What's A Buff?


The original BUFF® tubular is a long tube made from a breathable and moisture-wicking microfiber. BUFF® tubulars are one of the most versatile items that we carry. BUFF® tubulars can be worn in a variety of ways, and in a variety of climates. In warm weather, I frequently wear my BUFF® tubulars as a bandana to provide some sun protection and keep my head cool, or as a headband to keep the sweat out of my eyes. In the winter, I often find myself using the same exact BUFF® tubular as a face mask, balaclava, or even a lightweight winter hat (it’s a perfect weight for vigorous cross country skiing or an early morning run).

In addition to the original BUFF® tubulars, other models include a shorter headband-specific style, a model made from merino wool instead of microfiber, a Polar BUFF® tubulars that adds fleece for additional warmth in chilly temperatures, a UV BUFF® tubulars that provides additional sun protection, and an Insect Shield model that helps to keep the bugs away.
