What Is a Swag?
A swag is often referred to as a portable sleeping unit. Even though a tent and a swag perform the same function, there is a crucial difference between the two. A swag tends to be big enough for one or two people, while a tent can accommodate up to ten people.
What Should I Take into Account When I Purchase a Swag?
Even though a swag is considerably smaller than the average tent, there are still many things to take into account when purchasing.
When camping or hiking, you want to be fully protected against all weather elements and have a good night sleep! To ensure this, be sure to take the following guidelines into account when purchase your new swag.
Weathering / Seasoning your Swag
New cotton canvas swags need to go through a process called weathering or seasoning. This is as simple procedure, simply put up the swag when rain is forecast and wait for the clouds to open. Or hose down with water and wait overnight to dry. The swag will get wet, some drips will come through and all the cotton fibres in the weave will swell, nestling into one another. The result? A perfectly waterproof swag and one that will give years of good service if well looked after.
