This is my final update from the 2018 Winter Outdoor Retailer Show
Day 3 of the 2018 Winter Outdoor Retailer Show continued with more opportunities to see the latest and greatest gear.
Bright colors for ski’s seemed to be one of the trends with this year’s crop of skis. Head Skis had a Crayola box of colors for their line.

Countdown to Valentine's Day 2011: Day 3
For those of you who have been following 4AllOutdoors this week, you might remember my last Countdown post, Day 2, in which I eluded to a bit of luxury in the next post. Well, here you have it.
Yes, that’s right. You, my outdoor loving friend, should really check this out. Buff, the “original multifunction headwear”, released a luxury Buff to their lineup last year and it is dying to be worn by your fashion loving Valentine. Or maybe just the outdoor lover who could use a little sprucing up. (Remember their old, gross headgear piece of choice? Ew. You have to get rid of that.) For those of you who have been living under a rock and have yet to experience a Buff for yourself, the Buff is a super convertible, really long tube of material, merino wool in this case, that easily converts from a neck scarf to an ear warm to a hat to and balaclava and so much more. If you haven’t done so already, you need to go check out the reviews that we have done of Buffs over here.
The idea here is pretty straight forward. For the lady or lad in your life who seemingly has it all, a merino wool Buff, especially in a lovely shade of pink or red, will show them you care by keeping them safe and warm during the bitter cold of winter and by giving them a super easy to pack extra layer no matter what the season. Is your Valentine purely platonic? Then the idea stays the same. As we all know, staying safe in the great outdoors means being prepared for anything. The Buff is lightweight, durable and very easy to stash in a pocket of your pack or even in a purse for a night on the town.
Coming in at under $35, you can give your Valentine merino wool and look like you spent a fortune. Only you’ll know you didn’t.
This has been a long hot summer here in Texas. While I suffered through a severe winter, I had been very hopeful that the long hard freezes in this area would mean a severe decline in the biting bug population, but I was wrong.
The mosquitoes are out in full force as are the flies, but I had the Insect Shield UV Buff to protect me. Read more here
I do not wear hats so how could I say no to something that is not a hat, especially the Insect Shield UV Buff? It is most definitely not a hat and it promises to keep the summer bugs off of me, which is just another lure to a guy like me. You can read more about the arrival of the Insect Shield UV Buff here…

Buff in Merino Wool (Cru color)
I’m indecisive. Ask my husband. I can’t make up my mind ever. So, if I have to go and pack my bag for the trail, I wind up stuffing a hat, bandanna, earmuffs, and much more than that in to my bag. Talk about wasted space and weight!
Well, I have finally been schooled by the fine people at Buff. I no longer carry a boat load of extra layers. Instead, I carry one item. And that’s my Buff. In Merino Wool. That’s right. Merino Wool. I am now officially living the high life on the trail. And life, with my Buff, is good.
