Eight Wearable Styles, One Rag: Hoo-rag *Review*

I'm not sure many of you know this about me, but back in the day before a lot of my health issues struck I was very much into being outdoors, especially doing things revolving around hunting and fishing.

My mom and dad only had two girls (my sister and I), so I suppose my father just made due with what he was given and turned us into his 'makeshift' sons. LOL

We loved hunting and fishing in any season whether it be warm or cold, but the best hunting is usually in the Winter. The biggest thing to remember when going hunting in below degree weather is make sure to be covered up completely!

Especially your face; if that's not covered up or at least safe from the wind, you won't be out for long.

Boy oh boy, do I wish I would have known about the Hoo-rag back then!

Regardless of whether your male or female, love fashion or have no sense of style, or have a head of hair or are as bald as a cue ball, the Hoo-rag is an invention from some pretty darn creative minds that is made to fit all! 

With several different ways to wear a single rag, this innovative, stylish and practical accessory comes in numerous different colors and patterns, so there really IS something for everybody.  

When first contacted, I was pretty curious at what the heck a Hoo-rag was!

Getting to do a review was the best way to get a better handle on the product's potential, so I was quite anxious for it to arrive.

On their website you can choose from a TON of different colors, graphics and styles, so I was pleasantly surprised when I opened up the package and fell head-over-heels for the style they sent me, appropriately named Groovy-Hoo

After watching the how-to video on the website, I was thoroughly impressed by the variety of different ways you can wear your Hoo-rag, so I had a quite a bit of fun trying to awkwardly configure figuring them out and doing a little modeling.

Here's what I came up with and please excuse the red face; my room has two outside walls and it's always freezing in there...

The product itself is made of a very lightweight and moveable material so it forms to fit and isn't uncomfortable. That being said, if you're a hunter or you want to wear this out during colder weather to stay warm, this breathable, lightweight material will keep your face toasty! I know this because spending time trying to configure the balaclava and face rag style, I ended up getting pretty darn warm by the time I figured them out.

My personal favorite style to wear my Hoo-rag is the beanie; it's so neat once you figure out how to transform your seemingly flat, tubular rag into a hat! Then again, simple things amuse me ;)

Second favorite would have to be the headband, a.k.a the Alice rag, because I'm always trying to keep my hair back from my face, so that is being put to good use!

If you'd like to see more styles I didn't happen to cover or read descriptions on the styles I did, you can do so HERE.

The only issue I could see after playing with this for a little while was the edges became a little frayed, which has me a wee bit worried about future wear and tear. However there wasn't TOO much fraying, so I'm not entirely sure if it was wear and tear or if it was just breaking in.

Way cool! I love the beanie configuration too, I bet it doesn't itch like most hats do since the material is so breathable.
