Buff, original creators of versatile performance headwear for runners, hikers, fishermen and skiers, has planned a winter lineup designed so that nothing stops you from getting outdoors during cold weather.
First for the coming winter months, Buff offers a Merino Buff, which is soft, warm, and wind-resistant yet lightweight, equipped with all the natural moisture management and odor control properties outdoor specialists expect from merino. With classic Buff style, wearers get a winterized version of the original, which can still be worn up to 13 different ways, available in plain or patterned.
One percent of proceeds from the Wool Buff will be donated to environmental nonprofits. In 2012 and 2013, Buff ran environmental conservation projects in France’s Eternal Valley, the Catalan Pyrenees and with England’s Yorkshire Sales Mountain Trust.
Next in the winter lineup is Buff’s new Polar Neckwarmers featuring the warming power of Polartec. The love child of Polartec Classic 100 fleece and microfiber, the Buff Polar gets all the power of thermal protection with the ability to wick and quickly dry. Nine inches longer than the original Buff, the Polar lends itself to more versatility and coverage, however there are only ten different ways to wear it, as opposed to 13. Don this water resistant, ultra-warm layer on long days skiing and snowboarding.
Hoodies also support the Buff winter collection as a stylish and comfortable sweater without the bod. Whether you sport it on or off the slopes, Buff Hoodies are designed to fit on your head or over a helmet. The color assortment includes classic white, black and gray with accompanying neck patterns, as well as tie-dye twists in green and psychedelic blue/orange.
The Buff winter roundup would not be complete without the Buff Balaclava, offered both in classic Buff fiber and wool. A long standing staple for snowsports enthusiasts, the Buff Balaclava is new for the brand and offers face, neck and head protection. Both fiber versions are high-stretch and seamless at the neck, with a flat-lock seam on the crown of the head.
