Buffalo pile and pertex (DP) clothing if worn next to the skin is the best cold wet weather gear you can buy. Better than Gore-tex, better than Paramo, better than ventile. I own all of these options in multiple variants. All of them top end garments. Buffalo DP is the only garment range which enables you to either be wet from rain or sweat and still warm and which dries whilst you are wearing it so fast that there is no chill factor and no risk of hypothermia. A DP Active shirt or Speed 6 shirt with Special 6 trousers or HE salopettes- next to the skin - will revolutionise how you judge all other garment performance. No changing out wet thermal layers due to perspiration. Carry a size larger DP shirt or jacket with an expedition hood for static stops in gnarly freezing conditions and this is all you need.

What's not to love about this product - fantastic protection against the elements. It's become my new go-to jacket. The quality of the finish and the materials is high and it looks great too. The fact that it's made locally is icing on the cake.

Great service and fast delivery, an absolute pleasure to deal with, and by the way the jacket is great.

Very warm with just a cotton t-shirt underneath. I'm 5 foot 7 inches with a 42 inch chest breathing in and ordered to size. The chest and arm length fit is great. Body length is long on me. It's well made and appears robust. Time will tell. I'll be wearing it for sea fishing and winter coastal walks. Nice to purchase something made in England.

I really like this jacket, it is truly a great item. I have another very similar in style but the outer material is harder/stiffer than on this and it feels a little constrictive; not so on this one. The outer material is soft like a soft shell and the fit is very good. There are two zips under arm, one at the hem that can be taken up to facilitate removal and another at the armpit that can be taken down for ventilation. The zipped pockets join (kangaroo pouch) and there is a sinch cord inside to draw the item close to the body. The internal fleecey lining is not overly bulky and really performs well. I wear this with a long sleeve v.thin baselayer (arcteryx - v.good) and I find this more than enough even going out on early chilly mornings. I did try this with a further microfleece too but O felt a little uncomfortable and it's not necessary. I would suggest this item be worn stand alone whilst performing low to moderate activity - working around camp, short excursions and the like. For those thinking about layering, this acts as a base and midlayer in one. The softness of the outer layer permits a thin gore-tex style jacket to be worn over the top for additional protection (the ventilation zippers help). As stated, it is best to get a close fitting size. I don't tend to sinch the hem, I find it more comfortable this way, I do on my waterproof jacket. My only issue is with the wrist bindings - I find they shorten the arms and look a little odd when done up (obviously it is a simple and appreciated solution, however it is just my observation). All in all this item is very versatile and useful in most situations, equally at home in urban environments too.

My wife and I have just returned from 4 days in Iceland, where we wore the Buffalo System Active Shirts and Buffalo Systems Special 6 trousers, my wifes had to be bought from Cotswolds because you do not have coloured tops and she did not fancy the slate colour. We wore the tops and Special 6 trousers in all conditions including -3oC and wind speeds in excess of 50 mph, they performed excellently and will (infact did) recommend the trousers and tops to several people while we were in Iceland. As it says in the leaflets you need to wear only underwear underneath and nothing else and we were comfortable at all times. We went from outside walking in negative temperatures and high wind, to inside the car and the tops and trousers performed excellently. We were at no time too hot nor did we feel the cold or wind chill on anything except our faces. We would both not hesitate to recommend the Buffalo system to anybody that is involved in any hill walking type of outdoor activity.

The Buffalo Active Shirt is a well made and very comfortable item of kit. It's light weight so if you are out hiking and get too hot just stuff it in your day sack. If you wear it next to your skin you don't need a t-shirt. Good all season shirt.

I have not yet fully tested this jacket, as I have yet to take it skiing in the Alps. However, I recently followed the advice of the manufacturer, Buffalo Systems, by wearing the garment next to the skin in near freezing temperatures. Despite other adverse weather conditions, including high humidity and a reasonably strong wind, I felt warm and comfortable; I could not feel the elements at all! I am impressed with the comfort (42 inch chest choice was perfect for a chest measurement of 41-42 inch) and happy that I have invested in something that will last years. It looks good too (says the girlfriend). Obviously a quality jacket that deserves the trust of an experienced wood-lore craftsman such as Ray Mears.

My New buffalo active shirt arrived today and what a pleasant surprise it was. This top has the rip-stop fabric, unlike my trusty old version (the Mountain Shirt). At first I thought it would be a bit noisy, but it is almost as soft as the old one. The best thing about this top is that the zip on the front pocket does not get caught up in the flap that covers it, as it did on the old one. This was the only annoying thing about the previous top, so it is nice to see that the rip-stop material being a little bit thicker has stopped this from happening. Apart from that the top is still as good as it always was and will keep you warm as toast as long as you follow the garment guidlines. This time I purchased the Slate colour, mainly because my daughter was fed up with seeing me in green, but I'm very pleased I did as it looks great. So get your wallet out it will be the best £115.00 you will ever spend.
