Custom Buff – My Highlight of the Week
Ok, it’s normal that I’m excited when buying new hiking gear and I wouldn’t even find it worth mentioning, but this is one is so *eeek*: I got my favourite climbing moment printed on a buff.
Custom Buff with your Picture on
One day when I browsed the internet and looked for something completely different I came across Bags of Love. They do photo gifts (cushions, blankets, canvases etc), but I wondered if they have sports/hiking equipment as well. And *eeek* they had. I wanted something with my favourite hiking/climbing moment on and found the buff. So I uploaded the picture which we took at the summit of Toubkal (4167m – North Africa’s highest mountain) onto their design platform and got it printed. Super easy. I could choose different pictures for the front and back of the buff, so I got something neutral on the back (a picture of a surface of snow) for when I use the buff as a head band. So basically I got a 2-1 design.

What is a Buff?
Now, a buff is something that probably every other hiker has. It’s a piece of tube fabric and it’s super practical. You can wear it as a scarf, head band, cap, wrist band, face mask and probably 50 other ways. Ideal for hikers in any situation and weather condition it’s incredible versatile. I do have the one or other at home because it’s a really nice fashion accessory (for hikers) as well, but I was always looking for something more special.
