SANTA ROSA, Calif. (March 30, 2010) â€“ Officials from Buff, Inc. are pleased to announce the sponsorship of youth athlete Jordan Romero as he embarks on his ambitious quest to be the youngest person to summit Mount Everest. Jordan Romero is set to depart for Kathmandu on April 5, 2010.
Jordan Romero, 13, a native of Big Bear Lake, Calif., only has two peaks remaining on his list to climb the world's seven highest summits: Mount Vinson Massif on Antarctica and Mount Everest. After Everest, Romero aims to summit Mount Vinson in the winter of 2010.
Buff, Inc. is proud to have the opportunity to sponsor Jordan as he embarks on this incredible challenge,â€ says Shirley Choi Brunetti, general manager and vice president, United States. â€œBuff, Inc. feels strongly about supporting Jordan and the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts.â€
â€œI love Buff,â€ said Jordan. â€œIt's the coolest thing in the world. I like to ski with it, hike with it, and just about any other adventure, whether it's blazing hot, super cold, and everything in between. I need water, my shoes and a Buff, and I'm set.â€
Jordan will be wearing the UV Buffï£¨, which protects against 95-percent of damaging UV rays and can be worn over 12 different ways to accommodate different temperatures and offer a custom fit. The UV Buffï£¨ is made from CoolMaxï£¨ fabric to provide superior moisture wicking and dry comfort properties, as well as helping to reduce skin temperature and maintain hydration.
All Buffï£¨ models, except for the Wool Buffï£¨, incorporate Polygiene technology for active odor and sweat control by releasing non-toxic silver ions to break down odor-causing bacteria.
