With edgy styling and unique shape, Buff's Bandana Buff® offers cold weather protection with attitude. Because it's one piece, the Bandana Buff® won't come undone like a typical bandana or scarf. It combines a layer of wicking microfiber with a layer of insulating Polartec® fleece to keep your face and neck warm and dry.
These things make wearing "neck warmers" cool again. I ditched neck warmers back in grade school because A.) they always froze and thawed into a goopy dinosaur breath ridden mess of lukewarm fuzz and B.) they just weren't cool any more. Buffs are quite the opposite. Asides from being the "in" product these days, they're low profile and light weight - but the material is quality enough to keep the wind off my face without soaking through from constant breathing. This seemingly little detail is what makes or breaks such a product, and this one does the trick. As an added plus they come in tons of sweet designs whether your a park rat, a grand mother or a heady soul rider.
I got this Buff for Snowboarding and while hiking in the desert. It does feel a little cool when snowboarding as in it doesn't keep my neck as warm as a fleece neck gaiter and like everything else it is still slightly hard to breath through, but it is OK. It keeps the snow and sun off my face.
Down in the hot desert I use it to keep the sun from burning my neck and face. It works very well and also converts to many different ways to wear it! I Love My Buff! :)
These buffs are extremely lightweight and breathable. In fact, I wear them over my face while doing aerobic activities and I don't feel as though my breathing is impeded one bit. I primarily use Buffs for UV protection while fly fishing and as a really light neck gaiter while skiing. I would note that Buffs are not warm for skiing, but they will keep the wind directly off your face and keep the snow out of your mouth when in deep powder.
too tight. flex fit hats are also to tight for me though for your reference. If you are normal or smaller person it's probably fine. I wish they had a two sizes, large and small but they don't so return it is. I still gave good rating though because if it fits you I imagine it's would be great.
I wore the UV Buff Bandana while biking around the dusty streets of Black Rock City Nevada, and it was perfect for the task! My neck was protected the sun and I was able to keep my mouth and nose covered when the epic dust storms blew through. Plus, the classic bandana print was a winner.
I use it for either snowboarding or playing soccer on cold days. Either way it works great. Light weight so it doesnt get to hot but dries quickly. These things are great for any activity that you need to have a little face or head protection.
I wore the buffs on 2 blistering days fly fishing in Southern California and it protected my face and my neck from the sunburn and kept me cool. I will try it on my next half marathon run.
Great product, will buy again for my wife.
