Purchase your hood with the Drifter and save 20%. (Automatic discount when added to the cart with your Drifter). Be sure to choose your desired colour.

What Real Customers Say


Quality, warmth & a head turner

I love the quality of the poncho. I’ve warn it on a cold rainy day and it does what it says it does. I have the hood too. Best random warm raincoat I’ve ever bought. 100% recommend this if it’s something you’re looking for. Throw it over your good clothes and stay dry and warm and everyone asks where do I get one of those?! Jack Stillman mate!




Sent to Canada

This was a gift for an outdoorsman friend on Canada’s West Coast where it rains for 80% of the year! He loves it. Wears it hiking all the time and likes that it also covers his pack when worn.

Super tool of camping!

Perfect complement for a weekend in my campervan. Good for rain of course, but useful in the evenings to keep warm, a useful piece of bedclothes,either under or over you. the canvas is surprisingly soft and flexible, and the tags let you easily hang it up for shade or windbreak or privacy! All that and it packs up in a bag smaller than a jacket and fits easily in the storage cupboard. Get yourself one.

A camping 'go to'

Motorcycling and camping are my happy place, and I just recently received the poncho and hood. Have only had the chance to use as a ground sheet for my tent and as a picnic blanket by the river, perfect so far. The ‘Drifter’ imo is going to be a versatile piece of material that will be packed for many an adventure.
ps; the tote bag for the poncho allows room for the hood, light guy rope etc.

No. The Drifter is water-repellent. The 8oz cotton canvas outer material is treated with wax which naturally repels water. This trusted method has been used for centuries by sailors and soldiers to protect against the elements. The advantage to this over plastic coated materials is that The Drifter breathes naturally, is biodegradable and oozes old-school charm.

The Drifter dominates as a field blanket. It's compact, simple yet versatile. The hood is innovatively designed to fit to The Drifter without impacting its role as a blanket or ground cover. We have found that almost 50% of customers don't feel they need the hood. The hood can be purchased separately but the good news is, if you buy the hood at the same time as The Drifter you save 20% off the hood. Click here to add the hood to your cart.

The Drifter comes with a coating of wax so its good to go for your very next adventure. You can (and we recommend) re-wax your Drifter throughout its lifetime. We recommend once per year or after washing.

We recommend washing The Drifter sparingly. If you need to wash it, use a cold, gentle machine wash with minimal detergent. Harsh washing will remove the protective wax coating but this can re-applied when dry.

The Story of Jack Stillman 

Did you know Jack was a real person? Our Grandfather in fact. His story is intertwined with ours and each piece of gear we make.

In the heart of Australia, the spirit of Jack Stillman is woven into the very fabric of our heritage gear. Jack, an ex-Australian Navy man, faced the fury of North African naval warfare during WWII, only to return and traverse the vast landscapes of Australia, sharing stories of faith and hard work.

Our journey began in 2014, inspired by this epiphany and drawing from his military background and motorcycle adventures. We are more than just a brand. We're a proud family business that holds traditional values dear, valuing experiences over the superficial, and cherishing bonds over profit. Today, we are Jack Stillman's legacy.
