Need to know more about swags?
Canvas swags are a relatively new concept to the UK and, hopefully, this guide will give you more of an idea of what you can expect from this famous well proven icon of the great outdoors.

It is an evolution of the days of Waltzing Matilda and the Australian 'Jolly Swagman' travelling from farm to farm looking for work and sleeping by the billabong under the coolibah tree in his simple bedroll - essentially his blanket in which all his belongings were kept.

The first thing to acknowledge about a swag is that it would be a mistake to call it a tent. In Australia, tents are tents and swags are swags. The humble swag is better thought of as a sleeping system. It is an extremely comfortable mattress set inside a strong, hard wearing canvas shelter. You can keep some items inside with you and sometimes even have more than one of you but you're not going to be doing any cooking in there and getting dressed is easier outside than in.

Outhaus swags are made from very heavy duty waterproofed polycotton canvas and have strong waterproof PVC bases so they can be used on their own in all but the most extreme weather. However, most swags are top loading, which means that if it's raining and you want to get in or out, you're going to get wet, as is the inside of your swag. To this end, the most popular way to enjoy a swag is to think of it as just the bed part of your camp set up (similar to how you may view a hammock). Pitch an awning on your 4x4 or a tarp between some trees and have the swag pitched at the edge of this shelter. Then you have a large area for cooking and other activities, with your comfy canvas bedroom on the outskirts.  This means that you're going to have a roof over you, protecting you from the weather and you can sleep with just the bug net, even if it's throwing it down outside.

    Outstanding kit

    Posted by Chris on 13th Sep 2021

    I was looking for a solution for motorcycle camping that provided more room and comfort than my ultralight backpacking kit. I certainly found it. This swag is exceptionally well constructed and very well thought out. I have had three nights in it since it arrived (day after ordering) and have nothing negative to say about it at all. It is exceptionally comfortable, has extensive ventilation options, blacks out the daylight and is warm and breathable. It is a little on the wide side for the back of the motorbike - but I knew that before ordering. Paired with a tarp it is absolutely perfect for my purposes and I'd throughly recommend it. Made for a very comfortable base in a wet Welsh campsite :-)

    Davenport Swag

    Posted by Shaun Reed on 13th Jul 2021

    I purchased this swag about 1 month ago and I was very impressed with the build quality.
    I seasoned it and I have finally been out for my first swag camp and wow so comfortable, the canvas helps keep the light out so I slept longer.
    5star rating from me it’s a purchase I will never regret.
