  All Buffalo clothing is exceptional. These jackets keep you warm and dry with ease. If it’s not cold enough they really are too warm to wear. The service was second to none fast and a very easy transaction. If you have received your £150 rebate from the government for increased utility bills put it towards a special 6 jacket - you will not feel cold in it.

  Outstanding piece of kit. I’ve taken this out at 5am at -2c with nothing on underneath as recommended. It felt strange leaving the house with just this jacket on but all I can say it wow. I was so warm. I was shocked with how warm it kept me. I am between sizes and ordered the size above and it feels like it fits perfect. So I would recommend going a size bigger if in between. I would also say you need to buy the hood. I didn’t with my original order but I have since bought one locally as it was the same price. Cannot recommend this shirt and this website highly enough. Ordered before going to bed on Thursday and it arrived Saturday morning.

  I’ve worn a Buffalo Special 6 before for work and was so impressed I purchased a second one for home from Woodlore. A must have for cold outdoor weather. This is the first time I’ve purchased anything from Woodlore. Competitive prices, speedy delivery and good customer service.

  Had many buffalo products over the last 25+ years, one of those is still in use after 20+ years. Top quality British made product that have seen me through many deployments whatever the weather. The fit and comfort is top notch.

  Fantastic bit of kit. I have one already and bought this for my partner. Used these in the military for years and they were the best item I had. Very warm and great at blocking the wind and wet. Although not waterproof the shirt kind of acts like a wet suit to keep you warm. As soon as the rain stops the shirt is dry within 20 mins of walking. Excellent site to by from, very speedy delivery.

  I have been wearing Buffalo Systems tops for 24 years: none of them have worn out but I keep getting bigger! They are extremely well-made, still made by experts in Sheffield. For hill walks in the UK the Special 6 is the only top you need (perhaps with a waterproof in persistent rain). I can't recommend this and other Buffalo products enough. They are well-priced at Woodlore and have free quick delivery. Ray only stocks the best products, which you can be assured that this is.

  Time for a new Buffalo!! My last one lasted me 22 years and even saw 8 years of military service plus many other adventures. It is still wearable but just looking a little flappy as it’s picked up a few rips along the way. Who better to buy a new one from but Ray Mears! Also it was competitively priced, so a no brainer to buy from his store. Buffalo kit ain’t cheap but it lasts for many years.
