it performs better for that task than any scarf or long necked ...
27 November 2016
As a slim woman, I've come to realise that this product is a little large for me. I've come to realise this because when I try to pull it up to cover my mouth and nose in the cold weather, it will fall down before very long. Having said that, it performs better for that task than any scarf or long necked jumper I have could ever do. I use this for cycling and it's good for that activity because, unlike a scarf, it's never going to become unravelled and blow away or cause me any distraction or danger. The colour is spot on for me: more of a brick red than a true red; I love it. The thing I hate most about this product though is the label: it is quite long and is sewn on to the bottom of the Buff; this means that it is often visible as, even though it's on the inside, its long length means that it has a tendency to expose itself! The label is not Buff-branded and its stark white appearance just cheapens the product. I don't want to cut it off because that would look just as bad and the resultant rough edge might lead to itching and scratching. Shame. This product itself can be a little itchy at times, even though it is fine Merino; I personally think that given all of Merino's other great qualities, the very occasional itchy neck is a sacrifice that I'm happy to make.
