Rated 5 out of 5 by studio1 Great Head Gear
This short Buff is light weight but surprisingly warm. It doesn't have the versatility of the longer Buff, but it is very attractive and comfortable to wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PosieJosie Light weight and colorful
I love the colors and the soft, light weight feel of this. I wore it for a hike last weekend when the temps dipped. It was very comfortable to have around my neck and added just a little protection from the wind. I look forward to using this for x-country skiing and when I am skiing on the mountain this spring.
I will not that I did not pay attention to this product being a half Buff. Just be prepared that is not a full one.

I love the Half-buffs! I've been looking for a good headband to keep my hair away from my face during dance class because all my drugstore-headbands need constant readjustment. I had these recommended to me by a friend and I'm so happy that I tried these. At first glance I thought it looked too big and I was afraid that they won't stay on my head but surprisingly they stay put through 2 hours of class! They are easy to wash and appear to be long lasting, though I've only owned them for about 3 months (but I do wear them everyday to class and washed them multiple times -- they're all still in great shape). My only wish is that LLBean carry more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mglucy good UV protection
I own many UV buff headwear, both half & regular length.
All have UV protection some with insect shield
I'm very pleased with them.
I use the half buff under my bike helmet to keep my head cool and protected from the sun.
I've used the regular length with insect shield around my neck when I ride and also when I go geo caching, keeps all kinds of bugs away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nightgale Not for me
These BUFF headbands and wraps just don't work. They slip, they slide, they fall off, they creep backward, they stick up, they are too tight or too loose. This goes for all 3 styles of Buff.
Once I realized these were useless as a headband or hairband (my main needs) I experimented with wearing 2 for extra stretch, with bobby pins and clips, and hair ties, so the BUFF did not have to do all the work. It still is off my head in an hour. This with normal activity, not athletic.
Also, aside from their very pretty patterns, I fail to see the difference between BUFF and a 2 buck headband from the drug store.
Maybe it's me, my head possibly is overly large. My hair excessively slippery. My ears abnormally low. Really, I have no idea. For me personally, these BUFF's just don't feel comfortable or stay on. Wish it were otherwise.

I really like my Buff Half Headwear. It is the right size as I didn't want to much extra material and it is not so tight that it would give me a headache. I have taken up road biking and needed to be able to pull my hair back but any headwear that I tried before this was uncomfortable. It's actually so comfortable that I put it on when I get home from work just to pull my hair back.

I have about 3 of these "half buffs" in various colors. I use them for most all my physical activities because they keep my curly/kinky hair in place so that when exercise is done, I can simply shake my hair into its original style -- maybe help a bit w my fingers -- and then continue to go about my day. The key is to have your hair come out of the top of the buff: pull it over your head and all the way down until it's around your neck, then maneuver the buff upwards until your curls "pineapple" out of the top. Works great for preserving your style -- no smushed hair!

I am a new Buff-devotee (apparently they are legion). I have worn cheapo headbands all my life- I have long thick straight hair which is hard to tame and keep off my face doing activities around the house and while working out. These Buffs work great- I bought a headband, a half Buff and a full size- I can imagine using them all. I also work outdoors and the UV protection is a bonus. They are a little pricey for what they are but they look like they will last a long time so money well-spent.
It is not easy to resist collecting them all- like potato chips it is hard to stop with just one! Thanks LLB for offering Buffs and for selecting the best designs available at competitive prices.

I wore it around my neck for sun protection while fishing. Felt comfortable and light while fishing all day. Not quite as bulky as full size head-wear. Although I didn't need it this trip, it could be dampened with water to keep your neck cool. I might try it for golf too.
