I literally never take it off

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

I camp for 2 weeks out of every month for work and have been wearing my wool buff nonstop when I'm working since it arrived in the mail. The upsides: it's looooooooooooong. (It's that long) So you can pull one end up over your head while the other side goes over your nose and the rest puddles around your neck and it's like a baselayer for your hat AND a scarf at the same time!! During the day, if it's a little hotter, I just let it hang around my neck and I don't even notice that it's there. Or if I'm feeling fancy, I use it as a headband. But it's really a little too long to be a great headband. It's bulky and you can't put a baseball cap over it.
The downside: widthwise, it is looser than I'd like. When I pull it up over my nose it slides down and requires readjustment. I think this is 'cause it's wool and doesn't retain it's shape as well. I think it has stretched out a bit. I don't have a synthetic one for comparison, though I'd kinda like one. I'd wear 9 buffs at the same time in the field if I had 'em.
The campfire smell. You will never get rid of the campfire smell. You will wash it (it's highly washable, I've washed it like 4 times, I didn't do anything special) and it will still stubbornly smell like campfire. If I wore my buff in the frontcountry, people would start yelling, "go back to your bonfire, you hippie!" Or something similarly alarming. The smell is that obvious. I'd buy a frontcountry buff, but I probably wouldn't be able to resist bringing it to work.

Conclusion: Buy one. Buy 6! Buy one for me!

Practical difference

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

It's easy to wear, does not overheat, it's not bulky, it doesn't itch and it doesn't stink. It's definitely a better alternative than a scarf.

Nice

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

Gave this as a gift to my girlfriend and she loves it. She says it is super long so she can wear it multiple different ways and still have it tuck into her jacket or coat...

Too big

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

I have a narrow neck and medium size face. I found that this was too big. And, based upon the review of stretching, it would be way too big.

how many inches "long" (aka high) is it?...

how many inches "long" (aka high) is it? I know they come in various sizes. Thanks!

Great versitile piece

How could the original buff get any better?
Make it wool!

With this all merino wool tube of fabric, your choices of how to wear it are almost unlimited.
In the winter, it makes a great facemask that doesn't ice up right away since that wool is so good at pushing that moisture out. It's also great as a headband to keep your ears warm.
As mentioned in the other review, it is about twice as long, so keep that in mind.
Last thing, if you plan on wearing it as a mask at all, plan on just buying a second Buff, since that one might get a little stinky after some use

multi-functional

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have 4 of these merino buffs, dark red, green, and 2 printed white. Use them as headband for cold weather runs, neck warmer for boarding, and the 2 printed white ones as scarf-alternatives. Merino is soft, and once washed, they become softer. They are really one of those highly multi-functional accessories that I can't live without. They are 2x as long as the regular buffs, and fit a bit looser, so be warned.
