My newest running accessory obsession is absolutely the Merino Wool Buff!  It is multi-functional, sporty, and cute all at the same time.   Best of all:  it performs tremendously!  

Living in Minnesota brings different weather challenges.   For most of the winter, it is bitterly cold with sometimes ferocious wind.  But, then there are weeks like the last week.  The morning run is a bit windy, but after a few miles the wind and temperatures feel amazing.  Spring is in the air!  You feel excited to be alive and running in such an awesome state as Minnesota!  

I have been very pleased with the functionality of my new merino wool buff.  In the picture below, I demonstrate some of the ways that I have been wearing it.   It wicks sweat and is not too bulky or heavy.  I hardly even notice it when I run.  It has been on several types of runs too; from tempo, to long and short runs. 

I wear this Buff proudly, and the best part is.... it's not just for sport.   I have worn it as a scarf as well!  Doesn't it look great with my purple coat?  PS:  I "may" have requested the eggplant color just for this purpose.  

I have a few favorite ways that I like to wear my buff.  For me, with my climate,  I have gotten the most use out of my buff as a neck and face gaitor.  I pull it way up over my nose for the chilly runs and then it easily folds down to cover just my neck if I get too hot.  I also have a lot of hair, so I like it as a headband as well.  I bunch it up....throw it on and go!  

Another great feature of the Buff is it's ease for washing!  Once out of the wash, I don't dry it.  I lay it flat and it dries in no time!  If you have more questions about different ways you can wear your buff, just check out the video below!  I love mine so much that I am looking into a few different colors!  They even have tie-die!  How cool is that?  Right now on the Buff website, they are offering FREE shipping with any $40 order.  Hurry, you won't want to miss it!
