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 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
