Joe's Favorites

The 3 pieces I use most frequently are: Original BUFF: It's a classic for a reason. For me it's the most versatile piece, that I use year round in all kinds of weather for all activities. I wear it in a variety of ways, as a headband, hat, balaclava, under my ski or bike helmet, running, climbing. It's one of the few essential pieces of gear that I always have with me. Merino Wool BUFF: A warmer, longer and more plush option for cold winter outings. I love wool and the merino is soft and very comfortable against the skin. The Merino Wool BUFF is also a great travel piece for casual wear. It dries quickly and never smells! UV Headband: A more minimal piece for hot summer days. This is typically what I use for racing and it fits great under a headlamp for added comfort on night runs. - Joe Grant
