Buffalo Unisex DP Hood Pile & Pertex Shell £36.00
Buffalo Systems DP Hood - Unisex's
The DP Hood from Buffalo Systems is a classic, it keeps the wearer warm and dry thanks to the Pile and Pertex combination. Fits all DP System clothing.
The DP Hood can also be worn on its own as an unconventional hat with the sides folded up over the top.
The Hood has been re-developed. The peak has been resigned to be flexible so when the hood is not needed it can be taken off and easily stored in the map or hand warmer pocket. If the peak was stiffened this would be a lot harder to do. The face piece attachment strips may differ from the image.
Review: Absolutely cracking – The hood is fantastic, warm, and perfect fit. Really handy when paired with my Special 6 Shirt if the wind picks up above the snowline. It’s brilliant in wet and or windy weather. The hood keep me toastie warm! I keep meaning to stitch the face baffle on but haven’t lost it yet as the Velcro is top quality stuff. It can be used as a really efficient neck warmer too. It really lends the Belay Jackets a more solid winter feel. It brings the Mountain and Special 6 Shirts come to life. One tip: If you are buying a Shirt...get a hood, no matter what your plan is, you won’t regret it!
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.

Great hood for all DP smocks/shirts where you want to have wide angle vision. The hood is sized to fit and non volume adjustable. Sized properly this gives a snug fit and next to the skin it wicks perspiration or rain away excellently so always feels warm and will dry out very quickly. The hood has a Velcro fastened face cover which is best kept in a pocket on the garment it is attached to. This avoids losing it and having it flap around when not in use. An expedition hood is available from Buffalo which has a wired brim and a volume adjustable strap to be worn over a helmet or on its own and a fully attached face cover which can be folded to the sized and velcroed out the way. I rate this version 5 stars and the DP hood 4 stars because of these additional features.

I would thouroughly recommend this to anyone who has the Buffalo Mountain Shrit etc. As expected of a Buffalo product, it does exactly what you want it to. Keeps the wind off you and keeps you warm and snug!

My husband was absolutely delighted with his Buffalo coat at Christmas and is equally delighted with the addition of the hood. Really well designed and extremely warm. Arrived promptly.
