Buffalo Unisex Pile & Pertex Mitt £48.50
Buffalo Systems DP Mitts - Unisex's
The Buffalo Systems DP Mitts are a classic. They keep your hand warm and dry in the foulest weather, they pack down incredibly small, weigh next to nothing, and dry very quickly from wet.
Whether you are walking into a Scottish winter route, trekking the Pennine Way, clearing snow from car windscreens or watching your local team on a Saturday afternoon everyone should have at least one pair in their kit bag. Ideal for too.
Review: Very warm mitts. I have been guiding in the Artic for 5 years. These are the only gloves that can keep my hands warm at -22C. I have used these mitts at -30C with a wollen mitt liner and I was toasty warm all day. To sum up If you want something light and warm look no further. They will keep your hands warm and comfortable in some wild conditions that include horizontal rain, hail and snow. Nothing beats these mitts. Very highly recommended.
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.

Very warm, waterproof and windproof. A fantastic winter glove, that showcases the usual high quality from Buffalo. Have used on winter walks and also on my bike. I intend to use them skiing as well. As with the Buffalo jacket that I have owned and loved for 20 years, these mitts are also warm when wet. Still not sure how they do that!

As an ultra-trail runner, I was recommended these as a good bit of kit to have for winter running. They are fantastic - they pack down surprisingly small,and I use them as an outer pair of gloves when it gets truly miserable. Fantastic at keeping you warm (even when wet), highly recommended.
It's the kind of gear that you might only need a handful of times each year (depending on your activity and where you are based, of course), but these are worth every penny.
Fantastic service from Jackson Sports too - quick and efficient delivery - thank you.

Thank you Jackson Sports for having the full size range in stock. Reading the sizing advice ( my hands are M wide and L long usually) I took a punt on XL to go over a liner if necessary and XXL over those. Gives an 'easy on' fit. These for a trip to northern Sweden in Feb, snowmobiling. Maybe let you know how I get on..
SIZE & FIT
