Colorado Winter Tested – Buff Tech Fleece Headband Review

Disclaimer: I received a BUFF(R) Tech Fleece Headband 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!

I live in Colorado. This is an important fact for this particular blog post. I’ve never lived anywhere else and because of that, I’ve gotten used to the winters and have a plethora of warm clothes and jackets. Overall, our winters are not as harsh as they used to be when I was growing up (insert some story about walking to school uphill both ways in five feet of snow).

But seriously. They cancel school these days preemptively for the prediction of a few inches of snow whereas, in my day, it took a full-on blizzard before we got of our classes! #GlobalWarming and some other political hashtag.

However, this year, we were hit early with some brutal, wet, heavy snowstorms that caused a lot of damage to my property and others all across the city. It was cold in early October, just like the good ol’ days!

I was so glad to get to try this new product by BUFF(R). I love BUFF(R) products. I have a ton of BUFFS (see previous paragraphs about owning a lot of cold weather clothes). I use them for a lot of activities as I’ve written before. The Tech Fleece Headband is new from BUFF(R) and it’s definitely become a favorite.

This BUFF product is made for running in the winter.

“A technical headband for winter wear, the Tech Fleece Headband provides warmth and wind resistance, while drying quickly during high-intensity workouts. This wind-resistant headband made of brushed Carvico fabric, offers optimal protection from both cold and wind.”

I really like that it is just the size of a headband; I don’t have to spend time folding something just to go over my ears. While I love the regular BUFF for snowboarding, climbing and other winter activities to cover my ears and face at the same time, I don’t always need that extra fabric when I just want to keep my ears warm. Sometimes when the regular BUFF is folded into just a headband, it’s too think and too tight on my head, especially with glasses and headphones. The new Fleece Tech Headband is just one layer of fabric, stays in place AND is warm!

I also like that it is made from tech fleece. It keeps my ears warms even as it’s actively snowing (or I’m actively sweating) and dries pretty quick. It’s great for a cold-weather run, race directing or just scrapping off the car!

I really like this new product from BUFF(R). I’ve been regularly wearing this as we get into the Colorado Winter season!
