Customer support advice from experts
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 the 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.

PenCott digital camouflage
PenCott GreenZone, Badlands, Sandstorm and Snowdrift are digital camouflages produced by the UK company Hyde Definition. Pattern elements achieve a three dimensional effect; the illusion of depth. Digital camo means non-curvy transitions between tones (squares and rectangular shapes). Camouflage is multi-fractal, meaning it carries a micro-pattern (close range), a macro-pattern (long range), and an innovative midi-pattern (middle range). This ensures that the PenCott continues to conceal the user whether he is few meters away or 400.

As versatile as it gets
The swagman roll is one of the things you get for one use case and then you find more and more situations where you don't want to miss it.
Make your poncho ready for cold environments or turn it into a sleeping system. Protect yourself from the cold when wandering or in camp. Use it to shield yourself from the cold while in a hammock. That's just the obvious usecases. But you can also use it as a multifunction blanket, you can sit on it, you can wrap more than one person in camp, you can use it as a light-proof optical shielding (think of the camo options), use it a as a sleeping bag in summer or in a hut, as an emergency bag in a car and many more.
You will definitely want one of these and carry it with you. You will discover new uses and you will be happy that you brought it.
Good quality, very warm, easy to put on, donÂ´t know, how resistant the material is against flying sparks if you sit aroung a nice fire.... have bouhgt allready a second one and this thing is absolutely recommendable...
