We love the versatility of the Buff sold at REI. It can be used as a hat, a scarf, a ponytail holder, and even to protect against sun and wind. Depending the the fabric, it’s wicks dry quickly and provides UV protection. The Buffs made of wool add more warmth for winter outdoor activities.

As we mentioned, these Buffs are awesome, but you’re paying $20-$30 for a small sleeve of fabric. Kelly over at Give It Grace agrees, and she shares how to custom sew your Buff. The sew method is easy and the bonus is you get to select your own fabric.
