Review: I bought the Teclite Jacket for Spring Autumn Pennine walking. It does all that fine. Yesterday the (9 June) the temperature after a dull start was nearly 20 degrees. There was a breeze above about 1000 feet in the Pennines then the sun came out and I thought I would “fry”. Not a bit of it. I was dead comfy all day. What an amazing piece of kit!
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® 4 Outer Fabric - Pertex® fabrics are the culmination of over 35 years of expertise in the precise weaving of incredibly fine yarns. Pertex® 4 uses a tightly woven structure to provide a showerproof and wind resistant fabric.
Teclite Micro-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.

This is the third teclite jacket I have owned.
All three have been slightly different but all have been very useful in a variety of situations. Can be worn as a reasonably smart jacket around town, over a t-shirt for walking in coolish spring and autumn, or over a fleece in the winter. Wind proof and water resistant in all but prolonged downpours. Simple and bombproof, they wear out eventually but only after several years of hard use.
I wish the collar had a way to tighten to keep the wind out when the hood is down.

I bought one of these so called Teclite Activity shirts last year and have worn it, and I mean it only with no outer or base layers, between April and November (when I switched to my Buffalo Mountain shirt). The Teclite is ideal for those who generate a lot of perspiration and, after years of hillwalking, proved to be the only garment in which I could finish the walk dry on the inside!! Unreservedly recommended. I'm buying a spare one!!!

Bought this for my husband's birthday - really impressed with it. Works well as second layer on top of buffalo special 6 shirt. Very speedy delivery arrived in less than 24 hours.
