BUFF® Releases Limited Edition Pride 2022 Collection

June 2, 2022

To celebrate and promote inclusion in the outdoors, proceeds from each unit sold will support LGBTQ+ Outdoor Access Programs

SANTA ROSA, California (June 2, 2022)/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ –BUFF®, creator of versatile performance head and neckwear for all-season outdoor enthusiasts and athletes, is excited to announce their limited edition Pride 2022 collection in time for Pride Month. BUFF’s latest collaboration gives back to the outdoor community and adds fun and bright colorways to their neckwear lineup. To support the inclusion of LGBTQ+ people in the outdoor space, proceeds from the Pride 2022 collection will benefit The Venture Out Project in the U.S., and Welcome Friend Association’s Rainbow Camp in Canada. These organizations were chosen for their commitment  to providing a safe and fun space for queer, trans, and LGBTQ+ people to experience the outdoors.

Created by graphic artist Tim Singleton, the Pride 2022 collection is composed of three custom Original EcoStretch Multifunctional Necktubes, each combining themes of adventure, exploration, and Pride. While working on the BUFF Pride 2022 collection, Singleton wanted to make sure his designs had an element of the “unexpected,” so his patterns include both typical pride imagery as well as abstract, retro-inspired patterns.

“Tim has done great things with his art in support of the LGBTQ2S+ community, and the designs he has made for us show our commitment to making the world an inclusive place for everyone to explore and to Live More Now,” said Graham Stephens, Safety Sales Specialist at BUFF Canada.

Proceeds from the BUFF Pride 2022 collection will go directly to the Venture Out Project in the US and Rainbow Camp in Canada to help these organizations further their mission of providing 2SLGBTQ+ people with the opportunity to build community and enjoy the outdoors.
