More often than not, when I’m working out, I’m wearing a hat or visor.
Hats are my current go-to purchase at race expos and I’m always looking for the perfect one. What makes a hat “perfect”? In my eyes, it’s something that’s breathable, lightweight, and easy to throw in my bag or on a fuel belt.
Enter BUFF® Pack Run Cap!
What makes this cap so great? So glad you asked! There’s a couple of reasons why it ranks high on my list.
Number 1 – Lightweight and breathable: I can check these off the list first! This hat is super light, in fact, it doesn’t even feel like it’s on your head because it weighs a single ounce. Uno. One.
The side panels are a mesh-like material; BUFF® calls it fastwick, which is something you can find with many of their products. What does that mean? Well, when I’m working out, the material is moisture wicking and keeps me cool! I’ve tried other caps that have held in the heat which does NOT feel nice when you’re working up a sweat, but this is cool and airy.
Number 2 – It’s bright! In addition to the great colors, there are a couple of reflective areas on the cap! The BUFF® logo on the front and strip on back add to visibility in the early morning/evening hours.
Number 3 – You can pack it! I mean, really pack it! Fold the sides of the brim in, roll it toward the back of the cap, and wrap the adjustable slide around. Easy as pie!
Number 4 – It’s washable! Hand-wash or machine. I rarely hand-wash anything, so I was happy to see that I could toss it into the machine. After washing it three times it maintains its shape and vibrancy! I let it air-dry on a rack and because it’s so lightweight, it dries quickly so that’s it’s ready for my next workout.
Number 5 – It has matching arm sleeves! I don’t have these… yet. Is it too early to start my Christmas list?

Nice review. It definitely is not too early to start your Christmas list. I purchased two Christmas gifts yesterday. You look awesome in that cap as well!
Thanks so much, Jean! I think I need to start my back to school shopping before I go for the Christmas lists. 😉

Looks like a great hat! I don’t wear a ton of hats while running, but this would be a good starter hat.
I’m a more recent hat while working out type of person – I can’t wear sunnies while I’m running because I have regular glasses and I love hats because they keep the sun (or rain) out of my eyes. And also, it covers my crazy hair! HA! I agree, this would be a great starter hat!

This would be great for working in the garden too! Need something breathable for those hot days!
YES! It’s fantastic because it doesn’t keep that hot heat close to your head. It would be a perfect gardening cap!
