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 was traveling 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.

We would like to ensure that the apparel you purchase really fits you – in order for them to perform their purpose properly. Please invest a moment of your valuable time to check out the measurements guide and corresponding size table to avoid errors.

Wearing a shirt that you like, measure with an arm at your side, from the shoulder's seam all along the arm until you find the desired length. We recommend that the sleeve should go to the base of your thumb (located at the wrist joint).
Button up the pants. Lay the pants out on a flat surface. Measure the inseam distance from crotch, where the front and back seams meet, to the bottom of the leg.
Button up the pants. Lay the pants out on a flat surface with outseams at both edges. Take care to pull any wrinkles and fullness from the back panel. Measure the distance from the top of the waistband to the bottom of the hem.
Lay down flat the skirt that best matches your size with the side stitching facing upwards. Use your hand to flatten/straighten any wrinkles on the fabric. Next measure the distance between the top edge point and the bottom edge point. To have the most accurate result you should measure this along the side stitching.
Lay down flat the skirt that best matches your size with the front zipper facing upwards. Use your hand to flatten/straighten any wrinkles on the fabric. Measure the top part of the skirt (the waist line) starting from one sides edge point to the opposite side edge point. Next, double the result to get the waist circumference.
