View Full Version : buffalo
im looking for one of those only need to wear one layer buffalo thingys,any ideas where i might look?,cheaper the better please.
As far as I'm aware Buffalo clothing is made by Perseverance Mills, who make Pertex, who have just gone bust. I may well be wrong though.
Not a pointer to where to get one from, but also take a look at the Montane range of smocks. I'd say that the Montane designs are just that bit better thought out.
would recommend the extreme smock by montane too
http://www.hike-lite.co.uk/acatalog/Montane_Extreme_Smock_and_Hood .html do it for £69 incl p&p with a free hood....thats a good price
i've just been looking for a buffalo for the girlfriend for christmas, www.upandunder.co.uk is the cheapest i've managed to find so far, if i come up with anything cheaper i shall let you know.
I'd go for a Field Smock by Extreme Outdoor Clothing (http://www.extremeoutdoorclothing.com ). They tailor them to your size, you get to choose the fabric type/colour (they send you samples), have more venting options than a buffalo and are about £25 cheaper. Nice people to deal with too :) !
I got one to replace my buffalo and wouldn't go back. :D
last time I was in CCCoutdoors the guy said they were starting to stock buffalo stuff. might be worth phoning them.
Buffalo? Nah, go for the Snugpak Softie Elite Pile Shirt. Available form all the ususal suspects from about £50. Very warm, windproof and water resistant.
