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

Need some more goat goods!

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.

Buy It Today

  • 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.

Perfect for snowboarding.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used this bad boy a couple times and loved it. It breathes so you're not gasping for air underneath, and also doesn't fog your gogs. It kept the sun, and wind off my face all day while staying dry. I'll def be buying this again as a gift.

Perfect for snowboarding.

The epitome of fashion

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

You know when you see someone on the mountain wearing this gruff buff they're going to send it big, and you can send it big too! All it takes is some guts and this gruff buff...

Just don't forget to whack your pole on the cornice and yell "DROPPING!" loud enough so the gapers from the lift can see your rad moves!

Part of my everyday gear

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Can wear it on sunny days to block the rays, on windy days to block the frost bite, on cold days to keep from freezing... easy to wear, soft material, stretches to wear in a variety of ways. I don't head to the mountain without it. Plus it's folds small if you do want to stash it in your pocket.

The Gruff and the Furious

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Below is an older review of mine from a different buff. Although they have the backcountry.com stamp on it, they are the same pieces from the trusted Buff brand. One side note on this...if you live in Utah and hate having the same gear as other people, be weary of this one, I see it around the mountain a lot!

"These things make wearing "neck warmers" cool again. I ditched neck warmers back in grade school because A.) they always froze and thawed into a goopy dinosaur breath ridden mess of lukewarm fuzz and B.) they just weren't cool any more. Buffs are quite the opposite. Asides from being the "in" product these days, they're low profile and light weight - but the material is quality enough to keep the wind off my face without soaking through from constant breathing. This seemingly little detail is what makes or breaks such a product, and this one does the trick. As an added plus they come in tons of sweet designs whether your a park rat, a grand mother or a heady soul rider."

Standard buff

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

Pretty standard buff. Nothing crazy. Very versatile. Keeps you warm, keeps you cool. You can wear it about 20 different ways. Everyone can find a use for one of these. I gave a bunch as xmas gifts this year, went over great. People love stuff with a goat on them.

All Around Awesomeness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This buff is perfect for a variety of activites- skiing, hiking, fishing, climbing- anything really. I have been using mine for skiing and really like how lightweight and easy to breathe through it is. No claustrophobic feeling like some tight fitting buffs can give you and it keeps my face warm!

First Buff

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love my Buff. Its great to wear while skiing to keep your neck/face warm. Very breathable so you don't have a lack of oxygen while its over your face. So comfortable I usually forget to take it off in the car on the ride home from skiing.

A Must-Have

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I wear my Backcountry Buff every time I go skiing. My face gets cold easily and my problem with most face masks is the fact that you can't breathe through the material. This Buff is warm and thin.



Makes you catch bigger fish!
