Versatile - Wind X-treme Review

A few months back, I was sent the Wind X-treme.   When it came I was so excited to try it out, but it was so cold outside and the fabric was incredibly lightweight.  I thought for sure that it would not be warm enough for the Maine winters.  Then one chilly morning, my thicker hat was in the washing machine, so I pulled out the Wind X-treme.




After a 10F day run, I was quite pleased with how warm my head was during the run. After that run I was sold.  I also loved the fun print.  It is different from most of my winter running hats (boring black) and it looked great with my fun Sugoi running jacket.  The Wind X-treme became my go-to running hat in no time at all.  


Wind X-treme is a lightweight yet heavy-duty headwear designed for outdoor activities such as (but definitely not limited to):

  • skiing
  • hunting
  • snowboarding
  • snowmobiling
  • biking
  • motorcycling
  • running
  • golfing
  • fishing
  • hiking
  • climbing
  • tennis
The above list is from the website, but after wearing the Wind X-treme for sometime, I'm going to add more activities:
  • yoga
  • gardening
  • cleaning
I am positive after trying out Wind X-treme for yourself, you could add even more activities to the list.  

Because Wind X-treme is such a versatile accessory, it is great for all seasons and has many functions.  I enjoyed using the Wind X-treme in the following forms:


skull cap (my favorite winter mode)


neck gaitor (sorry no, picture for this one)


headband 


nice for when it warms up and keeps the sweat out of your eyes
I see myself wearing it more and more as a headband as the temps continue to rise this spring.

But the list of functions doesn't end there - you can also enjoy it as:
  • facemask
  • helment liner
  • balaclava 
  • pirate cap
  • sahariane
  • scrunchy
  • wristband
  • and I'm sure you could add more functions here.....
I loved that the back of the package included a visual of ideas of it's uses and even some directions for the bottom two uses.  Most importantly, if you choose to try out the Wind X-treme, it's best to just play around with it.  





Wind X-treme is also great for all members of the family.  It is definitely Izzy approved.  I've had to retrieve it from her bedroom many of times.




You should definitely visit Wind X-treme for more information about this incredible product.
Visit them on their website here and on facebook here.  Let them know Jen from Running With The Girls sent you over.

  2. I looked at the web site and they show different product categories ("Wind", "Cool Wind", "Polar Wind", "Peak Wind", etc). Do you know which one yours is? Looks interesting and at $25±, seems pretty in line with other less multi-functional products.

  4. I love it! I got something similar to that I keep meaning to review it, it has a fleece end and an end with material similar to yours. I took it for a test run recently and loved it. I love that it is so versatile.

  5. I can't think of the name, but it reminds me of another product. However as the commenter above said that one is much thicker. I think I'll try looking for this one to use in the summer/spring/fall when you catch a random chill or wind

    1. I've never seen a Survivor buff. I will have to check it out.

    2. The Surviror Buff is more of a promotional item. This is a higher end product than what you are thinkin.
