What Sleeping Bags are Suited when Sleeping in a Swag?

If you’re going on a camping trip or outdoor adventure that involves sleeping outside, you'll need a swag to make your night as comfortable as possible.

‘Swag’ (plural: swags) is referred to in Australia as a sleeping bag and tent all in one. Swags also refer to portable sleeping units that look like a bundle of belongings rolled in a traditional way and are used for camping or outdoor sleeping. It is a known fact that Australians love to sleep under the stars in portable beds that are warm, breathable, and waterproof. Indeed, sleeping in swags beneath the stars is one of the best ways that you can enjoy this beautiful world we live in.

Why Buy Swags?

Swags are large sleeping bags that are made from a strong canvass. They come with a comfortable sponge-like mattress on the bottom to ensure a relaxing open-air sleep experience.

Because of their close resemblance to mini-beds, swags are considered as the most popular form of sleeping equipment in the outdoors. Sleeping in swags for first-time campers is a memorable one since they allow you to experience and witness the eternally clear sky while comfortably lying on a comfy mattress that’s almost similar to what you have in your bedroom.

Buying Sleeping Bags that Match your Swags

If you’re planning an outdoor adventure and want to stay up all night to watch the stars while lying on the ground, then you should invest in a high-quality sleeping bag along with your swag for your adventure.

You'll want a swag that not only offers comfort, but can also stay dry if it drizzles, warm, if it turns frosty, and can be easily and conveniently carried, even if you decide to hike up the mountains!

Adding a suitable sleeping bag to your Swag is also an important factor when choosing to sleep out under the stars. Check out these sleeping bags from Anaconda - the first choice, one stop, outdoor adventure, and sporting retailer.
