Schwag Grab: 5 Merino Buffs - We've got winners!

Grab yourself some useful neckwear for the cold snap

Everyone really does love a Buff, especially a wooly one, and especially when it's freeeezing outside. We got an avalanche of entries, but when we fired up the randomiser and dug our way out from under 'em we'd got five lucky winners. 

And the lucky winners are: Ridire, Jon Mack, Guy Collier, nobled and ponnymeister. Get in touch pronto at info [at] and we will get some wooly goodness in the post… first thing on Monday (well it's cold outside and we don't have any Wool Buffs of our own).

For the uninitiated the versatile Buff is a fabric loop that can be used as a scarf, headband, hat, helmet liner, smog mask... you name it, if it's a part of your head or neck the Buff will be able to cover it somehow. Traditionally Buff have made them from a seamless cotton mix but the new kid on the block is the Wool Buff, lovingly crafted from 100% Merino wool for natural stretchiness and anti-whiff properties.

We reviewed the Wool Buff last week and reviewer Leonie Jennings gave it a big thumbs up. And now you can get your hands on one gratis, because the nice people at Buff have sent us five to give away. And not only that, you'll get the instructional DVD, some Buff stickers and Buff temporary tattoos (?!) all in a nice Buff paper carrier. And we'll throw in some stickers for good measure. And some Quality Street, if there's any left in the office Christmas tin by Tiffin time on Friday. Update on the Quality Street… they've all gone, well what did you expect?
