I have to admit that I did not jump on the Buff bandwagon until recently. On a weekend backpacking trip, a friend commented how much he enjoyed his and how useful it was. After that, I went ahead and picked one up and shortly after that I bought two more. I guess it goes without saying that I had discovered how handy Buff products are.
Buff has developed a new fabric they are calling ThermoNet™ which features PrimaLoft®. This is a performance fabric offering both high thermal insulation and breathability for high-output, cold-weather activities. Buff says the hydrophobic, wicking fibers of ThermoNet move moisture away from the skin while trapping heat inside. This keeps you comfortable and dry even in the coldest conditions.
