The Buffalo Special 6 shirt was specifically designed to be used by professionals who require a top grade garment that will handle the most extreme conditions. It is designed to be (and works most efficiently) when worn directly next to the skin.
The shirt is a favourite with the Special forces and is regularly used by Mountain Rescue teams, Police and the Military. The overall feel of the shirt is one of comfort, warmth and very soft to the touch when worn against the skin.
The Pertex pile system is a densely woven fabric and when combined with the Aqua Pile lining has a high capillary action that is both highly breathable and very efficient at wicking away moisture from the body.
A large zipped front pocket is ideally sized for maps and gloves and carry storm baffles as do all the zips to the neck and side.
The Special 6 shirt is 5cm longer than the mountain shirt to allow for rain run off and has touch and close hip adjusters.
The hand pockets meet in the middle and are fully lined to help keep your hands warm. Inside the pocket is an adjustable strap which can be tightened to ensure the shirt fits correctly to your body shape to cut out any draughts.
There are eight ventilation controls on each shirt including 2 side zips, enabling you to open the side of the shirt fully or just under each armpit.
The Buffalo Special 6 shirt is ideal for many outdoor activities including many winter sports as it is windproof to 50 mph.

Buffalo Systems Special 6 Shirt Black
My husband is delighted with this shirt. Hoping for bad weather so he can test its full potential. Perfect fit. Arrived promptly. No issues. May consider one for myself. Will probably order the hood also.
what can I say, best piece of clothing I have bought. Acquired to replace the shirt I have worn over 25yr.
As regards the shop, if everyone was as efficient as them in taking your order and getting the items out to you ASAP, to me they're in a league of their own.
Been wanting one of these for ages, hard to find a 42 in the green, it’s true what they say, was out in a cold strong wind and only had a t-shirt on underneath, was warm and toasty! A bit tricky to get on and off but well worth it.
Militarykit were very quick to dispatch and a pleasure to buy from, if you get the chance buy from them! 👍
Super bit of kit, very warm , so light and comfortable to wear, do buy the hood too, it just makes the whole thing a complete. And keeps you toasty,all reviews I read previous to buying, are true, make sure you measure your chest size before purchasing.
