They've accompanied me from Ten Tors as a teenager, to the summit of Kilimanjaro!
For those who don't know, a Buff is a tube scarf, but it is so much more than just a scarf. It can also be worn as a neck warmer, a face mask, a beanie, a balaclava, a headband to keep hair off your face, a wristband, a hood, a sunguard, a bandana, a sahariane, a head scarf or even a scrunchie!
A very versatile bit of kit, I think you'll agree?!
In keeping with my plans of heading to Nepal (when I eventually save up enough money) I chose the National Geographic Himalaian Multi Buff.
Partly because if ever a Buff could inspire adventure, it would be this one, but also because I prefer the thinner Buffs as I don't like feeling too hot around my neck when walking.
The detailing on this Buff is incredible as well, there's been a lot of care and thought put in to this design.
As I said, if any Buff can inspire me to save my money and head out to the Himalayas, this will be it!
As I said, I'm a sucker for good kit that's lightweight but also warm, and this delivers on all accounts!
Even on a very windswept day in the New Forest!
I also recommend you set aside a few hours.
Do you have a Buff, would you buy one? What pattern would you go for?
