Buff running hats: your new look for summer 2020

Check out the latest hats from Buff to keep you protected from the sun during your training this summer

Summer’s finally here, and with the warm temperatures, you’ll likely be getting out for more and more runs. It’s important to dress appropriately for the weather, and from June to August, that means preparing for some hot and sunny days. One of the best ways to protect yourself from the sun is to simply wear a hat. Here are some of the newest hats from Buff that you should consider adding to your summer running outfit. They’ll protect you from the sun and ultraviolet rays, and as a bonus, they look pretty cool, too.

Pro Run Cap

The Pro Run Cap is a highly featured piece for anyone putting in the miles this season. You’re protected from rain by the moisture management treatment of the fabric. The UPF 50+ treatment offers protection from ultraviolet rays. Reflective panels increase your visibility in low light. Side mesh panels make this a more breathable piece of head gear. Tired of struggling to keep your sunglasses secure when you take them off on a long run? The pro Run Cap has two different ways to keep them in place. The hook-and-loop strap allows you to customize the fit. This stylish, versatile cap will get you through the coming season comfortably, no matter what the conditions.

Run Cap

The Run Cap is the Buff offering for runners looking for a good-looking all-around running hat this summer.  The reflective front panel and logo makes you easier to see in low-light conditions. The stretch band at the back ensures a snug fit. Just like the Pro Run Cap, the Run Cap has mesh side panels to keep you cool, and UPF 50+ for extra protection from the sun. The Run Cap’s classic runner’s profile will keep you looking good this summer, on the trails or on the road.


Reflective Visor

Some runners prefer a visor over a hat for increased breathability and lightness. There’s a bunch of reasons why the Reflective Visor is one of the most popular items from Buff. The broad mesh sweatband keeps sweat out of your eyes.  A hook-and-loop strap allows you to customize the fit. And a reflective logo on the headband and a reflective panel on the back-strap increase your visibility on low-light runs.
