Buffalo kit has been a bit of a revelation to me after a couple of decades of sweaty membrane waterproofs and damp Paramo kit. Worn as it should be, snug fit and next to the skin, it's so effective in cold, damp conditions it's hard to understand why it's not more popular. I have added this hood to replace a mismatched older one I was using. Warm and finishes off the mountain shirt, but in high winds the visor is soft and can fold down to cover eyes when head down into the wind / snow. Buffalo could improve this by offering a flexi 'wired' version to keep the peak solid enough to stay in shape under harsh conditions but bendy enough to be easily packable.
