Swazi Nahanni Shirt - Tussock Green


Brand: Swazi
Weight: 1090 g         17 reviews
The Swazi Nahanni Shirt is one of those garments that is so simply brilliant that it makes you wonder why it hasn't been around for longer. Fortunately, Swazi have stepped forward and created this classic outdoor shirt that will no doubt become one of your go-to garments for cold conditions.

For those who love the warmth and comfort of polar fleece but need that extra bit of protection from the wind, the Nahanni is for you. An over-the-head smock, the Nahanni has the edge over standard fleeces thanks to the excellent addition of a windproof lining to the torso and back, as well as an extra long shape to keep the wind out. An added bonus are the windproof hand-warmer pockets, one with rivetted radio antenna easement channel, plus has an opening within the jacket to allow microphone access.

Other features include Swazi's legendary high peripheral-vision hood, which can be adjusted or completely detached. The cuffs can be tightened for a snug fit, while the waistband can be adjusted thanks to a drawstring hidden away inside the hand-warmer pocket.

Named after the South Nahanni River in the Northwest Territories of Canada, the superb natural tone of the tussock green fabric provides a neutral colour that is perfect for hunting, fishing or just being outdoors.

  I really love this. Very warm, a good fit - the size is spot on - and well made. I've worn it most days since I received it and it doesn't feel restrictive or cumbersome and it feels lighter to wear than it really is. If I lost it I would get another one without hesitation.

  I would just like to say that the customer service from Woodlore is second to none. What can I say that hasn't been already stated about the Nahanni. Superb quality again coming from Swazi. Size is perfect for layering as they come up a little bit bigger. All in all extremely happy.

  Great Smock for cold weather! I was looking for a thinner winter jacket, as I wanted more freedom of movement. The idea was to put an additional tweed vest over it for extra warmth during the long cold hours on the high seat. The Nahanni Smock proved to be the perfect choice. The customer service from Ray Mears was also top notch, as I had some questions before buying it. Thanks again!

  Unparalleled quality from SWAZI! Have now been testing the Nahanni in minus 30 dgrs C and this shirt keeps you warm and toasty as a second layer in these low temps. I will believe it’ll be too warm for summer use plus 15 dgrs C. Supreme craftsmanship and nice with a garment signed by the craftsman who made it inside. Hood very good with ”sleek” lining and wire inside the brim of the hood.

  Perfect for chilly days. Bomb proof when combined with the Tahr XP. Also functions wonderfully as a sleeping bag for an 8 year old. Fantastic quality and great service as always.

  I already have a Tahr Anorak and it's never let me down, absolutely brilliant. The Nahanni arrived not that long ago but I've used it already and all I have to say is: Get one.

  I already owned a couple of Swazi products (both bought from Woodlore) and highly rated them so there wasn't a lot of hesitation when I saw the Nahanni Shirt for the first time. I did have a couple of questions before buying and after phoning Woodlore my mind was made up. It turned up pretty quickly and I've been very happy with it. It's a very warm top and the hand warming pockets are a nice touch. I also find the removable hood handy as when worn under a waterproof jacket I'm not a fan of multiple hoods. It also comes up quite long which is nice when pulling up a cold log whilst having a break. In summary I've had quite a few dealings with Woodlore and I own three Swazi items of clothing now and I really can't fault any of them! The Nahanni is a great product and I'd highly recommend it.

  Usual Swazi quality, good combination of feeling light around the arms when working but good weight and wind proof protection around the core body area. No drafts up my back; being 63 I find a lot of garments ride up at the back. Excellent hood; not too much of it, but just enough. I had a good coastal stomp and got a bit of a sweat on, but didn't get a chill, so the fleece breathes very well. If I had to be picky the arms are a tad short for my size, but makes sense when I put the Swazi Narwhal over the top. It could do with a keeper button when the sleeves are not tightened down, so the tag doesn't flap about, but then another press fit button would make the lightweight sleeves feel cumbersome I'm sure. Overall it's an amazing fleece and very smart and presentable around town too, which is a hard look to pull off with proper outdoor wear.

  I bought this item as an under layer for my shooting jacket. From placing the order to receiving it, less than 24hrs passed. Excellent customer services in my mind relates to products that are worth spending a little extra cash on. This garment is nothing less. As soon as I unwrapped the item, I could feel the quality. It' got a lovely feel to it, and once on, you can feel the quality in the fit. The zips both to the front and around the neck for the included hood are very strong and very easy to grasp. The best part I like is the length. Its a perfect match for my jacket and provides just what I am looking for to complement my outer jacket in warmth and feel. I just wish my outer jacket was a Swazi Tahr. Perhaps one day I will be able to stretch to one of those also. In the meantime I will enjoy this lovely product. 10/10
