For a hassle free outdoor Aussie adventure, pick up an Aussie made swag like the Redgum from Burke & Wills. The Redgum is the signature swag from the Burke & Wills range, and it’s easy to see why – it’s got all the features you would need for a solid sleep in all types of weather. This double sized swag is plenty of room for two, and will give you a solid night’s sleep under the stars.
The Australian made rot-proof and waterproof canvas is constructed to withstand whatever the elements throw at you, which let’s face it can be a lot. The Redgum is perfect for warm summer nights, as the canvas can be unzipped to just the sandfly proof mesh layer which will keep a steady flow of air inside your swag. When the weather turns wet, you can zip everything up and have full protection from the rain. There’s also added ventilation panels at the head and foot, which will keep you nice and comfortable all night.
The Redgum comes with a 75mm Eggcrate foam mattress which’ll give you even distributed support all over, and will allow for more air to come through – so you won’t sweat through your mattress! With plenty of headspace – you won’t feel cramped and stuffed in like sardines in hot weather, and in the cold you can rug up inside your swag and not feel like the walls are closing in on you. This swag can be set up on virtually any Aussie terrain, so you can get out and explore this great country with a solid place to sleep every night.
Can you still supply the original type redgum swag in double as per the add or is the Made in China new model Recently bought one of these swags from a supplier in Brisbane and it was not as per the Redgum sway we already have. It had no opening door at top or fly mesh at base for ventilation. Please advise if you can supply the proper original Redgum Double wit the 3 hoops top end door and foot ventilation. Thank you
I’ve just checked the stock that we have of the Burke and Wills swags, and the models that we have are from 2016 (though we only have one or two of each model left).
Some of the 2016 models were made in China, and some in Australia so we are not completely sure where each individual swag we have in stock is made – but we do know that from 2017 onwards, all of the Burke and Wills swags will be made in China.
I have spoken to the supplier and they’ve said that there are some changes to the Redgum range for 2017.
They have double checked for me, and they said that they have not removed the zip front door with air vent and sandfly mesh, the three hoop design or the double zip air vent with sandfly mesh at foot.
I don’t have the full details but the additions should be:
The supplier has assured me that the quality has not been downgraded, and that if anything the design has been improved on the original. We haven’t seen these changes ourselves, but we are confident in them as a brand.
Just keep in mind - we're getting low on stock and I'd be pretty sure to say that all new stock will be the 2017 model.
