Buff Marine Birds - Review

Buff Marine Birds - Review


It was snowing the other afternoon as I walked to pick my daughter up from school, and there I was wrapped in my Berghaus jacket, North Ridge hat, and my brand new Buff (a stunning Marine Birds one - see pic below) feeling cosy and warm, my breath warming the inside of the tight clinging fabric, the cold wind not even touching my skin (except around my eyes and my hands, I really need to get some decent gloves), and a though crossed my mind, how many items of clothing can be worn all year round?

Ok it seems an odd question, but I was recently sent a really cool Buff by the guys at Kitshack, part of their new AW 16/17 range - Buff Marine Birds - and it is one of the few items that serves a purpose in the biting cold of winter, like that day, or the heat of summer. 

No seriously, the windproof qualities were keeping the cold off my face like and decent scarf, but I often have a Buff, or similar, on me in the height of summer, they are great worn on the wrist to mop up a bit of sweat, or in a pinch thrown on your head as a bandanna or hat to save you from over exposure to the sun. PLEASE NOTE: I am NOT allowed to wear one as a bandanna in the company of Zoe!

Thoughts


For me the best part of this Buff is the design, I mean the versatility is great and as a practical item it's second to none, but the marine birds design of this, in muted colours is right up this birders alley, with Gannets, Cormorants, Puffin and Storm Pertrel hanging out by a rocky shore it looks great.

The great thing about the Buff is it is really comfortable to wear, the lack of seams means nothing to rub or cause irritation, they are tight enough to cling when needed but don't feel like they are strangling you when worn as a neckerchief, always seem well made and are a stylish choice for any outdoors type person, like me.

Lets be honest, you can't beat an item of clothing that has so many uses (13 according to the product description, although I have little use for a scrunchy, just need to keep my daughter away from it), and can be used at so many times of the year.

  1. I can't live without my buff! When I first picked one up I thought it'd be gimmicky - but it's such a versatile piece of equipment.
