Mr Swagman Classic
BREAKING NEWS November 2015:
All Mr Swagman swags are available in a choice of Desert Sand or Forest Green colour.
Just let us know which colour you want in the comments section in the on line order form.
Mr Swagman's Classic swag is the most versatile swag on the market. It has the ability to be used as a plain flat swag, which can be partially or fully zipped open; or it can be set up to hold the canvas off your body and provide insect protection from the head and foot end meshed windows.
Mr Swagman has selected the finest quality canvas for use in his swags. The canvas is a 100% cotton fabric that offers maximum breathability, is rot resistant, mildew resistant, U.V. stabilized and waterproof. The canvas is a 15 ounce rip stop, heavy-duty material that is the ideal choice for use in Australia's extreme conditions. Mr Swagman has chosen to use a 'Desert Sand' colour canvas for its cooling qualities and its Australian outback rugged image.
If the weather is cold or you require insect protection, the side zip continues up and around your head to incorporate the built-in mesh window. This window does not need to be removed if not in use; it simply rolls down. The Classic swag also has a mesh window at the foot end to aid in ventilation.
The top canvas cover of the single swag unzips and unfolds over to one side, while the double swag unzips down both sides and unfolds to the foot end.
Mr Swagman's Classic swag offers three methods of use:
1) As an open flat swag with the canvas laying on your body and the head flap laying off to one side.
2) An easy one step setup with a rope at the head end which ties to the bars of your 4WD, motorcycle or tree. This rope holds the canvas off your head and top half of your body for comfortable sleeping. A foot end rope is also supplied to keep the canvas off your feet if needed. This rope is best used during rain or extreme cold for added comfort. At other times it is not needed.
3) The Classic swag is provided with an extendable pole to use at the head end and a fixed length pole to use at the foot end. Ropes and pegs are used with these two poles to quickly set up the swag, which ensures the canvas is held off your body from head to toe. This setup provides a very comfortable sleep, regardless of the weather.
Mr Swagman's Classic swag features an easy access, zippered front and side entrance and an overhanging head awning to provide protection from the rain. The head awning can be held open on the swag to allow maximum ventilation through the mesh, or it can be held closed ensuring no rain enters the sleeping area. When these flaps are in the closed position, a small enclosed area is formed to leave your boots and clothes in.
A spreader bar is used at the head end of both the single and double Classic swag to provide extra shoulder room, which results in a better nights sleep.
Insect mesh at the head and foot ends of the Classic swag allows excellent ventilation and insect free sleeping.
An external PVC ground flap is ideal for standing on once your boots are removed to keep your feet clean. This PVC flap is then used to protect your boots from rain and dew overnight. Single swags have a single section of PVC, while the double has one either side.
A high density, 70mm egg crate style foam mattress, with a removable cover is included in the price of all Mr Swagman swags. They provide maximum comfort by preventing the user from touching the ground, ensuring a good nights sleep.
These foam mattresses incorporate ‘Ultra-Fresh antimicrobial protection’ – resists mould, mildew, bacteria, odours and dust mites, which are triggers of allergies and asthma.
