There are more than a dozen ways to wear a Buff. Backcountry.com teamed up with Buff to create the Gruff Buff, a Buff with a unique goat pattern so you can show your love for the herd while you protect your head, neck, or face from the cold, the wind, or the sun. This could be the most versatile, technical headwear you own.

  • Microfiber polyester material feels soft and smooth against your skin, it dries quickly, and features a light stretch
  • Polygiene treatment helps the body material repel the bacteria that causes funky odors
  • Tubular, seamless design eliminates bulges or seams that could cause chafing
  • One-size-fits-all sizing fits ... all

Works great and has goats on it!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • 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.

Versatility

Probably one of the simplest pieces of gear I own, but also one of my favorites! As the reviews say, you could probably use this thing in a thousand different ways/situations. Even with a beard, the microfiber polyester fabric is holding up great!

Hey Brandon,

Since we don't have our own production facilities here at Backcountry.com we have to really rely on other manufactures to slap some goats on gear for us. This typically means we have to stay very niche with the season and we probably wont get anymore until just before next winter.

Not what I thought, but it works

I thought this would be a lot thicker material but I guess I am used to the old school fleece gators. I am not super stoked on this buff but it gets the job done.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

We now own 2 different versions of this product (2 Backcountry and 2 buff sleeves) and use them just about everyday! I use them in the winter on a daily bases and use the white Buff sleeve in the summer to protect my neck from the sun as I work on a research vessel all summer in the Great Lakes. They are super handy and we seem to find new ways of using them all the time.

So many options

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love the Backcountry Gruff Buff. So far I have just used it for the Winter but it has been great. Use it to cover your ears, neck, head, or anything else exposed to the wind. It's very light and can pack anywhere. Also it fits very easily under a helmet.

Good options

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

You can wear this year round for any style. Easy to pack with you for anything, even street wear if it is dipping into those single digits. Light enough that it breathes and doesn't freeze, and for that, on the blower days I will layer this with another neck gator.

versatility

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I carry this buff with me every time I go skiing. It's lightweight and folds up into a small pocket. Whenever I need it, it's there. Fits great under a helmet to keep your dome warm, and keeps your face warmer when the wind picks up. If the temps really drop I'll switch to something more windproof, but this works great for 90% of the time I'm in the mountains. It's cheap, and you will always be stoked when you realize you have it tucked into your pocket.
