I bought this one last winter (2015) to add to my collection of other buff products. I have merino wool buffs, standard material buffs, SPF buffs, and now this one. I have to say THIS one is what I wore on my head all winter long. I used the standard, thinner material for my neck (until I started wrapping with a shemagh), and this buff kept my bald head toasty all winter.
I am getting a couple more just to be able to mix up the colors, but trust me when I say that this one is truly the warmest, best fitting, most versatile of all of the collections, and not so long that it requires excess twisting, tucking, or hanging material.
Like a second skin wonderful for a long run. These cost more than I'd normally spend on knickers but well worth the money. I will definitely be buying some more.
The quality of the buff was insane, super soft merino wool was the ideal comforter during the cold nights and windy walking during the day. for me the buff was best used on summit night - I was able to use it to keep my neck warm as well as pull it over my mouth to reduce the effects of the thin cold air. The buff stood well with the sweat and dirt that was thrown its way and I would definitely get another one for sure! The wicking of the material made the buff super breathable as well! Fantastic buff!!
The Polar Buff was my personal favourite. I really liked this one because of the thick section at the bottom of the Buff for that extra warmth, it was brilliant for the cold temperatures. What I also liked was that you could use this Buff upside down with the thick section being on top, I often wore it this way when it dumped with snow! This product definitely did its job of keeping me warm on the slopes and I would highly recommend this Buff for cold conditions.
Just love it. Fellow pilgrims on the Camino - the map is just full of memories as you read it.
Still use a 7 year old version of this one. Apart from a little wear, it is still good as new, stretchy, and warm when i need it
Only negative point i have is that is gets a little too warm sometimes
