    A brilliant lightweight jackect for use in all conditions. Running all over the the mountains in Scotland and never overheated but i never got cold! No wind got through either.

    I’ve been using the Teclite shirt for 10 years now . Mainly mountain biking but sometimes in conjunction with the salopettes when canoeing or skiing. A warm feel when you put it on and dries quickly, so no need to put wet gear on the next morning. OK on warm days too, just open some zips and you’re in business. Was sceptical when my mates bought Buffalos but 10 or so years in, it must be good!

    I’ve had this jacket for a year now. In fact I have two – one for my casual use when I walk the dogs, or walking in the hills and it’s not cold enough for the mountain shirt and one for my sports coaching in the warmer months. It’s tough, very windproof and stops all but the heaviest rain – and even when it is sopping it dries so easily, which for me is such a big selling point. Totally recommended.

    I bought this shirt for Ice climbing and back country skiing. The concept is good but the shirt needs some refinement. First the bad; The shirt does not integrate well with a harness and the zippered sides can be painful in a semi-hanging belay and when you are wearing your harness all day. The baggy-ness gets in the way while trying to see your feet during climbing and can get in the way when trying to get gear (slings, ice screws and cams) off your harness. Also the hood is extremely poorly designed. It does not work well with a helmet; on another note the detachable hoods on their other garments are even worse. What this shirt does bring to the table; the flexibility of this garment is impressive with the ability to open up the sides and vent directly to your skin. The classic combo of a wind and insulation layer is time tested and effective. The wide sleeves are probably over looked as an asset but they allow lots of ventilation. I truly like the large chest pocket that does not interfere with your climbing harness. For less technical pursuits this shirt is appropriate but for those requiring a helmet and/or a harness there are better choices out there. I find I don’t use this shirt much anymore and it just sits there un-used. The shirt is great I simply have other options that are better.

    Buffalo reply:
    The Teclite Shirt has been designed as a garment for walkers and not climbers, hence the reason the hood will not fit over a climbers helmet. This is also the case for the zips, and especially the hand warmer pocket as a harness will get in the way, though the zips can still be used for venting perfectly well. The slightly baggier nature of the cut is used to help cool you down is warmer conditions. Our climbers shirt is the Big Face Shirt and use the Expedition Hood, which is designed to be worn over a helmet, again something the standard DP Hood was never designed to do. Thank you for your comments, as I am sure they will help other people make an informed choice if they are climbing.

    Excellent top for walking – I use mine every day, mostly for the 05:00 dog walk (3 mile cross country) except for those odd occasions where it is too warm! It also goes on hols with me – it was excellent in the Azores which had a surprisingly British feel to the weather in July (it rained on several days) and will go skiing in January. On the odd occasion when it has allowed water through the shell, it was cold for a few minutes, then everything heats up and you don’t notice the damp any more.

    Less excellent for cycling though, the hood bunches up behind my neck and the colour (black) is not very visible. It looks like I’ll have to put a cycle teclite on my Xmas wish list!

    Addendum to original post:
    Areas for improvement:
    1: Cuffs can be too loose and baggy even when fully fastened up, a little more touch and close tape on the cuff would be good, and;
    2: The zips still snag on the fabric, which is jolly annoying!

    Reply From Buffalo
    1: We have made the cuff area slightly larger as this aides venting and therefore the ability to cool down. We do add more of the touch and close tape onto the cuff for this reason so that they can be pulled in when required.
    2: When having lightweight fabrics like Pertex, there is always the chance that the material will catch in the zips. We have added internal baffles to the Teclite Shirts now and this has greatly reduced this catching on the zips.

    Hi there
    Got this shirt, just what I wanted. The Special 6 Shirt I had for 15 years and found it too hot for me (great complaint for a hillwalker). The Teclite Shirt is perfect: the front straight through pocket is the most under rated item in your product range, the rucksack belt and cold hands go together. The pouch and hood brilliant. Just great for walking dog to hillwalking well done guys.
    Just one little idea what about the hook so that you can hang the garment up

    Hi Donal
    Thank you for the comments. The reason we do not put the hang loops in the back of our Shirts is that as they are worn next to the skin, testing has found that this hang loop can rub on the back of the neck and become quite irritating after a bit.
    Thanks for the comment though.
    Regards
    Buffalo Team

    I’ve had the special 6 shirt for six months now, really can’t fault it in any regard but the above comment about a hanging loop rang a bell. How about a loop on the external surface, perhaps on the seam below the hood Velcro? I’m considering a tech lite shirt as my spring/ summer/travelling alternative. If you have heard about the DP system, buy one of the shirts/jackets you will be impressed!
