4.0 out of 5 stars I'm a Convert!, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Buff Merino Wool Multi Functional Headwear (Sports Apparel)
I first noticed Buffs some years ago and was not convinced. Heavily marketed in places like Millets, Blacks, and Cotswold Camping they seemed very much an overpriced fashion accessory for trendy backpacking hipsters, and not something to be seen in as a self respecting gentleman over 30!

Being a fan of merino wool however I recently stumbled across this woollen version which caused me to reconsider.
The principle attraction was it's neat compactness; here was a garment professing similar functions to a scarf and more, yet which tucks down to about the size of a cigarette packet. Still somewhat sceptical I resolved to splash out on a very conservative grey version.

I have to say I'm delighted I gave it a try. Small enough to live in my coat pocket I'm rarely without it now. Mainly used as a scarf or sometimes as a beanie to cover my ears. It works especially well combined with a hat or cap and is thin enough to slip under a cycle helmet keeping ears face and neck toastie whilst out on wintery roads without overheating - I'm converted now and will most likely get more as gifts.

So why not five stars? I do think it is a marvellously innovative product with great value in it's versatility.
Even so, £20 for a 50g 2' tube of fabric does sting the wallet no matter how pretty the packaging.
- I still recommend it highly however -
