Buff's UV Headband takes the bulk out of the original Buff when you just want an effective headband to keep your ears warm and wick sweat away.
Wide and seamless headband to provide comfort under the helmet. Made using Coolmax fabrics which guarantee breathability, quick drying and UV protection against the sun radiation.
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.
