BibRave, Product Review, Run!

Get Your Boco On

Disclaimer: I received a Boco Gear 360º Visor to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

If you’ve been reading a while or following on Instagram, you may have noticed how attached I am to my hats.  That said, there are random times I don’t run with a hat even though I know I need one to keep the sun off my face.  Ok…truth moment- those “hatless” times aren’t so random.  Those are the days that I want to run but I also don’t want to wash my hair.   😜 Not gonna lie, I have my Slacker moments.

I’ve tried visors in the past but they’ve never survived my destructo girl tendencies.   I think I’ve purchased 4 or 5 throughout the years.  All various brands and the longest one lasted was about a month.  I just kept destroying them.   So I gave up.

hen I was offered a visor from Boco Gear.  Given my track record, I was skeptical but I thought, sure why not?   And it had the BibRave logo on it??? Bonus!

Boco Gear makes some pretty sweet hats and visors.  You could own one and not even know it- they make a wide variety of custom gear for other brands and teams.  Check your label- you may be surprised by what it says.

You guys, the visor is still alive!!!  It’s been 3 months and I haven’t hurt it yet!   It’s not like I’ve deliberately tried, but like I’ve said before I tend to toss things around in my car.  I throw EVERYTHING fabric in the washing machine at some point.  I shoved it into my carry on for Las Vegas and didn’t take time to pack it carefully- just shoved it in.  It goes in my gym bag to work on days I plan on wearing it.

Little bit of visor info-

  • Lightweight wicking materials outside
  • Wicking internal sweatband to move sweat from your forehead
  • Soft brushed elastic back for comfort and fit
  • Relaxed fit front panel for a better performance and comfort
  • Black underside of the bill to reduce glare
  • Curved bill
  • Machine washable

y only negative is something that I love about it as well, oops!  I love that it has the elastic back and there’s no Velcro closure.  However, while the elastic back it super comfortable and I never have to worry about the visor slipping off my oddly small head, it does fit rather snug.   For someone as easily prone to headaches as I am, it may be a little too snug.  I can only handle it for about 4-5 miles.  But that’s about as far as I can push it with the lack of hair washing anyway and not covering my ears so I guess it kind of works out!  😛

A visor that stands up to my bad habits?? Awesome!

  1. One of my favorite visors is made by Boco! LOVE the elastic, but like you, it can trigger a headache, but it is great for my summer runs! I wear a visor when it’s hot, a hat when it’s cool and pull out the beanie when it’s cold!! 😀
    Is the top strip reflective? I run in the dark and all my hats and visors have reflective strips on them to make sure I can be seen!
