Swazi’s bestselling Tahr XP anorak has won the ‘New Clothing Product’ category at the 2017 Time Inc. Shooting Industry Awards held at Mercure Brandon Hall Hotel in Coventry, on Thursday 11 May.
The prestigious annual awards recognise the UK shooting industry’s achievements and innovations throughout the previous year. Entries to the ‘New Clothing Product’ award were assessed on quality, design sales success, customer recommendation and innovation.
Shooting Times editor Patrick Galbraith was one of the judges. He commented: “The Swazi Tahr XP is really the benchmark in practical wet weather gear. It’s 100% waterproof and windproof, yet remarkably light and very breathable. I borrowed its predecessor, the Tahr, some years ago from a keeper when I was grouse beating, and was hugely impressed. We also reckon it’s pretty stylish in a functional sort of way.”
Named after the Himalayan Tahr, which has specially adapted to life on rugged mountain slopes, the Tahr XP anorak is the perfect outer layer for hunting in the most challenging weather and terrain. Made in New Zealand at Swazi’s factory nestled under the Tararua Mountains, the Tahr XP has proven itself a trustworthy partner in the field for hunters who need exceptional performance from their gear.
