Bibrave Product Review: Buff Hoodie

Disclaimer: I received a Buff Hoodie to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

Buff. How I hadn’t heard about them prior to becoming a Bibrave Pro is beyond me. I’ve tried and fallen in love with their half and full buffs and when the opportunity came up to try their thermal hoodie, I jumped at the chance. Forgot about the buffs? Head over to read what I thought about their half and full buffs!

The Buff Hoodie is just that, it’s a hoodie you put on and take off as you choose (and hey, maybe look a tad homeless when leaving work depending on how warm you need to be). The way the hoodie is designed makes it warm. The hood itself is thermal and it also has a buff sown in to provide neck and face coverage

Buff + hood= hooded buff!!! Or just a removable hoodie 🌨💨🌬 @buff_usa #bibchat #buff

The material itself is Polartec® Thermal Pro® material. Read, it’s warm and wind resistant. With the buff worked into, you get neck/face/ear coverage. It also means mom isn’t yelling at me to cover my ears when I go out! How warm is it? Warm enough that even at 0* Fahrenheit, while getting off of work, I don’t have to worry about freezing when I’m warming up my car to go home!!

It’s also wonderful for running outside during the winter (should you have time to do that in daylight hours, which is currently not me. It does stay in place when you run (and yes, I did test that out on a treadmill just for fun!!). It stays in place well and if you get too warm, it’s easy enough to bring the hood down until you need it, but still get some head and neck buff coverage.

Can't be yelled at that I don't keep warm over the winter! #cleveland @buff_usa #bibchat

Like outdoorsie type things (I don’t know, skiing, snow boarding, etc?)? Perfect for people who hang outside over the winter. Perfect for the skier/snowboarder or for someone who does the snow removal type thing. A perk to it is that since it’s a piece of its own, if you go inside, you can take it off and let it dry out while you recuperate.

I honestly am a huge fan and really don’t have any complaints about it. I haven’t washed mine yet, but plan on using it on some more runs once I can get outside to do that!
