Just got my Swazi hoodie back from the tailor. Fits perfect now.
If you have a broad upper body, I'd opt for the larger size if you're on the fence.

I’m about to jump on the Swazi bandwagon A any of y’all wear a Medium? I’m 5’10” and 175 and thinking that’ll be the right size.

I'd go L personally. I am 5'6" 175 and the L is a hair long but fits great in the chest and shoulders. I was going to go M too but remembered it would be like $20 to ship back to NZ lol

I am just going to have my gma hem the bottom a hair so it's not as long.

Since I’m here to help everyone blow money, this little birds beak is the cats meow for caping the head out of game in the field. Bears, deer etc, it gets into the tight spaces around the antlers, if you hit a tooth you didn’t just mess up your meat knife. Weight is almost nothing.

There’s a lot of places priced at $12-14, but a google search of Victorinox Birds Beak will find them for around $5. Great for peeling vegetables also.

Where do you get sheaths for these Victorinox knives?

I built a kydex press out of two short 2x6 pieces and that cheap puzzle piece standing pad. Heat it up to 275 in the oven on a sheet for about 10 min, then wrap it and clamp it for 5 min.

Once it cools down, I trim it to size with sheet metal shears, sand sand the edges with a dremel. I’ve used both paracord and rivets to close them up. The rivet kit really isn’t worth it if you are only doing a couple. I’ve been learning to make knives so I figured I better learn kydex too, so I bought a rivet press.

I went direct through swazi. I think the exchange rate put it at about $62 with shipping.
I have tried three times to order this dang thing. I even gave my bank a heads up on the second go-round. It declines my card and then shuts my card down for 24 hours. I'm assuming its an error on the banks end, not putting the note through. Did ya'll have issues ordering international?

That'll be your bank's fraud policy. Some banks won't allow international orders, unless in person.
Prepaid Visa cards are awesome for this.

I’m 5’7” 180, used to be built like a fire hydrant, but got bit of dad bod now.. the medium fits me perfect with base layer and long sleeve under.. once it’s on..not bad going on, but little tough coming off.. fits excellant while moving around, not tight, and doesn’t look like a nigh gown..depends on how you like your gear to fit.

Thank you! You just saved me some return shipping. I couldn't have described my build better. I usually run in sizes between a whiskey barrel and a "fire hydrant".

....now all I need to do is sit back and wait for the credit card statement to come in so I can be placed back in the dog house for purchasing yet another hunting top.

Im fortunate that its christmas season and my father in law is exactly one size smaller than me. So if it fits it was roughly $53. If its too small its a gift for him and ill get the next size up 🤣

Ordered the hood this afternoon. Already have tracking from swazi. You're getting your money's worth for the shipping!

Thanks for the input - I’ve got a medium and a large inbound. Whichever one doesn’t fit will end up in the Classifieds!
