Hi there, thought I'd pop on here and ask for some advice as I trust forces chaps over civilians. I'm president of a mountaineering society at a certain university. I've used Buffalo kit since being recommended it by an MIA trained Belgian soldier and a few forces guys I know. I got drenched through in a 200 quid hardshell in Scotland and have never used them since. On bad weather walks during the winter I tend to use a Buffalo Special six and carry a Buffalo jacket plus a cheapo mac incase it really hits the fan. However my climbing manager who the university employs and oversees what I do, recently blasted my kit. Telling me that I need a proper hardshell and that "Buffalo kit is awful, it'll get you killed and laughed at if you ever do your ML summer". Needless to say I'm not happy. I trust the stuff but I don't want my name in the newspapers if something ever goes wrong and my climbing manager sells me out saying that my kit wasn't up to scratch. Personally I'd rather quit the position than be pushed around. Any thoughts would be great, thanks!
