Default Who uses a Buff?

I have always been the ball cap kind of guy. But I have been hearing good things about the Buffs.
Ball caps are hot when out on the boat but I have to have something to cover that spot on the back of my head where my hair has given up

I guess that a buff is better than nothing but it seems similar to a bandana which is a last resort for me. I have a few hairs that decided to go galt also and never understood the golf visor thing. I will stick with my staw hat as it has a wide brim for my face, neck and ears and allows the breaze to flow through and keep me cool.

A video showing different uses. My college roomate was issued one in the marine corp and they made great neckwarmers for duck hunting.

here's your solution,

it's a visor that makes you look not so bald.

Boy that is snazzie!

Now I just have to come up with a good reason that my beard and hair below the visor is brown and gray.

Do that make that with the bill upside down or backwards so that I can look as cool as some of these younger punks?

I use one from time to time, I really do not like wearing a hat and prefer a visor(hats make me hot). The buff is great at keeping sun off your neck area and you can pull it up and even I do not got hot with one on.

I am seeing more and more people use them now.

Also work great for talking on cell why riding in the boat, makes your cell hands free

I've never heard of those before.

I watched the original video on their site.

That guy should sell them on late night TV!

If you watch Survivor, Thursdays at 8:00pm, that's what they use. The girls use it for a tube top and/or a mini skirt also.

The mate we fished with in Mexico wore one. Ever since I have been seeing the quides on espn, etc. wearing them. I just ordered two to help with screening from the sun.
