When the sun's beating down during long days outdoors, the Buff UVX Balaclava Buff protects your skin while keeping you cool. The buff can be worn four different ways: as a full coverage balaclava, hood, sun guard over your neck and ears, or neck gaiter to protect vulnerable areas from sunburn while efficiently wicking perspiration to keep you from overheating. The buff's lightweight CoolMax Extreme fabric is a moisture managing workhorse, and blocks out 95% of harmful UV rays. A Polygiene antimicrobial treatment prevents the growth of odor causing bacteria so you're not stuck wallowing in your own stink. When you're wearing the buff as a balaclava over your face, built in breathing holes give you access to fresh air, and keep your sunglasses from fogging up. However you choose to wear the buff, minimal flat lock seams prevent hot spots or chafing for enhanced comfort.
