What is a Neck Gaiter?

A neck gaiter is simple piece of synthetic material that is sewn into a tube. Many people refer to them generically as a Buff.  Neck gaiters are one of the most versatile and useful pieces of running equipment you can own.

First off, neck gaiters cost a little less than a beanie would cost and can be used exactly like a beanie plus about 10 other ways.  One of the main reasons runners love neck gaiters is because they are extremely portable.  When you are not wearing a buff you can very easily wrap it around your wrist and it then becomes something to wipe your brow with as you warm up.

Neck Gaiters are useful in both warm and cold temperatures unlike a beanie.  They can also be worn during other sports. They are great to wear under helmets when skiing or cycling. Check our review/preview of the neck gaiter.

Small Business Saturday Sale


Being a family-owned local small business we are huge supporters of the Small Business Saturday Concept. We have decided to put on a huge sale in celebration of shopping local. We will be marking down select shoes and apparel 50%-80% off for the holiday weekend only. On top of that we are offering a $10 gift card for every $100 purchase on Friday and Saturday only.

So after you wobble before you gobble, or trot before the turkey feast make plans to stop by your locally owned running specialty store this weekend to pick up the gear you need to get you through the holiday season. With the holidays, family, and other activities Winter is often a time when running can fall to the wayside, but it doesn’t have to. Running is actually really fun in the winter as long as you have the proper gear. Some people may think you are crazy to get out in the blustery conditions but here at the Reno Running Company we call that dedication.

Happy Holidays from the Reno Running Company!
