Anyone using Buffalo clothing on the bike?
Get a Montane Extreme Jacket. A better, more modern verion of the Buffalo and I’ve used both. Better than the Montane Extreme Smock (which I also have), easier to ventilate and wear and just shrugs off the cold. Only to be worn riding when properly freezing and only over a wicking base layer.Posted 4 years agodazhSubscriber
My Buffalo mountain shirt is the single best bit of outdoor clothing I’ve ever had. 10 years old now and still going strong. Too hot for the bike though as others have said unless it’s well below zero. Perfect for winter walking, climbing and general hanging about in sh*tty and cold weather.Posted 4 years agoSuggseyMember
Used my Buffalo Special 6 shirt in 3 foot snow with no baselayer cutting wind and minus temps and even with side zips fully open was too hot. Guess thats why they came out with the Techlite Cycle jacket. I personally love and use a Rab Generator smock, pertex shell and primaloft filled so stays warm even if wetted out. Worn with a base layer its good for static -14C and wind chill of riding on top!Posted 4 years agoesselgruntfuttockMember
Windshirt user here. Had the same one since….I dunno, 1994 maybe…
Couple of years ago but on the wrong bike…
Wore it last Monday too, got soaked as It’s not even spit proof. Toatally windproof & breathable though.Posted 4 years ago
I’ll look at the Cycle Shirt, Teclite and Activelite shirts.
Will have a look at the Montane stuff too, thank you.
I think it was a Mountain Shirt I had years ago – I remember I liked it, but not much else about it, tbh. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Do seem to remember it only got used in winter.discoduckMember
Me too for Mountain shirt, I’ve worn these in the arctic for several winters and they are great bits of kit, a bit too thermal for biking tho ? Have you looked at some of the Paramo stuff ?
Equally as good if not a bit better suited to biking as some or most of their kit has scalloped back hems to keep ya bum warm ?
I keep mine the back of my Landy just in case I have to go stand on a hard shoulder ???????Posted 4 years agonick1962Member

TooTall how is the sizing on the Montane Extreme? I should be a small but I’ve a Montane Featherlite but had to go for a medium as the small was just a little too tight across the shoulders on the bike. The jacket isn’t for the bike it’s for the Sunday standing watching my son play football while I get hypothermia days!
karnali thanks for the link that looks like a good deal.Posted 4 years ago
