Thought I would write a quick review on my initial thoughts on Tusx Camo after getting to wear it for a few days over last weekend chasing Sambar.

On this trip I wore the Schist Covert pants, Stone Sun Shirt and Schist Covert shirt. Conditions were around 8-10C in the mornings and up to the mid 20's in the afternoon. No cloud cover, bright sunny days.

Stone Sun Shirt: Liked everything about this shirt. Very light, breathed extremely well, quiet to wear and held up well to the various prickles etc in the High country around Jamison. My only main dislike was the press studs on the cuffs of the sleeves. Everytime I put my pack back on it would pop open the buttons when I slid my arm through the shoulder straps. Both of us wearing Tusx on this trip had the same issue.

Schist Covert Shirt: Liked the versatility of being able to remove the sleeves on this shirt. Made for a good little insulation vest over the Stone Sun Shirt for a little added warmth in the early morning. Again nice and comfortable and quiet. Same issue with the press studs on the cuffs though.

Schist Covert Pants: Liked these pants. Very comfortable and easy to wear. Zip off pant legs are good. Held up well to some blackberries and other stuff. What I did find though is the water proof bum area which extends between the thighs made them noticeably noisy to stalk in especially for my mate who has bloody tree trunks for legs. For me it was not as bad but still noticeable. Other then that I was very happy with them.


On the whole I was very happy with my purchase of the Tusx Gear and will certainly continue wearing it. As a comparison my usual hunting clothes are all Sitka gear. Comfort level would be about on par with the Sitka stuff but I find the 4 way Stretch material of the Sitka a little better especially as the pants tighten over your thighs when doing big step ups etc. This is only a comparison to the Schist Covert Pants as I understand that the Tusx Stone Barren pants and Boulder Mountain Pants both have a stretch fabric. I will be ordering a pair of the Boulder Mountain Pants soon so will provide thoughts on them as well.

I think the guys at Tusx have done a great job on their gear. Well thought out and very much worth the price.

Great write up mate, wore the schist pant, shirt bucket hat and buff the last few mornings. Sat in front of a scrape and called this old buck in to 20 metres. He was looking strait through me the whole time he walked in. Awesome gear.
