    Excellent to know. Thanks, Perseffect.

    Also good to know, thank you! Requires higher than my current skill set, but definitely something I'll file to consider.

    Personally, I'd rather be warm and look silly than be cold and feel miserable.

    In this picture, are you both wearing two buffs, or a hat and a buff combo?

    I suppose I am asking because I am curious about how people pack. I know you're a very prepared packer so do you pack two buffs each? Or do you pack one constantly and then pack something else as-needed?

    I am delighted to report that your pic is now the preview image for this thread (in my app anyway) and not that horrendous video.

    I always have a Buff in my bag even in summer.
    Because the weather, both in the UK and Boston, was on the chilly side we were wearing a hat anyway. In this instance the Buff replaced a scarf Smilie

    Oof Boston without a scarf in winter, ouch! My face kind of hurts and my chin feels numb just thinking about it. I remember they got three feet of snow there a few years ago and I think it didn't all melt until May.

    For 9 months of the year (in England) I usually have a hat and neck warmer in my bag in a stuff sack, if I am not wearing them. In summer that changes to a sun hat and a linen scarf, and a backup hat that lives inside a Small Q-Kit with my sunglasses. I'm still on the lookout for an attractive and non-sporty folding sun hat (the one in the Q-kit is a running hat). I love accessories I can squash into small bags.

    ETA: this thread has made me realize I can fit a hat, neckwarmer, and a pair of mittens in a size 1TSS! That's a great result.
