Buff options for safety and function

There’s never been a better time to embrace Buff wear. Known for its multi-purpose uses, now, Buff head coverings can double as masks for safe social distancing and travel.

I have been loving the women’s CoolNet UV+ offerings, which come in so many amazing patterns and colors, I can’t begin to list them all. Just know that you’ll be able to choose between wildlife, outdoor scenery, solids, and patterns galore. These buffs are 95 percent recycled, engineered with REPREVE® performance microfiber, HeiQ cooling technology, and odor control. The four-way stretch makes it easy to use them as headbands, hair bands, masks, or full-on face coverings for sun protection, cold, and virus protection.

With so many buff choices, it can be easy to overlook Buff’s hat collection, but you definitely want to pair your buff with a beanie for fall and winter outdoor exercise and exploration. This winter, it will be more important than ever to get outside and enjoy fresh air, and the women’s lightweight Merino wool beanies provide just the right amount of protection while allowing your head to breathe. Just $27, the heathered look is stylish while remaining oh-so practical.

What’s your favorite Buff item to wear in the outdoors this fall and winter? Are you ready for outdoor social distancing?
