FAQ (shipping, payments, return policy)

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.
