Review: Tough Jacket. Brilliant, superb, great fit, great comfort, great performance. Simply the best bit of kit I’ve ever owned! Had one for twenty years – yes 20! Trekked in Nepal, worn under a leather on a motorcycle tour in New Zealand. Worn all the time for everything. Massive pockets (bottle of wine fits in one!). Comfy, light, warm, snug and one of the best features is when not worn will stuff into a very small bag, try that with a fleece. It’s been like security blanket to me. It's time to get a new one as the pile was getting a little flat and thin. The optional velcro hood is a must. The only jacket you need!
Buffalo DP System - To be comfortable in adverse conditions you need to be dry and warm. The concept behind the Buffalo DP System is to keep the wearer comfortable no matter what nature has in store.
Pertex® Quantum Outer Fabric - Pertex® Quantum fabrics are the culmination of over 35 years of expertise in the precise weaving of incredibly fine yarns. Pertex® Quantum uses a tightly woven structure to provide a light and soft fabric that allows insulation to fully loft.
AquaTherm Pile Lining - It allows for a layer of insulating air around the body making it very warm. The pile does not absorb water, so body moisture is expelled. Used along with Pertex® fabrics will keep you warm under the most severe conditions.
How to clean and re-proof your Buffalo garment.
Regular washing helps maintain the performance of Buffalo products and keep your friends. It restores the loft of the pile fabric and separates the fibres, revitalising the performance. In the eventuality of the pile becoming matted even after washing, the fibres can easily be restored by brushing to separate the fibres.
As you prepare for your next season of outdoor and mountain adventures, you may need to ask yourself if your gear is ready to perform its best. Especially, your technical outerwear.
Buffalo Systems Jackets and Shirts are the benchmark for staying dry during outdoor activities like hiking, bushcraft, exploring, and mountaineering, but they require intentional care in order to maintain a high level of performance. The outer face fabric will lose water-repellency over time and with wear & tear, but this can be rejuvenated by undertaking a couple of simple steps.
Caring for your gear, even in a small way can help prevent longer-lasting damage to gear. Damaged or ineffective gear is not used to its maximum potential – or used, at all!
In our world, we should all be striving to be responsible consumers, focusing on maximizing the useful lifespan of our outdoor technical garments, instead of replacing them prematurely and unnecessarily.
A little care goes a long way.
Below, we have provided a simple outline for cleaning and re-proofing your Buffalo Systems outerwear. It is as simple as your normal washing routine, but with a couple of small and important tweaks.
When is it time to clean my Buffalo garment?
You will know that it is time to clean your Buffalo when you notice that the jacket or shirt fabric is starting to absorb rain droplets, rather than repel them.
Nearly all outdoor brands and manufacturers use a thin DWR coating on the outside face fabric of their technical outwear; this coating is what causes water droplets to bead up and roll off. There are various types of DWRs, but most often, when your Buffalo “stops working” it is simply because its DWR layer has faded away, or been contaminated by dirt, grime, or other agents (food residue, other liquids, campfire smoke, snot, etc.)
Washing Your Buffalo garment.
We would advise you to run your washing machine without detergent and softeners for one cycle before washing your Buffalo garments to ensure the machine is completely clean, as well as removing any residue left in the washing machine tray.

Buffalo DP clothing works brilliantly in cold wet weather. Worn next to the skin you will feel warm and dry even if wet with rain or perspiration. The wicking ability is amazing and gone are the times of having to change out thermals soaked under your waterproofs at the end of a walk or after a climb. If the weather is really gnarly and you need to stop for food or the wind is howling and an extra layer is needed or if climbing and need to add a layer - the belay jacket is just the thing you need. Buy the expedition hood which is wired and volume adjustable and has a fixed face cover which can be rolled back and Velcro’d out the way and you have the perfect second layer.

Been using Buffalo clothing for over twenty years.
Great quality and perfect for those days out in the mountains, climbing, snowshoeing. A very versatile garment. There should be at least one amongst your winter clothing.

Buffalo's Belay Jacket, size 42 to slip over a size 40 shirt, is the warmest jacket I have come across. Only snag I found is that the collar above the velcro tends to collapse. Two handy zipped side pockets.
