BUFF® Pack Run Cap Review

One thing I am not sure that I have shared on my blog yet is the little hat obsession that I have. If you follow me on social media though, you may have noticed that I am almost always wearing a hat, especially in the summer. Hats are great protection from the sun and can also help hide a bad hair day! When I learned that BUFF® has a summer pack run cap that is as cute as it is functional, I knew I wanted to try it out!

Let me get to the point…. over the last few weeks this has become my absolute favorite hot weather/summer running hat!!! I have worn this hat during a virtual half marathon that went from humid to misting rain, a 4th of July trail race that was so hot I thought I would melt, and a race literally called the Meltdown which was 3 back to back 5k races that featured temps that went from warm to hot to scorching! Thanks to the BUFF® pack run cap the sun was not in my eyes, my sweat didn’t drip in my eyes, and it even kept the misting rain off of my face!

So thankful for my BUFF® Pack Run Cap during this 4th of July run! It kept me cool and the sweat out of my eyes! It helped me claim 3rd place in my age group for the 15K!

This hat is also so lightweight and breathable. I honestly forget that I am wearing it most of the time that I am running. That is a huge plus for me! I don’t want to have to fuss with or keep adjusting my running gear while running and luckily with this run cap I don’t have to! And can we talk about how cute these hats are!?!?! I am a huge fan of the pink and blue colors in the hat but BUFF® has several colors available in both the Pack Run Cap and also a Pack Run visor (which will be my next purchase!)

The Meltdown: 3 back to back 5K races in July! So thankful for my BUFF® Pack Run Cap! So lightweight that I forgot I was wearing it! It kept the sun and my sweat out of my eyes!!!

BUFF® Tech Fleece Headband Review

Disclaimer: I received a BUFF® Tech Fleece Headband as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review, find, and write race reviews! 


This  BUFF® Tech Fleece headband had been a game changer for me!! But hold on….Let me back up and tell you about this headband and then I will tell you why I love it!!

According to the BUFF® website this is a technical headband for winter wear, the Tech Fleece Headband provides warmth and wind resistance, while drying quickly during high-intensity workouts. This wind-resistant headband made of brushed Carvico fabric, offers optimal protection from both cold and wind.

So what does this mean?  It means this headband keeps your ears nice and toasty in the winter and also keeps the sweat off you head which helps keeps you warm as well! In the past I have been a fan of running in a beanie or winter hat but they are not very good at drying quickly and keeping sweat off of your head. So I would end my colder runs with little ice crystals on the outside of my hat where my sweat would actually be freezing!! You can imagine that this isn’t very warm!  Also if there is any kind of walk back to the car, wearing a wet from sweat hat would only make me colder!

Having a headband that dries quickly changes the game!! I cant tell you how many times I have been in the middle of a run, my winter hat soaked in sweat,  and gotten hit by a big gust of wind that sends a chill down my whole body. I’ve had the chance to wear the BUFF® tech fleece headband on a few chilly runs with some fun wind gusts and having my head covered by a DRY headband means that I am warmer and that makes this runner a fan!

Other things that I love about the BUFF® tech fleece headband:

  • It’s lightweight
  • My headphones fit easily under it so I can listen to my music and keep my ears warm
  • If I decide my ears are to warm it can easily be moved up above my ears
  • Functional and stylish!
