/ Buffalo Teclite Shirt
Thinking of getting one as a catch all top for general mucking about, very cold runs, and mountain biking.
A friend has an old one and uses it for everything from ski touring, running, biking to climbing. Very similar in performance to the old Rab VR but more wind-proof and cooler the the new Rab VR's. It's a lot cooler than the Buffalo Shirts BTW!
A good bit of durable and versatile kit, though Buffalo is now out of fashion with many less experienced non professional outdoor users...
Way beyond the age where fashion is key. I just want to be comfortable without buggering about...
That's just my experience, and I may have been unlucky or I'm just a very odd shape.
My "go-to" outdoor top, much to my son's horror. Light enough to be comfortable when walking, scrambling or climbing; excellent venting options; sleeves can be pushed up; really useful pouch pocket which can easily take OS maps; half decent hood; windproof up to about 25 mph; washes easily I just vary the base layer according to the time of year and, oh yes, too warm for summer wear.
I was recommended the top by some of my students who frequented the moors of south-west England doing fieldwork and I've never regretted the purchase. I just wish they did the shirt in something other than black!

I use the Rab VR smock and would use the Buffalo Teclite next to my skin as it works best that way and I don't have to bugger about with extra layers too...
