There's nothing more Aussie than camping outside under the stars in your very own swag. Whether you want to replace your tent, want something more than a sleeping bag, or are looking for an experience to make your bush trip feel more authentic, a camping swag is the best way to go.
While the swag may have modernised over the years, it still serves the same purpose: offering protection while exposed to the great outdoors. If you don't mind sleeping in close, compact quarters next to your camping companion, then invest in a swag.
What is the difference between a swag and a tent?
A swag is a portable sleeping unit that tends to be big enough for one or two people, while a tent can accommodate up to ten people. A swag is more intimate than a tent, which offers luxury and plenty of space.
When purchasing a swag, you need to ensure you are protected against all elements. It is important that you 'weather' your swag before using it, which is a simple procedure - just hose it down with water and wait overnight for it to dry. While it sounds counterproductive, some of the drips will fall through and swell the cotton fibres. You'll then get a perfectly waterproof swag that can offer you years of good service.
Benefits of a swag
One of the best features about a swag is that you can set it up and pack it away in seconds. This is so handy when you've been sitting around the campfire all night and drowsiness just hits you - just roll up the swag and hit the hay.
You also won't need to bring extra bedding as they can be warmer than a tent. If however you feel that you need some extra insulation,camping bag linerscan give you that extra warmth.
