Disclaimer: I received an Original BUFF 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 love to point out when companies are working to offer more sustainable products. BUFF has reinvented their Original BUFF to now be made of 100% recycled REPREVE® Performance Microfiber fabric. The Original BUFF strikes just the right balance of being able to keep you warm during the cooler months and providing moisture wicking fabric for the warmer months.

I love wearing my BUFF especially during ultras for when I might be sweating a lot to keep sweat out of my eyes or wipe off excess sweat as needed. In the winter it keeps my ears warm and is a great intermediary for when it's not quite cool enough to throw on a thick hat.

It also has UPF 50 Sun protection and with the 4 way stretch it's easy to have one size fits all sizing! I can easily share my BUFFs with my husband and they don't get stretched out.

See below for ideas of how to wear your own BUFF! I personally like using it as a headband or a neckwarmer, but there are so many options! I also use some of my half BUFFS to wear around my wrist during races so I can easy wipe up sweat or water if I spill too much on me.

I picked to test out the Breast Cancer Prevention Partners BUFF as seen below.

The pattern is beautiful and supports a great cause! That being said there's lots of other great patterns that range from reflective, to images of mountains that I also loved.
