Product Review: Hoo-rag bandana on a snowy 10 miler!

Recently the good folks over at Hoo-rag.com sent me one of their fitness bandanas to try out:

Today was the first opportunity I had to wear it on a run.  This bandana is a tubular shaped piece of polyester microfiber made to be worn in a variety of ways and for different functions.  You can wear it as a traditional head band, around the neck as a gaiter, over the head as a balaclava, or even turn it into a beanie. I wore mine like this:

When I got outside and realized how cold and windy it was, I came back in and grabbed my knit winter hat to put over the top.  The Hoo-rag worked perfectly to provide a sweat-wicking barrier between my head and my knit hat, and I loved that I could pull it down around my neck, ears and forehead.  The material is very soft and stretchy, but holds perfectly without slipping.  I think it would also be great for wearing under a ski or bike helmet or for hiking.  I think I'll try it out next at a spin class. :)  If you're looking for a great sport head band, give these Hoo-rags a try - they're awesome!

Now THIS is a December run in Idaho! :)

My run was also awesome, in a wintry, snowy, blustery sort of way. :)  It's been a while since I've had to brave the elements like that.  By the end of my run, the snow was starting to get packed on the road and it was pretty slippery.  Now we're headed to the gym with the kids to go swimming and use the hot tub, although I'll be spending a little time in the weight room first, doing my Saturday ab exercises.


  1. I'm sad that I missed running with you today, but I'm not sad that I missed out on the weather. I ran in shorts and a t-shirt yesterday!!! It's beautiful here in Las Vegas.

  2. That's so cute AND it looks functional! I always like wearing a headband under my hats or my ears get cold. I might check these out!

    1. Yes, do! You would like these. They're so soft and comfortable!

  3. I am hoping for some snow here in Ohio soon so that I can go out and do my first snow run. Winter has always been the time I have gone into gym hibernation, but not this year. I need my outdoor runs, and snow sounds like a fun challenge! Way to go out there and get it done!
