Default To Face Shield or Not to Face Shield... that is the question

For those of you who have tried them, what do you think?

Do they get hot?

I'd imagine breathing into cloth in the hot sun would get warm and moist...

What do you guys think?

I do like the idea of my neck and face not getting fried and not having to put on sunscreen.

I've tried two different ones and just can't get used to them. I see guys wearing them all the time out on the lake (Pueblo sun is brutal) so it must be different for others.

Sunscreen for me.

If you get one cut a slit for your blowhole.

Ed,
I'm thinking what you've experienced, without a nose and mouth slit I imagine it'd be a bit warm.

If anything I guess you could use it to cover your neck.

I've got a Mangrove brand that I'll let you have cheap. You might go somewhere you can try one on-you'll know right away if its something you can wear.

I use mine constantly but do not like putting the cloth over my mouth. I just put it over the rest of my head. It keeps me super cool in summer, warm in winter. I put sunscreen on my nose and the small area it doesn't cover. I swear by them and hate when I forget em. When it's hot, there is nothing like soaking that sucker in the water and wearing it with a tiny breeze... instant comfort

ive been wondering about those as well. i hate blistered burnt necks. it makes the weed salve burn when you put it on. sometimes i get away with just weed salve for sunscreen. all natural!!! i sometimes wonder if the poison in sunscreen isn't worse than the sun cancer? weed salve really soothes mild sun burn and wind burn so well its gone in the morning.

A company to check out that I like for their Buffs is Free fly.


https://www.freeflyapparel.com/


I am not a fan of covering mouth and nose unless it is really cold out but then my glasses get all fogged up. I use mine to cover my neck mostly. I do wear a collared shirt that i pop the collar up and use the buff to hold it up to keep the sun off the back of my neck.
