I do love all things BUFF ®. It wasn't a surprise that when I received the newest product, I would love it instantly! The pack run hat is ultra light-weight, wicking and very compressible. It comes in 4 different snazzy colors and if you're anything like me, you'll want the brightest color! It also has reflective properties! The majority of my runs are in the wee morning hours when it's dark, so the extra reflection is a huge plus for me!
I have worn this hat in very hot weather, during rain storms and during cooler morning runs and it has performed very well. My head never felt hot and it's so wicking that after my runs the hat is actually drenched! It washes well, although I've always hand washed it - I'm slightly OCD that way.
I do love that this hat has a bit of pizazz to it as well! I'm not the most hip person at 37 years old. I'm not sure that this mom of two could actually pull off the look that I went with here, but it was sure fun trying. Can you see the BUFF ® trademark logo on the underside of the brim?
Here are a few specs:
- Lightweight, weighs only ONE ounce
- Packable with a crushable brim that regains its shape for reliable sun protection
- 4-way stretch fabric for comfort
- UPF 50 protection
- Fastwick fabric side panels wicks away moisture and improves breathability
- Low profile sweatband keeps perspiration out of eyes
- Adjustable elastic cord at back for comfort fit
- Reflective tabs
My ONLY reservation with this hat is that I just don't really like the way it looks on me. It's absolutely fabulous with it's other properties! Nonetheless, I do see myself continuing to wear it. The brim of the hat is designed to block the sun from your eyes and it really does great job. However, it sits very low on my head. I know that it sounds vain, but I love my fashion when running. Isn't that part of the fun?
This hat is reasonably priced at $32 and would definitely be extra awesome in very hot and sunny climates due to it remarkable ability to wick and keep the runner cool!
