UV Reflective Half BUFF – A Review

Disclaimer: I received the UV Reflective Half 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!

Since becoming a BRP and being introduced to BUFF® I have become a huge fan. The BUFF® is versatile, easy to pack (think hiking, camping, running trips) and comes in fun colors/patters. Most recenlty I had the opportunity to test out their reflective BUFF®. I am a major proponent of runners wearing reflective gear, bright colors and lights while running in the dark. The reflective UV Reflective Half BUFF® does 2 out of 3 of those things so I feel pretty confident that I’ll be seen during my runs – which is the number one thing I like about this BUFF®.

Here are the details of the UV Half BUFF® from their website:

Half the length of original UV BUFF® headwear, the UV Reflective Half BUFF® option offers efficient thermal properties, built-in sun protection, moisture management and reflective strips that are ideal for runners. Able to dry quickly and control odor, this sweat-wicking layer fits easily under a helmet. It’s a versatile, go anywhere piece wearable at least nine different ways.

  • Blocks 95% of UV rays*
  • Reflective strips
  • Multifunctional
  • Exceptional Moisture-wicking with its 4-channel fibers
  • Soft, breathable Coolmax® Extreme fabric
  • Cool in the summer, extra layer of warmth in the winter
  • Polygiene® Active Odor Control
  • Quick drying


  • Breathable
  • Versatile
  • Soft (I tend to get a really runny nose when I run and I like wearing my BUFF®on my wrist to wipe my nose. TMI but it doesn’t irritate my nose when I use it!)
  • Size – I prefer the half BUFF® to the full
  • Reasonably priced


  • None (in my opinion)

My favorite ways to wear my BUFF® are around my wrist (as mentioned earlier, I like to use it for my runny nose), wearing it as a head band; I also wear it like this but with my hat on when it is cold out. It keeps my ears nice and warm, and finally I like to wear it around my neck. I will wear it like this when it is cold or hot out – like I said it is super versatile.

How do you like to wear your BUFF®?
