This picture was taken during the 2003 Marathon Des Sables. It clearly shows that a Buff® can be used in extreme heat and sun to protect your face. Even for sports.
The participant is actually wearing the Original Buff®. At that time the High UV Buff® didn’t exist. It shows you how good the cooling ability of the Original Buff® is.
Today the best product for this situation is the High UV Buff®. The fabric is among the highest cooling in the world and comes with added UV protection.
Recommended designs for extreme heat
It may sound weird but dark colours give you the best cooling and UV protection in extreme heat. Stay away from very light colours. The Buff® shown in the image is a custom Buff® made for the event.
