Cult New Zealand clothing brand Swazi Apparel is renowned for its tough, practical, comfy clothing and its Nahanni polar fleece smock is no exception, with the added bonus of being incredibly quiet, making it ideal for stealthy hunting trips.
Named after the South Nahanni River in the remote Northwest Territories of Canada, the super-warm over-the-head smock is made of Swazi’s legendary 350gsm polar fleece and is superbly effective at keeping you warm when it matters thanks to its windproof lining in the front and back of the torso. Its long shape means your back stays toasty too, especially when sitting still in cold conditions, and also ensures sneaky draughts don’t find their way down the waistband of your trews to chill your nether regions.
The Nahanni also features lined windproof handwarmer pockets to keep your fingers from freezing and seizing, meaning you can dial your scope with ease, plus Swazi’s cleverly designed removable wired and lined hood ensures you have great peripheral vision at all times so you won’t miss your quarry. Adjustable cuffs with two stud fasteners keep your wrists snug while side vents at the hem enable ease of movement for those scrambles up the mountain.
Available in black, olive or tussock green colours, the quick-drying Nahanni works perfectly as a mid-layer under Swazi’s famous Tahr jacket and can also double as a pillow or cushion on camping trips or hunting expeditions where a minimum of kit is required.
Davey Hughes, founder of Swazi and the original Swaziman, comments: “Swazi customers tell me they virtually live in their Nahanni smocks which stand out from the crowd for being practical, versatile and extremely easy to Sitka is a new premium clothing line that we look forward to seeing a lot more of as time rolls on, and as they’re based in Denmark they have all the bloodlines of yet another fine range. wear. This smock has had rave reviews from many avid hunters and once you’ve tried one I guarantee you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it!”
