We have a new addition – “SWAGIT”

I am always on the lookout for the absolute best quality camping gear I can possibly find, knowing that we will all have better quality camping experiences – means I am positively doing my bit for the camping fraternity. I have found a brand new swag range – called SWAGIT, that fits that category to a “T”. In fact, SWAGIT is possibly THE most intelligently designed & built swag system I have come across since Mum & Dad opened Camping Country Australia back in 1993. Equally important to the Michael Family, is keeping business as local as possible & the creators of SWAGIT – Darren & Julia Hoger, own & operate Travelander right here on the Sunshine Coast. “How good is that?!” Designed by genuine Queensland campers – it shows in the design. Finally we have a super sized swag, full of ventilation to suit our Queensland climate. “Have a look for yourself.” 

Darren & Julia Hoger have been customers of Camping Country Australia for a very long time. Darren (Born in Nambour) & Julia (born in Charleville) have owned businesses on the Sunshine Coast for years & for the past 13 years have been manufacturing a niche market camper Trailer called “Travelander.”  But as a second part of their business, they have now created a unique swag design that they run under the banner of “SWAGIT”. 

In a long story short – Darren popped his head into Camping Country Australia a while back, we were talking & he mentioned that I should call around & have a look at his new model swag range – I am so glad I did. Designed by Darren & Julia themselves, you can tell the swags have been created by people who not only love camping – they have obviously camped in a hot humid & often drenching wet climate, like Queensland.  

Here is a snapshot look for you:

Easy & versatile

In the busy modern day world we are living in, we all want things easier, quicker & more convenient. SWAGIT, has fixed all of those issues for us. These swags don’t need to be pegged – the time & hassle of driving pegs in has been taken away & they’re not needed…. period!. It gets better…… the SWAGIT swags are free standing. On a personal level, being able to set up a swag & sleep on the deck of a boat (where I cannot peg a swag or tie one out), use on the floor of a concrete verandah or even use one in an old shearers quarters out west…. having a swag free standing & pegless is brilliant. Oh & by the way – once erected, we can lift the SWAGIT up & move it around the camp wherever we want, as often as we want.

Fits 2 people comfortably:

For starters the swags are 1500mm wide (Most double swags are between 1200mm – 1400mm), so being able to stretch out & sleep cooler in summer is king in my book! 

Tough:

Not having to worry about what sort of ground you are going to roll your swag out on, especially at night when you can’t see & you’ve had a long days drive – is a no brainer for me. The floor of the SWAGIT swags are made of a Truck Tarp style vinyl floor material….. it’s the toughest you could ever want. 

Watertight:

Being able to sleep uninterrupted & stress free in a swag when it’s raining, definitely improves the quality of your camping experience. As I mentioned above, the base of the SWAGIT swags are made from Truck Tarp style vinyl & this can virtually never leak. Julia & Darren have taken that to another extreme by bringing the floor vinyl material up the walls of the swag (like a bath tub) an extra 100mm. It’s not rocket science – but it’s simple, smart, tough & waterproof.    

Innovative:

Protecting your investment, ensuring your swag will last longer & knowing you basically never have to repair or up keep your swag, makes sense doesn’t it?! The SWAGIT swags all come with a carry bag with a difference. Once the carry bag is opened, a connected groundsheet to put under your SWAGIT rolls out to further protect the base of your swag. My father always taught me to put a ground sheet under a tent, a swag is no different.

Good Quality Canvas:

I have run canvas businesses with my parents for years & the one constant thing that has never changed when it comes to canvas fabric is: If the canvas is thick & heavy, it is almost always – stronger, more waterproof, will last longer & better quality hands down. Irrelevant of the marketing used by all swag companies – When it comes to good quality cotton canvas products – the heavier they are, the more cotton they will have in them & the better they are!
