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!
