Few things are more relaxing than a night in a swag. After an evening by the fire, it’s time to kick back and star gaze – while another good night’s sleep beckons.

ARB SkyDome Swag 1

So let’s take a look at the ARB SkyDome Swag. The two spreader poles hold up the three hoops and make this a freestanding dome swag. In extreme weather it’s possible to peg and guy rope it out to withstand the elements.

In the rain, dew and cold, the canvas entrance zips closed. There is plenty of shoulder and head room, which makes this swag a comfortable place to be. There are handy hooks for lights and pockets for things like keys and phones.

The mesh panels at the foot, entrance and head allow for a flow of ventilation on hot nights, and keep the bugs where they should be.

On many trips we remove the foam mattress and use a compact inflating one instead. This allows the swag to roll up to a fraction of the size. It’s a bit of a trade off – slightly slower to set up – but it means we can fly with them, or pack them on trips when we are travelling with our tent and are tight on space.

The foot and head vents have canvas covers both inside and out. In the rain it’s possible to peg out the covers to allow waterproof ventilation. If the outside vent is open and it gets cold during the night, it’s easy to zip up the inside cover to keep warm.

With YKK zips, 11mm aluminium poles, 500gsm water and rot proofed canvas and a bombproof 970gsm tubbed PVC floor – this swag is built to a premium standard.
