Who would have thought something so simple would make life on the water so much better. I have always been reluctant to give one of these a try until I went on a redfish trip in Louisiana. Pull this over your face when jetting out to spots to prevent wind lash, getting sunburns, and to keep your face warmer when it's cold outside. The light material is super breathable and doesn't restrict breathing at all. I'm even using it to prevent mosquito bites in particularly buggy trout rivers and use it when I'm fishing the surf. Wonderful product!

I've spent days on the flats and pounding river banks on local waters without ever getting my face/neck burnt. These are great for sun protection and some can even be stylish, if that's your thing. Very lightweight. Only problem I've ever experienced is fogging up sunglasses when pulled up too high. Still, the benefits are much greater than the one negative.

With a dermatologist as my wife, I hear less about sun damage after purchasing and using this product.

With my camo Buff, I'm the coolest and most comfortable guy on the rugged waters off Cape Cod. Tuna, striped bass, big blues and friends can't wait to get to my boat!
This is a quality product, no regrets. -
Delivers what it says it will. It keeps sun and bugs off your face. I've even started wearing it while sleeping during cooler weather camping
Perfect for all seasons -

Really have enjoyed using my UV Buff from Orvis. As someone with fair skin I use it all the time to prevent sun damage. It also does a great job keeping you warm during the fall into winter. I even use it running or hiking.
An Indispensable Item -

I wear my buff every time I'm on the water. From providing a bit of warmth when wrapped around my neck in the pre-dawn hours to covering my face, ears and neck when the sun is up - this is now one item I never leave behind. Its very light and sized to cover everything. I also was surprised how cool it is when worn over my face and head. And I really like the pattern on my Steelhead buff.
Fabulous protection -
The Buff protective neck/headwear was truly a lifesaver on a recent flyfishing trip in the Caribbean. We waded for bonefish all day every day for a week in flat sandy bottom water. With my Buff and a hat I was totally comfortable and didn't fry at all. I had recently had some skin surgery and was cautioned not to be in the sun at all. Thank you for this terrific product--it totally saved my trip and allowed me to catch a lot of beautiful bonefish! I knew I was on the right track when I met our guide and to my surprise he was wearing one too! They are just terrific.
