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

    My Buff is best bang for the buck in the universe. - 10/3/2014

    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. - 9/29/2014

    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

    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.

    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 - 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.
