Am about to buy a copuple of swags. One for both my wife and I but a not opting for a double as I need a single for the boys type trips. A mate mentioned that I should get two singles that can be zipped/connected to make a double. I havnt been able to find anything on the net along these lines. Does anyone one know of such a brand or where to get one?

Get a good double, and a cheap as single for the boys trips :idea:

But I've also heard of the singles that zip together, sounds like a great Idea. Have you tried Mr Swag man? They've got a good rep, not that I've bought of him I've only got a cheapie but it works. Email or Ring them http://www.mrswagman.com.au

I alwasy read that site as Mrs Wagman

Get a queen - doubles are too small.

And get a single for the boys weekends.

Swags are VERY cheap these days

I bought a double for me and the missus, but unless you both are 1.5m and weigh 45kg each, its too small. Then we bought another single swag and now me and the missus are separated when camping. Or perhaps we are both just too big, being brought up on meat, and for veggies we had chicken or fish....

GRAVEDIGGER!!! *evil laugh*

can anyone vouch for these swags ? cos i like the look of them. and the features of the premium classic swag.

but i have also seen a few swags similiar in camping stores for half the price. (or less)

so do u get what u pay for ?
