BibRave Product Review: Merino Wool Buff

Disclaimer: I received a Merino Wool Buff 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!

My Buff collection grew again!!  I’ve tried and loved quite a few Buff Products (like their hoodie, Half Buff and Full Buff). When we had the chance to try their Merino Wool Buff, I jumped on the Buff train for sure!


My Buff Collection. The Merino Wool Buff is the Red Buff in the middle

For size comparison, the wool buff is about 3 of the Half Buff’s and a little more than one of the full buffs. It just means more ways to have fun with it! It also came in time for one of my first races of the year, the Hermes Chili Bowl Classic, which means I found a few of the fun ways you can wear it.

Because the Wool Buff is designed to keep you warm in colder weather, it tends to be longer (which might be a problem for some), but it really helps keep the cold out and your ears warm, something my mother is thankful for (can we count how many times I’ve refused ear warmers?). It’s also incredibly light weight so you tend to forget that it’s there. Because it’s long, you can get head and neck coverage all in one with it. Not a runner? Use it under helmets for biking or under gear for skiing, it doesn’t discriminate!

I have yet to wash mine (and I’ve worn it on a few runs), and it doesn’t smell. Yet. It’s good for wiping the sweat away, keeping your neck warm or all out wearing because you’re setting the new coolness standards. With marathon #7 coming up, it’ll be worn on race day and used in some capacity, even though the weather will be in the 60s!

I have yet to try this in warmer weather (it didn’t come for the Gasparilla Classic), but it’s also noted to provide coolness in the summer so you don’t feel like you’re going to overheat. Yes, it really does dry out fast after races!!!

How to wash this fun little toy? Hand wash in warm water with mild soap and lie flat to dry. Poor Fellow Pro Angie’s ended up in the laundry, but hark! it wasn’t the end of the world.

I continue to love my Buffs and really couldn’t find anything I didn’t like about my full buff. I can’t wait to try it out in warmer climates this weekend at one city. It’s really worth the $29 to have! And plus, the Buff People are awesome as it is!

Join us and Buff during Bibchat this week (March 15, 2016) at 9/8 est/cst to talk some Buff! there might even be some free stuff involved!
