Buff UVX Mask

Make & Model

Brand:
Buff
Model:
UVX Mask
MSRP ($):
35.00

The Buff "UVX Mask" has all the benefits of the original Buff with added protection. The UVX Mask flares out to protect the area of your skin exposed by the opening of your shirt. It is a more comprehensive protection for the long days on the water.

I got one of these from a friend. I have used the original buff for years now. This one is a little different. It has vent holes for your mouth and nose and is a little longer in the front and back. I use this one mostly in the winter months. It does a good job of cutting the wind. I like that I can tuck inside my shirt to stay warm.

Buff UVX

I have gone to no sunscreen and covering up here in south GA. The extended coverage of the UVX Buff really helps in this regard. The ability to pull it up on your head is also a big plus. The holes in the mouth area help a bit with fogging of sunglasses (doesn't totally rid the fogging but does help). It is a great buff and do yourself a favor and check out the Buff UVX.

In the Buff

I really like the buffs so much I also bought the gloves. They are not hot. And living on the Texas coast the last thing I want is to wear something that makes me even hotter. It does what it says. The only thing I don't care for is that when I cover my nose my sunglasses fog up. So I rate these at a 4.5.

One of the best Buffs

Not just your ordinary piece of fabric that fishermen wear around their necks, the UVX mask is purpose built for all around protection. The biggest advantage to the UVX mask is the ability to tuck it under your shirt. If your wearing a collared shirt, no big deal, but I usually wear a moisture wicking long/short sleeve and I would routinely get sun burn on my neck where my previous Buff failed to cover. Another added feature is the breath holes that don't fog your sun glasses up as much. It doesn't completely stop it, but the holes are sure better than just a solid piece of fabric. Lastly, the UVX is super soft and has extra material that clings to the back of your head for the perfect fit. Little touches, but these added features put the Buff UVX Mask above all others. If you are fair skinned and don't play nice with the sun like me, the Buff UVX Mask is a perfect option for all day comfort and sun protection for fellow kayak anglers.
