Pertex 6 Shell with 'AquaTherm' pile lining, overhead garment. Developed alongside the recommendations for the requirements of professionals, this Shirt is ideal for a multitude of outdoor uses, from winter hill-walking, trekking, cross country skiing, climbing and technical climbing.
Pertex 6 is more windproof and more resistant to abrasion, and the longer length provides a lower run off level for rain, as well as being long enough not to ride up out of a climbing harness. The Special 6 Shirt is the choice for Mountain Rescue Teams, the Armed Forces, Fire Service Emergency rescue Teams, Police Surveillance and under water search teams. Used with Buffalo HA Salopettes, and Mountain Jacket at over 23,000 ft in the Himalayas, and with this combination as insulation for an open bivouac in a Buffalo Superbag at 18,500ft. Features are the same as the 'Mountain Shirt'.
Fantastic bit of kit. Spent twice as much on outdoor coats in the past but this wins hands down. Great service from OutdoorKit as well! Delivered next day
I have a blue jacket I wear it for the football (Iam a red LFC) its the best jacket I have ever had its so warm and a great fit. its worth ever penny
fantastic. absolutely fantastic. keeps you warm arnywhere and everywhere. mine's been with me to afghanistan in winter (freezing and below) and to canada in winter and both times just wore if with a thin base layer and overheated as soon as i did anything. even survives winter in the lake district! cant recommend them enough if you're going somewhere cold!
Excellent. Have tried this hiking across windswept heath in 6.5-8C, and also doing MTB in 5C with biting wind, both times with no base layer as recommended by Buffalo. It is instantly warm when you put it on and for MTB I didn't need to cover my legs. NB: this is designed for strenuous activity where you don't want to have to keep removing layers - e.g. hiking with pack up a hill/at pace, MTB, etc. On a bike I sweated buckets (I run hot) and have learned to open up the zips and vents which dries you quickly - you won't freeze if active, although if you keep them shut you do stay warm when wet; however, if you are just going for a more gentle pace in cold temps I would wear a base layer and just accept you'll overheat as soon as you slightly raise your heart rate. Excellent top - for cyclists I'd go for the specific cycling versions as cars can at least see you in these. Also for sizing, if you are between sizes like me (41) for the Buffalo Active Lite go a size down (40), for the Buffalo Special 6 go a size up (42).
