My Orange Mud Transition Wrap is Royal Blue
Huh? Don't worry about the colors — worry about getting one of these super soft Orange Mud transition wraps for your favorite runner or Triathlete. Yes, you can be your own favorite runner. Yes, there's a discount code at the end of this post!

I'm so happy that as a BibRave Pro I received an OM transition wrap to test and review. Orange Mud makes the transition wrap in 9 colors, plus a woodland camo print. I love blue, so I went with that. But, I can see getting different colors for each member of the family or matching it to a car interior.
The transition wrap is made of microfiber. I love how soft and absorbent it is. It's perfect for changing clothes in public or putting a barrier between you and your car upholstery after a workout.
I've used it after runs and races when I'm a sweaty mess. The thing is — it feels like it wicks the sweat away from me. I never feel like I'm sitting in sweat like I do with a regular towel. It makes the ride home from a race more comfortable.
To use the wrap as a seat cover, zip the zipper. This creates a hood you slip over the headrest on your car seat. The wrap stays in place while you drive.
I'm finding I use this wrap around the house, too. Sometimes, I want to relax for a minute, or send a quick email after a run. I grab my Orange Mud wrap and use it on my porch or desk chair. I call this solving Runner Problem #43.

Compact, Portable, Plush and Useful
I've had my OM transition towel for about a month. I've washed it after every use (4-5 times) and it holds its color. This is great gear for runners, walkers, swimmers, and beachgoers.
Below are more photos to give you a better view of how the wrap works.
Use It After Yoga, CrossFit, Running, Swimming, Biking or a Day at the Beach
Put the towel on your car seat to prevent sweaty smells on your car upholstery. Wrap it around your chest or waist to change from sweaty clothes to dry ones. Take it to the beach and use it after a swim or for quick changes. Fold it into a rectangle and use it as a pillow! This thing is super soft! (Photo credit: Orange Mud)

Ways to Wear a Buff® CoolNet UV Multifunction Headband
We all know I stink at taking selfies, but I tried my best so you can see some options. BTW, I wear my headband for both running and casual wear.
I like to wear my Buff® around my neck (as an ice necklace when it's hot). It keeps the sun off my neck and easily converts to a headband if needed. (Video: ThisOldRunner)
Buff Puts the Fun Back in Multi-Functional
Buff® headbands and headwear come in plenty of colors and patterns. You can find options to match all your running gear. Choose the headband like I did, or get the longer CoolNet UV Multifunctional Headwear. Look below for more ways to wear a Buff®.

Knockaround Sunglasses in Teal Geode
Teal Geode with Smoke Lenses. That's the name of the sunglasses I'm testing for Knockaround. OMG, I love the name. Teal Geode is a great color, and it reminds me of a dear old friend who collected geodes. So there's that. But, there's more.

These shades are lightweight and stay on my face. That's really important when I'm running. There's not much worse than glasses that slide off your face.
The Fast Lanes worked for running and walking around town. Doing yard work. Reading a book outside. Or driving here, there, and everywhere.
They're just right for people like me who wear sunglasses every single day. And, if I was the kind of person who needed lots of different pairs of glasses, in lots of different frame and lens combos, Knockaround could deliver. In budget.
The Fast Lanes start at $20. At that price, if I'm on a boat and lose them overboard I'd be very sad, but not devastated. I could easily afford to replace them.
Fun and Affordable Glasses Made in San Diego
Knockaround as a company has a fun, friendly vibe. They're very sociable and responsive to questions.
Check out their Instagram account. If your pup wears Knockaround shades use the hashtag #KnocksOnDogs and let them know. Follow the hashtag for a regular dose of cute dogs! Here's an example from their website:

My View of Knockaround Sunglasses
I really (really!) like the Fast Lanes. The larger lenses are good for protecting my eyes from the sun, and from flying debris when I work in the yard.
I like the color and lens options, and the price point. I'm really happy I was able to test them. I'm even happier that I get to keep wearing them.
I don't know if Fast Lanes make me look fast. But, I do feel fast running in them!
