    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.

    By far my favorite type of headband

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: One size fits all

    I love the versatility of these headbands and how you can use them different ways. It is the only type so far that has been able to contain my mane.

    Halfie for the Win!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I bought one for my best friend as a birthday gift, she's constantly complaining that her full buff is just too much fabric and she has tried to steal my half buff on numerous occasions so she was over the moon when I gave this to her. She's a convert and has requested half buffs for her birthday from here on out!

    Best thing I didn't know I needed

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

    I heard some good reviews about Buffs and figured since it has so many uses, that it would be a good thing to add to my purchase. So far, I have used it as a helmet liner when rock climbing and cycling, when I went on a run to hold in my headphones, as a hairband, and just as a headband to walk. I love it!

    It's a buff

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Buffs are great for just about anything. Use it as a sweat band. Or to keep your hair out of your face. I see it as a must for any hike or backpacking trip. I think in a first aid situation a buff could also be useful

    Flamboyant and form fitting

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I purchased this as a gift for my sister and it has become one of her favorite running items. It helps with hair, sweat, and warmth during the cold months and hair, sweat, and sun during the warm months. and It looks nifty as well.

    Awesome

      I bought my first Buff about 6 years ago. And I finally bought another one recently. Not because I needed it, but just b/c I thought having a second one around would be nice. Case in point is that for such a thin piece of fabric, its stood the test of time. Sometimes it gets a little funky after wearing it over my face on a cold ski day for hours, but otherwise i'm super impressed. The full version can be a little too much material for me at times, i hate bulky things around my neck. Thus the perfect fit for this half model.

      Perfect!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I wanted something I could use around my neck/face for snowboarding and then to cover up my notoriously messy hair afterwards at the bar... this does both of those things well!

      My only complaint is that the Roles Grey colorway has two large Buff logos on it and there's no way to wear it without one showing... but I've gotten over that pretty quickly because it's soft and cozy. For reference, it's 8.5" wide, which is perfect!

      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.

      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
