    Swazi gear...

    A continual source of interest... kit. Any members had experience of the NZ kit Swazi ?

    Got a Swazi Tahr smock, had it for 7 years now, excellent on the open hill, lack of pockets can be a bit of a pain! bit warm to wear on lowland ground, very light, worth the money.

    My coat is about 15 years old and is still going strong :-)
    Its strong, lightweight and silent.
    I wish I'd bought 2 or 3 !!
    Regards. Phil

    many thanks. just watching a program about a guy living with a pack of wolves in north, way north, canada... cannot see what he's using! i have old scandi field coat(s) with goretex... soak up the rain and get too heavy... Blatting at birds obviously diff to sitting in a bog or crawling thru one. Harkila pro-hunter pants, great kit but blooming pricey!

    I did find my Tahr smock very warm, I also found that although the cuffs were tight and supposed to be waterproof if you wore a cotton top underneath the water would soak throught the cuff na up your sleeve. Good hood for a shooting jacket also.

    I have the Tahr jacket, several fleece bush shirts, a couple of the micro t-shirts, the micro driback pants, a couple of hats......yes, I like it.

    I find it hard to fault their kit and their customer service is excellent. Have to pay import duty 75% of the time, but even so it's still great value.

    Join Club Swazi and they'll send you a NZD 20 voucher on your birthday.

    It good stuff, I got the most of my gear when I was over there. The exchange rate was in our favour so it was cheap to buy. Not sure I would buy it at the UK prices.

    I wish I had bought the Tahr XP long before I did as its a much improved design with the chest pockets over the older model.
    I wouldn't be without it. Just a baselayer underneath when its warm and I never have "boiled in the bag" and I do run hot.

    I also own a few other items & the Nahanni fleece smock is another brilliant item. Great for cold fresh days or under the Tahr when the weather is really crap of sitting in a highseat.

    The Bush pants are very hard wearing and quick drying, as are the Micro dry backs, but the only criticism of the dry backs is they are a bit noisier than the Bush pants due to the liner on the seat and it does annoy me a little when stalking, otherwise, first class products.

    Think I'll treat myself to the Wapiti jacket later on in the year but I can only say positive things about Swazi
