-Gear Expert Stephen Regenold Credits Buff's Lightweight, Multifunctional Nature as Reason for Naming it Number One-

Minneapolis, MN (May 16, 2007) – The Original Buff, possibly the most versatile piece of technical clothing ever, was recently named the “Greatest Gear of All Time” by gear expert Stephen Regenold in his syndicated Gear Junkie newspaper column.

Described as, the “best of the best gear items” that “have over the years earned my stamp of approval – and then some,” the Greatest Gear of All Time honorees included products from companies such as Kona bikes, Ibex clothing and Granite Gear backpacks, but it was the Original Buff that stood above the rest as Regenold's, “favorite outdoors product from the past five years.”

“Nothing else I've tested has stuck with me as much as the Original Buff,” writes Regenold in the article. “I use Buffs year-round, as headbands in the summer, hats in the spring and fall, and balaclavas during the wintertime. They are lightweight, multi-functional items that have become literally indispensable for me during outings that range from ultra-endurance races to nightly jogs through my neighborhood.”

Shirley Choi-Brunetti, who oversees the Barcelona-based Buff brand in the U.S, said she was ecstatic to learn Buff had been named the Greatest Gear of All Time.

“It's quite an honor to be named number one amongst all the great products that received Stephen's praise,” said Choi-Brunetti. “Buff is one of those products where one really has use the product to fully understand and appreciate its versatility. Stephen did that and discovered the Buff is a great piece of gear. We couldn't be happier.”
