My Member Review

All golfers have probably seen and experienced that nasty sweat ring on hats in the heat of the summer. They are unappealing and quite frankly, a sweaty hat don’t smell good. You need to wash your hat frequently to get rid of the stain and stench. Lid Liners are disposable sweat absorbing liners for your hat that absorb the sweat and oil that would otherwise funk up your nice golf hat. They claim that it will fit on any type of head-wear item including helmets. They also claim that it will reduce redness on your forehead.

The directions are pretty much self-explanatory, but from their website:

• Remove peel strip from back of the liner.
• Place adhesive side against the front of the headband of your hat.
• Press firmly into place with the larger part of liner at the bottom of headband (Logo should be facing you when inserted correctly).
• Enjoy the comfort while you forget about redness, an irritated forehead, and sweat staining and ruining your hat.
• Average use of liner varies depending on activity being done. may not stick as well to sweaty or soiled head band.
• Best if used when you put your hat on for the first time that day.

There isn’t much to installing one. Even my first attempt only took a few seconds (see pic below of installed liner). They are very lightweight and the re-sealable package can easily be stored in your golf bag. My initial concerns with the product were comfort level and how well it would stick to the hat. I wouldn’t want this to fall out when I tip my hat to my adoring fans. It’s effectiveness at keeping my hat dry was also very high on the list.

After installing the liner, I put on the hat and was pleased with the comfort level. It actually made the hat more comfortable to wear. I removed it several times to see if it would fall out, and it didn’t despite the fact that my hat had not been washed from previous use. I headed to the golf course to see how well it would absorb sweat. The temperature was 91F with a dew point of 74F. Winds were light at around 10 mph. According to my weather app, it felt like 101F. It was very hot and humid summer day in Florida ideal for testing this product.

The Lid Liner definitely stood up to the task. After 5 holes in the blazing heat, my hat was dry even though my other clothing was getting soaked with sweat. There was a quick rain shower on hole 6 followed by a downpour on #7 which I waited out with some other golfers in the shelter area. After the rain ended, I finished the round with wet shorts and shirt, but my head was dry. I left the liner in my hat after the round to see how well it would stick, and I was pleasantly surprised that it was still in place the next morning.

Here is a pic of my hat after another round played in hot and humid conditions. I forgot to take one after my first round, but wanted to include a picture showing the hat dry. The dark area on the left is a shadow, not wetness. You can see the faint outline of previous sweat stains that didn’t come clean from previous use. It’s too bad I didn’t have these before.

I have looked at hat liners before, but ended up not purchasing with a price tag of over $1 per liner. With shipping and handling, the price of Lid Liners is less than $.75 per liner. To me, it is worth the cost to avoid washing my hat after each use in the summer. I actually found a golf course not too far from me that carries them. I might have to go there to get some. Since I’m there, I might as well play a round, right?

The added comfort factor was icing on the cake. I think it depends on the conditions as to how many uses you can get out of a liner. In the harsh conditions I played in, a single use was about all I cared to try, but I imagine in the cooler winter conditions, one liner could last several rounds. I put one in my motorcycle helmet and have used it five times so far, and it has yet to fall out.

To summarize, I find Lid Liners to provide a good value and are effective at what they were designed to do. They are very durable given that they are disposable liners. As far as aesthetics, they are not visible when wearing the hat, but they are visible when you take your hat off to shake your competitors hand after a round. They might give you a funny look, but they have probably been wondering how your hat stayed dry and stain free all day. If you wear hats, I highly recommend that you try these out.

    • So I played with @nevets88 on an rainy Friday morning and now he's witnessed both my best driving round of the year and one of my worst. I don't know if it was the weather or just how poorly I've been hitting the woods lately, but I kind of just gave up in the middle of the round. I wasn't frustrated, I just stopped caring. Stopped doing the little details to make sure I scored well. I guess it's a form of frustration. Anyway, that lasted all of an hour. After lunch we decided to hit the range and see what was going on. So here's my 7i swing from that day: I was hitting the irons pretty solidly on the course, too. Too much curve, swinging a bit too far right, but no big deal, it's a good playable swing. Here's the driver (WARNING: not for the faint of heart): Ugh. Look how far off the toe I hit it. That's become the new normal. When I hit it off the center, it does not get airborne. I've actually been playing better teeing off with 4i than I have with the driver. Sad. At the time, on the range and looking at the video on the phone while fighting the glare, I thought the issue was primarily path-related, so I worked on that. Spent a lot of time hitting 100 yard 7i shots with a little fade which turned the full swing shot much straighter, but I still couldn't hit the driver solidly without just hitting a punchy knock-down shot. With some more time to look at it at home, I realized the issue was how the sweetspot was loading in the backswing and how that affected transition. Been working on a different backswing feel and finally had some time hit some balls with it today. I hit my 2w instead of my driver because it's hard for me to tee up a ball at home (plus one time I popped one up and put a hole in my siding). Here's the raw swing, very similar look to the driver above: Yea it's skipping frames because of the lighting. Here's the 2w with the new backswing feel:   Still a little under to over in transition but much better than it was. Baby steps. Used the feel with the 8i and hit the ball really well. Don't recall hitting any toe shots which is my usual miss.
    • I did. 🙂 And maybe if you only say that it’s a problem in 30% of the questions then they will be able to say that most don’t think it’s a problem. 
    • I took the survey.  I feel like they were really bombarding me with different ways to get me to agree that "distance" is a problem in golf.  I'm afraid many won't be able to stand up to the pressure.
    • Day 5: In Colorado visiting my in laws and they got me some cheap golf clubs to keep here so I can just use those the one or two rounds a year I play here in Colorado Springs area. Spent 20 minutes or so hitting foam golf balls with the clubs to just get familiar with them. Will be interesting round tomorrow, but looking forward to it!
    • Iacas did you think it was as good as advertised? Did you stay over night? Is it conducive to hanging out in the evening with your own beverages or is it pretty standard to buy drinks at the bar?   Just curious about bringing your own bottles of wine, beer, and to hear other's experiences.   It's going to be a 3 night trip and alcohol adds up.
