Double Swags – Comfort and Convenience for Two
Heading off on a trip, just the two of you?
Whether it’s a biking or hiking adventure, or just to experience bush life for a while, your sleeping arrangements are important. Double swags are a great choice for providing comfort and protection while also keeping your packs light.
Whilst a tent might be a good choice if you are travelling in a car, or camping in one place for a while, swags are an excellent alternative when you need to keep the baggage light, or are planning to move from place to place regularly and just need a place to sleep. The convenience of swags is hard to beat, but many people don’t realise that they are available in double or even queen sizes.
Many double swags look like small tents, but are easier to set up and break down, are generally more breathable and airy, and are designed purely for sleeping under the stars. Most pack up very small into heavy duty canvas swag bags.
Choosing Your Double Swag
Double swags are for sale in several different designs:
- Traditional swags –a compact sleeping compartment for two, with a flat top design
- Domed swags – these swags provide a domed ‘roof’ for extra roominess and breathability
- Apex swags – these have a traditional roomy Apex design cut with an extended head flap
The design you choose will depend on your personal sleeping preferences (how much room you need, etc.) as well as how lightweight you need it to be; also, where you are intending to use your swag is important. All our swags are durable and waterproof but some are designed more for warmer climates, or are better for keeping sandflies and other insects out, for instance.
You may also have a brand preference – for example, some customers always opt for Burke and Wills swags because they have other camping and outdoor equipment made by the same manufacturer, and have found it reliable.
All double swags come with manufacturers’ warranties and you can find a large range right here in our easy-to-use online swag store. Our special online deals offer further discounts on selected items and, if you buy your swag online with us, you get FREE delivery anywhere in Australia (this applies to all orders over $99).
