Buff's UV Headband takes the bulk out of the original Buff when you just want a slim but effective headband to keep your ears warm and wick sweat away.
The UV Headband BUFF now has Bonding Technology used in the manufacturing process and has a revised fitting for a better ergonomic headband shape. This high-tech seam bonding creates extra flat and welded seams for minimum friction against the skin. Headband BUFF is made of stretchy Coolmax Extreme Fabric which is perfect for running as the fabric absorbs forehead perspiration and has excellent breathability and humidity control.
Uses: UV Headband BUFF can be worn as a headband or a hairband.
Buff's Original Buff is a classic piece of outdoor kit. Marketed to within an inch of its life it nonetheless is a pretty useful thing. I won't go on a long trek without one and I usually wear it around my neck where it adds quite a bit of warmth and protects my neck from the sun.
It sometimes gets too hot to wear but for the cooler three seasons its an everyday accessory. There are times when I've worn it across my nose and mouth to protect against windblown dust and there are times when I've worn it in beanie mode - though I like a bespoke beanie as a first choice.
So I haven't really explored the other configurations but I don't need to - I know what it does for me and I really find it useful.
Buff's UV Headband provides the advantages of Original Buff worn as a headband - without the bulk of fabric.
