    Swazi Clothing

    Has anyone got any experience using Swazi gear, have looked at a few options and some of their stuff looks pretty good the shops? I fancy one of the smocks, any feedback from Swazi owners?

    Try the search function on here! There have been a multitude of reviews of this product specifically........ But you won't go wrong with their stuff, it's quality.
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    I have the Tahr, two outer layer fleeces and one mid layer fleece.

    As deerstalker.308 says, it's quality stuff.

    The Tahr is great, but I miss having hand pockets. This is fixed in the latest version I think. I've not had water come in at the cuffs, though others say they have, and I've worn mine in some pretty foul weather. It's certainly breathable.

    I pretty much live in the Swazi fleeces these days.

    What I would say is that, to get the arm length I need, I've had to go for the XXL size rather than XL. But I do have arms like an orang-utang

    I have there wet back pants, and a jacket its really good, it is expensive to start with, but from the people I have met in NZ who use it and I mean really use it day in day out, it seems to stand up to the rigours.

    Hi TC,
    A word of caution,the Swazi jackets do not like Sitka spruce needles,Gorse,Thistles,Heather etc.Quite ironic that the very environment we want to use them in, they seem to fail.
    Had friend who sent his back to Swazi and that was the response..

    Thats an interesting response from them - I've worn mine stalking in heather in D&G and Sutherland, and in thick fir, brambles and thistles down here in the South and not had a problem. It's only Gore-Tex, so I can't see why they would caution use in those conditions when other providers presumably don't.

    Although not goretex it is now Aegis, and in my opinion is better than goretex!
