These seamless polyester head-wraps have long been ubiquitous uniform pieces for racers. Despite a questionable do-rag aesthetic, Buffs are irreplaceable on a race for soaking up sweat from your brow, protecting your neck from sun, and insulating your noggin at night. I bring at least two Buffs on every race, and switch out a sweaty or rain-soaked Buff for the dry replacement I always keep inside my pack.

Price: $18
