Buffalo Product Range
Buffalo products were originally designed as a one layer system of outdoor winter clothing to replace the numerous layers usually worn by climbers, fell runners and hill walkers in winter conditions. Due to the comfort and simplicity of the system, it wasn't long before it was used in many other outdoor activities. As a result of this cross over, Buffalo went on to design performance outdoor clothing and sleeping bags for specific activities, developing the fabrics further to accommodate other climatic conditions. The result is a range of high quality, performance products designed to give maximum comfort with minimum fuss.
Pertex / Pile System
Buffalo are the originators of the Pertex/Pile system. To understand how the system works is to realise it's simplicity.
Pertex is a densely woven fabric with high capillary action. When combined with any of the five Buffalo developed pile linings, a garment is produced which is windproof, warm, lightweight and resists rain. It is also highly breathable and extremely efficient at transmitting moisture vapour.
The correct sizing and a knowledge of how the ventilation zips are used, ensures the user gets the best from the garment. The simplicity determines there is little to go wrong, no pores to clog up or laminates to wear off. Where possible, we have avoided patches, needless pockets with unnecessary zips, or fancy trims all of which detract from the performance.
