The Original BUFF® is a seamless, tubular, multifunctional head wear accessory offering extremely useful versatility that can be used in many different combinations during both warm to cool conditions. Treated with Polygiene® anti odour technology and manufactured to not emit ultravoilet light.

Worlds first Original BUFF® to not reflect ultraviolet light

Ultraviolet light falls just outside the visible spectrum of the human eye, as such we cannot naturally perceive this light without the use of specialised lighting equipment. However this may not necessarily be the case with other creatures of the animal kingdom. It is now widely accepted that bee’s along with other insects can see into the ultraviolet spectrum, helping them to find nectar in flowers who’s petals reflect ultraviolet wavelengths. Research reveals that birds too may be able to detect ultraviolet light. However, the landmark study in 1992 at the University of Georgia first revealed that deer also may actually be able to see into the ultraviolet spectrum. This may be problematic to the hunter whose clothing may in fact emit ultraviolet light, particularly during dawn and dusk periods when deer and many other game species tend to be most active. Untreated hunting fabrics may possibly alert game species to a hunters presence during these times…

Due to this risk, we have always been vigilant to ensure all production fabrics we utilise do not reflect ultraviolet light. We did however encounter a problem when we began to source suppliers to produce our face veil products with all printed samples emitting ultraviolet light! Every sample we tested from numerous suppliers would glow brightly. Numerous failed attempts to rectify this problem eventually led us to BUFF®, located in Igualada, Spain; inventors and developers of the Original BUFF®.

We began to work closely with BUFF® in an attempt to rectify the problem of glowing fabric that may possibly be detected by the eyes of target species such as deer. Eventually being successful in developing a fabric that would not reflect ultraviolet light.

Our OmniVeil BUFF® is the worlds first Original BUFF® developed specifically to not reflect ultraviolet light, safeguarding any possibility of being detected by species that may be able to see into the ultraviolet spectrum, thereby giving the hunter an extra edge and confidence in the field.

Polygiene® – Wear More. Wash Less®

What is Polygiene and how does it work?

  • Polygiene is based on silver salt (silver chloride) produced from recycled silver.
  • Silver chloride is naturally present in water and soil.
  • Polygiene particles have a large amount of silver ions per surface area. Due to the structure of the particles, very small amounts of silver are required for effective treatment.
  • Polygiene is co-applied with other treatments to the fabric during the finishing stage. This helps minimize the impact on the environment because additional energy or water is not required.

What are the benefits of Polygiene Odour Control Technology?

The silver salt (AgCl, silver chloride) in Polygiene inhibits and guards against the growth of odours from microbes such as bacteria, fungus and mildew.

Your garments, footwear and gear will:

  • Stay Fresh – Polygiene inhibits the growth of odour-causing bacteria for that fresh-all-day feeling. Odour develops when odour-causing bacteria settles into the fabric, mixes with sweat and multiplies.
  • Stay Hygienic – Polygiene helps prevent odour and prolongs the lifetime of clothing, footwear, gear and wetsuits, since the products are treated to resist deterioration by mold fungus and odour-causing bacteria.
  • Get a permanent effect – The treatment is permanent and effective for the lifetime of the product.
  • Be more climate smart
    • Wear More. Wash Less® – Polygiene treated garments can be used several times before washing and can be washed at lower temperatures which means that you save energy, water, time and money.
    • Longer lifetime of garments, gear and footwear – Fibers live longer without bacteria and excessive washing, and treated products are not discarded prematurely due to odour.
    • Less luggage can be used when traveling.
    • Recycleable – Polygiene-treated garments can be recycled when worn-out.
    • Polygiene is bluesign® approved – the textile industry’s demanding environmental certification with a life-cycle approach.

Any efffects when worn next to skin?

  • Background in the healthcare sector – Polygiene has its heritage in the healthcare sector and has undergone extensive skin sensitivity testing.
  • No interference with bacteria naturally occurring on the skin – Polygiene is active only on the material’s surface and does not interfere with bacteria naturally found on the skin, even when used for long periods of time1, 2. Tests also conclude that there is no identified risk from dermal and oral contact with silver treatments.3
  • Polygiene is not nano silver.

Environmental Impact

The best way to reduce a garment’s environmental footprint is to wear more and wash less. Polygiene makes this possible.

  • Wear More. Wash Less® – Consumers are responsible for at least 2/3 of the environmental impact of a garment during its life-cycle4, primarily due to their laundry habits. Lack of water is an acute problem in most parts of the world. Parts of Europe, the U.S. and Asia are already experiencing shortages of fresh water.4
  • Use textiles in a sustainable way – Man-made fibers like polyester will play an important role in meeting the world’s growing demand. We need to use textiles more efficiently, that is, clothing and gear must be made of the more sustainable synthetic fibers that stay fresh, can be washed less and last longer.5
  • Lower impact on environment when Polygiene treated garments are washed less – An independent life-cycle assessment (LCA) study shows that using Polygiene-treated polyester garment more than one time before washing, lowers the garment’s environmental impact compared to an untreated garment that is washed after every use.6

Polygiene works actively to educate retailers and consumers about the impact that we all have on the environment through the clothing and laundry choices we make. Wear More. Wash Less®, recycle and reuse!

To maintain optimum performance we recommend correct laundering of our products. Ensure all zippers and closures are fastened, machine wash using a gentle cycle with a water temperature not exceeding 30ºC (85ºF). We recommend using a mild odorless detergent intended for outdoor wear that does not contain UV brighteners. To ensure all detergent residues are removed from the fabric, a second rinse cycle is recommended.

The use of fabric softeners and bleach may affect the thermal, wicking and Durable Water Repellent capabilities of performance fabrics. We advise that no fabric softeners or bleach be used when laundering this product. Likewise, chemical solvents used in dry cleaning should be avoided. Do not dry clean.

The garment may be line dried after rinsing excess water. At all times keep away from direct heat. Do not iron.
