Helikon-Tex Swagman Roll

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 the slang term ‘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 travelled on foot and carried all his belongings in a bed roll. With the Helikon-Tex Swagman Roll® they salute these intrepid men, trembling on chilly mornings in their moist blankets – but with this 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™.


Helikon-Tex 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 as 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.

    Very warm and comfortable bit of kit, bit bulky if you need a sleeping bag as well as an extra layer on sentry duty ideal. Adds warmth and breaks up the shape.
