    Swazi sizing

    Hi Guys,

    Looking at a new jacket, and hard to actually come across to try for fit. How does the sizing run? In theory, I would be a medium in their jacket, just, but some seem to suggest they are quite large for size. I'm around 170cm and about 78kg, so not exactly a monster.

    Any clues?

    I'm 87kg and same height as you and I wear a medium Swazi Tahr, it fits about right, I like to be able to wear stuff under a jacket but I don't like to feel like I'm drowning in a big floppy jacket it you know what I mean?

    Yep you'll be a medium.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    if you can holdoff until Wednesday I will be coming down to our new farm in Leeston so can meet you somewhere if you wanted to throw it on for size. Swazi are real good to deal with anyhow, I'm sure they wouldn't have a problem exchanging for a different size if you feel what you end up with isn't quite right.

    Thanks for the offer, but sounds like medium the go. And what I want is out of stock of course anyway!
