"Disclaimer: I received a CoolNet headband from BUFF USA to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!"
I have been a fan of BUFF USA for years. You know, the company that makes the original buffs for Survivor? I’ve tried out many types of their buffs as well as the UV arm sleeves and have always been impressed with their quality and functionality. I tried their cold weather gear, and now it’s time to try warm weather, because duh – I live in Arizona!
I don’t tend to wear headbands much because my hair is very thin and fine – and the bands sometimes slide right off. The CoolNet headbands has grippers built in so they stay in place – and I’m happy to report they work great!
The first time I wore it was on Global Running Day, when it was around 90 degrees. Worked great!
I also wore it in a 5k race in the heat, and it stayed perfectly in place. I was also worried that it would feel hot on my head, but honestly I don't even notice it!
I love that it offers sun protection of 50+. I hear that if you freeze it before your run, it will help keep you cool – I’m going to try it on my long run this weekend.
