Multifunctional cycle touring headwear | 100% natural Merino.
A Buff is one of those items of cycle touring kit that should be on every travelling cyclist’s packing list. Designed for both warm and cool cycling conditions, and to be worn in a number of configurations, wearing a Buff can be the key to pedalling on in comfort.
In the cool, the Merino Wool Buff keeps you warm and protected from the wind, and then when the conditions become warmer, the merino wicks moisture away to keep you cool. The beauty of the Merino Wool Buff over the Original Buff is that the Merino properties keep it odour-free and suitable to wear for longer on the road.
Use the Merino Wool Buff as a:
- face mask
Lightweight, breathable, soft, and odour-free with a seamless construction, the Merino Wool Buff is super comfortable to wear on the bike. And, of course, it can be used as much off the bike whilst setting up camp, brewing a hot drink, or for other pursuits.
Sizing: 66cm x 24.5cm (one size fits all)
Material: 100% Merino Wool

Buff®, is the original multifunctional headwear. Once upon a time there was a keen off-road trials motorcyclist from Spain, who realised there was a need for a multifunctional garment that could be worn on and around his head while out riding in any and all conditions. Having worked in the textile industry for over 25 years manufacturing knitted collars and cuffs for the most popular football shirt brands in Europe, Juan Rojas set about creating a functional garment that could be worn in all manner of ways, replacing the need for separate items of head and neck wear.
Experimenting with different designs and processes, Juan eventually found a high performance microfibre that was breathable, moisture wicking and wind resistant. Juan then set about designing a proprietary knitting process that could manufacture his product in such a way as to ensure enduring comfort and durability. This manufacturing process, which takes place on a specially developed tubular loom, achieves a unique seamless construction resulting in a particularly comfortable garment that is extremely durable. The use of a sublimation printing process to transfer designs onto the product also ensures that the material retains its soft feel without the colours fading when either exposed to the elements or during cleaning. Juan called his product Buff® as a derivation of the Spanish word ‘bufanda’ meaning scarf.
