F.A.Q.

WHAT'S BUFF®?
Buff® is the leading brand and creator of the first seam-free multifunctional tubular wear. It is an extremely versatile garment that can be worn in a number of different ways whilst offering protection from the elements during a wide range of outdoor activities like hiking, running, skiing, cycling, motorcycling, etc. An excellent design also makes it ideal as a casual wear accessory.

HOW MANY WAYS CAN I WEAR IT?
There are at least 12 different ways to wear Buff® headwear. Some of the most popular uses include as a cap, scarf, balaclava, pirate style, Saharan, bandana, hairband, foulard, helmet liner, dust mask, etc.

WHY USE BUFF®?
Buff® headwear helps keep its wearer comfortable, guarding against the cold, sun, wind or dust in rapidly changing outdoor situations. Think of it as a versatile base layer for your head. Buff® provides the same performance benefits for your head that technical fabrics used in other outdoor clothing do for the rest of your body. And because it’s so small and light, it’s the ultimate throw-in-your-pocket garment for unexpected conditions. In addition, with many designs and colours, it’s a great way to make a style statement.

HOW IS THE BUFF® HEADWEAR MADE?
Buff® is created through a proprietary knitting process using a special 100% polyester yarn called microfiber, in which the thinness of each filament is less than 1 Dtex. The pores that are in the external surface of the textile become very small to prevent water and wind from entering in the textile, but at the same time, the pores in the inside surface are big enough to make the fabric highly breathable.

ORIGINAL BUFF® HAS NO SEAMS?
None. Original Buff® headwear is made with special knitting machines that weave in a tubular manner creating a unique product without no irritating seams or hems.

IS THERE ONLY ONE SIZE?
No. There are three sizes available. The Original Buff® size fits most adults. Junior Buff® size is intended for children and teenagers from 5 to 16 years old, and Baby Buff® size is the smallest and fits kids up to 5 years of age. By having three sizes we achieve a perfect fit for the different consumer sizes. Also designs are specific according to the targeted age.

WHO MAKES THEM AND WHERE?
Original Buff S.A. made the first Buff® headwear in 1992, thus creating a new textile product category: the seam-free multifunctional headwear. Today, more than 3 million units are made every year in a new factory of 8.000 sq. meters, which the company owns near Barcelona. A dedicated team of 80+ people produce products from start to finish, including design stage to manufacturing and shipping.

WHERE CAN I FIND BUFF® PRODUCTS?
Buff® products are available in more than 60 countries, covering five continents and are available in specialty retailers and e-tailers like outdoor, ski, sporting goods, bicycle, motorcycle, and fitness centres.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO CUSTOMIZE BUFF® HEADWEAR?
Yes, of course. Apart from our retail stock Buff® collection, Original Buff, S.A. also designs and manufactures custom Buff® imprinted with company logos, associations, clubs, and events. Please ask for our Custom Buff® catalogue if you are interested.

WHAT DEGREE OF SUN PROTECTION CAN I EXPECT FROM BUFF® HEADWEAR?
According to the tests made, most of our designs offer a sun protection degree of UPF 5-10. Buff® used as a cap (double-layer fabric) offers UPF 50 sun protection. Our High UV version (please, see Summer Collection) blocks more than 95% of UV rays.

WHY OTHER BRANDS ARE GENERALLY CHEAPER?
There are many reasons. Generally, the materials type competitors use are less expensive and are of lower quality, even though they claim to use microfibers. Most competitors also do not invest in R & D, design or marketing department dedicated specifically in this category so they have lower costs. We are completely confident that consumers recognize our superior quality and the added value that Buff® products provide.

HOW DO I KNOW I BOUGHT AN ORIGINAL BUFF® PRODUCT?
Just look for our Buff® logo. All Buff® products always have a Buff® logo printed or sewn on the textile. At retail shops, it is sold with a unique header packaging where the logo is very visible.
