Buff gives a nod to the National Park Service’s 100th birthday in new product collection

We all love our national parks. Whether we’re venturing into the vast backcountry ski terrain of Rocky Mountain National Park (CO), Glacier National Park (MT), Yellowstone National Park (WY), Yosemite National Park (CA), etc., or embarking on the many non-skiing adventures that every national park provides, the National Park Service (NPS) plays a big part in the lives of American skiers. The NPS will be celebrating its 100th birthday this August and Buff is introducing a NPS themed collection of headwear to celebrate. The UV Buff headwear will pay tribute to Glacier National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, Great Smoky Mountains National Park (TN), Yellowstone National Park (WY), Grand Canyon National Park (AZ) and Yosemite National Park. The lightweight headwear is versatile—offering 12 different ways to wear it—and blocks 95 percent of ultraviolet rays.

“Hikers, campers, backpackers and national park enthusiasts can now commemorate their adventures with this historic souvenir,” says Shirley Brunetti, vice president and general manager at Buff, Inc. “In addition to celebrating the centennial, our inspiration for this collection came from a desire to engage the next generation of youth to get outside and learn about the importance of environmental stewardship, conservation and protecting our green spaces. We have 407 national parks in the U.S. and with continued volunteering and community-based support we can successfully preserve them for another 100 years and longer.”

The UV Buff National Park Collection is now available for $25 each at buffusa.com. See the press release below for more information.
