Outback Swag Tent

First, we have to start out by saying this tent was designed and made in Australia. Down there, ‘Swag’ is another word for ‘tent’, not an already outdated bit of rap slang. That’d be ridiculous. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, lets dive into the details of this new camping apparatus. If you are a solo camper or the kind of guy who likes heading out to the national forests in your car, then you know that it can be hard to decide between choosing a cumbersome oversized camping tent to bring with, or no tent at all. This small and incredibly easy to pack shelter offers an easy solution to the problem.

Constructed with a tough and waterproof ripstop canvas held aloft by three 5/16 inch aluminum poles, you can set the Swag up in the bed of your truck, or down on the ground. You won’t have to worry about sleeping with a rock in your back, however, thanks to a 2 inch thick foam mattress included with the tent. While the heavy canvas is great for rainy or snowy weather, the zip top reveals a mesh ceiling for keeping air moving through the tent during those warmer summer nights. Since they first launched in the U.S., these tents have received a lot of attention, which is why they’re currently on backorder until the middle of next month. Prices currently set at $300.
