Product Review: BUFF® Thermonet Hat & BUFF®

The BUFF® Arrowhead ThermoNet Hat (R) and BUFF® (L) are lightweight but plenty warm for late Fall running.

Disclaimer: I received a BUFF® Arrowhead ThermoNet Hat and BUFF® 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.

The hat fits snug which keeps you warmer.
Just in time for late Fall and Winter, BUFF® strikes again with their ThermoNet line of products that are perfect for the time of the year we are in now...late Fall and early winter.  I got to try out to well designed pieces of gear this time, a hat and a BUFF®.  Both are lightweight, with 70% recycled material that is fast drying and made of soft Primaloft yarn.

When I first received them this Fall, we were still going through some warm days, so the first thing I noticed was that these are too much on a warm day in the 50's and higher.

But this weekend, as I raced a 10K on the trails in the 40's, my ThermoNet Hat was perfect.  Nice and snug, warm, lightweight, and sporty!!! 

Getting ready to change my shoes and pull off the pullover as I prepare to run the Mendon Trail Race in my BUFF® Hat.

The information of the ThermoNet line is that it is 4X warmer than Microfiber.  I would guess part of that is that the Primaloft yarn seems to me a tighter weave such that less cold air is getting in even while the BUFF® or hat is managing the sweat moisture against your head or neck.  The other part is that while wicking away the moisture, the fabric traps the heat inside to keep you warm.  Keep the cold air out, keep the hot air in, minus the moisture. Sounds like a plan to me.  The weather condition rating for these is cool on a scale of cold-cool-warm-hot.  Personally, I would probably wear these in conditions 45F or less.

Right now if you go to www.buffusa.com you can save 20% off your entire order when you purchase at least 1 ThermoNet product and use code BIBRAVETHERMONET20.  This code expires 11/21/17.
