Gear Review: Buff Headwear

While it felt like summer would never end for many of us, I'm super excited to start getting into the cooler weather here in the southeast.  With cooler weather comes gear change-overs and one piece of gear I love to use is my Buff (R) headwear!  With more than 10 ways to wear it, I can use it nearly every day!

Buff (R) products are a huge part of my life as both a runner and long-distance hiker.  When I discovered there was a merino wool line I definitely needed to get one.  Merino wool is definitely a smelly, sweaty person's best friend.  With it being a 100% natural product it doesn't hold in odors like synthetic fabrics do.  This is a huge selling point for me!  Another great feature of merino is the breathability factor.  In the summertime it can actually keep you cooler by wicking away moisture and in the winter time it can help you retain more heat.  Merino wool also has a super soft feel against your skin.  

 A great headband for days when it's not crazy cold...

When I'm out hiking I've always got a Buff (R) product in my backpack.  I can use it as a headband to keep my hair out of my face when I'm guiding.  I also love wearing it as a hat when I climb into the higher elevations.  It also makes a great balaclava-style face mask for me at cooler temperatures too!

 ...and a great hat when it IS crazy cold!

Buff (R) products are a great addition to my running and hiking wardrobe.  I've got several products from Buff, Inc. and while many other companies try to copy, I find they don't compare!

Do you own any Buff (R) products?  What's your favorite way to wear it?
