When our gear guru Stephen Regenold (founder of thegearjunkie.com) selects items for Scouting magazine’s “Great Gear” column, he uses two important criteria when making his final selections: style and function. Buff headwear—featured in our May-June issue—meets both of these standards.
That’s why we decided to snag a handful of Buffs to give back to our readers: Enter our GOTCHA COVERED GIVEAWAY for a chance to win one of 10 Buffs. This contest will end in one week, on Monday, May 7.
Buffs come in hundreds of styles—whether it’s a technicolored pattern or a screen print of your favorite trail map. You can also choose the function of the headwear, too: UV protection, CoolMax fabric to keep you dry in the heat, warm “polar” Buffs that keep your neck warm in cold temperatures, and even a reflective Buff to help increase your visibility in the dark.
Plus, the tubular fabric is designed to wear in a multitude of forms, from simply wearing it to protect your neck to wearing the Buff as a skullcap, an armband, and more. We even produced a short video—starring our comedic photography director, John Fulton—to show you the different ways to wear a Buff. We had a blast producing this video with John, who just retired from the BSA after 14 years of service.
Don’t miss your chance to win a Buff headwear to take on your next Scouting adventure. It’s flexibility of function (and, of course, it’s style!) will keep you more comfortable in the outdoors.
Scouting magazine randomly selected our winners of the GET COOKING GIVEAWAY: “DINE IN” EDITION. Michael Doland, an assistant Scoutmaster and assistant Cub Master in the West LA Council, won the grand prize, a Coleman InstaStart grill and car-camping cooking essentials. Plus, 10 runners up won a BIC FlameDisk: Stephen Webster, Timothy Galata, Brian Danzi, Danny Culver, Timothy Weaver, Heidi Gamler, Doug Sumpter, John Razey, Richard Whalen, and Kendra More.
