We are all to familiar with the products offered by Buff®. Many of their products are multifaceted and can be worn various ways. If you aren’t familiar I️ would highly recommend acclimating yourself very quickly. So when the opportunity presented itself to try the new Buff® ThermoNet™ Hat and ThermoNet™ Multifunctional Headwear, I️ couldn’t say no.
So let’s dive in and find out the technology behind the newly released ThermoNet™ from the Buff® website:
- Featuring PrimaLoft® yarn
- High-thermal insulation: mimics the warmth of down
- 4 times warmer than microfiber
- High warmth-to-weight ratio means you don’t need bulk to stay warm
- Moisture management
The Buff® ThermoNet™ is built on the preface of regulating body temperature while keeping you comfortable and dry. Moisture wicking is key in those frigid temperatures which is a key aspect of the design and pulls moister away from your skin.
Finally the day had arrived and my new gear was in hand. Unfortunately summer decided to stick around longer than normal and temperatures were a tad bit balmy for late September. My first thought was how differently the ThermoNet™ felt compared to my other Buff® items. Still very light, durable and stylish looking, though. I chose the Arrowhead color style for both products and was impressed with the look. See the various other styles here. Warm weather or not I wasn’t going to let it keep me from getting out and testing the new Primaloft® technology. My first run was calling for 60 degree temperatures. As you can see from the above picture the term moisture wicking is very evident here. Yes my bald dome sweats, but to my surprise the moisture was wicked off leaving my head relatively dry without that feeling of being over-heated.
Since then the temperatures have dropped into the upper 30’s with wind, so both the Buff® ThermoNet™ Hat and Multifunctional Headwear have been in play. Talk about a game changer for warmth, where other exposed areas were downright cold.
Overall I have been very impressed with the Primasoft® technology the last month. The claim to be 4x warmer is definitely a true statement and I cannot wait for those below zero digits to arrive. Both pieces will be staples on my winter runs. The Multifunctional Headwear still offers the 13 different ways to wear making it once again the most versatile product on the market. I️ mean what other product allows you to disguise yourself like this?!?!
The price point for both are only $27, which in my opinion is fair for the technology you are receiving. Better yet you can get 20% off your entire order if you purchase at least one ThermoNet™ product by using BIBRAVETHERMONET20! But hurry the offer expires on 11/21/17.
