How to Roll a Swag Watch video
How to Season a Swag Watch video

For an Aussie adventure, go for an Aussie designed 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’ll need to stay comfy and dry no matter what the weather is like.

The rot 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.

All you need is your favourite sleeping bag, as the Redgum comes with a 75mm 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 it! This dome system swag has plenty of headspace – so you won’t feel cramped and muggy 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.

You can set up your Redgum on virtually any Aussie terrain, so you can get out and explore this great country with a solid place to rest every night.

Redgum Burke and wills Swag

Currently making my way to Cape York . The swag is going great . One issue is the aluminium polled gave slightly bent but no great issue. Will look at replacing them on return in 6 weeks . Will see how the aftermarket service is then. I'm sure it won't be a hassle

Great swag

I've just tried out this swag. Seems fine. Did the seasoning as recommended:haven't used it in rain yet but heavy dew was ok. Central support seems too long for the space so I have used it without. Extra comfy mattress, good strong materials. King single is bulky but nice and roomy. Delivery time and price extraordinary!

Redgum King Single Swag

I have seasoned the swag ready for use. It was exactly as I thought it would be. Easy to set up and although have not been out camping with it. I am very happy.

G'day Frank,

The Burke & Wills Redgum King Single Swag doesn't come with a bag, no. You can buy a King Single Swag Bag for it here.

Comparison to other swags1 answer

How does this swag compare to the Jolly Swagman Shiralee in terms of overall quality, and particularly waterproofing? Another reviewer raised concerns of this brand being made in China, has this affected the quality?

- Toowoomba(11 months ago)

G'day Tegan,

So far, we haven't noticed any difference in the quality of the Burke and Wills swags since manufacturing was moved off-shore.

It's very hard to distinguish the two as they're both great swag brands. However, I have found that Jolly Swagman do put that little bit of extra effort into their product through really considering each component which gives me a little more confidence in purchasing a long-term product.

To be honest, the biggest overall difference is in their design and the use of fibreglass poles (Jolly Swagman) over alloy poles (Burke and Wills) which comes down to a personal preference. The canvas itself is very similar.

In terms of waterproofing, we haven't heard of any ongoing issues with either brand and the type of canvas they're using, only the once off issues or matters that can be easily resolved.

hello team how do l set up a redgum single swag1 answer

l am having trouble setting up my Redgum single Swag. cheers margie

- Healesville(1 year ago)

G'day Margie.

To set up these swags, simply roll it out in the spot that you would like to camp on, and peg it out to keep it in position. Then assemble the poles allowing the longer pole section to be at the head end, and the shorter at the foot end. Feed the pole through the upper tab which will hold the head and foot end up and feed the pin on the ring on the corner of the swag up in to one end of the pole. Then with a little effort you can feed the pin on the other side into the other end of the pole. These can be a little difficult on a brand new swag as the fabric is stiff but perseverence usually sees you through. When you have both ends on the pins, just hook over the black plastic hooks on the swag, to the poles to finish off. Then when that is all done, simply peg out the guy ropes at each end to pull it nice and tight.

A good thing to then do is to wet it all down and season the fabric an stitching. This will swell the fabric and the stitching to gain the waterproof rating and keep rain and showers out of your swag. If you don't do this step then you may find that the swag is not as waterproof when it rains for the first time, and you may encounter some leaking around the seams. It would be recommended that you do this 2 or 3 times and allow your swag to dry out between each seasoning. You will also find that the swag is easier to put together the next time as the fabric has a chance to stretch a little.
