Swag for a LifetimeBy: Tony on 25 April 2019I recently purchased this swag in the hope it would last me a long time! Since I've only used it once, I can't comment on that, but the build quality is exceptional. The canvas feels bulletproof and the fly mesh might as well be Crimsafe. I'm really impressed with its design too. The swag can be pitched as in the diagram with a pole (purchased separately), however I just used it without, tucking the fly mesh underneath the mattress and folding the extra head section down, and found it was excellent this way (like simpler swags). Nothing beats rolling out your swag and being set up in an instant, while you watch your mates fiddle with poles and pegs. Pack up is super quick too, and despite camping on sand, it didn't stick to the canvas when I rolled it up! In hindsight I could have gone with a simpler and cheaper version, but I'm glad I went with the tougher canvas and lifetime warranty, as well as having the option for elevating the canvas off the body with the security of fly mesh to keep the mozzies and sandflies out! The mattress isn't as luxurious as I expected it to be (glad I didn't go with the biker version!) but on the flip-side, the swag is really compact, and can be rolled very tight, even with sheets and blanket inside. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and look forward to the next adventure with it. Also, Wild Earth made an error with the order since it hadn't left the warehouse after a week, but I phoned them and they promptly shipped it - express. Well done Wild Earth!
