    Medium Swazi Tahr XP - For Sale

    Just got out of Fiordland, the jacket turned up 2 days before I went in. Turns out it was too small....

    I am a tall (6'2") skinny fella so when I ordered based on chest size (medium), it turns out it was a touch short in the neck so when I put my pack on and had the hood up it puts a bit of weight on my neck resulting in an sore neck... Totally awesome jacket otherwise, I love the design and the had warmer pockets. Will get another custom one when I can afford it.

    Worn on one trip and will be wash once tonight as per instructions.

    Yep I have the same problem (giraffe neck) when Swazi were doing the army stuff the army jackets had a longer neck and was adjustable. I suggested that they do this on all their civy rain coats but never happened. I have a hunters element XTR now it has a longer neck as standard.

    I really like the Swazi material though, not so keen on the Hunters Elements if its the one I'm thinking of... Thanks though, I will have another look if this sells...

    Sorry no thanks am after the cash to put towards another....

    RRP is $599.99 so you would be getting a basically new jacket for $149.99 cheaper! I'll even through in the labels....

    Sorry to ask probably a dumb question; what size is this? I am typically an L-XL and need something like this.
