Swags

Camping swags for sale

Compact and durable - the trusty swag makes for the perfect camping companion and nothing beats getting out to the great outdoors and setting up camp under the stars.

A swag is a compact, portable sleeping unit that originates from Australia. It’s popular among campers and hikers due to its simplicity, durability and ability to provide a comfortable night’s sleep. For a wide variety of swags from top brands, check out the tents and swags collection at Freddy's.

At Freddy’s we have a swag bed for every type of camper. From a simple flat shape to the newer dome variety which allows for more space and ventilation. If you’re a solo camper, our range of single swags are ideal or opt for the double swag or king double swags when camping in style or with family.

Swags vs Tents 

A swag is a one-person canvas sleeping compartment, traditionally used by Aussie stockmen and now a popular choice amongst campers and bushwalkers. On the other hand, a tent is a larger, multi-person structure that provides shelter from the elements. Tents come in various sizes and styles, accommodating anywhere from one to over ten people. 

Unlike swag, tents do not typically come with built-in bedding, meaning you must pack additional items such as air mattresses or sleeping pads. It’s compact, easy to set up, and offers a cosier, more insulated sleep than a tent. There are several types of swags you can choose from, such as single swags, king single swags, double swags, and compact swags. From spacious double swags for couples to compact single swags for solo adventures, Freddy’s has a swag to fit every camping need.

Why Choose a Swag Over a Tent?

Choosing a swag over a tent comes with a number of advantages:

  • Simplicity and Speed: Swags are easy to set up and pack away, often only requiring you to roll or unroll them. This simplicity makes them perfect for those looking for a fuss-free camping experience or for when you need to set up camp quickly.
  • Durability: Made with robust materials, swags are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions. Their sturdy construction makes them more durable in the face of wind and rain compared to some tents.
  • Comfort: Swags often come with a built-in mattress, offering a level of comfort you may not get with a basic tent setup. The compact design also offers excellent insulation, keeping you warmer on cold nights.
  • Closer to Nature: With a swag, you'll be sleeping closer to the ground and the stars, giving you a more immersive outdoor experience.

Choosing the Right Swag 

When planning your camping trip, picking the right swag is crucial. You need to consider its durability, weight, size, how quickly it is to set up, and if it suits your camping site. If you’re after a bit more comfort, try a stretcher swag or an Oztrail swag.

Freddy’s can also help enhance your camping experience with a range of swag accessories. We’ve got everything from groundsheets to awnings and extra poles.

When choosing the right size for your swag, consider your height and the number of occupants. A king single swag offers extra room for taller individuals, while a double swag accommodates two people comfortably.

Maintaining Your Swag

After you’ve chosen your swag, make sure you season it. This means wetting and drying the swag a few times to make the material and stitching better at keeping water out. Once your swag is seasoned, setting it up is easy. Just unroll it, put the poles in, peg it down, and you’re ready for a cosy night’s sleep.

Looking after your swag is just as important as choosing it. Regular cleaning and ensuring it’s dry before you pack it away can keep it in good shape for longer.
