Buff! More than a headband – Review

PhotobucketBuff’s are SO useful (and fashionable), whether you’re a homeschooler or anyone who is on-the-go, whether you’re skiing, hiking, taking a walk or just living your life.  Recently we stumbled across a limited selection of Buff’s at an outdoor supply store.  We bought one for our 7 year old daughter and she ADORED it.  So we contacted the Buff company, and asked for some samples in exchange for an honest review 🙂

At first glance, a Buff looks like a headband.  Here’s what our Buff’s looked like when we excitedly opened the box. Photobucket

We received a Junior Buff for my 7 year old, as well as 1 Original Buff, 1 Polar Buff and a 100% Merino wool Buff.Photobucket

PhotobucketBuff’s are so much more than a headband!  How do we wear our Buff’s? As a hairband, headband, a scarf, over our eyes to play Blindman’s Buff, a ponytail “scrunchee”, a cowl, a hat, a pirate-style cap, a wristband, an anklet, a belt, what my daughter calls a “Jack cap”, and more!

My son’s favourite way to wear his Original Buff is as a headband.  My daughter’s favourites were as a hairband, kerchief, and cowl.  She also experimented with Buff as a bandeau top and as a mini-skirt around the house – these would be great for bathing suit coverups on the beach (a la Survivor)!  My husband’s favourite way to wear the Buff was as a hat, and he mostly wore the Polar Fleece Buff.  Me, I LOVE wearing my hot pink, soft, 100% Merino Buff, especially as a stylish cowl Photobucketand a hairband.  We’ve been happily wearing our Buff’s for over a month now and have Photobucketall found them so handy.  Whenever it unexpectedly starts snowing, raining, or gusting wind, we can just throw our Buff’s up over our heads.  I can see these being extremely useful for mission trips.  We plan to take a family mission trip in the future and we’ll definitely stock up on Buff’s before we go!
