    Yep very good jackets, no issues. They are big tho, not like a typical puffer that can pack down to nothing but then they are a lot stronger than a normal puffer

    An interesting point, guess the heavy duty fabric has its trade off's as well as weight

    Apparently he can make the jackets with a lighter material to make it more compactable. I'm heading to CHCH next Thursday, might get fitted up. @PerazziSC3

    I want it to be practical to take on 4/5 day biv hunts

    Nice and long.... Damn drunk typing. Went for a vest wih collar no hood, impressed wih how small it packs down. Really toasty round a cold hut or running to the long drop!

    I just ordered mine today @223nut @Munsey. He has a version which can compact into one of the pockets. Got the 2 tone hooded version, I've had a heavier waterproof fabric made for the hood and shoulders/sleeves, the body is a lighter fabric.

    Did you guys know he supplies the jackets for the NZ Army? I went to the workshop and got the tour, he's in the process of upgrading his premises.

    No I didn't. Wanting to go into his shop at some point. Love the fact that you can personalise it to your needs. I do notice I don't have sleeves on in when cold but hate them when inside a hut cooking, (feel like Michigan man) I'm sure you will b happy with it

    Great...not as puffy as I thought. I have the Swazi Merino one and too puffy, but not as bad as the cheaper Macpacs and Kathmandhus. I have the Macpac Supanova and it is fantastic.

    Wear on Earth make the Cactus Puffers for them. I had one made a while ago and love it. He made the outer out of a more durable and water proof material that he says is far better than the cactus fabric.

    Yep, Wear On Earth make a cool product. My partner took hers on our winter Alaska trip and it was great - she didn't bother getting a jacket over there just used her Wear On Earth one at temperatures down to -30C.

    I seem to remember that WoE made the Swazi puffers as well as the Cactus ones.
