Excellent

Works exactly as you would expect and want it too. I use them under my helmet to ride all the time.

Bought a Buff on a whim...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought a Buff because I had seem them before and was curious. The goat pattern with gray and black didn't hurt either, so I went for it. Over the past couple of months I have been able to use it in a dry, dusty desert environment, in a hot slot canyon, and atop a windy, cold peak under full snow conditions. It's performance has surprised me and I'm finding that I appreciate having this simple resource at my disposition. It really does fill any multi-tasking role you give it. It can hep to keep you cool, or warm, or help keep sweat at bay. My girls love that it also tames their long manes. I'm finding that this small additional to my outdoor kit is more and more vital. I ended up buying one for each member of the whole family (for Christmas) just so I wouldn't have to share.

I'd have given it a full five stars if the printed pattern was aligned at both edges. As it is, it looks a little funny, but that doesn't affect function in anyway, just aesthetics.

Not sure how to go outdoors anymore without one of these....

Backcountry.com should restock these as the logo version is kind of cool and distinctive.

Amazing Buff

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The one thing that stands this buff out from the others is the fact that you can stretch it horizontally but not vertically. Very versatile, comfortable, breathable - but will keep you warm if needed.

Love the Goat

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

This is the first buff I bought. It is great. The material is comfortable. Buffs in general are very versatile and this multi use item lets me use one piece of gear instead of several. Also, it has the awesome goat on it. What isn't there to love about it?

Works great and has goats on it!

  • Fit: True to size

This buff came on my trip to Iceland and did a great job of keeping my neck warm while dog sledding on a glacier. Afterwards, it kept my sweaty hair away from my face while we posed for pictures.
I got lots of compliments on it because of the goats, too.
You can see it protecting me from a vicious troll.

Rock the Goat

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love my buff! Now that I live in sunny Utah some kind of lightweight sun protection seemed like a good idea. I had no idea I would wear this buff just about everywhere since I bought it. Not only does it keep my pale skin from scorching, it is my go to messy hair day cover. I will never go camping without it.

Buffs are good.

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

Goat Buffs are better. Buffs are great for any time of year whether you're hiking and want to keep the sun off your head or in winter to keep the cold at bay. This may potentially not be enough on a really cold day if your face gets cold as the fabric is quite thin but if you stick it out your face goes numb anyway. Yay frostbite. But seriously, if its really cold might want to get one of the winter buffs or just fold this one in two and get two layers. Sizing wise.... It'll fit you.

Buffed

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

A very simple and useful piece of clothing/gear. The backcountry buff can provide a little coverage or a lot on your head or neck depending on temperature and conditions. I typically start with it on my head and then once warmed up just wrap it around my wrist until I need coverage again. I have found for us ladies it also is a comfy option as a tube top after a long run.

As for thickness the Backcountry.com buff is thin, but doubled up is warm. I would like to see them make a winter/cold weather version as well with a layer of fleece.
