Helikon-Tex Swagman Roll Poncho Coyote
Ultra versatile poncho liner
The Swagman Roll Poncho is reminiscent of the gear of the earliest hikers and soldiers. Instead of sleeping bags, blanket rolls were the go-to in the pack, usually made of wool. With the development of nylon fabrics and during the Vietnam War, the classic poncho liner came onto the market. Poncho liners are ultra-light blankets that double as a warming base for a rain poncho.
In Aussie slang, "swagmen" are travelling craftsmen, like American cowboys or trappers, working nomads who travel on foot and carry all their belongings in a bedroll.
With the Swagman Roll, Helicon-tex sets a monument to the intrepid men who shivered in their damp blankets on chilly mornings, because with the Swagman Roll, this uncomfortable part of the vagabond's life will certainly never happen to anyone again. The Swagman Roll is no ordinary blanket, but something like a multitool that can be used wherever a warm blanket is needed. Whether as a warming layer under a poncho, as an emergency sleeping bag or as a supplement to a normal sleeping bag, whether for laying out the hammock & or simply as a long, warm coat on its own.
The Swagman Roll is made from thin nylon fabric lined with Climashield Apex. The nylon won't soak through and is so light that even carrying it in a rucksack is hardly a burden.
Ultra versatile, reliable and equipped with YKK zips, the Swagman Roll Poncho is compatible with the USGI Poncho. A transport bag is integrated.
