This ban-du is of solid color, and custom ordered. Ban-Dus are made of three basic parts for ordering: the band, the du, and the trim.
For example, a popular combination is "black band, OD green du, black trim". Another popular choice is all OD green or all black. And customers can also order them with their team's colors or to match any existing gear they use.
Ban-du also comes with removable sweat strip. Product also comes in other fabric styles.
The Blackleaf Outfitters Solid Color Ban-du is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I won one in a contest on UMS. Even though I didn't get to choose the camo pattern I wanted, I am extremely happy to have it. It breathes while padding your head a little for when you get shot. It's very easy to put on, just like a bandana. The thing I like the most is the tails protect your neck from the sun, which is always a problem for me. They're very comfortable and look good at the same time.
Buy one if you want to protect your head from the sun, sweat, and paint. They're well worth it. You can't buy anything better for your head for $10.

I purchased a solid Olive drab Bandu from Blackleaf Outfitters earlier this year and have found it to be the solution to what I was looking for. It's a very well made product that I'd be very surprised if I ever ran in to any problems with seams coming out or tears/rips of any kind. I've washed it a few times and so far there hasn't been any colour fade. The Bandu kept my head and neck well protected and I found a noticeable difference on hot days keeping the direct sunlight off my neck. While I found it very comfortable the only thing I could say about it is that for me personally the Du could have been a couple of inches longer. The customer service was great and the shipping to Canada was only a fraction more than within the USA. I even received an email to confirm that I had received my order. This one of those small purchases that has gone a long way in making a day of paintball more enjoyable.
I'd without a doubt recommend this product to anybody looking for head covering. It's totally customizable fabric wise, very comfortable and extremely well made. Blackleaf Outfitter's have great customer service as well. I gave it a 10 because the only thing I could say about it was the length for me, but I'm sure if you asked they would do a custom length for each individual.
