British made, high performance Outdoor Clothing and Sleeping Bags for the serious outdoor activist.
Buffalo was formed in Sheffield over 30 years ago by a mountaineer and product designer who conceived what is now known as the Buffalo Systems clothing and sleeping bag concept. A small, tight-knit team of outdoor enthusiasts were then gathered together from many different outdoor backgrounds.
The team first started making sleeping bags and took inspiration from a community thousands of miles from South Yorkshire. To keep warm, the Inuit use animal hide with the fur on the inside. This increases warmth and allows moisture laden air to circulate and escape through the porous hide. Even in heavy rain, and after vigorous exercise, the Inuit's skin remains dry and safe from freezing. Taking this concept on board, Buffalo was born and became concerned with comfort from the inside rather than waterproofness from the outside.
The company now sells across the UK, Europe and beyond. Its clothes are sold to hill walkers, climbers and fishermen, but the brand is also held in high regard by those in the military, fire service and mountain rescue teams.
