    Feels great next to skin.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Merino wool is where it's at! Soft with natural elastic, this fabric feels warm, but does not make you overheated when coming down the slopes. It is also odor-resistant,; can't say enough about that, especially because I use it as a snow mask on a regular basis. No ski gear bag is complete without a Buff

    Thin, but gets the job done.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    As many people have mentioned, this thing is really thin. If you're keeping it mainly around your neck, then I would suggest a thicker neck gaiter. Despite the thickness, I love that the length allows me to cover my neck all the up to my (bald) head!

    Waking up during a cold winter night in the woods simply because my beanie falls off and my head is frozen is not fun... brrrr! Layering this under a beanie was perfect. Paranoia while taking it on and off allowed it to last surprisingly long.

    100% wool keeps the stink (at least to my nose) down to a min, which is great if you rarely wash your wools for ecological/laziness-related reasons! :)

    If it was a *bit* thicker, it would be perfection. First one lasted a good 3-4 years. On my second one, and since I'm creature of habit, I'll be getting more!

    To stretchy and a little thin

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    I really wanted to like this because I love merino wool. If I put this over my nose as a face shield, I have to keep adjusting it to stay up. Also if this was thicker or lined with fleece, it would be perfect, but as is, it's a little to thin for my liking. It's not scratchy...merino wool usually isn't. I like the longer length of it. Keeps me warm down to 30's but any lower I would need a thicker lined one.

    Everyone should have one of these

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These things are super flexible and can be worn like 30 different ways, they do a great job of wicking moisture, blocking the sun, and keeping sweat out of your eyes. I will never go backpacking again without mine.

    Merino Buff!?

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

    Oh yes, SO excited about this!

    Fabric is a little lighter than I expected, and stretchier, which is a great thing in my opinion! It's long enough to double up when you need/want a thicker layer, and it stretches more easily than a classic buff (and I had always found the classic buff to feel claustrophobic, so I'm stoked on this wool version!)

    Update: Just returned from skiing in Chile where we had some pretty cold temps and wind on a few days. I used this buff over my merino balaclava and it worked out great. It still fit under my helmet, or over a hat, and was the perfect extra layer, without being overkill, or too bulky, etc., and you have the option to use a single layer or fold it over since it's so long. Nice and versatile. Love it.

    Buff doesn't bluff!

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

    Bought this merino wool buff for backpacking, camping, traveling, outdoor sports practices, and basically any time I find myself outside in cooler weather. I like the merino for cooler weather because it is warmer than the original microfiber buff. It keeps my neck warm when worn doubled/tripled over, and is light and airy enough for mild temps when worn as a bandana. I used it on a dayhike of a strenuous part of the AT in the winter, and it kept my face and neck warm and protected from the harsh cold air. I didn't even get sweaty underneath it! It's so light that I forget to take it off after I get back from a day out. It packs super small (fist size). Great thing to throw into your backpack or purse. Super functional, highly recommend!

    Buy This Buff!

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

    I am a huge fan of all things Buff, but for the winter activity enthusiast, the Wool Buff is absolutely the way to go. The Wool Buff is longer than the standard buff, protecting more of your poor skin from windburn and/or frostbite due to repeated face shots. It's thicker and warmer than a standard buff, so it keeps those awkward neck/underchin/sideface regions super cozy on the chairlift and in blustery/squally conditions. On the other hand, it's also less thick and gaper-y than a huge fleece neckwarmer, and there is less of that awkward breathing-onto-my-neckwarmer-makes-it-wet-and-then-freezes thing that everyone hates. The Wool Buff also comes in sweet colors and patterns to keep your steez levels high on the slopes.

    Think that's all? The Wool Buff can also be used as a headband or twisted into a hat for winter hiking/climbing/running/nordic skiing, and provides a thinner, better wicking alternative than a fleece hat or headband.

    Leaving the question not whether or not you will buy one of these Buffs, but rather, how many?

    BUUUUUUUFF!!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Buff rules. Get one. I love these things. The original, the UV, and the wooly. The wooly is nice and light but warm. Pretty long so you can double it up. Not the best for super cold days but still a great thing. So soft and no itch. BUUUUFF! gotta love it.

