Review: Buff DryFly Neckwarmer and Hat

Disclaimer: I received a Buff DryFly Neckwarmer and Hat to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews.

I have used Buff products before, in fact I have at least one clean original in my running bag at all times. Usually, I use an original Buff for the purpose of pulling my hair back, covering my face on windy beach days, keeping my face/ears warm on those crazy winter days and even as a bracelet to wipe sweat off my face.

But when the opportunity to test the Buff DryFly Neckwarmer and Hat presented itself, I had to join in on the fun. The weather has recently started to get cool (30*) so I have finally had the opportunity to wear my new Buff DryFly Neckwarmer and Hat. Truth be told, now that I have been wearing them, I now know that I did not need to wait for it to get cold. Both the hat and neckwarmer are very light weight but provide sufficient warmth without overheating. 

Once nice surprise is the reflective design, which is great for dusk to dawn activity. The DryFly fabric is breathable and quick-drying (I hung it up wet, after a five mile run, and it was dry by the time I got out of the shower).

At the beginning of my runs, I am usually cold, but three miles in, I end up getting warm. The hat kept my head warm and the neckwarmer was perfect to pull down and away from my face/ears. I am looking forward to more early morning, cold runs with Buff!

Once concern I do have: I think my oldest has been eyeing the hat and I might find it under his snowboard helmet, by the end of the week. 

What about you? Have you tried any of the Buff DryFly products? What are your thoughts?
