This is made from a comfortable lightweight stretchy fabric magically formed into a long seamless tube. I have this in the Elevations print. Bought it last year for winter trail running so I didn't have to breathe in cold dry air. Planned to use it for spring skiing as well, but all my skiing ended up being legitimately cold and windy this past season. Maybe next year.
I've used it as a bike helmet liner as well, as my hair always gets caught on the extra velcro spots in my helmet and wisps of hair fall down and bug me.
I've only used it a few ways but there are so many more uses. I found their video modeling the ways to wear it very helpful. It taught me how to make the buff into a balaclava...even if I haven't worn it out of the house that way yet :) I wish I remembered to bring it with me on a recent trip to wear as a helmet liner and to keep the sun off my neck. They come in so many different fun prints, thinking about picking up a second.
Dot Fade is a little darker Blue than the image shows. I was a little disappointed about that since I was looking for a lighter blue, but it's still a pretty sweet color! I'll keep it and love it!
I only gave it 4 stars because it is slightly darker blue that I expected/wanted. That is Buff's fault though. If it was a lighter blue then I would give it 5 stars.
I got this in the Inca Flair, and love the coloring. I've used it as a headband, neckband, face cover, sun protection- all sorts of things! Packed it for a day outting, hike, backpacking, beach-ing- works great for everything. Absolutely love it, would definitely recommend!
