UV Buff® Headwear
My skin doctor made me get one of these and I'm glad I did.

cancer, bad : Buff, pretty good
I have been using the UV Neck Buff for about 3 years and have found it works very well at protecting my skin from prolonged UV exposure. I typically wear it around my neck and use sunscreen on my ears and face instead of pulling it up for additional coverage.
I have found that even in extremely warm weather pulling the Buff all the way to my sunglasses results in fogging. My only gripe with the UV Buff is that at times this neck gator does not cover a small area on the back of my neck resulting in serious burns.
I wish Buff would make one end wider so that there would be a designated bottom that would cover a larger area. I cut my Buffs in half because because I do not wear them in any of the other configurations and I can fish back to back days with a clean Buff.

Purchased the item almost 2 years ago and have bought another since. No more need to be putting on sunscreen and rinsing your hands. As a full mask or as half mask it works awesome. When you fish as much as I do you need to take care of your skin as much as possible and this does the perfect job. Does a great job of blocking out sun rays and is still lightweight enough where it isn't a hinderence. Keeps you cool even on hot summer days. You won't be disappointed with this purchase. Worth every penny.

I don't leave the dock without one!
Lightweight, breathable, this is a great piece of gear for a day on the water. My boat has no shade, and this keeps the sun off the back of my neckand face. Dip it in cool water and it works as airconditioning. Also wore it on cooler trips in the Keys, and it protects from windburn.
