The DofE multifunction headwear by BUFF® goes on a Gold expedition

Two open Gold groups recently set out on their expedition to the epic Scottish Highlands and debuted the new expedition accessory – the DofE multifunction headwear by BUFF®.

First of all you might be wondering, what is a BUFF®?

A BUFF® is a type of headwear or neckwear that can be worn in a number of different ways to provide a high level of comfort, protection and style during outdoor and physical activities.

Micro-fibre BUFF®’s are designed to keep you warm in the cold, and cool when it’s hot.

The profits of the DofE multifunction headwear by BUFF® goes to the DofE charity.

Here’s what the Gold group said about their time in the highlands with their BUFF®’s!

“As I looked around at my teammates, everyone was wearing their BUFF®’s – using them as they pleased, be it as a headband, ear warmer or a scarf. While they’re not going to appear at New York Fashion week any time soon, the BUFF®’s proved to be an essential piece of DofE kit.

Firstly, they were excellent protection against the DofE participants worst nightmare: the midgie. By using the BUFF®’s as a mask, we could brave a journey out of the safety of our tents and cook our dinner, rather than us being dinner for the midgies.

They also proved their use in camp at night. Some people used them while they slept, covering their eyes as if it was an eye mask to keep out the light, or even to keep their heads from freezing.

During the day we all used them in different ways – to tie up our hair and warm our heads. We even used our BUFF®’s to stop us from burning our hands when we accidentally heated up our pot handle and had to take it off the Trangia.

You may laugh at those stupid teenagers who haven’t washed for four days, who are covered in mud and wearing BUFF®’s. However it is us who are really laughing, since not only have we completed our Gold DofE, the BUFF®’s  are also cooler than you’ll ever be.

They are comfortable, lightweight, well made and amazingly useful, in even the most unexpected situations.”

Thank you to our participants for wearing and showing their DofE multifunction headwear by BUFF® experience!

And another thing…

The BUFF®’s are not just a good item to have for an expedition; they also serve many purposes in everyday life.

“The DofE multifunction headwear by BUFF® was really useful. Small and light, it is ideal for DofE.

I used it recently when the heating broke in my tractor. It helped keep my head warm and enabled me to concentrate while hedge cutting.”
