    One Buff, six million uses.

    The beauty of the UV Half Buff is its simplicity. Half the size of a regular Buff, it fits perfectly under hats and helmets, around ears and hair, or even around wrists. No matter how you wear it, it blocks 95% of UV radiation, wicks moisture, dries quickly, and, thanks to a Polygiene odor-resistant treatment, won't even get stinky.

    Warm and Versatile

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    Love it! I bought it to wear as a headband when working out and skiing. Fits great underneath my helmet and adds some extra warmth. It's breathable enough to avoid overheating when working out/runningn too!

    Warmth with breathability

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size

    I purchased this to use when running outside in the UT cold. Fit is great and it kept my head warm without becoming overly warm or sweaty. One of the main reasons I purchased this was to have something over my ears because the cold air really bothers them. Though the lightweight material worked wonders for not overheating my head like a beanie or hat, it did let in a little too much air. I think this will be better if I fold over the material some more.

    Great purchase and happy with it overall.

    Protect Yoself

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

    I'm a redhead, so my life has been filled with sunburns every shade of the spectrum. This does not exclude my scalp, which of course is the hardest to protect. I have thick, curly hair so wearing a hat is usually out of the question and sunscreen just doesn't do it. While perusing through backcountry one day I stumbled across the buffs and knew this was the ticket! This half buff is just big enough to cover all my worry areas on my head, but not so big that I feel like I've wrapped my head in a towel. I got it in the magma color which is super fun and I don't feel like such a dorky ginger wearing it. 3 cheers for sun protection!

    Halfsies all the way.

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

    I had kind of a hard time choosing between the half and full Buff. I finally decided on the Half Buff since I really wanted to use it like a headband at the gym and when I'm out being adventurous and such. I made a good choice, what can I say. The Half Buff is perfect as a headband and doesn't slide down my head like some other headbands do. I need more!

    Great for Running

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

    Bought a few to use hiking, I always forget them hiking but it turns out they are the best thing ever for running! Use it as a headband with the benefit of wicking away the sweat and also keeping my ear-buds in without working about sweat getting in place.

    Love the versatility!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size

    I went with the half buff because I plan to use it mostly as a headband or around my neck for warmth or to wick away sweat as I hike, and I felt like the full buff would be too much material for me. Perfect choice! I used this while hiking in Big Basin and it provided the perfect amount of warmth around my neck while we hiked in the cool, damp forest. When the weather warmed up and the sun beat down on us, I pulled it up as a headband to keep the sweat off my face. Stylish, inexpensive, and versatile. Couldn't ask for anything more! Definitely adding a few more to my wardrobe in the future!

    Minimalist Product w/ Maximal Function

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    Bought this for my wife as a Christmas stocking-stuffer item; she uses it in a variety of ways on a several-times-weekly basis for skiing. It's been a reliable neck warmer that also helps hold hair up after skiing, and has had multiple other uses as well.



    The half buff is breathable, at the same time that it defeats bitter wind chill on bare skin -- a hard feat to accomplish.



    Has proven to be so utilitarian that each of my daughters got one of their own, and I intend to grab another for my "go" bag as a back up for the merino buff I normally use.



    Highly recommended.

    best headband ever!!!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I own a lot of Buffs. A LOT. The only complaint I've ever about them is that it's just too much material for me to use as a comfortable headband (they always bunch up and give me headaches). This thing was the answer to my prayers: perfect size for a headband, yet still big enough to wear around my neck for warmer ski days. I seriously wear these things all the time and hardly ever leave my house without one.

    buff! buff! buff! can't get enough!

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

    I purchased this in the Utah print, the one with the arches. I totally love the way it looks and fits. I love how breathable it is, keeping me nice and cool. Odor resistant material, great addition especially if you are an active person, working up a sweat. I personally enjoy the versatility as well. Even came with diagrams on the package of all the fun ways to rock it!

    Once you go Buff, you don't go back.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    Have several regular/full length Buffs. Love 'em all, one of the best pieces in my gear closet. Flexible as a head warmer, headband, neck gaiter, etc etc. I even prefer it to the sleeping eye masks while travelling as less prone to shifting around on my face.



    Got a couple half-Buffs now as the length is much better for use under helmets or even just as headband compared to the regular Buff.

    Buff's are the bomb.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    Buff's are the best, whether as a wind/dust guard, sweat band, neck guard, hair band, face band, etc. We use them for most of our outdoor activities. Their website shows all the different ways to use them, and I can attest. Skiing, hiking, biking, rafting, boating, the list goes on, not to mention you can rep your bad-ass state.

    The Buff UV keeps me cool even when I'm under pressure. Thanks Buff!

    Versatile and super comfy

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    After hearing all the rave reviews for Buffs I figured I'd give them a shot and was not disappointed. I was concerned after hearing all the people with large heads say it fit them well that it would be too stretched out for my tiny head, but it fits great. Dries fast, looks super cool (get mad compliments all the time), and just the ability to wear it a bunch of different ways for different uses makes it great. Will be picking up another.

    Works great for under helmet

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    We grabbed 3 of the Colorado Flag Buffs and stuck them under our mountain bike helmets. Used them on the Commando Run behind Vail last week.Worked very well ! Never felt them on, kept sweat from running into our eyes and dried really fast. We use them in the gym to keep sweat off our faces and for the ladies - it works great at keeping hair out of the way too! Once they come back in stock I am going to buy a 20 for clients as a present. Lots of great flags to choose from and great quality. I tried the ALO yoga (to thick) Salomon (to loose) and the Buff headband (equally good, if not better - but does not yet come with Colorado Flag). Enjoy your adventure with style, sans sweat in your eyes!

    Works great for under helmet

    Perfect for the sun

      After spending all week out in the hot summer sun and feeling the back of my neck bake I threw this on. Even just wearing it around the neck made a huge difference. No sunburn and no baking feeling. This thing is small enough to fit in a pocket so I think it is going to be with me almost anywhere I go.

      Is Oregon coming back in stock?

      How does the buff uv half buff attach? Is there a way to tie it on? This just hangs down the back of the neck, right?
      Thanks
