Swazi tahr is brilliant but I also like my ridge line smock for a woodland stalk, you moving slowly so should not be sweeting if you are something up

Buy the best because if you dont you will never be happy and dont forget the old adage, buy cheap buy twice. I'd like the money back iv'e wasted over the years by

skimping. Not any more, when i'm out shooting or out with the dogs i want to be warm dry and comfortable. I buy good boots too.

I have a selection of jackets and smocks including Harkilla Musto Swazi and more but I regularly choose my Ridgeline Monsoon 2 smock. I think it's each to there own and depending on your needs.

I dont know whats the best because each individual is different, whats suits one might not suit another. But my next jacket will be a Swazi.

Iv'e had Musto and it leaked so would not buy another others swear by them. Lowa boots for me.

If its the one made of Ventile, its a good material, but goes as stiff as a board when its wet

Paramo velez very light breathable and waterproof, used with right layers it's unbeatable at the price too be fair we don't get that many days where you would need much more,
