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
