What Is a Camping Swag?
A camping swag is a portable sleeping unit used for outdoor adventure. It’s popular with campers and 4WDers. It is a traditional form of shelter used by Australian bushmen and outback travellers.
The word "swag" originated in the 1800s and was used to describe a bedroll carried by swagmen – Workers who travelled on foot from farm to farm for work. They would carry all their belongings and a basic shelter, which they called their "swag."
DARCHE camping swags, including the DARCHE single swag, DARCHE double swag, and the DARCHE swag tent, offer exceptional quality, comfort, and convenience for outdoor enthusiasts. With their durable construction, comfortable interiors, and easy setup, our swags provide a reliable and cosy shelter.
Our camping swags are available in a variety of sizes. We have single, king single and double camping swags. Single camping swags are perfect for the solo adventurer, while double camping swags are perfect for those with partners, or prefer extra room. If you need additional space, you can connect a compatible swag hutch.
What Are Swags Made From?
Camping swags are typically made from heavy-duty canvas material, which is durable and water-resistant. They feature a foam mattress for comfort and metal poles that provide structure to the shelter. The swag also has zippered openings for easy entry and ventilation.
