Can't go wrong here!

Love this buff. It's been a staple on my head, neck, and face for a while now. Not to mention - I've given many of these as gifts over the year and converted some of my best friends from wearing big sun hats to these buffs over their faces for sun protection. Whether you are working on the farm or putting up first ascents this buff is clutch.

Perfect for long days on the river

    use this for long days on the river to avoid sun and wind burn.

    I can dig it

    Just bought my first buff. So far, so good. I use it skiing, primarily. It's just the right thickness to give me protection from the sun/ wind, without feeling bulky.

    A Year-Round Staple

    This piece is a classic and you can never have enough. Thin and breathable enough for summer days hiking and fishing, but warm enough for chilly ski days. Great purchase.


      love org buff, use the black often

      Can't have too many of these

      Perfect for those sunny days on the slopes or hiking or fishing or whatever. It doesn't hurt to have one of these in all your different bags. Comfortable and easy to wear. Covers your face as much as you want.

      An Amazing Item

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I purchased my buff mostly to replace on old fleece gaiter and have loved it. Its primary use has been to keep my neck and face warm, which it has fairly well at so far, but I would probably opt for the polar buff in colder climates or windier days. It wicks moisture amazingly, unlike the fleece one I used to have, which would get disgustingly damp and then freeze to my face. The classic buff is also not too warm to be unusable on mild and even lightly warm days, though I may consider a UV buff come summer, especially for travel to warmer regions.
      Overall, it is a simple, but extremely useful item. I would suggest owning at least one if only for is versatility.

      Can't go wrong with a Buff! I use mine for hiking, biking, and skiing


        Simple, well made, and comfy. I wear my buff every day on the ski hill and it always keeps me warm. It does have limitations as far as moisture goes if you are looking to wear it over your mouth, but other than that it is comfortable as can be and low key.

        Perfect for those that feel like they're being choked or can't breath with the other gaiter type of products. They make excellent gifts for snowboarders and bike riders.

        I always recommend that everyone have a UV buff for summer activities and polar buff for winter. However, the original buff does wonders in the shoulder seasons.


          I don't know what more needs to be said about this product, but it works great for so many activities, I use mine for everything!

          can never have too many

          Buffs are essential for skiing, that's probably why I have so many and continue to buy more. I like how the fabric is very light weight but still keeps me warm.

          my hero

          This magical thing can be used in so many ways for different seasons. I use it as a scarf in the winter time as well as something to cover my ears. I also use it as a head band during the warmer months. It can help spice up any outfit.


            Love these, have a bunch of them, use the lighter colors when it's warm.

            Goes with any outfit!

            I love these things!!

              As a dude with long hair this thing comes in handy all the time, year round, multi sport. I take it kayaking, I take it hiking, I wear it bouldering, it's literally great for anything anyway you want to wear it. They may be a little over priced at $20 but in the end it's worth every penny

              Buffs are the best neck gaiters

              • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
              • Fit: True to size

              I gave this one to my brother, but I have several of my own. He was wearing a different brand before I got him this one and he said this one felt better than his other one.


                I hadn't worn a facemask since my mom made me wear one in the 80s. It was itchy wool and would get pretty gross.
                I tried the new Buff-trend, and see it as just that. It is a super thin piece of fabric, with no hem. I imagine them making a huge tube of these, and just cutting every 18 inches. If I were to wear one, I'd get a SKIDA one, like my wife has.

                A beard is always better than a synthetic facemask! Haha. Hope you are having a good winter back East.
