Helikon-Tex Swagman Roll

$125.13

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.

    Awesome product.

    Posted by Nige on 16th Jun 2020

    I've tried this in lashing rain, 100% dry, everyone looked at me daft wearing this while going to the shops, who's the daft one, I was dry and warm. I've used it as a blanket, it's stunningly warm and light. Once lockdown is over I'll be back in the wilds with this in my rucksack knowing I'll stay dry and warm. Awesome product, if you spend lots of time outdoors, you need one.

    So much more than a poncho liner

    Posted by The bigyin on 1st Mar 2019

    Yet again the customer service team at Heinnie deserve 5 stars on their own, ordered this item at 3pm Wednesday and arrived by 11am the next day, bl**dy amazing! The swagman roll is yet to be tested in anger but upon first impressions is a 5 star bit of kit . For the price you get a very warm poncho liner, blanket, hammock under quilt, emergency sleeping bag and of swagman roll all in one. All zips, cords and ties look very well made as does the whole thing in general, can't wait to get out and try it in the field .

    comfy

    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.
