It’s simple in design and it doesn’t look like much, but the Buff is one our essential bits of touring gear. The Buff, if you’re not familiar with it, is a seamless tube of cloth. However, you can wear it to cover your neck, your ears, your face, or use it as a sweat band or bandana, etc., In a pinch, you could use it to filter sediment out of water as a pre-filter, or as a towel or maybe fashion it into a sling or tourniquet (hope it never comes to that!). In this video, I review the wool Buff and their new headband Buff and show you OUR most common uses for them.
