    The Buffalo DP System
    Buffalo originated the first single-layer clothing system, which we called the DP System. 
    DP stands for Double P as in Pertex and Pile. 
    To be comfortable in adverse conditions you need to be dry and warm.
    The concept behind the Buffalo DP System is to keep the wearer comfortable  no matter what nature has in store. 
    Moisture causes chilling – so rain and perspiration need to be kept away from the skin.
    To do this clothing must repel moisture from the outside, whilst eliminating it on the inside.
    Whilst insulating the wearer from the cold, the fibre pile fabric lining wicks moisture away from the body onto the outer shell.
    This densely woven fabric then disperses the moisture over its surface area, where it evaporates.
    In turn a micro climate is created within the garment – where overheating is controlled through the venting of side zips.
