Well, well, well. What do you know, BUFF® makes products other than awesome tubular, multi-functional hardware.  Introducing the BUFF® Pack Run Cap. This running cap stands out from other running caps because, unlike other caps, the Pack Run Cap can be folded, rolled up, or waded up for storage in your pocket, running pack, or tucking it into your waste band if you don’t want to wear it.  Everything on this hat is crushable, including the brim, which will go back to its proper shape providing continual sun protection. ​

​The Pack Run Cap is very light and is designed to fit around your head perfectly. The hat only weighs 1 ounce! You can sometimes forget that you are even wearing it. The material of the hat is also SPF 50, protecting your head from the suns rays. 

To keep the hat in place, BUFF® added an adjustable elastic band to keep the hat firm in place. For added safety, there is a reflective tab on the back and with the BUFF® logo on the front.  

I like the BUFF® Pack Run Cap a lot. It functions real well and is breathable as well as moisture wicking which makes it very comfortable on the Run. The Reflective tab and logo is a huge added bonus for me as a runner who primarily runs in the dark. 

My only complaint about the Cap is the brim, especially when it gets real wet.  Since it is crushable, the brim is flimsy and when water is added, it bounces around and blocks my vision a little. This is mainly done by my own doing since I like to dump water on my head during long runs or just dunk the Cap in the fountain. ​​


Overall, I think this is a great Cap and well worth the investment.  If you would like a chance to win one, joint us on Tuesday at 9:00PM on Twitter for #BibChat.   There will be prizes to be won!
