Last year, I had the opportunity to try out a BUFF® from Buff USA. You know, they make those cool buffs seen on Survivor? When I was offered the chance to try a Merino Wool BUFF (R), my first reaction is “well I live in Arizona, so there’s no way I would be able to use one”. Then I started reading up on the benefits of using them as an insulator and thought I would give it a try. It was also 95 degrees when I said yes, but as of this morning was 37 degrees. So yes, wool has a place in Arizona!
- Microclimate control – acts as an insulator to help regulate temperature
- Odor Resistant
- UV Protection
- Moisture Management – naturally moisture wicking fiber
- 100% merino wool – super soft and non itchy
When I first received it, I loved the pattern and texture even more than I thought I would. I immediately started envisioning this as more than just a running accessory, but also a stylish fashion accessory that would keep me warm. It is REALLY soft. I wore as a scarf for a few runs, and also to work and going out with the girls!
I went on to buffusa.com to look at all the color/style options and WOW – there are so many cool ones to choose from. They range in prince from $27-$32 each. I’m going to need to add to my collection, for sure.
The verdict: I love the versatility and texture of the Merino Wool BUFF. Now I know that it can help you regulate temperature, no matter what kind of climate you live in. This will be a part of my running gear all year, not just in the winter!
