I know they appear to be similar to Buffalo products but having never had them either I can't comment.
If anyone has any comments, positive or negative, I would be intrigued to hear.

Never really had a problem with sweating and wetting out the garment which means it must be working correctly.

I have used it in Baltic cold conditions with just a L/S tee shirt underneath. It was very comfortable. There are very good venting options. The build quality is good and it feels comfortable to wear.
I believe Alpkit have it discounted at the moment. I would certainly recommend it.
I did have a Buffalo 6 many years ago. Think it is a bit thinner than the Buffalo, but, scores well with the hood.

I take it, it will be pretty much similar to the Alpkit and Buffalo ones. I have to say I’m impressed with it, I don’t know about not wearing a base layer underneath though. Each to their own I guess.
My only grumble is Mrs LLW knows that I am normally an XL in jackets and tops, but for Montane I normally need to size up. It’s a bit of a faff getting on and off, I think an XXL would have fitted me better.
But all said, first impressions are very favourable 👍
