  1. Which buff is 100% polartec fleece from top to bottom and fits tightly without a drawstring? I don’t want the one that has a top half the elastic stuff and a bottom half of fleece. It doesn’t keep me warm enough. I need the one that has fleece all the way through and the elastic material on the outside…reversible I guess. Need it to fit tight so cold air doesn’t get in while hunting. I lost my old one. It rocked!!!

    1. Hi Toby,

      You are looking for the BUFF® Reversible Polar. We loved it too. Yet it wasn’t popular in sales so it dropped out of the Australian Range.
      What I would recommend is to take 2 BUFF® Lightweight Merino instead. That’s our goto solution for very cold conditions. Or have a look at the BUFF® Windproof. Not as flexible as 2 Merino yet super warm.

      Hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
