My local book outlet "The Works" has buffs for 99p. They seem pretty good.

Genuine Buffs or knock-offs?

My Wife has just gone to Waitrose, directly opposite The Works in Andover.  Text message sent.

Even The Works cleared out of Swindon.
Never tell me the odds.

There appear to be Buff clones in the local Aldi.  Mostly in the sort of styles best suited to colourblind snowboarders, but there you go...
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Mrs W got me a couple of the 99p 'Works buffs' (actually called 'Magic Headwear') while she was shopping with MiL today.

They are cheap copies - lighter weight than my genuine buff, but OK for 99p.

The best ones I have are Lidl 'Polar' ones with an extra microfleece section. They were £1.69 about 3 years ago and are still in frequent use.  :thumbsup:

If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is...

I use the genuine polar buffs and they are great.

But I also found some stretch fleece material in a local shop in metre lengths and made my own up. They worked out a lot cheaper and are just as good.

I then did a search on e bay for "Neck Warm Face Mask Ski Snowboard Cold Sport Neoprene" and ended up buying this mask from china and it is excellent and costs almost nothing.

The fleece comes right around the back and covers your ears to keep them warm. I wear glasses and was worried about fogging but when you are riding it does not happen. Your face stays much warmer.
