I've always found sweat wrist bands impractical. The last thing I need when I'm already hot is a warm wrist band to make me even hotter.

It's not sweat free. It is made of cotton. It is going to absorb sweat and any other moisture. A sport loop is much better. This is a solution looking for a problem.

Oh my. The design is unfortunate looking (being kind) and it will be an absolute pain to wash and dry.
