Disclaimer: I received a Tech Fleece Headband BUFF® to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!
I am a huge BUFF® fan. I have run almost every one of my 26 marathons with a BUFF® in hand (or on head or around neck….)
On of the things I struggle with on runs in the transitional months (like September and October) are having something I can wear around my head to keep my ears warm, but also not look like I am wearing a head scarf. I’ll admit that when I got my BUFF® Tech Fleece headband I thought that there was not way that this headband would keep my head warm. I have a big forehead (I feel) and it is super light. I run outside all year round and my mop of hair is thick enough to keep my noggin warm; so I often opt not to wear winter hats. But I was sure wrong. I found that this little gem keeps by head super warm!
If you are from the the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast region (like me) the weather between September and November is somewhat erratic. The temperature does not steadily drop. It’s cold one day and hot the next; so having tech fleece headband was clutch for the days where there was frost in the windshield.
I wasn’t really thrilled with the width of the headband…
Dont het me wrong; it blocks UV rays and it keeps my scalp protected! But I’ve found that folding it in half does the trick.
The other thing which I think is a win; Knit caps tend to hold moisture and not wick it away, which can also lend to them smelling a bit funky after a while. The Buff Tech Fleece headband wicks perspiration and moisture away so I could wear it for a while before washing it (don’t judge, I run almost every day!).
To quote Tim Murphy; my BUFF® fanboy status is real. The Tech Fleece headband is now part of my spring and fall essentials and I look forward to trying it through the winter!
