The Buffalo Active Lite Shirt is a unique fleece-lined garment, designed as an all-in-one base-layer and outer jacket. It is a milder weather alternative to their Active Shirt, for when less insulation but maximum wicking is required. It's ideal for a multitude of outdoor uses, including low-level hill walking, trekking, climbing, mountain biking, running and general outdoor activities. The Active Lite Shirt benefits from a tougher outer thanks to the use of a mini-ripstop shell. This technical material is highly breathable, windproof and water-resistant.

Buffalo originated this one-layer system in the late 1970's, to replace the numerous layers often worn by climbers, fell runners and hill walkers in winter conditions. It comprises a lining of insulating pile fleece, with a functional and water-resistant shell outer, producing a garment that is completely windproof, lightweight and amazingly warm. It is also highly breathable and extremely efficient at transmitting moisture vapour.

As unconventional as it sounds, the Active Lite Shirt is designed to work most efficiently when worn next to the skin. In this way, the pile fabric wicks moisture away from the skin more rapidly, where it is then dispersed to the outer fabric to evaporate and keep the body dry and free from chilling. Another option is to wear a breathable base layer underneath. Side zips have been fitted, not only allowing access, but to adjust for ventilation, enabling the user to regulate their body temperature on the move.

Buffalo Systems are dedicated to producing clothing for the professional and committed outdoor activist. All Buffalo products are rigorously tested through an entire season of Scottish winter and often longer. All components, from zips to thread, are of the highest quality and are equally tested.

Sizing: Buffalo have designed the Active Lite Shirt to be a very close-fitting garment, to ensure maximum performance. Strictly speaking, the looser the fit, the less performance you will get. We recommend you measure your chest when completely expanded, and choose your size using this measurement. The Active Lite Shirt is a mid-length top, which finishes at the top of the thigh.

  This item came exactly on time - well done. The first time I tried this out on a 13 mile walk along the Dorset coast in January it poured with rain. Yes obviously I was damp inside but no way was I cold. In fact I needed both side zips undone for a while after going up some hills as I was getting a bit warm. As long as you keep moving you keep warm. I also have a windshirt and a special 6 shirt so if things get really bad I can layer up. Brilliant.

  Wonderful jacket for active use (running, hiking) 10-30 degrees F and static use up to 50 degrees F. If it gets too warm, simple use of the pit vents allows heat to escape. I found the pertex outer material to be light, soft, and comfortable - not crinkly or heavy like many other softshell or windproof/water resistant jackets. The light fleece wicking interior is very comfortable as well. Fit is true to size. Only issue is that taking it on/off can take a bit of effort, but that would be true for any pullover. Ordered from the US on a Tuesday and received it in the post by Saturday. Excellent customer service and am looking forward to ordering more items from Raymears.com.

  Great bit of kit, the quality of materials and construction is first rate. The top is light and comfortable next to the skin. I use it for mild/cold weather cycling and walking and have found it to be ideal. It feels good to be able to buy something that is not only British but is made in my home town too. Top marks.

  Bought this as a summer/spring/fall alternative to my super six. It's great for temperatures down to plus 3 here in Norway with nothing underneath. BUT you need to be on the move. Haven't tested it in rain yet, but the shirt is well made. The outer fabric seems robust, but only further use will tell. High quality windproof with some insulation, can't wait to use it as my only layer on the move with the super six as a belay jacket.
