One of the perks of being a BibRave Pro from Bibrave.com is that I get to test out running products for free in exchange for an honest review. How cool is that?! The first product that I had the opportunity to try was the Buff® USA. You might be asking yourself, “What’s Buff®??” Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s awesome and it will change your life! Yes, your life will forever be altered. It has many uses and is great for all outdoor activities.

Before discovering this little gem, I was always on the search for headbands that would properly stay in place during my runs. I would get frustrated when they would fall out during a run or stretch out quickly and no longer be of use. But then I found Buff®! I can wear it so many ways and not have to worry about it falling out. The first place I wore this baby was on a run at the lake.
It was a beautiful day to use my Buff® as a headband and I liked knowing that my hair was being protected since I had just gotten it highlighted a couple of days before.
The next time, I tried my Buff® out as a wristband.
Although, this is not one of the official ways to use the Buff® per the website, I still liked using it wipe my face since it was pretty warm this day.
Then, I took my Buff® on a little trip to the trails!
The Buff® USA can be used as a dust mask for dusty trails OR you could use it to disguise yourself from a sneaky mountain lion! 😉
After the trails, I brought my Buff® to the beach!
This time I used it as a cap which served as protection from the September, SoCal sun and the salty air!
I even took my Buff® to a theme park!
That’s right, LEGOLAND pirates also enjoy using the Buff® while performing outdoor activities on their Lego pirate ships. 😉
The Buff® USA comes in allllll types of color combos and patterns. As you can see from my pics, I chose a National Geographic® print in a pink/purple color. Go checkout the website to see all of the beautiful colors/patterns to choose from! You could even choose a Survivor® Buff® and pretend like you’re on a desert island with your own tribe. The sky’s the limit!
I also liked that I could put my Buff® in the freezer before going out for a summer run to keep my neck and head cool. You can’t do that with a headband, ladies! So that’s what I did before going out on a sunset run…
Look how adorable it is next to a flower bush…It’s like a work of art! A functional work of art and well worth the investment! I’m really excited to use my Buff® during the winter when it’s cold in the mornings and evenings and my lungs are on fire from inhaling the cold air. I will be able to cover my neck and mouth…and presto! My run just became more comfortable and I might even be able to extend my normal run by a few miles!
Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this product since I was so unfamiliar with it. I kind of thought it looked a little ridiculous and never really considered adding it to my running gear toolbox. I was pleasantly surprised at not only the comfort and functionality of Buff® USA, but also the ease of use and the fashionable look that it provides. I would definitely recommend this product to all of my friends and I can’t wait to add some more to my collection!
Also, if you plan to run the Marine Corps Marathon next month, stop by the Buff® booth at the Fitness Expo to grab your official Marine Corps Marathon Buff® headwear!
It’s way more fun to run…in the Buff®! 😉 What’s your favorite way to wear your Buff® USA??!
