Tahr Anorak

The Swazi® Tahr Anorak is one of our oldest designs and is as relevant today as the day the first one came off the line.  Proven time and time again in the field the Tahr has some great features that have made it the timeless classic that it has become.

  • Made in New Zealand from a three-layer AEGIS® fabric, it’s soft, light, very quiet and of course very waterproof.
  • The hood makes an adjustable peak, stiffened with both a durable liner and a hood wire to enable excellent peripheral vision and exceptional water shedding.
  • The radical upper body design gives amazing freedom of movement.
  • YKK zip with enclosing storm-flap allows for instant temperature & ventilation control.
  • An easy-access, extra large bino pocket with elasticated bullet loops for all those must-have items. The pocket also has a unique drop stitch to allow any collected water to easily drain away.
  • Draw-cord for simple waist adjustments.
  • Touch-tape on soft cuffs ensures sleeves stay where you want them to.
  • Side vents for unrestricted walking and climbing movement.

    Have a camo Tahr Anorak (Yes it’s old). I love it. I waterfowl every weekend all season long. Down south it can sometimes be a tad damp. When that happens it’s the ol Tahr Anorak for me. It’s lasted me well and still going strong.

Fleece Garment Repairs:

Swazi undertake to repair your fleece garment if it has been accidentally torn or damaged, free of charge, for the natural life of that garment while under recreational use. (Yep, you read that right). This warranty is subject to the garment being repairable and applies to the fleece fabric components of the garment only.

If you perforate or rip your Aegis® garment, please contact your retailer or Swazi for a repair quotation. There is a small charge for all Aegis® repairs - this will be discussed with you once your garment has been assessed.

Zip Repairs:

Should you damage a zip in your garment you can send it back to us for a replacement zip. There is a charge for this service of $30 per zip. If the zip has failed due to a manufacturing fault then we will replace it at no charge. Can't say fairer than that...

Repairs Process:

  • Wash and dry your garment (we really don't want your blood and guts in our nice clean manufacturing room).
  • Complete the Garment Repair Form

Please note that if the garment is not washed or accompanied by the Postage & Packing fee then it will not be repaired. And Davey said if you send us a filthy garment with blood or cow poop all over it, he'll put a dog turd in the pocket before it's sent back to you. Honest, he did say that.

We often get asked the same questions about our products and services, so the most common ones are right here:

  1. How do I contact Swazi?
  2. How do I order on your website?
  3. Where can I get a Cattledog?
  4. How do I find a store near me?
  5. What's the Swazi Warranty?
  6. Where do I send my gear back for repair?
  7. My gear has lost some of it's water repellency - what can I do?
  8. How do I know what size I need?
  9. How do I clean my Aegis® jacket?
  10. What does 'waterproof' mean?
  11. Why am I getting wet?

1. How do I contact Swazi?

Swazi is based in Levin, New Zealand - where we design and make all of our gear. Get in touch with our people during office hours Monday - Friday 8.30am - 5pm (New Zealand time). If you want to send us something: Swazi Apparel Limited, 94 Oxford St, PO Box 567 Levin, New Zealand Ph. +64 6 368 4822 Fx. +64 6 367 9246 E-mail: service@swazi.co.nz

2. How do I order on your website?

Click on the product menu to view our product section pages, add items to a shopping cart and then proceed to the secure payment section of the site. No brainer.

3. Where can I get a Cattledog?

Email us at service@swazi.co.nz and we'll get one in the post to your. But please note that all the product information (minus the stories) that is in the Cattledog is on our website.

4. How do I find a store near me?

We only sell our products through the very best retailers - we're very selective about who we have representing our gear! Find out where your nearest store is by clicking on the Swazi Stockists section or click here for the quick link.

5. What is the Swazi Warranty?

All Swazi garments are unconditionally warranted against faulty fabric and workmanship. We reserve the right to repair or replace at our discretion. We have a specific page for more details on our Warranty and repairs and returns policies here.

6. How do I send my gear back for repair?

Sadly, even astoundingly amazing Swazi garments occasionally require repairs. As a New Zealand based manufacturer we are one of only a few retailers who offer a repair service on our garments. You need to have a look at our Repairs page and follow the instructions there.

7. My gear has lost some of it's water repellency - what can I do?

The simplest way to restore DWR (Durable Water Repellency) is to tumble dry or iron your garment. DWR is the ability of water to bead up and roll off the outer fabric instead of being absorbed. It's an ultra thin treatment that changes the surface tension of the garment and can be easily restored by applying heat. Over time the DWR will require replacing due to flex, abrasion and dramatic temperature changes. Use a fluoropolymer based water repellent spray-on treatment available at outdoor shops. We recommend Grangers XT spray.

8. How do I know what size I need?

Every individual product page has a link to our size chart.

9. How do I clean my Aegis® jacket?

It is very important to wash your Aegis® outerwear regularly to maintain it's performance. Before laundering, always consult your garment's care label to be completely sure. Machine wash separately on warm (40°C) using pure soap, double rinse and spin. We recommend pure soap products as they are less likely to leave a residue that will affect the Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish. Don't use bleach or fabric softener. Pre-wash stain removers can be used to treat stains on your garment. Treat stains as quickly as possible for best results. Ensure your garment is rinsed well after washing. Re-treat with DWR finish when required. Tumble Dry on a warm setting (55°C) until dry. Heat from the tumble dryer helps to enhance the Durable Water Repellency on the surface of the outer fabric - as it is heat activated. Tumble drying is recommended, however, ironing on the lowest steam setting will achieve a similar result. Dry cleaning is recommended for well used, dirty, sweaty and stained garments. Occasional dry cleaning won't harm the Aegis® membrane and thoroughly cleans your garment. Ask your dry cleaner to use clear solvent and to apply a fluoropolymer based water repellency treatment to the outer fabric.

10. What does waterproof mean?

Waterproof means exactly that - waterproof. A product is either waterproof or it isn't. You can't make a product that is 'more waterproof'. You can however make a product that is 'more water resistant'. Water resistance is not water-proofness. Water resistance means that the product will resist water up to a point, then will begin to compromise. Waterproof means that the product is waterproof - no water, no compromise. Swazi products are waterproof.

11. Why am I getting wet?

The first question is are you feeling wet or just cold? If you are just cold it usually means that the outer fabric is wetting-out and is absorbing water. Often just washing and drying the jacket will solve this problem. If you are still having wetting-out issues then an application of DWR (Durable Water Repellancy) is usually the solution. We recommend Grangers XT spray however you can ask your local dry cleaner to use clear solvent and to apply a fluoropolymer based water repellent to the outer fabric. If you are getting wet inside the jacket there can be two reasons why - the most common is that the pores in the Aegis® membrane are blocked preventing perspiration from escaping from the garment. The vapours collect and condense then soak into your layer under your jacket causing you to feel wet. Often a good wash and dry to clean the outer fabric and the membrane will solve this problem. Less commonly there may be minuscule holes in the membrane. Swazi AEGIS® fabrics are very waterproof and incredibly durable, however, like ALL fabrics they are not indestructible or bulletproof. They can be punctured by sharp objects like barbed wire or spiky vegetation and when the fabric is punctured it will leak. Mostly these tiny puncture holes are not visible to the human eye, but can be detected in our water testing lab. Our advice is be extremely careful of sharp objects - the general rule is if it can pierce the skin on the palm of your hand then it can also pierce the membrane in your garment. If you are getting wet inside your jacket and a thorough wash has not improved the issue then send it in to us for testing. Our Customer Services team will let you know lickety-split what the issue may be.
