Going out in the Buff

Advantages: Lightweight,breathable and comfortable to wear
I've always loved the Buff tubes since I was given one as a present years ago for wearing as
a neck warmer on the bike in winter. After having problems with my previous neck warmers
being too bulky,causing me rashes on my neck when they got wet or the seams rubbing and
irritating my skin using the thin seam free Buff made a huge difference and I've never been
without one since.
The Buff is a long seam free tube of thin stretchy polyester microfibre material which is breathable
and wicks moisture away from the skin. The Buff material is designed to keep you warm in winter
and cool in summer so it's perfect for wearing on a bike to keep the sun off your neck in summer
and sealing the gap between your jacket and helmet in winter to keep you warm without
restricting your movement.
The Buff can be worn in many ways including a neck warmer, balaclava, face mask, bandana,
hairband or wristband and most outdoor shops seem to have either a display poster or a TV
screen showing you the many ways these can be worn. For me personally my Buffs are usually
used as a neck warmer/sun protection for the bike, snowboarding or cycling and often in winter
pulled up over my lower face for extra warmth on the bikes or ski slopes on really cold days.
I also find the Buff is perfect wearing bandana style under my cycling helmet as it's so thin it
can provide extra warmth without bulk.
I also find the buffs are handy for keeping my long hair out of the way when doing messy stuff
like painting ceilings or plastering walls etc. Although I wouldn't wear the buff in head scarf
style outside it's great for keeping my hair paint and plaster free so I've kept one of my old
buffs especially for those rare moments when I give in to the need to decorate.
Buffs can be washed in the washing machine and due to the material being so light are quick
to dry. The fabric lasts well and I've never had any problems with it fraying or loosing stretch
or falling apart. My oldest Buff is around 5 years old and although it's now a bit faded and
very slightly bobbly on the outer side it is still usable and still comfortable to wear.
Buffs are available in a huge choice of different colours and patterns so there's something to
suit everyone. The Buffs come in 3 different sizes to fit babies, kids and adults and there's
even a dog version available if your pooch is feeling the cold. Lately Buff have also brought
out several different variations of the original including reflective, UV protection ,hoody,
peaked,storm and polar buffs althouhg I've only ever owned the Polar Buff and the original
ones I still prefer the originals.
Buffs are availabe from most sports and outdoor shops and cost between £6 and £13
depending on where you shop.
