A Buff is a must have piece of kit for any trek, lightweight and stretchy tube provides insulation, sun & wind protection and can be used in a variety of ways.
Buff says: All the style, function and versatility of Original BUFF but made a little narrower and printed with more feminine designs.
Just like Original BUFF, Women’s Slim Fit BUFF is a seamless, multifunctional tubular accessory ideal for many activities. It’s designed to keep you warm in the cold, and to wick moisture (sweat) away from your skin to keep you cool when it’s hot.
Women’s Slim Fit BUFF is lightweight, breathable, and wind resistant making it extremely comfortable to wear.
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 Slim Fit Buff is identical to the Original Buff - just smaller.
