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. The Windproof Buff is in two sections, the first is a heavy weight version of Buff's proprietary super stretch fabric, and the second is Windstopper.
If you are into downhill skiing, motorcycling or indeed anything that involves a degree of speed and need the ultimate in protection from the cold and wind then this double layer of seamless BUFF polyester microfibre combined with a Gore Windstopper fleece fabric makes Windproof BUFF the perfect solution for keeping out the chills. Totally windproof and water repellent with an elastic section to improve fit, the scooped shape at the front is perfect for fitting inside the neck of your jacket too.
Buff's Windproof Buff does exactly what you'd expect, stops the wind! The use of Gore Windstopper fabric shows the level of quality in this Buff and you can be sure that this will work. It is perfect for cold conditions where you need to make sure you can stay protected from the elements.
The Windstopper fabric doesn't cover the whole Buff. It's much thicker and more rigid than the rest of the material so it's certainly better that it doesn't cover the whole Buff. There is roughly 25cm from the bottom that is covered in Windstopper while the rest of the fabric is still heavy duty, insulated material that is perfect for cold conditions.
