Buff Seamless Headband Review

Apparel Pro Reviews

Bottom Line
The Buff Seamless Headband is a great product, that is inexpensive, simple, and highly functional. You can wear it under a helmet to keep your head and ears warm, and then pop it off to cool down, and place it in a pocket until it’s needed again. The headband is comfortable, soft and stretchy, and the seamless design causes no binding nor constrictions underneath a helmet, and it’s thin enough that you can wear a skull cap along with it. It provides sun and wind protection, and wicks extremely well, so you don’t become wet nor have sweat dribbling into your eyes.

Made with CoolMax® Extreme, the Seamless Headband Buff® blocks 95% UV rays, wicks sweat with its four-channel fibers, keeps athletes cool in hotter months, and provides an extra layer of warmth to slide over their ears on cold days. Cyclists, climbers and kayakers love its size and functionality as a helmet liner worn as a headband or skullcap under the helmet. Its Polygiene® silver ion treatment prevents odor-causing bacteria and keeps the helmet and headband smelling fresh no matter how hard you sweat.

The Seamless Headband Buff is unisex and available in colors and styles ranging from subdued black to vibrant colors and brilliant patterns.

    There is a simple solution. Cut Buff in two and it is perfect for the hot summer rides.

    I bought two Buffs for me, two for my wifes, and one for my niece. We love it. It’s one of those “why didn’t i think of that!” and the odor control works. In the winter, i always wear one under the helmet and one on the wrist to blow my nose. It works awesome. I gotta try Jabooz suggestion and cut it in half for summer riding.

    I tried a Buff just today. I like it way better than my cheap $2 bandanas. The prints have “seams”, but not the actual items. The Buff UV (full; not headband) works really well under a full face. It dried before I knew it, when I went to test how soaked it was after I finished my ride.

    I got mine for $23 at BillyTheTree, but I don’t really recommend them, since it took them 10 days from day of order to day that it shipped. USPS’s fine shipping took some disappointment off that, since it only 2 days to get to me (I live close by).

    I wish they had more patterns that I like. I sort of like non woodland camo patterns. I got the Duna, which was kind of like a desert camo, but I want a white/grey/black urban camo one.
