Ended up finding a good one at BCF half price for $150.

In built self inflating mattress, water proof but the top comes off to just have a flyscreen top if it's good weather.

Just needs a tent peg on each end to setup. Feels good, hopefully break it in next weekend :D

I've slept swags my whole life (all 21 years of it) and never had problem. The best design to go for is where either end has a rope tied to a ute, tree etc. to get rid of that claustrophobic feeling

I'm definitely keen for a swag.

Getting a tent up is fine, but it's such a pain in the ass packing it all up at the end of a trip when you're knackered.

couldn't agree more, went form tent, to swag on the floor now to swag on a stretcher and just as comfy as my bed at home. and i just setup under my awning on the side of the 4bie.

easy as to setup too, as said earlier fold out the stretcher and unroll the swag and sit back and have a beer while mucks around with their tents!

AAhhhh to be 21 again,back then I didn't even worry about a matress or swag just a 1945 canvas 10 x 8 ft folded in half,and a couple of blankets and if it was really cold in the snow the dog got to join me,nowadays they would have to call the air ambulance in the morning.
