What Makes A Better Stocking Stuffer Than A Merino Wool Buff?

Disclaimer: I received a Merino Wool BUFF® 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!

The great thing about the BUFF® brand is that they offer a wide range of products.  Anything from the original BUFF®, to Buff® Hoodies.  A great option for late fall and winter running is the Morino Wool BUFF®. 

The details according to the BUFF® website are as follows: 

 “The classic BUFF® headwear shape, but with a few extra inches of length for cozy protection, it features the natural moisture management and odor control properties outdoor enthusiasts love most. Made from soft 100% natural Merino wool, the Merino Wool BUFF® feels great next to the skin, and it keeps you warm even when it’s wet. It’s the soft, breathable extra layer of insulation you need for chilly days. Plus, BUFF® donates 1% of the proceeds from Merino Wool BUFF® to the planet so you can feel warm and fuzzy on the inside too.”

  • 100% natural merino wool
  • 12+ ways to wear
  • Merino Wool’s natural qualities include: water repellent, odor resistant, flameproof, durability, UV protection and natural stretch and elasticity
  • Thermal protection from cold & wind
  • Cool in the summer, extra layer of warmth in the winter
  • Semi-seamless — small, unnoticeable seam on top and bottom of Wool BUFF®
  • Quick drying
  • One size fits all adults

Traditional BUFF® on the Right, Merino Wool on the right. 

I have been using this Merino Wool BUFF® for about a month and have found a couple great uses for it.  First, my favorite way of using it is as a cap. It is a lot like wearing a actual cap, but thinner, not as tight on your head, while still keeping your head just as warm and wicking and moisture away. 

Also got the days that it’s maybe a little warmer, a headband. 

The only bad thing about the head band is that it is thicker around the forehead than a normal BUFF®.  

There are really so many ways of wearing the Merino Wool BUFF®.  No matter which way you choose, it is comfortable and also looks good, but most importantly, it will keep you warm but not too warm.  All this makes the Merino Wool BUFF® a must have this winter.  The great thing is, itcan be used for running, any fitness activities, or justto wear on cooler days.  Plus it will make a great stocking stuffer for your favorite runner! I know I would love to get another one and this one will get a lot of use.
