Serious Sun Protection
Versatile, functional BUFF® Spring Summer 2018 Collection available now
Santa Rosa, CA (March 28, 2018) – Springtime delivers a lot of our favorite activities, most of them occurring outside where sun rays enliven the event. Of course, it’s easy to forget “the other side” of the outdoor experience: UV rays aren’t always so kind to the skin. Just as the intensity of the sun’s heat can quickly sap your energy.
But for those who’ve discovered BUFF® and its multifunctional headwear and other technical fabric offerings, spring and summer remain the active, carefree seasons they’ve always meant to be.
Buff, Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of BUFF®, creators of versatile performance headwear for all-season outdoor enthusiasts recently announced the launch of the Spring/Summer 2018 collection—a brand new collection of lightweight skin-protective line of Gloves, expanded Cap offering, as well as revamped UV Arm Sleeves and Headwear embellished in stunning, statement-making patterns.
Sporting the classic, high-profile trucker style, vibrant graphics and advanced BUFF® performance, the Trucker Cap (MSRP: $28) and 10-4 Snapback Cap (MSRP: $25) now feature several new angler-centric styles from renowned contemporary artist, Derek DeYoung. New eye-catching Pelagic Camo patterns conceal your moves from the biggest fish, and are available for “mix-and-match” outfitting with corresponding-pattern Arm Sleeves, Gloves and UV Multifunctional Headwear.
Absolutely the “coolest,” most comfortable fishing / outdoor hang-out caps you’ll ever own, both the BUFF® Trucker Cap and 10-4 Snapback Cap feature a breathable, 100-percent polyester front panel that dries fast, wicks moisture and protects against glare. A polyester mesh back delivers more ventilation, while a low-profile sweatband wicks interior moisture and keeps perspiration out of your eyes. The caps’ bills are even coated with a stain guard finish to repel fish slime.
Few artists capture the saltwater experience like legendary angling artist Guy Harvey, who’s lively aquatic renderings now grace BUFF® UV Multifunctional Headwear in seven resplendent patterns. The Guy Harvey series (MSRP: $25) delivers all the functionality of the Original multifunctional headwear, then adds built-in sun protection that blocks up to 95-percent of harmful UV rays. Advanced COOLMAX® PRO fabric wicks moisture and dries fast, while Polygiene® treatment resists odors.
Redefining the concept of a super-functional fishing / outdoor activity glove, BUFF®’s new glove collection feels like nothing you’ve put on your hands before.
The feather-light Solar Gloves (MSRP: $20) feature UPF 40+ sun protection in a breathable, quick-drying fabric. A partial silicone palm enhances gripability; half-finger length design provides protection while leaving fingertips free to tie knots. Providing ¾-length finger protection, BUFF Aqua Gloves (MSRP: $29) offer all-over silicone grips to assure you’ll keep solid hold of your fishing rod at all times. A double layer of fabric between index finger and thumb maximizes durability and wear. Offering advanced grip technology, new Eclipse Gloves (MSRP: $35) are also enhanced with anti-microbial, odor-preventing fabric. For entire-hand coverage, Fullflex Gloves (MSRP: $35) keep you on the water, even in cooler conditions, providing full 50+ UPF sun protection. The definitive fishing glove, the Elite (MSRP: $45) provides ¾-length finger protection and an abrasion-resistant film in high-wear areas to reduce blisters and cuts while improving grip. Quick-drying, anti-microbial and UPF 50+, the Elite Gloves are crafted with one-of-a-kind engineering for unparalleled comfort, grip and dexterity.
