  I have mine still and bought this for my son. I like this style as they vent easily and the new colourway has done away with the red zip which makes this one better to look at. As for wearing - windproof, water resistant, dries fast, light in weight, warm and rugged. Sizing is accurate. I wear a large my son a medium I’m 5’10 and quite broad. My son is 5’8. Delivery great.

  Really practical, tough bit of kit. Wore it for Strathpuffer when the weather got grim overnight and it was amazing. Legendary kit, but you can believe the stories, classic for a good reason. Hard to fault really, I wish the cut was a bit longer, but it just works really well and I’m pretty much living in it. Great kit, get one and you really won’t regret it.

  I have used this jacket for fishing and dog walks in temperatures from 12C to -2C. It regulates body heat well, never seeming chilly or too warm. It held up well and kept me dry in moderate rain. I don’t need anything better than this for day to day British weather.

  Great product, best price I could find, reliable delivery, this has now become my go to jacket as the temperature's dropping. Buffalo is a quality brand but I've never been keen on the shirts so this jacket is a perfect alternative. Buffalo tend to be on the larger end of the size bracket so I knew to go for M, being 6ft 1inch.

  Amazing piece of kit. Buffalo's Pertex and Pile is a genius combination, tried and tested over many years. This jacket fits well, is very comfortable and even tho Buffalo say they don't design with aesthetics in mind, I think it looks great. The zip never catches or gets stuck to the fabric, the pockets are much larger than they appear. I would very much recommend.

  Fantastic product and a great price. I've used Buffalo products (Special 6 Shirt and more recently Belay Jackets) for over thirty years (I still have and use my original jacket). Great product and great quality.

  The item was delivered a day after it was ordered - well done Woodlore. The jacket fits perfectly on top of a base layer t-shirt. The ideal winter jacket - just right for keeping warm and dry on my daily walks with my crazy spaniel.

  Jacket arrived in double quick time. This is my second Belay Jacket (had the last one 15 years, still going strong but I just fancied a new one!). Windproof, stays warm when wet, packs down easily in your bergen, big pockets, two way zip (why don't all jackets have them?). Brilliant piece of kit made in Sheffield. Don't waste your money on one of those trendy down jackets that people wear to the pub, this is the real deal.
