I wear buffs almost every time I run, and have amassed quite the collection. The Tailwind buff is by far my favorite. It feels a little more cottony (its not cotton) than most of my other buffs (more silky?) which is why it is my favorite. This buff will truly wick away sweat, not just smear it across your forehead, and it dries very quickly. Occasionally I wear it around my head as a headband of sorts, and it doesn't slip off at all. More commonly I keep it around my neck, the stretchy material makes it easy to pull up and wipe my sweaty, dirt covered face. Speaking of dirt, this thing has been through the ringer with me out on the trails over the last few weeks and still looks brand new. It is worthy of 5 stars for sure.
