February 2021 PLEASE NOTE:
We are waiting for updated photos of the Mr Swagman Classic swag. The following photos are of the old version in the Desert Sand canvas. The updated swags utilise the new Stockman Brown canvas (as per some other swags on the website) and are larger (wider and higher) than the older version. New photos will be coming soon.
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 with the full-length head to toe midge proof meshed windows.
Mr Swagman has selected the finest quality canvas for use in his swags. The canvas is a smooth, tight-woven polycotton ‘Stockman Brown’ fabric that offers maximum strength and breathability, is rot-resistant, mildew resistant, U.V. stabilized and waterproof. The ‘Stockman Brown’ canvas is a 12oz, heavy-duty material that is the ideal choice for use in Australia’s extreme conditions.
Mr Swagman has chosen to use a ‘Stockman Brown’ colour canvas for its Australian outback rugged image – there is not a better-looking canvas swag on the market.
The base of all Mr Swagman swags is a high-quality, flexible 15oz Hypa-PVC, which allows you to use the swag on all ground surfaces – wet or dry.
A high density, 70mm egg-crate style Hi-Loft 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 night’s sleep.
These Hi-Loft foam mattresses resist mould, mildew, bacteria, odours and dust mites, which are triggers of allergies and asthma.
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.
Mr Swagman’s Classic swag comes in a King Single size and measures 90cm wide, 2.1 meters long and 80cm high at the head end and 35cm high at the foot end.
All Mr Swagman Classic King Single swags come complete with a heavy-duty 15oz PVC zipped, waterproof swag / carry bag to protect your swag from all weather conditions.
A spreader bar is used at the head end to provide extra shoulder room, which results in a better nights sleep.
Mr Swagman’s Classic swag features easy access, zippered front and side entrance and an overhanging head awning to provide protection from the rain. The head awning can be secured open 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.
Mr Swagman’s single 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. No need to use the poles or ropes and perfect for inside a tent or at your mate’s place.
2) An easy one-step set up with a rope at the head end which ties to the bars of your 4WD 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 two poles to use at the head and foot ends. 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.
