Is there a mattress included in a swag or do I need to purchase a foam mattress?

Smart travellers these days know the importance of swags and the role they play in giving them the ultimate outdoor experience. However, many still wonder – does a swag already include a mattress or not?

It is important to know whether you need to purchase a foam mattress so you don’t have to pay extra for a separate mattress. Luckily, Anaconda offers a wide range of swags, all with a foam mattress attached!

This Gear Guide provides you with a list of swag options, all of which can easily be purchased in-store or online from Anaconda. For convenience, comfort and style, read on about the swags with mattresses available here at Anaconda - Australia’s largest camping and adventure superstore.

First, Why Buy Swags?

Swags are the portable sleeping units preferred by every modern camper. They are the updated version of the traditional "tents" people once pitched manually in the great outdoors. Sometimes called the “backpack bed”, swags are designed to be easy to carry. They’re basically your shelter rolled in a traditional fashion.

The convenience brought by swags makes them the perfect outdoor companion. With swags, you get protection from harsh or unexpected weather. Most swags come with a waterproof canvas over the sleeping compartment. You can go to sleep at night without worrying about annoying water leaks or uncomfortable moisture. The design also makes sure that there’s enough ventilation, so you don’t have to worry about the intense heat from the sun. Moreover, the makers of different swags understand how a camping trip can be ruined by insects, which is why most swags come with meshed windows to keep the bugs out.

Nowadays, swags come with comfortable foam mattresses. You shouldn’t have to hurt your back resting after a long and tiring day of having fun. You also shouldn’t have to lug around a big air mattress with you all day to get the relaxation you deserve. Read on to find more about your options here at Anaconda - Australia’s largest camping and adventure superstore.
