UV Buff – A Review 

Disclaimer: I received the UV Buff 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!

A few months ago I received a UV Half Buff to review (you can read the review here: UV Half Buff – A Review). I really loved the UV Half Buff so I was excited to check out and review the full UV Buff.

These are SO versatile, which is why I love them so much. If you remember with the UV Half Buff I really liked wearing it around my wrist to wipe my sweat and nose (eww). For the Full Buff I love it as a head band. It is a great size, stays put and is so perfect for keeping the gallons of sweat that come off me out of my face when I run.


Living in Sacramento, the UV Buff has been great for my training. In case you don’t know, California is in a pretty terrible drought and it has been very sunny and hot! However, I was looking forward to trying out the UV Buff in the Winter & cold weather, but now that I am moving to San Diego that won’t likely happen. But that’s okay, because these were made for the sun! Here are some of the benefits (from the Buff website):

No more excuses for sunburns. No more hiding in the shade. UV BUFF® headwear keeps the sun fun while blocking 95% of harmful UV rays*. Hour after hour, COOLMAX® Extreme fabric wicks away sweat to keep you cool and Polygiene® Active Odor Control neautralizes odor. Now that’s cool

  • Blocks 95% of UV rays*
  • Soft, breathable Coolmax® Extreme fabric
  • 100% seamless
  • 12+ ways to wear
  • Polygiene® Active Odor Control
  • Moisture-wicking
  • Thermal protection from cold & wind
  • Quick-drying
  • 2-way lateral stretch
  • One size fits all adults

Buff USA is sponsoring #BibChat on Tuesday, Sept. 22nd at 8pm CST. Join the chat, make some new runner friends & you may even win a Buff!!

On a final note, it seems like everyone’s dogs love these too. There are a ton of cute pictures all over social media of dogs sporting the Buff. Since I don’t have a dog I wanted to see what my cat would think…I think she likes it 🙂
