Helikon - SWAGMAN ROLL Poncho (1923406102577)

Once upon a time, the trappers, the trekkers and even the soldiers did not carry sleeping bags. They carried blanket rolls. Up until very recently, wool was the best blanket material. Then, still several decades ago, Nylon fabrics came into being. During the Vietnam War, there appeared a new blanket – the Poncho Liner. Ultra lightweight blanket doubling as warming liner for rain-protection poncho.

In Australian slang ‘swagman’ means a travelling workman. Something like American cowboy or a trapper, occasionally on a lookout for a work on the Frontier. The difference was, the Australian swagman travelingling on foot, and carried all his belongings in a bed roll. With our Swagman Roll® we salute these intrepid men, trembling on chilly mornings in their moist blankets – but with our Swagman Roll® you’ll never have to emulate that particular part of their lifestyle. It is made of thin Nylon fabric, filled with one of the best insulating materials mankind ever dreamed of – the Climashield® Apex™.

Swagman Roll® is not your ordinary blanket. It is more of a multifunction tool, applicable wherever a warm cover is required. You can use it a poncho liner, emergency sleeping bag, enhance your regular sleeping bag with it, wrap in it as if it was a blanket, line your hammock with it – or just wear as a stand-alone long, warm coat.

      Best thing I've bought this year.

      I would still be wearing it, but it has been in the 70's in Ohio the past few weeks. Best thing I have bought for my prepper kit this year.

      Added length attachment for legs neaded

      I borrowed a buddies to test before buying and I loved it but could think of improvements.
      My butt got wet and some way to extend the length that could be left on or off. Having my legs unrestricted was a big plus but at times it would be better to have them more covered in length like when sitting. It was warmer than I thought because it really doesn't weigh much and dried out fast when it got wet. Stuffs really well into your pack but I don't use the bag that it comes with. Just don' go out in the cold thinking this is all you need for the night but as a straight up manuverable high quality made Poncho it's the one you want.
