    An absolute classic, people I know have had one for over 10 years – check out the web for proof of extreme tests – then go buy one! You won’t be disappointed.

  2. Max says:

    I watched my mates live in theirs and swear by them for years before I stumped-up the considerable readies for what appeared to be a modest garment. What a plonker I was to have waited so long before luxuriating in this most important bit of kit I’ve ever worn. It’s literally saved my bacon or given me the edge on countless occasions, whether it be: static in horizontal rain, tabbing over the Beacons, motorbiking through the pre-dawn Fens or watching TV in freezing student digs. Lived in mine for about 15 years and only now is it tired enough to consider replacing. The Buffalo Mountain Shirt is the only outdoor kit I ever recommend, now. Don’t be a plonker, get one ASAP. Cheers, Buffalo!

    Without doubt the best bit of kit you could ever buy of hill walking. (except your boots of course)

  4. Cle says:

    What an amazing piece of kit, it’s helped bring the fun back to working outside in the winter again, thank you Buffalo. :D

  5. Phil Mars says:

    i have one of the original Buffalo jackets bought in Yeovil in 1980s,it is still a brilliant bit of kit but i intend to purchase a new one,and retire this one to the gardening jacket,a amazing bit of kit well done.
    PS I even fell in the river Dart with it on in mid winter, on getting out it drained but kept me warm.

    Being a broke climber I spend Most of my money on petrol and cakes.
    Having a calling to enter a charity shop in Yorkshire one day I found a BUFFALO M Jacket (something I’ve always wanted) in top notch condition for the princely sum of 5.90!.
    This jacket has to be the best garment I’ve ever used outdoors, as well as looking cool, its excellent for belaying in cold damp conditions, keeping my concentration where it needs to be.
    Money well spent :) , and when its life is over I’ll be getting myself a new one straight away, no cosmic ordering.

  7. STROG says:

    This warm jacket saved my skinny body many times from cold and strong winds in mountains of Croatia.
    Thank you,Buffalo.

  8. Natasha says:

    Bought mine 20 years ago in the UK and it is still good, although looking to buy new. Best thing I ever spent money on. Live in Canada, have done for a while, have worn it to run in the winter, play outdoors in the very cold and just as a jacket (always get great comments on how good it looks!)
    Never cold when I wear it. A brilliant hard wearing, long lasting jacket!

  9. John Crewe says:

    Can’t recommend this jacket enough. Until I bought it a year ago, I’d been using my wife’s 20 year old Big Face shirt which she bought to go up McKinley. That jacket is still in use, but I wanted a newer, smarter jacket for my sports coaching business. It performs amazingly in the cold, wind and rain. I’ve never been wet in it and I’ve used it in some serious Yorkshire Dales weather. Bombproof.

    Half a lifetime ago I listened (for once) to the nasty shouty training Corporal and spent what seemed like half my wages on a Buffalo and was glad I did. Every winter since then I have lorded it over my friends who were stupid enough to ignore my advice and opted to by some pointless down jacket. I dread to think how many times this amazing garment has saved my @r$e from freezing into a blubbering snoty mess in the bottom of a shell scrape or on a hillside somewhere. I’ve had to replace my initial purchase only twice, once be cause my running patch repairs couldn’t keep the jacket operationally effective anymore and the second time.because some thieving git liked the look of my new jacket. I have just recently purchased myself the buffalo sleeping bag and am now looking to some more lording after what is destined to be an amazing nights sleep. That you Buffalo, and I suppose thank you Cpl Spence.

    my mate has a buffalo mountain shirt . he go’s fishing sometimes all night even in the winter, i really didn’t believe him when he used to tell me how warm he was out there all night in the freezing weather, i just could not see how any jacket/shirt could keep you warm standing there in the cold all night, so i thought i would try one, i want one for going to Scotland every year, one for summer and one for winter, ive just had a teclite shirt and also ordered a mountain shirt, i thought they must be good, i see that there is a waiting list all the time. I haven’t tried mine yet but i will write again when ive tested it. Maurice

    Quite simply the best bit of kit you can buy for the British weather. I am on my 3rd one after 15 years. Splash out and get the hood. Very handy when it is driving rain. They keep you warm even when soaked providing you are moving, and dry out very quickly.
    Also got the bike version for really cold winter rides and it works just as well.

    I bought my Olive Green version whilst a keen Officer Cadet in 2003 and this took me through many OTC exercises and Cambrian Patrol. Since then it has been used countlessly including accompanying me in the rucksack or wearing it on over 100 Munros, and still going strong. Only downside is one of the zip puller thingies broke a couple of weeks ago after probably being used a thousand times. Fantastic kit and complemented by the hood which I wish I had bought earlier, makes it very snug!
