Buffalo Systems DP Hood - Slate/Black


Weight: 90 g         3 reviews
The Buffalo Systems DP Hood is designed to fit all Buffalo Shirts and Jackets by way of a secure Velcro strip. The hood provides extra protection against the elements, and is the perfect accessory for their classic Active Shirt. Made in the same colours and materials as the Active Shirt, the DP Hood is a must-have for owners of Buffalo jackets.

Constructed of a Pertex shell with an Aquatherm pile lining, the DP Hood will not only protect you from wind, rain and snow, but it will also keep your head insulated. Windproof in gales of up to 65 kph, it will also resist rainfall up to 12.7 mm per hour.

The two-position adjuster strap allows the snorkel to be drawn around the face in adverse conditions, while the detachable face-mask can be positioned when required to enclose the mouth and nose, protecting the user from spindrift. If anticipating severe windy conditions, the face mask can be sewn into position at one side.

  Good bit of kit, bit more basic and flimsier than my old mountain smock hood. No draw string or elastic to adjust the face either, but it will do the job.

  The standard DP hood is an excellent addition to your active shirt or special 6 shirt for all but the worst weather. It makes sense to go for the same colour as your shirt and the DP hood covers all colours. However it does not have a wired peak nor does it have a hood reduction device on the back and the face cover flap is not permanently attached and is held in place by Velcro. The flap is probably best removed and kept in the top chest zipped pocket of the shirt for when you do not need it rather than have it flapping and at risk of losing it when you have the hood down. Buffalo do offer an Expedition hood which is wired, does have a reduction strap and has a face flap permanently fixed. This hood is able to go over a climbing helmet and one size does all by using the reduction strap. It is only available in green or black but is a better option for high wind gnarly conditions. Hence the DP hood gets 4 stars and the Expedition hood would get 5. Woodlore ought to consider offering the Expedition hood in green to go with the special 6 shirt and trousers. I use this hood with mine but still am very happy with the DP hood on my Active and Mountain shirts.

  I bought this to fit onto my Active Shirt over the Winter. It arrived just in time, (within 36 hours of ordering), for the recent cold/snowy spell. As with my other Buffalo clothing, as mentioned shirt and mitts, it is faultless. Warm and a good fit, it is far superior than my Thinsulate bob hat. Like all Bufallo stuff it's not actually waterproof but that doesn't seem to matter. Another great buy, another great service from Woodlore, bring on Winter proper and let's get out there!
