    The origin of versatility.

    The Buff Original National Geographic Buff is about as classic as peanut butter and banana on toast—or avocado if you're getting fancy. This buff features an exotic and fascinating print, while the seamless construction not only prevents chafing, but also wicks away moisture and dries quickly. A Polygiene Active Control treatment keeps post-hike funks at bay, and the buff can be worn twelve different ways—so you get the most bang for your buck, meaning you can buy more peanut butter or avocado.

    • A multi functional tube for aerobic activities
    • Seamless construction prevents chafing
    • Fabric wicks away moisture and dries quickly
    • Polygiene Active Odor Control keeps funks at bay

    Fantastic product!

    • Fit: True to size

    I really love buffs. They work good all year round. I ordered this one to replace my first buff I lost on a camping trip. I really adore the Temple design, it looks really cool. And it keeps my hair out of the away, keeping me cool on summer hikes and my ears warm on ski trips. Great job Buff!
    p.s. Thank you for the super fast 2 day delivery!

    Wore it ALL of February

    I love this thing! wore it for just about every minute of February this year. I needed something to help with the draft from the edge of my jacket neck without being so bulky that the jacket wont zip, and this fits the bill perfectly

    It is thin, and so not all that warm on its own below 0 F. But when the wind was howling up the ski lift it did its job. I also found that the condensation wasn't too bad, a definite bonus

    It also really helps to warm up the light jackets/vests a few degrees

    Wore it ALL of February

    I don't leave for any outdoor activity without my buff! Skiing, biking, running, hiking, fishing, rafting.. you name it! Seriously the sky is the limit for what these things can do, I don't know how I ever lived without it.

    Great all year round!

    Buffs are the essential piece of gear for any excursion or short outdoor outing. In the winter it can be a great ski mask, and in the summer, I soak it with water and leave it around my neck for those long treks through the desert. Everyone needs at least 2!

    Can't get over how warm this is.

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

    I'm not sure what sort of black magic they use to make these but buffs are so incredibly warm for the weight of the fabric . With all the warm weather we've had this winter, I haven't had that many chances to wear it, but the few times I wore it I've actually had to take it off because my neck was sweating. I can't want to use this more, it's a great addition to my gear!

    Great neck warmer!

    I love this Buff! I hate when wind is able to get into your cycling jersey and make your ride miserable. I am able to keep my neck warm and wick away the sweat. Really like the "Sitting Bull" design. Looks great with your cycling kits and keeps you fashionable as you ride! It is not tight about my neck or is it too big. Feels just right.

    I am 5'5 in and 145 lbs for sizing reference.

    another buff!

    I love Buffs for keeping my bangs out of my face, especially on days where I don't wash my hair and it is disgusting. I have 3 of these now, and I am starting to feel like a hoarder but they do come in handy on the trail, working outdoors, and even just for travelling... you can wear one as a headband and one as a scarf and they take next to no space in your pack. If you hurt yourself you can Mcgyver a Buff into a tourniquet or ghetto sling. I have one with lions and other African creatures on it (must be discontinued now, I don't see it on the site), a merino wool one (HIGHLY RECOMMEND! not itchy or bulky at all), and the "Sitting Bull" version on this page. Aside from my confusion on the name "Sitting Bull" (it is more of a Tlingit or Haida style), the design is really attractive and I get compliments on it all the time :)))

    breaths well and cuts the wind

    I bought this for snow kiting, works great as a quick cover to pull up over your face when the wind blasts. You can breath through it easily without the moisture settling on it like fleece. Also looks cute as a head band for skate skiing. I'd but a couple more in different colors.


      I LOVE the Buff for covering my head on runs during warm, mild, windy, or cool days. Perfect material to ward off sun, yet keep my head cool and hair away from my face. The pattern was pretty neat, too. Unless it's really cold outside, I won't run without this!
