Amazing & Functional

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this before a trip to Havasupai in June. Hot time to go, and the hike can leave you exposed to the sun for extended periods of time. This thing made a huge difference on my hike out when we were in that sun. I had it covering my neck up to my nose, covering almost all of it from the sun. This thing now is always in my truck for any time I may be out hiking.

It also is a hell of an awesome print!

    You can use these in hot and cold conditions and save your face from nasty UV rays. You can never have to much protection! Save your face!

    These things are unexpectedly amazing

    dampened with water and it cooled me down on hot days. wore it around my neck to avoid sunburn. easy to wash and dry on the road. a killer headband.

    Only caveat: a wee bit too snug if you have a large head, like me.

    I have more of these than I can count. Different colors, different patterns, etc..... As you can guess, I'm worried about sunburn, windburn, fine lines and wrinkling, brown spots, etc..... I want to keep my skin looking young for as long as possible and the sun is definitely working against me especially at the high altitude in Telluride so I use the Buff UV.



    I bring one on pretty much every outdoor activity (other than beach and water sports) in every season. No problems washing them a lot although I choose to hang dry for an extra long life.



    Between my ski goggles, helmet and Buff, I have to admit that sometimes I look like a bandit but the pretty prints and colors offset the "bandit" effect. And sometimes it's not bad to be incognito....

    The embarrassing fact is that I own well over 20 buff headbands. I absolutely can't live without them. I can put them into everyday use, and they always wash well. There are a multitude of ways to wear them. My two favorite ways are 1. As a headband , scrunched or folded up. And 2. As a scarf lying loosely on the neck. With so many different prints available, they can suit many personalities or color preferences. Wear them to hike, bike, walk, yoga, gym, or on a lazy day. Every time I wear one, someone will ask, what is that cool headband in your hair? Or where is that scarf from? It's the most versatile item that I own. Period

    What are these not good for? Alpine climbing? Check. Ultra-running? Check. Skitouring? Check. Beating about town to keep warm? Check.



    I always make sure to wrap-up before going out to play and the Buff makes that easy - and good looking.

    The buff works everywhere, even at Mount Leconte, 6593 feet in the Smokies. Especially there.

    Great product.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Used as a neck gaiter and for mosquito protection while fishing in Alaska. Not sure how it will hold up to repeated uses/washes, but great so far.

    not for me

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    Maybe I got a defective product, but the ends of the buff were not seamed. If I was to put this in the washing machine it would get torn up. It was already falling apart when i was just simply touching the ends. I already had the headband UV buff, which I love, but this one, not loving. Returned.

    Seems you did get a lemon! Sorry about that! Always let us know once you receive your gear and if any defective issues, hit us up so we can get a switch set up for a new one.

    Good extra piece of sun protection. Nice to soak in water to keep you cool, too.

    Breathe Easy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I got this buff mainly for warmer winter days and spring riding. I would not suggest it for colder winter days. When wearing it over the majority of your face, it is super easy to breathe and talk. Plus, people can actually understand you. The length on these are 20 inches long

    always with me for adventures

      I take my buff along for any outdoor trip. It is great year round. Blocks wind, keeps the head warm in the winter. Dip it in water to cool off in the summer. Definitely a great addition to your pack.

      Give your brain some shade!

        No matter the season there is a use for my UV Buff.

        Hot Times:

        + I mainly sport it dew rag style (pirate) for hiking, discing and running.

        + Absorbs sweat like a champ.

        + Even though mine is printed black it keeps my head cool. I've got very short hair and that sun can be murder!

        Cold Times:

        + Worn it as a neck gaiter or light ninja mask.

        + Worn as a beanie on it's own or because it's so low profile fit it under my bike helmet for winter riding!



        UV Buff is nice in the winter, but an absolute MUST in the summer! Fold it down and stash it with even if you don't think you'll need it.

        I like it, did the job and looked good doing it. Solid addition to the arsenal. Definitely would not wear in the 20's or lower. 42 today at the bird and I got to go sunscreen free in comfort. I call that a win.
