Running Hills w/UV Reflective Half BUFF

When I am getting ready for a run, I am looking for comfort and simplicity. I want to wear the least amount of clothing but it needs to keep me safe, keep me warm or cold, and it needs to make me look good on Instagram 😊. Any combo that fulfills those requirements is a combo I am looking for. The past couple of weeks I have been running with the UV Reflective Half BUFF®. This thing has been awesome for me. The BUFF® is a tubular headwear accessory that protects you from the sun, keeps back your hair, keeps you warm, and well there are a ton of other uses for it. Wrist band, that’s a good one when you get hot. Face mask, another good one for when you are running in Minnesota and its zero degrees with -14 degree wind chill. For me, the BUFF® keeps my hair organized, makes me visible with the reflective, and it is super simple.

BUFF = Messy Hair Solution

The UV Reflective Half BUFF® is perfect because I am kind of getting long hair and it bugs the crap out of me when it’s bouncing around. It is also a great solution for when I am playing volleyball and I did not shower that day. A couple weeks ago, Paul said to me, “Andrey, what is happening with your hair?!” Luckily, the BUFF® can neatly tuck it all back and not get in my face when I am killing it on the court. BTW team name in volleyball is “Sloppy Sets” (nbd).

Reflective Half BUFF w/Flash

Being a runner that runs in the early mornings or late evenings, visibility is extremely important. I run in downtown Minneapolis and I am crossing roads on every one of my runs. The reflective logo and the reflective pieces on the BUFF® are great for making me reflective and more visible. Pairing the half BUFF® and other reflective clothing and gear is great for morning/night time running.

The UV Reflective Half BUFF at Night

The BUFF® is such a simple accessory, which I absolutely love. I hate anything that gets in the way of me running. The UV Reflective Half BUFF® is small enough that it does not get in the way of my headphones but made from high quality material. It adds a layer of warmth in the winter but it’s breathable material so that I can wear it during volleyball and in the summer.

This multi-use accessory is a pretty cool addition to my collection of running gear. I have been able to find ways to use it outside of running and that is a nice feature that is not always outlined.
