    Yup seen the new lightweight thar at the field days. Looks good. Very lightweight shell in the same style. Won’t be as tough but be great for tops hunting.

    Is it not just a rifleman? Called a lightweight tahr for a different market?

    Na its the Thar anorak style with a lightweight non brushed fabric if its the one that Im thinking of. I doubt the quality will be compromised, Davie seems pretty onto it in that regard. If thats what the crowd wants they would be silly not to follow.

    The original goretex tahr is a non brushed finish and quite a bit lighter than the aegis ones but still tough, I would say this will be light weight aegis only similar to the likes of the Kuiu rain shell gear (Look at it the wrong way and it will tear...)

    Ooh yeah but swazi hugely different price piece in comparison.

    I would imagine it to be more along the lines of the Yukon?

    I like the weight of my wapiti though, makes it feel more cosy.

    The one tough mother coat I brought last year is crap it leaks All ready and is way lighter than my older one that did 7 years of service.
