|A blurry photo of a few buffs in my extensive collection. (Laundry day.)|
My First Buffs were free
Alex got two free "multiclavas" from his favorite gear website: Treestuff.com (he's an arborist). He received two of each, so I inherited a pair. Shortly after we discovered the joys of multiclavas, I went to an Ohio State game and got a free "Yowie" for breast cancer awareness. I wish more races would give Buffs as swag. (From here out, I'm going to refer to these as Buffs even though they aren't officially branded.)
|Fun times in official Buffs|
Buffs can be used for any activity
Alex and I have used our Buffs for running, hiking, canoeing, fishing, SUPing, camping, keeping bugs away, UV protection, and he uses them for tree climbing. Having a bad hair day? Put on a Buff.
My first official Buff branded item was a headband
I ran my first 10 miler race in a Buff headband. I tried everything to keep sweat out of my eyes last summer (even a Halo headband–which was obviously designed for an unstylish bald man) and besides a Headsweats ball cap, I wasn't having any luck. The Buff UV headband kept the sweat from rolling down my face, plus I looked cool. (ha)
Buffs can be used in any weather
I own a half dozen official Buffs of various styles and patterns. Not only do I use them in the summer, I also layer them in the winter. We ran a snowy trail 10k in January and Buffs kept my face and ears warm the whole way.
Buffs can be worn in a many ways
Finally, the greatest selling point: the multiple ways to wear a Buff. Watch and learn:
