Top quality swagGreat dealings with Amanda when ordering directly from company on phone to receiving product promptly at my address. I compared many different swags online and read many many reviews this swag stood out price and quality simple to set-up and pack up also, purchased the swag bag and has just a little more room to also pack some things in it with swag if needed and material will last the time love the design and colour of bag also definitely a great buy Show details
Great quality, fantastic serviceOrdered the blue camo king single swag. Two weeks later, I still hadn't received tracking details. I called them and somehow, my order had slipped through the technology crack. That afternoon, they packed the swag and threw in a complimentary travel bag for the error. Received it within the week, seasoned it and used it. Incredibly easy to set up, my son slept well so I'm guessing comfortable. It didn't rain so unsure how well it goes in rain but there were no drip patches in the swag after 3 wettings and im going to say that I'm sure ot will s… Read more · 1tand the test of time. The swag easily fits into the bag. It does take up a bit more room than I imagined but I'm thinking that's normal (never had a swag before). Overall, the product exceeds my expectations and my son couldn't be happier with his travel bag. Would definitely recommend purchasing from Kulkyne. We bought direct from them without viewing it at a stockist first.
Quality Swags, great customer serviceI recently purchased my second Kulkyne swag - the first I brought was a queen to replace a Kings double swag that had flogged out. TBH the kings swag was pretty good value but we went from using it once or twice a year to once or twice a month and it just didn’t stand up to it. Hence the upgrade to the Kulkyne - a mate had one and I had always been impressed with the quality. Had the queen for a couple of years now and has lived up to expectations, no worries - we look after it, making sure it’s dry and clean inside and out and it’s pretty well... Read more as new, despite a heap of use. We opted for the pillow top mattress - it’s comfy but seems to roll up pretty big and, I’m not 100% it’s the mattresses fault but we get more condensation between the floor n the mattress than I have with other swags - just means we often have to setup the swag at home after trips to make sure everything is dry, bit of a pain. The recent purchase is/was a single swag, for when away without the other half. I’ve only used it once but looks identical quality to the queen. It has a high density/standard mattress and I think I prefer it, but prob too early to tell. On delivery I realised the standard single is pretty small - I was aware of this on ordering so no knock on Kulkyne. I often camp out of my boat so wanted the swag to be compact but if I was to have my time over I would opt for the bigger king single or whatever it is. I’m only 5’6” and suggest anyone taller than me won’t fit in it, let alone ya bag etc… Kulkyne make a good product, I think people need to know that they are now made overseas, not here - but it doesn’t seem to have impacted the overall quality. Canvas, Stitching and even the aluminium poles/hoops are some of the best I’ve seen on swags - they simplified the centre spreader pole a while back and it’s now heaps better that the telescopic type that often seem to flog out. Buy one you won’t be disappointed..
Great swag!Great swag, comfy mattress, lots of airflow and the canvas seems to be good quality. The set up is easy and quick and rolled up the swag is not too big, so easy to fit in the car. The swag is excellent with the Kulkyne sleeping bag. I love the sleeping bag as it is warm without being too hot and has multiple warmth options which is great! Highly recommend this company, they also have excellent customer service, which ranks high in my book! All in all I am extremely happy with this swag and sleeping bag and would recommend it to everyone!
Just what I needed for student use!I needed tents for my High School students to use. It was great finding an Australian made tent at a competitive price made of tough materials. I've used them once and they lived up to their claims, being very easy to put up and able to withstand teenagers!
Great swagGreat swags. I have a king single and a double. Best swags I’ve had. Never had rain get in and plenty of ventilation in the hot weather we have the upgraded mattress in the double
Great swagI bought the King Single swag, with bag, stretcher and fitted sheet as extra. The swag is well made and easy set up. The mattress felt fine on the ground.
Well made productOnly stretcher I found large enough for double kings swag and still fairly easy to set up, great when camping in one spot for 2+ nights. Sturdy and very comfortable.
First Swag SessionBig boy deluxe mattress swags arrived. Took swags on first adventure. Very comfortable warm and dry all night. Bags provided have plenty of room to roll your sheet sleeping bag.
Excellent and works perfectly In harsh climates of outbackMe and my wife went to Alice Springs from Melbourne with our kulkyne double swag. It was an excellent choice. It withstood harsh climates of outback. But only down side is that you have to tie it down quite tight to prevent the sides from sagging. The tie down ropes provided broke only after few uses so I recommend bring higtensile paracord as a replacement when you go on an adventure.
First thing to go on roof rackIt's about time I reviewed my Big Boy swag. My brother and I purchased our swags in 2014 and use it at least 6 times a year, for a min of 5 days each time. The swag has been to the desert many times in torrential rain that lasted all week, to blistering 45deg + Summer days.
Absolutely no leaks in the rain, even when the ground is moving from being washed away. The swag is roomy enough keep all your stuff dry and sleep comfortably at night. When it's not raining I roll the storm flaps up revealing the full length heavy duty fly mesh on both sid... Read morees, nothing like looking up at the night sky in the bush, much better than TV! Prior to buying this swag I was a tent person, tried many different ones promising 5min up time, weather/water proof, none lived up to anything near what this swag can deliver. Roll her out, flexible rod in each end and one adjustable backbone/spine, done! If it takes you more than a couple of minutes to get it sleep ready, put your stubbie down and use both hands. Things I've added for a touch of luxury, Coleman rechargeable fan with built in led light and a thicker foam mattress. The mattress that comes with swag is OK on grass in Summer, but when it's cold and rocky, no. I've just purchased a Big Boy Stretcher which I'll review as soon as I use it. Not only does the stretcher lift your swag off the ground from the cold and rough surfaces, it makes it easier to put your boots on! The swag's canvass is slightly faded through a lot of heavy use in harsh environments, but that's it. The integrity is 100%, the zippers all work faultlessly, occasional spray of silicone spray helps. Overall, I really love my swag and IF it does bugger up, I wont hesitate to get another Kulkyne swag, best on the market hands down.
never lets me down-dry and comfortableI love camping in storms . Non stop rain pouring all night and never a drop inside. Made to last, super fast set up and pull down. Ive added a rubber yoga mat under the mattress. Best sleep i get Show details
When tripping Aus, this is your go-to swag!1) Old school quality canvas - Yes
2) Quality poles and stitching - Yes
3) Quick and simple set up and easy pack down - Yes!
4) Value for money?? Absolutely!
All the reasons why Kulkyne Swags should be your #1 choice for quality comfort when buying your next swag. To top it off they are Aussie! Don't settle for a cheap competitor that you will be replacing after 3 weeks of work due to poor quality! (True story) I wish we went Kulkyne first to save the hassle of what we went through!
Making the great outdoors even greaterWe have had this swag for over 9 months now and I cannot extol the virtues of it enough. Comfy, easy to set up/ take down, sturdy, compact when packed away, and suitable for all weather conditions.
We used this on an East Coast road trip where we were going to use it for times when we weren't staying with friends or 'spoiling' ourselves in hotels. We got the set up and take down to such an art that it only took a few minutes to do - even in pouring rain we could get it set up or take it down without a hitch. Oh and it was so comfortable that we... Read more never ended up spoiling ourselves in hotels, and quite often were tempted to set it up in friend's yards because it was so good that a standard mattress felt inferior. We had originally purchased an OZtrail Queen which didn't last more than one overnight trip before being damaged. It was only by chance that I stumbled upon a forum thread mentioning Kulkyne. I shall be forever grateful to that anonymous poster as they saved our trip - and if this post helps another, I will feel I've paid it forward. The Kulkyne Double Homestead not only withstood some seriously rough locations for weeks on end (uneven ground, sharp branches/ ground, rocky areas) without so much as a rip in the fly netting, but also heavy rain and winds. Oh, and our combined weight. And my partner's 6'5" height. The only thing we really had to do was add an extra foam layer (bought a queen size egg carton mattress topper and cut it down). We did this for added comfort, and extra warmth in Tasmania (got down to -4C and we were still toasty warm). Added to all this, dealing with Kulkyne as a company was a pleasure. Meeting someone who was as passionate about producing a top quality camping product as we are about owning them put our minds at ease. So in a nutshell... PROS - size/ length (esp when packed away) - comfort - ability to withstand all seasons/ weather types - durability (especially the swag materials) - build quality - ease and speed of set up CONS ... ummmm... None that I can think of TIPS - keep a couple of small blocks of wood to help with very uneven ground - add a mattress topper to the base for added warmth when camping in the cold, and for that extra level of comfort
Queen Dome swag with pillow top mattressSecond to none . Rolls out and sets up within a few seconds even a child can set this up , no need to peg it out if your only spending the night and the weather is good. It doesn't sag in the sides like others do. It is top quality throughout from the canvas to the zips to te heavy pvc flooring. Ours has the pillow top mattress which is very comfortable with it's 2 layers of low and high density foam. It's 220 cm in length so our feet were well away from the end, enough room for our dog to sleep at our feet . It was a terrible night for small b...

Rolled out beside us was a well known brand cheap copy yes at first glance they look similar, but when you get in and have a good look the quality surpasses it in every way.
Questions & Answers
Do we have to do anything to waterproof the swag before its first use? I have heard people say they need to be conditioned
The canvas itself if waterproof, but because the canvas had been stitched you need to wet down the swag and let it dry a couple of times to allow the canvas and stitching to lock into each other. This... Read moreis common with all canvas products that you want to waterproof.
