The new Tahr Ultralite from Swazi is described as the ultimate lightweight shell jacket, weighing in at a mere 484 grams (17 ounces) yet still capable of repelling rain and wind. The garment underwent rigorous field tests in some of the harshest of environments worldwide, from New Zealand’s Southern Alps to Alaska’s Kodiak Island and the Himalayas. Made from Swazi’s proprietary AEGIS® strata fabric, which incorporates a mechanical stretch, if this jacket gets snagged on a branch it has more give, making it more tear-resistant. Plus the added benefit of being able to be rolled up tightly into its own hood makes it compact and lightweight for travelling. Its hood is based on the Swazi’s award-winning Tahr XP, which provides amazing peripheral vision. It also includes all-new cord stoppers, to keep them out of the way so there’s no risk of them getting caught. With two hand-warmer chest pockets and elasticated cuffs, this jacket is set up to keep hunters as protected from the elements as possible. The jacket’s longer and heavy weight tail features an elasticated shock cord, so there is no chance of getting a soggy bum, and in extreme conditions the wearer can pull in the bottom of the jacket for added protection. Available from S to 3XL in Sage Green and Alpine Stone.
