  Pile and Pertex offers a practical alternative to layering for serious activists. Pile gives the garment warmth and extremely high wicking properties while Pertex keeps out the wind and acts as the final wicking layer, allowing sweat to spread out and evaporate from as large a surface as possible. This all adds up to a piece of gear which is windproof, water resistant, fast drying, and warm as a sheep's bum. Ventilation is essential in this stuff as it is warm; so side zips and mesh lined pockets are the order of the day.

The best known pile and Pertex comes in the form of the Buffalo Special 6 Shirt and is great for all types of winter mountain work. It has also become popular with kayakers and canoeists, because it'll still keep you warm even when soaking wet. Handy if you fall in a river! If Buffalo invented the pile and Pertex system, then Montane have been carrying it forward ever since. They call their inner pile Dryactiv 3000 and is a bit thicker than Buffalo's, and use a rugged Pertex 6 outer.
