    A friend of mine recently moved to China to live with his 6' tall model girlfriend. I've seen her on the other end of his video phone chats, and she really is a knockout, so I can't blame him too much.

    Well, he went straight home to China from work, without going through the states first.

    He and I both wear bandanas on our heads, under our hard hats, mostly to keep sweat from running into our eyes.

    Well, he went looking for bandanas in China (where they're all made these days), and he couldn't find one to save his life.

    He then happened upon "Buffs", at some outdoor specialty shop.

    So he bought two of them.

    When we arrived back in the sandbox, I gave him three of my bandanas, and he gave me one of his Buffs.

    I will definitely be ordering more of these. They're really versatile, effective, and comfortable. I haven't worn a bandana since I got this thing.

    Check 'em out: http://www.buffwear.com

    Check out the video. I love this thing.

    I could wear one like the girl on the website does. Interesting because I use a golf-visor for certain things...this would work better (for certain things)...especially the UV ones and the "doggie" ones with the reflector.

    I'll be getting four of the UV/insect repellent ones. The one I have is just a plain one. Not exactly my style, it's blue with an Indian elephant pattern, but it doesn't look much different from a bandana on me.

    Thanks CJ. I've been looking for something to cover my head better than a cap.

    They have been wearing those on CBS Survivor since episode 1, they do seem versatile

    My wife watches that show, and I've seen them, but I didn't know they were Buffs.

    They are quite cool. Yesterday I did the deal where I had my head and face covered. Lotta dust kicked up yesterday by a dozer that we had doing some dirt work for our camp.

    Watch it CJ. You're skirting pretty close to losing your Texas man card. Would Gus and Capt. Call wear a Buff? Would Jim Bowie and Davie Crockett or Juan Seguin wear a Buff? Would Tom Landry wear a Buff?
    I think not. As long as I can buy a cotton bandanna at a Toot 'n Totum in Amarillo or a Stop and Go in Houston...I'll stick to what cowboys and real Texans have been wearing for generations :cowboy:

    I get ya', Bill, but there's only one important question here. Would Chad Landry wear a buff? I reckon so.

    I've had one for about 5 years that I wear for fishing when its cold out or when I'm on my bike. It works good to keep the cold air off your face when driving. A lot of guys wear them on their face in the summer to keep the sun off but I just can't get used to doing that.

    he's wearing a practical multi-functional cloth tool.

    you're worried about what other men choose to wear.

    i don't think cj is the one in danger of loosing his man card here. :whistling:

    Come on, now. Bill had a legitimate concern. I just leave my man card in my desk drawer, though, so if they want it, they can have it. ;)

    I hear ya', man, but any of those pics would violate the TOS of this site.

    I ain't jokin', and they're quite a bit more than "creampuff" pics. :smoking:

    Simple and yet genius. Maybe not worth $20 in terms of materials used, but definitely worth it in terms of utility.

    I had a similar "conversion" when I learned how versatile the Japanese were with their "furoshiki". I stopped carrying around boxes and bags and just kept a square meter of fabric folded up into a tiny square in my pocket.

    Both are awesome examples of how with the right composition, size, and technique a simple piece of fabric can become a "Swiss Army Cloth".

    Well, to be fair, you ARE Chad ******* Landry. If you started wearing sparkly pink toenail polish, Marines and cowboys everywhere would have the automatic clearance to start scheduling pedicure appointments without other men questioning their manliness just because you did it first.

    There are manly men, and then there are men who are man enough to set the man-standard. You and the Duke, brother.

    Looks pretty cool, and potentially worth $20, for sure. Might have to pick one up!

    I spent all of last year working in Houston and I can proudly say that I have amassed a very nice collection of hats and boots.
