    If its guns, tits or tyres it's going to cost you lots of money

    I didnt know swazi made these. The one I had when I had was not the best and not that waterproof. Was good for light rain but leaked like a sivv with anything more.
    But this could be better, you never know, the army may have brought kit that is actually good and not from the cheapest seller.

    It depends on how thrashed they have been... my one doesn't leek in down pours, Leggings leek where it rubs against the bike tank... but that is acceptable

    I think you van treat them or so I have been told but not sure how

    I got given one off an army mate. Leaks round the shoulders like a mofo, in fact it is absolutely useless to say the least. I sprayed a whole can of some so called water proofing agent all over the jacket and it didnt even help. I would love to know what to use to get it water proof again so if anybody has any ideas? Im about to cover it in the crap you coat oilskins in, hope that works as they will be very good jackets if they keep the water out.

    I used mine to work in for years.

    they breath well. and mine kept the water out

    it would progressivly sneak in up the sleaves tho but that cant be avoided.

    the tahr anorac is the go tho

    Bit of geek info but the older ones were actually made by Kathmandu
