As many of you may know, I am currently training for a half marathon. That means I’m doing a lot of running 🙂 It’s been a super hot summer up here in the PNW and I’m not complaining! While I love the heat, it does mean there is a lot more sweat and more accessories needed to protect you from the sun.

This is where my awesome new UV Half Buff comes in. 


Testing this Half Buff has been such an awesome addition to my training this summer! I have used it on almost all of my training runs since I got it and not only does it wick away the sweat, this one has UV protection so my fair skin and scalp don’t get sunburned! IMG_5178

I’ve used it as a headband

wore it around my wrist to wipe sweat


wore it underneath my visor to protect my scalp and soak up sweatIMG_5023

used it to create some cool running hair-dos  

(my ponytail is flipped underneath the Buff, no hair-tie required!)

and even used it in an ’emergency situation’ to prevent chaffing on my leg during a runIMG_4766

As you can see, this baby is versatile! The other thing I loooooove is it does NOT give me a headache. Many other headbands or head accessories give me headaches after wearing them for a longer period of time. Not my Buff! It also dries extremely quickly which is a huge plus. 

I also took my UV Half Buff to my first bikram yoga class. The room is 105 degrees, so the sweat is pouring. I had my Buff on my wrist to wipe off sweat and it worked great. 

You can use it for yoga, running, hiking, biking and almost any other physical activity. They come in tons of fun colors and patterns as well as a few featuring certain U.S. states. I have the Washington one, which features beautiful Mt. Rainer, and I would like to buy this fuchsia pink one because I love pink! IMG_4332

The Half Buff is not only functional, it’s also a fun and fashionable accessory that makes your workout that much more fun and exciting. I truly believe that if you like what you are wearing when you workout, you workout harder! Overall I love the UV Half Buff and I look forward to using it more in the future.

  1. I didn’t know there were half buffs! I have several full size buffs, which I love for working out during cold weather. I find them to be too bulky to wear as a headband, so I don’t wear them during warm weather. I’m excited to see that they made a smaller size 🙂
    My whole family are buff-addicts. My husband LOVES his, and wears one pretty much every time he goes running.
