The UV Half Buff® is half the length of a standard UV Buff® and works seamlessly as a helmet liner, skullcap or headband without the bunching of excess fabric. Made with Coolmax® Extreme fabric, it blocks 95% UV rays, quickly wicks away sweat, keeps you cool in hotter months allowing the heat to escape and provides an extra layer of warmth to slide over your ears on cold days.
The Buff UV Half buff is shorter than the Original buff, but offers the same great style and sun protection while you're on the trail or at the yoga studio.
|Multifunctional:||Wear as a helmet liner, headband, hairband, mask, foulard, neckerchief, scrunchy, or wristband|
I have 2 now and absolutely love them. I have short hair, and when I'm hiking, I like my hair pulled back. These buffs hold securely without being too loose.
I prefer the half Buffs, because they work well on hot days as head and sweat bands and cool days as a neck warmer. The full Buffs provide too much coverage for me.
I had also purchased a cotton Prana headband, which I ended up only wearing a few hours on a 10-day trek. As I should've expected, it was soaked in sweat and took too long to dry. It was so uncomfortable. I immediately switched back to a Buff.
Plus, they are easy to wash up at campsites and dry quickly.
These are going to be taller than what you see in the main image, they have them folded up like a headband, make sure to check out the flat picture in the detail view down below the main image.
They measure about 7.5 inches tall. Super light material, lots of ways to fold it and wear it, really versatile and comfortable. If you wanted a skinnier headband style check out item #BUF0013.
This thing is amazing! Have used for just about everything and haven't had any complaints. Even did great on a 10 degree run. I used it as a neck and face cover and it kept everything warm without creating to much of a breathing restriction.
This is a really good all around buy!!! LOVE IT :)
I like this thing a lot. I have used it more than the full buff. I run hot and really just need something to cut the cold wind a bit. Not as many crazy options with this one but for a head band or low neck gaiter this is the stuff!!!
I now have four of these things and I'm going to get more. The CO flag version is awesome and I constantly get comments on it (wear it running in Denver and hiking/camping in the mountains). I use the half size more than the full size.
I LOVE the Half Buffs! They are so useful! I use mine for walking, running, Zumba, riding. Most of the year I only need the thin Coolmax. However, I have another Half Buff plus an assortment of other Buffs for all weather conditions .I LOVE BUFFS!
