Buff Headwear & Face Wraps for Winter & Summer Sport

Charged with a passion for motorcycles, founder Joan Rojas sought to find a solution to keep his neck and head protected on his cross-country rides. Plucking from his knowledge of tubular knitting, he churned out the first BUFF Headwear product, focusing on supreme craftsmanship, and tested it as he traveled the length of the Pyrenees. BUFF, short for bufanda, which means scarf in Spanish, was born.


Partnering with superior manufacturers of raw materials, over the past 25 years, BUFF has premiered and innovated the tubular headwear category. Their company-owned factory, which is located downstairs of their headquarters in Spain, allows them to ensure that, start to finish, excellence is built into every product. Today, just as then, BUFF Headwear is a product built on this ethos of quality; it's in the marrow of their company.  Technology has progressed and the industry of textiles has moved into a new age, and they have evolved with it. While BUFF incorporate a state-of-the-art fabric technologies, like COOLMAX and Polygeine, into their products, they stick to their heritage of quality and reliability. It's these time-tested qualities that athletes and outdoor enthusiasts from an array of sports depend on, and why BUFF is the original multifunctional headwear.


We invite you to become part of the BUFF revolution. See for yourself why BUFF Headwear is the perfect accessory for any outdoor activity.

 Questions & Tips

Q: What does "Semi-Seamless" mean?

Most of our semi-seamless products combine a section that is seamless with a section that has been sewn to another type of fabric, like fleece or GORE Windstopper in our cold-weather product models. The BUFF Merino Wool Multifunctional Headwear is semi-seamless because it does not have a vertical seam, rather its sewn on the top and bottom to prevent unraveling. The BUFF Headband is also semi-seamless because it has a double layer of CoolNet UV+ fabric sewn together on the inside of the headband.

Q: What is Gore Windstopper?

GORE Windstopper is a high-performance technology that is completely windproof, water resistant, and delivers maximum breathability. BUFF Windproof products are constructed with GORE Windstopper to keep you comfortable in cold and windy weather conditions.

Insect Shield technology is integrated into several of our BUFF Headwear products and repels many biting insects, including: mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges (no-see-ums).
