Buff headgear is a company formed in 2002, that prides itself in creating multifunctional headgear worn by outdoor enthusiasts including all contestants of CBS's survivor show. Buff pieces aren't hats, scarves or headbands, they're stretchy, long lasting products that you can use to protect and cover your head or neck or wrists, constantly twisting and reconfiguring the piece of fabric to meet your needs. While the company claims that your piece of Buff headwear might potentially outlast you, you should wash it from time to time.
