UV Reflective Half Buff Review

UV Reflective Half Buff Review


Disclaimer: I received a 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’m pretty late getting into the Buff game. I’ve always wanted to try them but never did for some reason. When BibRave offered them to review I jumped at the chance to finally try one out.

It was love at first sight since it matched my Oiselle singlet!



I have a pretty small head so I was a little worried about the fit. Headbands don’t typically work for me. They never seem to stay put once I start running. My Buff didn’t budge though!


Bad day but an ok run. It's not all rainbows and sunshine. #realrunning

I even tested it out on a 13 mile long run. It stayed put the whole time.


Took @karagoucher along for my first 13.1 mile run since October 💖 #sundayrunday

Here’s a little back story on Buff. Buff is short for bufanda, which means scarf in Spanish. The company is based out of Spain. Buff started out as a solution to keep founder, Joan Rojas, head and neck covered while he road motorcycles. Since then it’s evolved into the staple of outdoor activity we know today.

One of the things I really like about Buff is it’s versatility. Mine is technically a UV reflective one, which blocks 95% of harmful UV rays. We don’t have a lot of UV rays in central PA this time of year though. What we do have is cold weather. I used mine one chilly morning as a neck and mouth covering for my early run.



I typically run “hot” and even when it’s cold out I find things over my face to be smothering. That wasn’t the case with my Buff. It kept my face protected but was also breathable enough that I didn’t feel like I was dying.

Here’s a link to all the different ways you can we a Buff.

Recently I got my official BibRave Pro Buff in the mail and of course had to bust it out for a trail run.



So at this point I’m pretty obsessed and want/need more!


Though I was provided a Buff(R) to review free of charge these opinions are my own.
