Just too feedback, items arrived yesterday and are very well made the special 6 trousers are fantastic but were too small so they are in classifieds if anyone is after a bargain at close to 50% off

The parka is very nice thick pile and a lot longer and more forgiving than my sj9 interms of bulk and I love the sallopettes very well made lots of adjustments with the zips and the crotch zip is genius

Thanks for the feedback folks

The buffalo jacket will be much better if used for what itís designed for - being on the move.

The fortis jacket will be much better at keeping you warm whilst sat on your arse

I have the Buffalo Parka and it is a superb jacket but not as warm as my Snugpak FJ6.

Correct. Definitely wear it next to your skin. I've got the shirt and salopettes and theybare great. Had them years and they still look like new. Very warm and comfy.

Can anyone give me a review against what im currently using Snugpak fortis sallopettes and an sj9 - Nothing wrong with it but ive been offered the buffalo park with polatherm lining so the warmest one they do and the sallopettes at a great price so debating if its. worth the change


My understanding is that the buffalo is waterproof and warm !!

its the BAS parka with polartherm
buffalo special 6 trousers
buffalo sallopettes

Im guessing I could raise the money selling my Snugpak to pay for the change so is it worth it?


Thanks in advance

I've one of their shirts and a pair of the semi thermal windproof trousers. Quality, well made and it appears durable.

#2 I'm in the market for a pair after the snugpak ones became irresistible to a mouse in that cold snap. I'll have a look at those

I use the belay jacket and sallopettes... Very comfy donít feel hindered in them at all... The jacket is not a winter jacket to sit in all day motion less.. Pertfect for mooching about in, best spring autumn jacket Iíve ever used... I use it all winter but layer up with one base layer and a Sherpa fleece... Does me fine.. Not as warm as a snugpak for sitting about in though..
canít comment on the trousers.. Sallpettes are lovely though even next to the skin...

I have a Buffalo sleeping bag, not ideal as a fishing bag, but good quality. I also have a couple of pile and pertex jumpers by another manufacturer, but very similar to the Buffalo shirts, wouldn't be without them for winters and cold mornings etc. Be careful around stoves though, I put a hole in one of mine off the car exhaust. The pertex does not like heat or naked flames.

Looking to replace my fortis sallopettes and sj9
