    Fabulous protection - 8/28/2014

    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.

    very impressed - 8/11/2014

    Product shipped fast and arrived before predicted date the material is very soft and the detail is outstanding looks just like the picture and really does keep you cool. Water droplets roll right off and it dries very fast. I have multiple fishing buffs and this one is my favorite by far. For sure buying more from Orvis, you won't regret it. Highly recommended.

    Black flies, buzzing female mosquitoes, bright sun on dappled water, or just hiding from your spouse while bending a rod, this is the configurable answer. Just don't wear it into the bank.

    Wicked Awesome! - 8/1/2014

    I upgraded to an original Buff from a smaller/shorter neck gaiter. To have the Vermont logo on it makes this purchase one of my best finds! Fishing here in CO the Buff does what the other reviews report; it keeps the bugs off my neck/face/ears and protects me from the sun. You won't be disappointed. Especially if you're from Vermont!

    The UV Buff greatly extended my fishing time. I was able to fish all day in the hot Florida sun in the Gulf of Mexico no sunburn, and less dehydration. Will probably purchase another so I have one in the boat and one in my tacklebox.

    Sun protection & cool! - 7/12/2014

    I've seen guys with buff neck gators on before however always thought they would make you hot. Not true, this not only keeps you cooler in hot sun (go figure, standing in the middle of the San Juan River) and provides sun protection for your face. Because of this I now use a lot less sun screen because the Buff covers my ears and most of my face. Great equipment.

    simple cheap effective - 7/10/2014
    By: from Philadelphia, pa

    It looks great, wears comfortably (even above 90 degrees) and keeps you cool. No bugbites, no nasty sunburn on the back of my neck, and all cheaper than most in this fad. Cant beat it.
