Been thinking about my Crimbo wish list (yes I know its not even Bonfire night yet - but I'm still a little kid at heart and once the nights start drawing in....)
Anyway back to the point. Been considering asking that nice Saint Nick for one of them there Polartech Buff type thingies - you know the ones that seem to act as a hat/scarf/Balaclava all in one.
I,ve only ever used good old fashioned Polar tech hats before and wanted to know from those with the experience of the buff
1. Are they any good
2. Will it be sufficient to replace a hat in winter in the Lakes
3. Pros and cons.

1. Yes. I got one for my wife (good swop eh!) and she's happy with it. I have 2 of the ordinary Buffs myself and they're fine for me.
2. Only if it's dry. You'll still need something waterproof if it rains.
3. Pro's - Multifunctional, lightweight. Cons - See 2.

Good luck.
