What I love about BUFF headwear is that there really is no limit to this brand’s range. How can one single headwear brand produce so many products, which can be worn in so many different ways, for such different purposes?

This week I was trying out the new Cool Bandana BUFF – a triangular shaped tubular garment with a certain “street” style. As my fashion style, quite frankly, couldn’t be much further away from “street”, I can’t say it will become one of my staples, but for my running wardrobe, I have a sneaking suspicion it will…

Out running in all conditions, I constantly suffer from chapped and sunburnt lips, of which no lip protection balm seems to prevent. I thought I’d give the Cool Bandana BUFF a whirl to see if it made any difference, and, to my surprise, it did! The product can be worn around your neck but also pulled up over your nose for wind and dust protection. It does an amazing job protecting your skin, and after a few trials on my weekly runs, I certainly noticed a difference. I was conscious that having material over my face while running would feel uncomfortable and claustrophobic, but I hardly noticed it was there. The almost silky texture of the fabric is extremely soft too, yet still manages to wick moisture away from the skin – what more could you ask for?
