Here at the Project X Kit Store, we pride ourselves on only stocking brands that we have personally tried and tested on our own adventures – ensuring you a great quality product. And Buff is no exception – in fact, you’ll find the team wearing Buff on a regular basis, in the office and outdoors alike!

Buff is the original multifunctional headwear, designed by a keen off-road motorcyclist, Juan, in Spain. Who found the need to have a multifunctional garment for any conditions and whatever your adventure may through at you. Developing his designs, Juan eventually found a high-performance microfibre that was breathable, moisture wicking and wind resistant.

The Technology

Fabrics

The technical features Buff uses are what makes these products so great. The fabrics used in Buff is what makes these neckwarmers different from any others on the market. Depending on where you will be using your Buff depends on what fabric/range is best for you. Here is a breakdown of the main fabrics used:

  • MICROFIBRE – a synthetic fibre made of polyester and weaved to create a durable fabric with great absorption and thermal properties.

  • POLAR FLEECE –  this fabric has been created to give you a lightweight, breathable and fast drying polar fleece section to the Buff, to give you thermoregulation properties.

  • MERINO WOOL – 100% natural and sustainable fabric made with fine and soft non-itchy wool. The fabric is breathable, draws sweat away from the skin and have excellent thermoregulation properties.

Product Features

  • COMFORT SEAMS TECHNOLOGY – for increased comfort and performance, the seams have been created to ensure you have the best fit, along with preventing skin itchiness or irritation.

  • POLYGIENE – a highly effective antimicrobial technology that uses natural silver salt in low concentrations, for odour control and fresh comfort.

  • MOISTURE MANAGEMENT – wicks sweat and moisture away from the skin, to keep your body temperature stable and provides comfort.
  • MULTIFUNCTIONAL – these Buffs can be worn in multiple ways, from a hat or scarf to a bandana or sweatband.
  • 4 WAY STRETCH – a new technology to give the fabric a superior elasticity and improved comfort.
  • RECYCLED – designed to be more sustainable. The polyester microfibre fabric has been created using recycled clear plastic bottles.
  • UV PROTECTION (UPF50) – a high level of protection against hazards caused by ultraviolet radiation from the sun.
  • THERMAL INSULATION – a big reduction of heat transfer between the human body and the environment. This effect maintains your body heat stable.

Sizing

  • ADULT SIZE – head diameter: 53-62cm – fits most adults.
  • SLIM FIT SIZE – head diameter: 50-55cm – fits tighter than the normal size, specifically designed for an optimal fit for a smaller neck.
  • JUNIOR – head diameter: 50-55cm – designed to fit most children age 4 to 12 years.

Would Project X Recommend Buff?

Of course! Buff is by far one of our favourite brands. All of the team (and their families!) wear them for various activities along with every day! We even wear them inside the office (Project X HQ gets pretty chilly in the winter!) Everyone can find a design or pattern they love, making them individual to you. They are a simple and no-fuss accessory that our team, just wouldn’t be able to live without! Whenever you’ve got your buff on you, you are always prepared – whether you make your way into a dust storm, the temperature suddenly drops or you need a sweatband whilst training.
