The Buffalo Special 6 Shirt is one of my absolute favourite items of outdoor clothing.
Being comfortable outdoors in all conditions requires you to keep warm and dry. The principle of layering is well known.
Rather than one thick layer, you wear many thin layers in order to regulate your temperature during the day and remove moisture from your body.
Also each layer has it’s unique place in the system. A base layer to wick sweat away quickly is donned first, followed by a thin form of insulation such as shirt or fleece. Depending on the conditions a light wind-shirt can be used followed by a waterproof jacket.
This layering system gives you a huge amount of flexibility to alter your clothing to match the changing conditions.
But what if one layer could do all that?
