The Swazi Wapiti Coat is a guaranteed-waterproof, windproof and highly breathable jacket made for the most demanding outdoorsmen. Made from the newly-developed AEGIS fabric in a tasteful Olive Green, the Wapiti is an ideal outer layer for activities like stalking, fishing, canoeing, hunting, hill-walking and general outdoor wear.

Swazi's legendary Tahr XP Anorak has undoubtedly become Ray Mears’ favourite item of clothing in recent years. Those of you looking for the same superior level of wet-weather protection but in a full-zip garment need look no further - the Wapiti Coat is here.

The Wapiti features Swazi's famed hood design, offering excellent peripheral vision while keeping wind and rain at bay. The inner conforms to the contours of your face, while the outer protrudes into an adjustable peak, stiffened with a durable liner and concealed wire-lined frame. Extra comfortable stretch cuffs are concealed behind protective over-sleeves, designed especially for folk who hate cold, icy water running down their elbows! The two roomy cargo pockets are capable of holding a box of shells each, while toasty handwarmer pockets are concealed behind them. An inner map pocket is also included, which is perfect for your valuables.

A windproof, waterproof and breathable membrane, AEGIS is in fact the most breathable fabric ever incorporated into Swazi garments. The three-layered fabric provides absolute protection from rain, snow and wind, and has been proven in independent tests to be every bit as waterproof and windproof as their old fabrics. What these tests also showed was enhanced breathability, a factor so important in any waterproof garment. As always, the Wapiti remains soft, light, incredibly quiet and unbelievably comfortable.

We spent two years developing face fabrics and testing laminates. Once we were sure we had the fabrics and membrane right, we built some test garments and supplied these to our Swazi Test Pilots around the world. The feedback was amazing. 100% satisfaction. Even for us, a company extremely experienced in fabricating protective outdoorwear, the result was unheard of. AEGIS Watershield surpassed our expectations and we are sure they will surpass yours. - Swazi

  I am really happy with the Wapiti coat, great colour and style that I can wear around town not just in the woods. The fit allows for comfortable layering underneath without compromising movement. This is an important because the Wapiti alone will not keep you warm, it is a shell to keep out the rain and wind, but that also means you can wear and work in it when conditions are warm and wet without getting too hot and sweaty, as has been the case in weatherproof jackets I have previously owned. Work colleagues and friends, male and female, comment on how smart the coat looks, that has never happened to me before, although I am a little evasive when questioned about the price. In my opinion it is money well spent, this coat is well made, feels strong and built to last rough treatment, it is also so light you will always pack it unless you're already wearing it. Thank you Woodlore for another great product.

  Cracking coat in every aspect of use, I don't know I am wearing it. It is lightweight and quiet. I also own the Swazi Windriver fleece and can not find a fault with either of the garments.

  Up to now, no complaints. Seems strong. Attention to detail. For now it keeps out the wind, I'm still waiting for the rain.

  This is an excellent outdoors coat. It feels very well made and having now worn it in a good range of conditions including seal watching from a boat I am confident it will continue to keep me warm and dry. The styling makes it equally suitable for wearing in town and the countryside. The large pockets easily hold a pair of binoculars and the hand warmer pockets are very useful. The extra length has proved to be ideal for increased protection from the weather and staying dry sitting down without being too restrictive on the legs. It took me a while to decide to buy this coat which is priced at the higher end of the coat market but I am very happy to recommend it.
