Soft, protective, versatile

What else can I say? It is a great Buff! Used it throughout the entire JMT and it functioned as my sun protective neck gaiter when at high elevations (super sun exposure), my beanie at night, my face mask when passing other people (oh Covid...), and my hair sweatband when I had not bathed for a couple days and my hair was all crazy. It is durable, and did not get any rips/tears for my entire 2 week trek through the Sierras. Hand washed it in lakes, and it’s still soft. Machine washed it at home and it’s still soft. Great product!

I purchased my first buff for fishing, and found myself wearing it also for backpacking, decided to purchase this one for a recent trip and really enjoyed it, especially since it doubles as a facemask in times like these. All around great sun protection, breathability, and added some wind protection when we were above the treeline.


Is this good as an anti Covid mask for outdoors?

This will be just as effective as other buffs, so not the most ideal. You can accompany this style of face-covering with coffee filters to help filtrate the PM 2.5 particulates. The buff alone has too large of a knit to restrict the virus coming in.
