Become a Jolly Swagman with this canvas one person tent, it is so easy to put up unlike all the modern nylon tents, just roll it out and thats it. You can shape it buy adding a pole or just tie the flap to a tree,( not necessary to find a Coolibah Tree), as the song goes. Try sleeping under canvas again is so retro you will not be disapointed.
Outhaus have spent many months fine tuning this swag to bring you a high quality robust Australian style canvas swag.Just add your blankets or sleeping bags and get a really cosy, comfy rest after a hard day in the great outdoors.
Goes up (and down) in seconds. Under a minute and you’re ready to sleep under the stars. The swag can be used with the supplied mattress or with your own, depending on your preference. The swag will roll up smaller without 50mm mattress so it can be carried on foot some distance.
*due to the nature of canvas, the swag will need to be weathered to become totally waterproof. This just means it needs to get wet and dry a few times to allow the canvas fibres to expand and interlock although our swags are pretty much dry straight out of the box.
What’s a swag then?
Thing of Waltzing Matilda and the Jolly Swagman. A swag is a traditional Australian bedroll originally consisting of really just blankets and so on rolled into a, well, roll. Our modern swag is the same principle but with a treated canvas outer & base and a fitted mattress. You can keep your blankets (and anything else) inside and roll it all up when you’re ready to move on. Swags aren’t small when rolled up due to the fact there’s a mattress inside but they’re pretty lightweight and we think that once you’ve ditched nylon for canvas there’ll be no going back.
