Carolyn Highlandwrote a review of Buff Lightweight Merino Wool Buff on October 20, 2015
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?
