Product review: Original Buff
Original Buff, £10.95
Miles covered/time: 15,000/two years
What’s good? It’s hard to write about Buff without using superlatives, but I’m going to give it a go… They’re brilliant (damn – failed). If you don’t have one, then buy one.
They’re unobtrusive, cheap, look cool, keep the wind and rain off, are perfectly breathable and you can wear them while hiking, travelling, exercising… anywhere. Not just on a bike.
The original Buff is more suited to summer riding, but it functions fairly well in the winter. I’ve just realised I’m wearing mine in the above headshot. It might as well be stuck to my face.
What’s not? The accompanying DVD (showing you how to make a bandana, balaclava, hood and beanie out of your one-piece Buff) is more amusing than informative, but it was worth watching.
