Sweat & Chill Reduced on Highlands Cycle Tour

The horizontal image is a frontal shot of a man on a bicycle tour. It's Rian from EatSleepSurf.com. He has stopped in a field and is smiling at the camera. Rian is wearing Buff® team wear and a Australia Flag Original Buff®. It's obvious that non of the fabrics are wet or clingy. The location is in the highlands of Indonesia. It looks hot. But there are signs that there is also a chilly breeze. Rian is wearing his Original Buff® in layers. His flags on the bike are also flying. Source: EatSleepSurf.com.au Copyright: EatSleepSuf.com.au
90% Humidity, 35 Degrees Celsius and a annoying cool breeze. Moisture managed fabrics like the Buff® keep you dry & in the comfort zone (EatSleepSurf)

Cycling in highlands you find this bad combination of the sun warming you and the wind chilling you. Add sweating and the resulting chill ruins your experience.

This chill is tamed with a Buff®. Rian uses the layer method. In 2 layers the fabric acts like a wetsuit when wet. The sweat is “trapped” between the layers and creates a slight insulation.

The warmth is not like a beanie that makes you sweat when active. It’s more like the absence of chill. I just moves you from aggravated into comfortable. Often you only notice that the Buff® is wet when you pull it off.

I would now recommend the High UV Buff® for adventures in the tropics. It adds skin cancer protection to the list of features.




Rian is wearing the Australia Flag Buff®. It’s a Australia only custom design.
