    Skiing buff

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I bought this for my son for skiing. He really likes it. Not too heavy but still keeps his face protected from the elements.

    Buff baby

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    This is a great product overall. I use mine for mtn biking on chilly PNW days and skiing when I don't need a full fleece neckwarmer. Overall the material is wicking and does not seem to pick up odor easily.

    I love a buff!

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

    Its been through the wringer. I love it for working outside, mowing the lawn, or walking around the amusement park! I keep it wrapped around my head to keep the critters out. LOVE THIS THING!

    Skiing Essential

      A Buff is a must for skiing here in the Wasatch given the amount of snow we receive. I've always felt they're a little overpriced for essentially being a tube of fabric. It'd be great if the two ends were at least hemmed but it's hard to deny how versatile and functional they are.

      sweet buff

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

      Is it comfortable enough that I forget I have it on? Yes. Do I have a lot less sunburns? Yes. Do I look like some kind of river ninja in it? That is up to you.

      Lola Buff

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

      Ordered this buff in Lola and I do like it, but I can only give it 4 stars as I wish the material is made of would be slightly more elastic and the red color would as intense as presented on site (in reality it's a bit closer to brick red). This being said the buff looks pretty good and it is very functional, I use it often, especially for hiking.

      Keepin' the weather off...

      On a paddle day filled with sleet/snow/rain being driven by 40+ knot winds, my buff is a key piece, not so much for warmth, but more to keep my face from been shredded by the cheese grater in the sky..

      Awesome product

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 172lbs

      Buffs are great for everything from long river trips, to a day at the crag, to a warmer day on the ski hill.

      OBSESSED

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

      Seriously though, I love these things. I just bought 4 more for an adventure up Mount Kilimanjaro, but I know I'll be breaking into them well before that. If I could get away wearing these in the office everyday, even without any need to whatsoever, I totally would.

      Hiking, skiing, fishing, yard work, yoga, beaching it, as a headband to match a cute outfit, you name it, these work for any thing. I have the original and the UV, along with a headband version, and I use them all the time. Great for soaking in a mountain steam to cool off or covering my face while skiing in the cold but not extreme temperatures in the winter.

      They're cute, comfy, come in about a million colors, and are so versatile in the ways you can wear them. I usually opt for headband or lower face coverage, but I'm experimenting with all the other ways to wear them too!

      So great my daughter tried to steal it.

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

      I picked up a buff as I was about to head on a family vacation hitting the big 5 in Utah (starting in Vegas and ending in Denver). It was August, and going to be hot (but dry), and thought it would be nice to get the sun off my neck or to pour some water on it to help cool off. It stayed in my pocket the entire trip and was constantly being pulled out. It helped me stay cool as described, and my daughter kept trying to steal it. It was used around the neck, completely over the head, as a bandana, as a bandana under a sun hat, and took constant water to help us keep cool.

      Great for everything

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: One size
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 190lbs

      This half buff kept me warm enough on the very cold days and was still thin enough for a warm mountain day. Definitely helped keep the sun of my neck and face. Feels great.

      Covering you from the wind, snow and sun

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 185lbs

      The original Buff is great for all seasons - a nice, lightweight
      covering for skiing when you need to keep the chill off your face as well as an awesome piece of gear for summer hiking to keep the sun off your neck, cool you down when soaked in water or as an impromptu headband for those super sweaty days. A must have.

      Unfinished edges

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

      I prefer the Half Buff, but I gave this as a gift and it is well loved on the mountain skiing or back packing. Very versatile and light weight. Worth the ounces on any trip.

      "Brocade Pink" colors not as pictured

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size

      I just received my order of several Buffs from Backcountry which has a great online collection of types and patterns. However, stay away from the "Brocade Pink" design if you are looking for vibrant colors like those shown in the photo online. The one I received is very washed-out looking and the colors are very faded, as though it had been run through the washer with bleach. Sadly, I have to return it. I am giving the Brocade Pink Buff a 3 star rating, because it is "adequate for the job," but I give it no stars for looks. Back it goes!

      Buffs Rule!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I own 4 so far. As ssen in the picture, I lent my boyfriend one of mine while out climbing on a chilly morning. Not cool enough for a full on hat, Buffs are the perfect companion. UV ones and original ones. I just love how handy and versatile they are. I will have mine around my neck one minute and up onto my head the next. I sleep with one when I'm sleeping outside, as it stays put on your head keeping cool drafts off. Up on your face, around your head, neck, folded or completely open for full coverage. Patterns are fun too :)

      Buffs Rule!

      Simple and Smart

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

      Recently got this as a Christmas present, and promptly put it through its paces. I love the length, and having the option to either wear it folded as a face mask or long to protect my ears and neck.

      I have found I prefer wearing it up on my head, with the option to pull it up over my chin and nose when I need it. The thin fabric blocks wind quite well, but is not a great thermal insulator. This is to be expected, and can be fixed by using a wool or Polartech Buff. I love the thin nature of it, as I can pull the material in under my goggles, providing full coverage of neck, ears, nose, cheeks, etc.



      While it certainly does get moist and frosty, like any neck warmer will, it dries remarkably fast. Put it on top of a heater or base board for five to ten minutes, and it will be damn near dry. Makes wearing it all the more enjoyable.

      Bottom line- saved my face from windchill temps in the -40s, in style at that.
