Some people call it a buff, while others might call it a headband, but, wait, it does way more than that…

Whatever you call them (tube of fabric, do-hickie, neck warmer, headband, head sock, do-rag or Buff) they are astonishingly multi-functional for a number of uses and conditions, most involving those keeping you warm or keeping the sweat from pouring down.

You see them on runners, skiers and snowboarders, climbers, in ponytails and on car floors. They get lost in laundry, and static cling to shirts.

But no one knows what to call them.

Even more, no one knows just how many ways you can wear them.
