I’ve had a few buffalo’s but wanted the belay as I liked the full zip as an alternative. For me it provides more usage as the temp can be controlled more by opening the zip. Great job, It’s well put together and durable. Very pleased.
The pile is very comfortable and dries quickly. Versatile and top quality. Everyone needs one!

Excellent service from MK. Well packaged and fast delivery

Shauny (Gloucester, GB)
Buffalo belay jacket

A Buffalo item doesn't need a review as consistent quality should be a given: Buffalo apparel is my post- winter swimming anti-hypothermia standard and a slip in its performance would be intolerable. Postage and service from Military Kit were great and fuss-free, though placcy bag covering item could have been a bit more durable: outer wrapping had a few nicks when item arrived which mercifully didn't pierce the Buffalo. I'd have returned it in extreme miffage had they done so. All well!

Really good Buffalo pile lined pertex outer zip up jacket.

Really liked the old one I used to have, so this is the replacement for the long ago lost one. Very warm coat. I got also hood in green to match the jacket. Had to get a 48 inch chest as they size up a little smaller than the Special Six shirt and their unlined Windshirt, it seems. To be able to be snug fitting like the 46 inch chest shirts are on me.

Second Buffalo Jacket that I have purchased.
Quality item, delivered with minimal fuss!

David Slade (Cambridge, GB)
The perfect jacket

I already own the Buffalo Special 6 Shirt which is perfect hiking/outdoor jacket for autumn/winter, so I wanted the same versatility just in a different colour and style. Again, a great piece of kit – looks great, but more importantly I’m not overheating in spring temperatures but I'm warm when it drops close to zero. Also ordered at 3pm one day, arrived the next morning!! Excellent service, Highly recommend.
