A design classic developed with the Special Forces. Tested over 30 years in the most hostile conditions. Used by Military, Police, Mountain Rescue Teams.
Ideal for a multitude of outdoor uses including:
Professional use, high level winter hill walking, trekking, winter climbing, and general outdoor activities.
This garment works most efficiently when worn next to the skin
Sizing is important as the shirt should be close fitting without being restrictive.
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).
