Petzl BUFF® Beanie & Balaclava


The Petzl BUFF® Beanie & Balaclava were new for 2018. As the UK has just seen it’s first wide-spread snow fall since March, I thought you’d be interested to read about the Petzl BUFF® Beanie & Balaclava and why they compliment the Petzl helmet range (and why they warrant the price).

They are made for Petzl by the globally renowned Original BUFF® who are based in Igualada, 60 kilometres away from Barcelona, Spain.

They offer unrivalled quality and innovation:

  • High-tech windproof fabric made of GORE® WINDSTOPPER®
  • Provide great protection against wind and extreme cold
  • Fit for purpose – designed for wearing under a helmet
  • Breathable upper section ensures your head doesn’t get too hot under your helmet
  • Fleece lined for ultra comfort
  • Bonded seems using ultrasonic and bonding technology, which means they’re completely flat against your skin
  • Laser cut perforations over ears (and mouth on the Balaclava)
  • Machine washable
  • 2 designs and 2 sizes
  • 3 year guarantee

I’m going to discuss a few reasons why the Petzl BUFF® Beanie & Balaclava are fit for purpose while wearing under a helmet. Firstly, they’ve been selected by Petzl to compliment their helmet range. Secondly, they will keep you warm. Thirdly, prolonged exposure to cold can impair decision making, reaction time and vigilance. Not a good mix when working at height. In conclusion, if Petzl feel that they’re safe to wear with their helmets, who are we to argue.
