Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthwestIndyMike This thing actually works!!
Took this on a weekend trip to Starved Rock Park in Illinois. The park has been inundated with rain this summer and insects are everywhere. Slipped the product around my neck and suddenly, no insects. Actually, they were still there, just not getting as close and definitely no bites. Made my photo shoot much better. Buying another since when my wife saw what was happening, or not happening, she 'stole' the Buff from me. Politely of course. But she is much more sensitive to mosquito bites than me so it's OK. The Buff is small, will fit anywhere, protects from UV and should offer some cool weather protection. That I don't know yet since the weekend was hot and humid. Now, if they can just make one I can cover my entire body with.

I am a female of normal build. I found that using this insect shield around my neck was too tight and did not protect my face from gnats. It was too bulky for a headband and I didn't care for it as a beanie type head covering.

Fit is a little big.. I must have a small neck. Doesn't stay up on neck. Falls down, Insect repellant works good. Very little smell. Blocks sun great.

It works. Especially in the early am when insects are alive by the waters I fish...Larry

This is very soft, absorbent, and probably longer (wider) than it needs to be: I may cut it in half and see if I can get 2. I wear it around my head / neck when working in my upstate SC damp, woodsy yard.
I really like this -- It works well at keeping mosquitoes, etc., off me - they come around but do not land or bite. It is easily washable, does not irritate my skin, and is as effective and user friendly as I hoped it would be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WestTexasKat Very comfortable & works great!
I bought the green colored Buff insect shield and it works great in my garden, cutting firewood and working in the yard. I bought it for the beginning of deer hunting season in November when the mosquitoes are still out and bad here in Texas. Can't wait to use it for that, but so far it has worked well to repel insects outside. I have several Buffs and really like all of them, but this is the first one I have bought to try and repel insects. So far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanian Nice find!
I was happy to find this item, which so far, I've only used while gardening. It's soft, odorless, and comfortable (a little warm wrapped around my neck while working in the sun) and great not having gnats and mosquitoes flying in my face. No sunburned neck, either. Cool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlaskanTrip Best purchase for Alaskan Fly Fishing Trip
Best piece of equipment on a recent Alaskan fishing trip; excellent protection from mosquitoes plus warmth under a hat. The Buff will be the first thing I grab for a fishing excursion!

Fits a size medium man just fine and does what it says. For the recent three weeks it has repelled bugs as hoped.
