Our Review

So "what is a BUFF®?" you may be asking. To put it simply: multifunctional headwear. Ideal for outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, skiing etc, where protection/warmth may be required. Keen to try some out the guys from Buff kindly sent us over a couple to try out (children and adults)


BUFF® Headwear is uniquely versatile; there are many ways to wear them. They can be worn up to 13 different ways to keep warm or add protection from the elements. This video below demonstrates all the ways to wear a buff, from neckerchiefs, saharine to beanies and wristbands. All pretty straightforward, but if you get stuck, it's worth a watch.

We had a go at trying all the ways to wear a buff and had fun coming up with our own ideas! My daughter's favourite was the cap. She wore it all day and even forgot she had it on till bedtime!

Different Ways to Wear a Buff

Various types of BUFF® Headwear are available with different technical features, from UV protection BUFF® to polar BUFF® Headwear, for all adventures across any season. My BUFF® was high UV protection. The technical features include:

  • at least 95% UV protection
  • Coolmax Extreme to wick moisture ( sweat ) away from the skin to the outer layer of the fabric
  • Treated with polygiene so the buff remains fresh and prevents the build-up of bacteria in the fabric.

We took the BUFF® Headwear out upon the hills when the sun appeared. I was pleased with mine; very comfortable to wear ( no seams ) and gave good protection against the sun. A good fit for my oldest daughter and me.

After a wash, both BUFF® Headwear items still looked good, with no colour or shape loss.

My daughter found the buff very comfortable to wear, lovely and soft. The funky design was appealing. She loved wearing it and found it handy that it wasn't too bulky to fit in a pocket.

We think these are a great bit of versatile kit to throw in your rucksack when you're off on an outdoor adventure. It might not seem much when you look at a BUFF®, but there is more to them than meets the eye!
