UVX Balaclava from Buff

I'm a big fan of Buff and the entire lineup of sun protection. I was excited to see the new UVX Balaclava (available Spring 2014) because it will save me from having to make a decision. With the traditional Buff sun protector I found myself either wearing the piece on my face to protect it from the sun or pulling it down to protect the back of my neck, a spot sun sensitive spot if there ever was one. The Balaclava is designed to cover the neck, ears, head, shoulders and upper chest. It also includes breathing holes to help prevent sunglasses from fogging and seamless seams for comfort. It will run $35. http://www.buffusa.com/sports/

The Salt Lake Tribune is providing a look at some of the gear shown at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market last week at the Salt Palace Convention Center. Because the show is closed to the public, we thought we would share a peak with the public about gear coming to the outdoors world. Items will be featured on the Tribune's Hiking Utah and Fishing Utah blogs. An Outdoor Retailer package also ran in the Tribune.
