Review: Hoo-rag

A little over a month ago, I received the opportunity to test out a Hoo-rag.  What the heck is a Hoo-rag you might ask?  Good thing I’m here to tell you, huh?  Well, it is a seamless cotton-polyester blended micro-fiber, light weight, moisture wicking bandana.  Although, I think it is much cooler than your average bandana.

Hoo-rag Neck Gaiter!

The great thing about the Hoo-rag is that you can literally wear it any way you want… facemask, ponytail holder, gaiter, head band, beanie — you name it!  Personally, as the weather got pretty chilly in December and January, I used the Hoo-rag primarily as a neck gaiter and balaclava.  It worked like a charm.  And for those days when I warmed up a bit, it was very easy to take off and wrap around my wrist.  Don’t tell anyone, but once I heated up, I ended up using it as a snot rag on more than one occasion.  Talk about versatile!

The Hoo-rag might have served as a snot rag at this point!  

So with that being said, I think that the Hoo-rag is something that everyone can wear.  Perfect for bicyclists that want a little something between their hair and their helmets, runners in need a neck gaiter or lightweight balaclava, or for every day use out in the elements.

At first I thought it was not going to be useful but I could not have been more wrong.  Honestly, you can probably pick any sport/activity and find a use for it.  It quickly became a part of my must have outdoor gear.

Have you ever heard of or used a Hoo-rag?  What’s your favorite new item out there?

Note:  I received the Hoo-rag free of charge in exchange for a product review.  All opinions are my own and I was not required to give a positive review of the item.


  1. As soon as I saw it on your wrist my first thought was "best snot rag ever" and then it was 🙂
