The Buffalo Special 6 is slightly larger, longer version of the Classic Buffalo Mountain Shirt. Cut 5cm longer to allow more rain run off the Special 6 is ideal for taller users. The Special 6 is designed to replace a layering system with one jacket to keep you warm and dry in all conditions. The Special 6 consists of an outer shell made from Pertex Quantum with a thick AquaTherm pile lining. While none of the constituent parts are waterproof in the same sense a shell jacket, the combination of windproof outer and extremely fast wicking pile lining will keep you warm and dry in very wet conditions. Buffalo recommend that the Special 6 performs best when worn next to the skin.
The Special 6 features a high pile lined collar to protect against cold wind and there are touch and close attachment points for the Double Pile Hood (sold separately). The neck can be opened up to dump excess heat when working hard but is covered with a storm flap to prevent heat loss when closed. The Special 6 is donned by opening up the side zips, which also double as storm flap protected vents. There are two zipped hand warmer pockets and a large front pouch pocket for maps and other essentials. The waist can be adjusted with a tape and buckle system. Finally the hem is 10cm longer at the back to provide additional protection and prevent the shirt riding up. When purchasing your Special 6 please pay close attention to the size guide. The shirt should be close fitting without being restrictive.
