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.

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.

These are the Patched version of the TAD Shag Master

    Shagmaster

    Posted by MarkyB on 3rd Jul 2021

    Simply one of the best items of clothing I have ever bought. This top is always at hand for me - Just grab it and go. And what makes it even better is the Raptor right over the top in bad weather. It looks simple, but trust me it is not. I am lucky to have lots of TAD gear, and I love it all, but the shagmaster is the best. A work of genious. It will become part of you.

    Tad Shag Master

    Posted by Greg on 21st May 2021

    The usual TAD fit, very comfey, good quality workmanship. This old school, very heavy, pile fleace, let's cold wind and rain through, soaks water like a sponge and takes forever to dry. During any physical activity, it gets extremely hot under a shell, to the point that you will boil to death in your own sweat. The hood, like the fabric is old school, flopping around in the wind, restricting your vision, with no adjustment to keep it under control. Putting thumb holes and vents/pockets in the sleves is innovative but doesn't change the properties of the fabric. Which iirc, will only last about ten years before the luxury soft pile, becomes stiff, brittle, prickly and itchy. Rendering the garment fit for the bin. Why 5 stars you ask? Because it feels and looks amazing. The Teddy-Bear charm is sooooo excessive, you can forgive all the old school limitations. Once on, you won't take it off and once you own one, you will collect all the colours: 'Wolf' (gray), 'Lab' (black), 'Big Foot' (brown) and 'Yeti' (off white). If you want a super modern, technically supreme, breathable, thermally efficient, wjnd/rain resistant, light weight, packable jacket,,,,, there are plenty, including Tad's Equilibrium. If you want 'super cool', this is your one and only choice. Well done TAD.

    Cosy, warm and good looking. You won’t like to take it off. This is a premium hoody, requires layering under windy conditions. Provides a very comfortable climate. Made in USA!

    Fast delivery by HH to Germany, but unfortunately subject to customs after ‚BREXIT‘

    TAD SHAG MASTER HOODIE

    Posted by DAVID HARRIS on 15th Apr 2021

    Unique garment and a unique look and a different type of warmth air passes though this fabric easily which makes it really comfortable for sitting around outdoors which i do a lot of. Makes you feel like a big teddy bear lol. It's expensive but you are unlikely to see anyone else wearing one here in the UK ....it's sort of designer and I love it.

    Great hoody,

    Posted by Treblenine on 8th Apr 2021

    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 8th Apr 2021

    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 8th Apr 2021

    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.
