my face well shaded without limiting my visibility at all. I'm not normally one to wear ANY headgear (I can't even keep a headband on while running), but this visor was so lightweight and well-fitting that I wasn't bothered by it at all. Another plus - I sweat a lot and this guy kept the sweat off my face for an entire two hour run, and didn't even smell afterwards!

This is a great visor... Fits well, and covers the face. The "bill" in not huge but has good coverage. Very sporty, light and easy to adjust.

When did visors become final sale?
I must have somehow totally missed that all headwear was Final Sale when I ordered this. I'm wishing I had gone in-store and looked at this before purchasing. Not as thick and high quality as the visor I purchased 2 years ago and despite the fact that it was full-price I apparently can't return it?

Cute visor - But not for me
I loved the coral color online but it is much brighter in person. Has a cute striped section under the visor that is not shown on-line. Unfortunately, the visor is not big enough for my head - the adjustable velcro is not long enough to work.

Pretty and comfortable
I bought this visor to replace my old LLL visor from about 2 years ago. I hope that it can last just as long. (My other visor is still in fairly good condition, just showing a little wear but not falling apart).
In regards to aesthetics, I like the color options as well as the neutral colors. I like how some of the color options are two-toned. Also, the laser-cut design is cute.
Functionally speaking, the hat is extremely lightweight, which is what attracted me to it first. While some people might misconstrue the lightweight design for poor quality, I consider this a critical factor for a running hat/visor. The top of the visor which fits around your head is wide but thin. I think this helps to wick moisture across the surface and dry quickly.
For the fit, I am petite and would say that my head is a little on the small side. I find that I do have to tighten the adjustable strap quite a bit, it overlaps a bit beyond the Velcro. I was concerned it would not hold, but it held perfectly in place for an entire half marathon. It is easy to adjust as well.
I don't have any real awareness of the hat during running. It's not heavy, it's not saturated in sweat, it's not itchy, it's not moving. It does nothing it shouldn't do, and everything it should. Keeps the sun out of my eyes and is comfortable. I've washed it a few times and it is holding up well. I already bought another color and would love one more to stash and save. I recommend this visor.

I run with a visor all year when the weather permits, mainly to shade my eyes. I find billed hats to be too hot and my pony tail usually interferes with the hat somehow and I end up being uncomfortable. I tried this visor out last weekend on a 6.5 mile run and it worked great. I paired it with a LLL ear warmer because it was it touch chilly and the combo was perfect. The visor is very light-weight and wicks moisture very well. I haven't washed it yet but I'm sure I will before too long.
I found the fit easy to adjust with the velcro band and it didn't pull or catch my hair. I had thought about getting the visor with the bow but didn't want all of that extra material flopping around, though the look was cute. This is a basic visor and that is exactly what I wanted.
I liked this visor so much I ordered the just released teal version. I'm sure I will get plenty of wear out of these this summer kayaking, hiking, running, vacationing, etc.
