Function not Fashion 

For those who take seriously the challenge of outdoor activities, beyond that of the casual summer enthusiast, clothing is a serious business. Whether that activity is mountaineering, climbing, hill walking, skiing, multi-terrain biking or canoeing, function not fashion is the only criterion. When a shirt, jacket or pair of trousers cannot just make you comfortable, but could possibly be instrumental in saving your life, then it pays to select a product that has been tested and is intended for use in extreme conditions. In life threatening conditions colour and style become unimportant. 
Buffalo was established to meet the needs of those who pursue their pleasure seriously whatever the season or weather. In the late 1970’s Buffalo originated the Pertex/Pile concept after developing Pertex with Perseverance Mills Ltd. This densely woven capillary fabric absorbs and disperses moisture very rapidly along its fibres and over the surface area, where it evaporates. It is also highly windproof, and repels external moisture, when used in conjunction with the insulating Pile fabric developed by Buffalo. This results in a system which keeps the user warm, whilst wicking moisture away from the body and repelling external moisture. 
The result ensures that you are comfortable in cold, wet conditions. Since the origination of this concept these fabrics have been technologically improved and the range of clothing and sleeping bags set the standard in the field. All Buffalo products are tested rigorously over at least a Scottish winter season. All the components from zips to thread are likewise thoroughly tested and are the best available. The quality and performance can be judged from the fact that Mountain Rescue Teams, RAF Rescue Teams, Association of Mountain Instructors, Police and Fire Service Emergency teams and Under Water Rescue Teams all buy Buffalo. 
There are no superfluous features on any of the Buffalo range; no unnecessary zips and pockets; no unnecessary seams to allow moisture penetration and thus cause chilling; no yearly colour change in an attempt to be fashionable. The aim remains the same : function not fashion - performance and durability being the only criterion.
