Southern Cross Swag Review 2017
The Southern Cross Swag is easy to unpack and can be set up within a minute. It has a good-looking similar structure to the Adventure Kings brand, using two identical poles at either end of the swag as well as one long adjustable centre spreader bar to hold it up.
This swag comes with 50mm roll-up straps and quick release buckles to ensure it can be rolled up and unpacked quickly. Once rolled up, the carry handles make it easy move and get onto the roof of any 4wd.
This high-quality swag has Wax Converters Dynaproofed Billabong 370g/sq.m canvas making it fully waterproof and rot and mildew resistant.
In addition, it has a weather flap running across the top of the swag to ensure rainwater rolls off easily, and an impressive 50+ UV rating.
Southern cross swags come in a variety of sizes. Both the single and double have the same length (2130mm) and height (700mm), with the double having a width of 1280mm versus the singles 900mm. This is one of the longest swags on the market is and perfect for people who are above 6 foot / 180cm (its mattress is almost as big as a queen size bed).
Due to its extra length, the swag is large when rolled up and this is a consideration for those travelling with space restrictions.
An awesome premium swag perfect for those looking to make an investment in their camping experience. We highly recommend the Southern Cross swag.
