Hood Rat – Buff USA Thermal Hoodie Review

Disclaimer: I received a Buff Thermal Hoodie 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!”

Well it’s been a whirlwind getting back to normal life after all the fun at WDW Marathon Weekend! Phew, Dopey really took it out of me but those race recaps will be going up next week!

In the meantime, it’s time for another review!

So I’m a MAJOR sissy when it comes to being cold. When I was in Florida for the race weekend the thought did cross my mind that maybe it’s time to move back. Me and freezing temps do not do well together so I’m always on the look out for great products I can layer easily while running, hiking, or just everday. Layers are KEY and this product takes layering to a new level!

Meet the Buff Thermal Hoodie!


This is part merino wool Buff and part super soft and cozy hoodie (or as they call it “Polartec® Thermal Pro® hood”) and it’s PERFECT to layer with anything because you don’t have to wear a big bulky sweatshirt to go with it!

This has quickly become a staple in my day-to-day commuting routine since I have to walk several blocks from the bus to the office. It’s perfect to roll up and put in a pocket or backpack and if it’s gets a little too chilly, throw it on and then you can have double hood protection. It’s like carrying/wearing a pair of mittens for your head!

You also totally feel like a ninja when you wear it 🙂

So if you are looking for a winter accessory that is:

  1. Warm and wicking
  2. Lightweight
  3. Easy to layer
  4. Easy to carry

Then you need to pick up one of these bad boys. It will change the way you keep warm during the winter months!