    Least Favorite Buff

      I've bought many buffs off of Backcountry, and this has been my least favorite. I'm not a fan of the wool. It stretches out super easily and randomly attracts hair like no other! When it stretches out, it is almost too big for my face so that when I go skiing with it, it is constantly falling down. And when I have used it to go hiking as a headband, it also falls down or just doesn't stay on well. If you want a tighter fitting buff, go with microfiber. If you like a looser fitting buff wool is for you. Also, it is very long. Once it stopped working as a ski buff for me, I used it as a head band for hiking and cut it in half.

      Perfect

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

      Used this all winter for ice climbing and chilly days at the crag. It's the perfect weight to add a little warmth under a helmet and the extra length allows you to use it as a balaclava without fussing around with the helmet straps too much.

      Wool Buff

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

      I used this only once recently, on a 40 degree day on Chicago's lakefront path. It is quite long, so I doubled it up and used it over my neck all the way to over my nose, like a mask. Performed really well, kept the chill air off my face and helped to eliminate my breathing in cold air. Seems to be well made, versatile functionality. I can see using this thing all year round, to keep my neck cool in summer as well as during winter. Recommended.

      i wear it everyday

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

      These things amaze. Truly one item with a thousand uses. or at least a hundred. When they came out with the wool version i was delighted, got a olive green one and wore it every day until i lost it somewhere in winter's white abyss. So i got another wool one, this time in black. It's longer than both of the others, which is a bonus, since as others have mentioned it can be doubled or tripled -up; great when temps dip down into the teens (�F) and below. When it's warm, i wear it as a do-rag, and it hangs down in the back kind of like a shemagh, giving you some sun protection. For more, you can wear a hat over it or use it as a hat/helmet liner for biking, etc. It also stays cool, so you don't have to keep taking it off and putting it back on as temperatures (inside or out) fluctuate. Really a bad-ass piece of gear that i wear nearly every day.

      Essential Ski Piece

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I love my buff. I won't go skiing anymore without it. You can wear it a variety of ways to fit your needs. I don't overheat in it and it doesn't get uncomfortable.



      It keeps the windchill off my neck and I loop my headphones through it to keep them in place.



      I highly suggest you get one if you find yourself on the mountain often

      Lighter than I expected

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

      I like Buffs and wanted a heavier one for the winter. This one is lighter than I expected.... pretty thin actually.



      I use buffs for all the normal reasons, plus two specialized ones:



      1) a very light buff is ideal for abating camera strap fatigue (and having the strap rub on a burnt neck) when traveling in off-the-grid type places. Not hot. Works wonders.



      2) I find that a buff keeps the sweat from my face from dripping onto my shirt, and that keeps me much dryer overall in the heat. Seems counterintuitive to add what is essentially a neck warmer in order to stay COOLER, but there it is.

      So many uses

      • Fit: True to size

      This is great for just about anything. The extra length allows it to be very versatile. If I am just using it to cover my face I have tripled it up and had a nice warm gaiter. When using it as a balaclava you can double up over your mouth or pull it up from the bottom and only have a single layer over your mouth while still having a double layer over your neck. It is it not cold enough to need it over your face just leaving it bunched up on your neck helps the cold from coming down the top of your jacket. Bottom line is this thing has so many uses, way more than a traditional gaiter or balaclava.

      THE baselayer for above the shoulders

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

      Merino is king. I've been a fan of Buff gaiters for years, and finally opted for the wool. This thing is great weight for our Midwest winters, clearing snow, even hiking.



      I saw a couple of complaints about the buff losing shape, though it sounds like it may be primarily when used as a face mask. I've only used as a neck gaiter, and I have had no issues. In combination with a wool baclava it's the perfect base layer for above the shoulders.



      If Clark Griswold's cousin Eddie had opted for this instead of that black dickie and white sweater combination, how different our world might be. He would have at least been outside helping him with those lights. Th' house shur looks niiiice, Clark.
