Inspired by the earliest generations of synthetic pile jackets that revolutionised the mountaineering industry, the TAD Shag Master is a unique insulation piece that continues to elude the masses. With its distinctive shaggy appearance and appropriately mischievous name, this jacket redefines your idea of creature comfort. It'll be your go-to jacket when decompressing after a long day above eleven thousand feet, exploring the dark woods or belaying your climbing partner. Give in to the fuzziness and unleash your beast.
*NOTE THESE ARE PATCHED VERSIONS*.


Features:


  • Winter Warrior:


Designed as an insulation jacket, the Shag Master is made from Polartec Thermal Pro High Loft. This super soft fabric minimizes heat loss when you’re at a stand-still while letting air pass through to keep you cool when you’re in action. The optimal warmth-to-weight ratio provides unrivalled compressibility for those times you have big plans but little space. Integrated thumb holes provide partial hand coverage, while reinforced elbows strengthen the Shag's ability to withstand hard use.



  • Creature Comfort:


Tailored to layer comfortably under TAD’s Stealth Hoodie LT, the Shag Master features an active fit in an effort to reduce the material's tendency to fit big, but the cut ensures there is enough room to move and layer when necessary. The natural softness of the Shag is enhanced by top stitches along all of the seams to keep them flattened and low profile when layering up. Updated media port pass-throughs utilize breaks in the material, instead of plastic guides, to reduce bulk while still cleanly routing headphones without snags or obstructions.



  • Clean Fit & Finish:


With the latest Shag Master Hoodie, TAD spent time improving the construction of the hoodie's fit and finish, including their traditional grosgrain ribbon zipper pulls and a full brush mesh panel sewn in from seam to seam behind the front pockets. The result of the mesh panel is a clean and comfortable interior finish. They also upgraded the Shag with their new three-piece hood. The shape encompasses your head to keep you protected from the elements without obstructing full visual range. The hood also has a reinforced, durable nylon brim to keep water away from your face. The nylon chin flap was built to lay comfortably against your neck with a clean aesthetic that won’t snag during zipper movement.

    Great hoody,

    Posted by Treblenine on 26th Oct 2019

    Really love this hoody.. my only gripe, is the main zip should have been a bit chunkier, it's a bit finicky initially zipping it up and taking it off.. perhaps over time it will get easier with use...

    Amazing piece

    Posted by Wally on 2nd Jun 2019

    I bought mine a couple years ago, did some serious outdoor extreme things with it.
    Brecon beacons, winter snow storm in Scotland, trips to the Alps and Black forest in some deadly weather and it still looks like new. Toasty but enough ventilated to keep you warm all the time....

    The shagmaster

    Posted by Huskydog on 17th Apr 2019

    Well after years of debate I have eventually bought the legendary tad shagmaster. I have other polar high loft fleece jackets but I'm sure this high loft fleece is of longer pile length. Build quality is fantastic as can be expected for a garment of this price.
    I'm about 6ft tall with a 42" chest and went for a size large as I wanted a slightly lose feel to the jacket, arm length is exactly right.
    Transaction went great calling to the building to see the item before purchase. As always very friendly and helpful staff.
    The fleece is extremely warm and compressible but if you want to wear it on a windy day you will need a windproof over the top as to make it so warm and compressible it will pass wind through the fleece fabric,this isn't a complaint as i knew this before the purchase.
    The only reason I didn't give full marks for the item is the very high price, however it is a fantastic bit of kit that I always wanted.

    This is not an expensive garment, honestly.

    Posted by MinistryOfTruth on 14th Apr 2019

    These are practically indestructible.

    Works well as outer layer in humid chilly winds and light rain and even dry snowy weather down to -20C (if you have decent mid and - merino base layer). It keeps drizzle and even light rain out. Comfortably warm but not hot, not even under a surplus ECWS parka with liner.

    Winter, spring, parts of summer and fall, this is my go to garment. I wear mine around 9 months a year at least 4 days a week.

    Mine is around five years old and it looks and feels almost new.
    Other fleeces for around the same money dont survive that long, not without looking chewed up and ragged, not without holes and being worn paper thin around shoulders and lumbar area.

    Notice i didn't write fleeces of the same quality because i doubt there are any, not unless you pay way over double the price.

    This one combined with a low budget hardshell or windbreaker outperform and outlive far more expensive and famous brand combo jackets of heat+shell variety.

    Just get one, you'll love it.

    Good stuff

    Posted by Stuart on 7th Nov 2018

    Extremely pleased with Heinnie's service on this one...Nick was extremely helpful in assisting me with getting the right size. Very pleased with the quality and fit of it. I'm 5'10" 45" chest and the L fitted a treat. Haven't used it in anger yet, but the weight of it suggests it'll be toasty!

    Does what it says on the tin

    Posted by Rab on 11th Mar 2018

    I bought this elsewhere and had to leave a note for anyone thinking about it.
    Beautifully warm, looks great and will, in fact, allow you to become a shag master.

    Snap it up.

    Confidence in your supplier.

    Posted by Stu on 4th May 2017

    Today I took delivery of my T.A.D shagmaster and,as usual,I was very pleased with the quality of the item AND the service I received which,at Heinnie Haynes is second to none. It's very comforting to know that you get what you pay for thanks to the scrupulous vetting that goes into what HH sells. I have dealt with HH now for a good number of years and have NEVER had to return an item or had an item fail or disappoint me. A BIG Thankyou. Stu.

    Worth every penny

    Posted by William on 12th Apr 2017

    I have wanted a shagmaster ever since I saw a friend with one. Just had mine delivered so I am sitting in my office with it on. £220 seems like allot of money for a fleece but this is worth every penny. Save them up and buy one. Thank you to the charming and helpful people at HH.
    Happy Christmas
