The humble swag has come a long way from its modest bedroll days when our ancestors made their way across the country on horseback. They were a simple, and effective way to keep the weather, dust and mozzies at bay as you kip out under the stars. Little did they know that campers and 4WDers would also eventually benefit from advancements in swag design.
Traditionally, swags were just an envelope of fabric, or the fancy ones had a single pole to keep the fabric off your face, they all had a mattress to make things comfortable. Then, 20 years ago Darche introduced the dome swag which opened up a host of new swag users as the comfort and livability of these shelters was suddenly increased.
Nowadays there are so many variations on what we recognise as a traditional swag that there now seems to exist a blurred line between what is a swag and what is a tent. PVC floors, multiple pole configurations, numerous windows and vents as well as storage and boot mats now exist as standard features on many swags that bring them in line with the feature set seen on many compact tents.
Furthermore, we are now seeing the introduction of air swags which remove the need for rigid poles instead being replaced by bladders of air, and to add to add another blurred line, we are now seeing compact synthetic swags that provide the functionality of a canvas swag in a compact, albeit not as durable package, which is basically a heavy duty bivvy bag.
So whether it's old school envelopes styles from AOS, roomy double swags and inflatable models from Darche, tough canvas swags from Burke & Wills, and affordable dome styles from Oztrail and everything in-between, you'll find a swag for sale to suit every budget in the Snowys range.
