As a general rule, it’s always good to have extra layers of clothing both available and worn when visiting colder regions. Some recommend the same for warm or sun-exposed regions, as the more skin you cover up, the more you can protect, and the cooler you’ll be.
The problem, however, is that most clothing items you would wear in the cold, aren’t ideal for warm or hot regions. You end up having to choose varying gear depending on the climate, temperature, condition, and location of the place you’re visiting. Wouldn’t it be so much more convenient if you could ditch some of that extra gear cluttering up your pack or luggage, and instead rely on one or two multi-purpose items in their place?
With the Buff Polar Multi-Functional Headwear and Scarf, you can bring and use it just about anywhere. It’s great in the cold as a scarf or makeshift balaclava, but it’s just as great in the heat as protective headwear and cool cover. It’s comprised of both fleece and microfiber, which Buff claims give the resulting headgear unique properties. It can dry quickly, but it also offers ample thermal protection in colder climates and temperatures.
It also comes in a one-size-fits-all form, in a wide variety of colors and styles. You can buy multiple Polar pieces if you want something to match all your styles and outfits. Or, you can stick with one, that will remain fresh and odor free thanks to active outdoor control support. It is machine washable so that you can toss it in with the rest of your clothes at any time.
At first glance, it looks like nothing more than an oversized tube sock. But Buff has an incredibly detailed and informative video that shows all the different ways you can use the headwear, including to cover your face, neck, eyes, and mouth. There are so many ways to use the Polar; it’s a must-carry for any traveler.
