Don't fight fair when it comes to bugs.

Use the bugs to get the fish to bite; don't let the bugs bite you. Throw on the UV Insect Shield Buff with Insect Shield built-in insect repellant and show them who's boss. Coolmax Extreme fabric wicks moisture, keeping you comfortable, even in sweltering heat. Polygiene Active Odor Control helps to keep the funk down on long trips, and built-in UV protection lets you stay out longer without getting blasted by the sun nearly as much.

Bought Another

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love buffs in general. These ones have insect shield, which is amazing. After a month in Puerto Rico and various hikes with friends, I walked away with little to no bites (unlike the rest of my group). It has also saved m camera from the rain on occasion. I have a classic as well and may buy a polar. These are such great things to have.

Great sun protection

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use it when i go out to sail and it has been more successful than most sunblocks in preventing sunburns on my face. It's also very light and cool and you can breathe through it with it over your mouth and nose no problem.

Love Buffs!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have several Buffs in my collection, and I'm happy to add this one to the rotation. I use them for cycling, hiking, gardening, and running - in the hot for sweat, and in the cold for warmth. Happy to have one with insect repellent for GA summers.

More useful than duct tape

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

One of the most useful items you can carry: use it to keep yourself cool, keep yourself warm, keep the sun off your neck, keep the bugs off your head, pre-filter your water, use as an emergency bandage, tame your mane once you get back to civilization, the list goes on..

Best Buff Brand

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I have a Columbia buff, a Patagonia buff, and now this Buff buff.

I have to say, the Buff brand takes the cake. Super comfy, stretchy, protective, and of course it repels bugs like it should.

Love this buff

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: adult

Just got back from a month in australia, this thing kept every critter there away from my neck and face. Even works on leeches! Best buff on the market!

Feels good and worked great on JMT

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Wears cool and comfortable. Kept me from sun burn and no mosquito bites, except in parts of my body where I didn't wear bug protection clothing


    This buff is great and works well for what I need it for! Have used it for skiing, or hiking in hot temps for protection. Breathable and light weight.
