Natures Protection

Crafted from premium 8oz Waxed Cotton Canvas, this rugged survival blanket is designed to tackle the elements with style and durability. The outer canvas is treated with wax which repels water. Unlike synthetic materials, the breathable canvas prevents odours and mould, ensuring you feel fresh and comfortable even in humid conditions.


2 x custom brass buttons on the side of The Drifter create sleeves for added protection and movability.

Hoist Loops

4 x reinforced cotton webbing loops on each corner for pegging The Drifter to the ground or hoisting aloft for an emergency shelter.

Waterproof Zip

The genius of The Drifter is the waterproof YKK zipper in the middle. Zipped, it keeps the moisture locked to the waxed side. Unzipped it turns The Drifter into a poncho.

No. The Drifter is water-resistant. 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.

Since 2018, we have made 95% of our Jack Stillman products in-house in our facility in Vietnam. We own and maintain our own specialised machines and the majority of our small operational team have been with us since we started. It is because of this that we can confidently offer our lifetime warranty. To learn more about our manufacturing, read this.
