Back in late May I had been gifted a BUFF pack run hat from BibRave when they were handing out gear for our virtual summit. I immediately fell in love with the hat the minute I picked it up. I couldn’t believe how soft and light it was. It fit on my head perfectly. I took it for a run and was impressed at how much sweat it held. I am a summer runner by far. It’s my most favorite season to run in. The hotter, the better for me. But I’m also a huge sweater so even if I’m running only 1 or 2 miles, I need to be wearing a hat to help keep the sweat out of my eyes and to protect my face from getting too much sun. The upper panel of the hat provides UPF 50 protection, can you believe that?
When the campaign came up, I jumped on the opportunity to be a part of it. I don’t know about you but it’s often hard to find a good hat. Also, it’s not like you can really take a hat for a run to check it out before purchasing it so you need to rely on someone else to review it for you and let you know the good and the bad. I love that the BUFF pack run hats are so soft and compressible that they can fit in my pocket. After I received my hat for the campaign, I then quickly ordered 3 more, including one of them being the pack run visor. When I find something I like, I need it in all available colors!
When I ask other runners if they wear a hat to run in about half of them will say no because it makes them hotter. I can understand that with some hats for sure. The BUFF pack run hat is made of materials that help wick away moisture and helps your head breathe. I know that it may sound silly, but it really does keep my head cool in the hot sunny weather. The back of the hat has an adjustable elastic cord to help with your specific fit. Oh, and I’ve learned that it’s recommended that you hand wash your hat, and let it air dry! Sticking it in the dryer is a no no!
