Buff UVX Mask
The original UV Buff created a whole new trend in responsible outdoor apparel and wearers soon found out just how important the sun blocking garments were. Spawned from the initial idea to keep outdoorsmen safe from the harmful effects of the Sun's UV rays comes the latest in Buff UV apparel: the UVX Mask. This counted garment features a more detailed shape and design that is constructed to fit around the wearers face with precision. While the original UV Buffs accomplished their goals, users sought a more tailored fit that would still cover the most essential areas. Buff's first mask style UPF sun protective garment does just that. The fit is dialed in to cover the entirety of the neck down to the mid chest from which it contours in around the neck and over the face. The back of the mask stretches up to secure the fit over the head nicely whether worn alone or with a hat.
Comfort is not an issue with this sun blocking mask. The super soft, breathable material is nice against the skin and removes hot air while allowing fresh, cooler air in. Very minimal seaming was used to ensure no points of chaffing would occur, yet the flat lock construction is very durable. The fabric dries very quickly and protects the wearer from cool gusts of wind. A long day of fishing out in the hot sun logically suggests wearing less clothing to keep cool, however, it's been proven that direct contact of UV rays with individuals skin actually raises body temperature. Go figure. Covering up will aid in keeping cool while also eliminating the chance of sunburn and reducing any potential long term effects associated with ultra violet radiation. Buff's own Polygiene Active Odor Control helps resist the build up of bacteria that is responsible for odors embedding deep into the fabric.
The Buff UVX Mask is a great alternative to the standard version for those who prefer a more tailored fit. We offer the UVX Mask in several excellent colors.
