This small ground tent is an Australian staple known commercially as a swag. While it may look like the combination of a bivvy and pup-tent to most North Americans, the SkyDome swag boasts some remarkable features that will have you stowing your current car camping tent in the garage permanently. This little beauty is fully waterproof and made of water and rot proof canvas, heavy enough that you won't have to worry about snags or tears or damage from rolling around the back of your 4x4. With the optional cargo swag-bag (coming soon), strap it to your roof rack or spare tire and save your precious cabin space for more weather sensitive items. Another key benefit to this unit is that it comes complete with a thick and comfortable mattress and the SkyDome is designed for you to keep your sleeping bag and pillow inside. Simply roll it up with all your bedding inside and when you get to camp roll it out. 3 short poles keep the SkyDome deployed and its external clip system means your whole camp will be set up in under 3 minutes.
Design & Development:
The challenge with the SkyDome was to design a swag that suits the needs of our market. Having a 4x4 allows people of all shapes and sizes to experience this great country, so we made a swag that is conducive to their needs:
Waterproof - Suitable for various weather conditions
Spacious - Available in both single and double widths
Comfortable - Mattress included
Freestanding - Fast set up with 3 poles and external clip system
Saves space - Pillow and bedding are intended to be rolled up and transported inside swag
Packed full of features
SkyDome is very generous in length, width and height. The industry leading height from head to hip gives you plenty of space without feeling
confined under the canvas. The extra height takes away that claustrophobic feeling and allows you to relax, bend your knees and enjoy reading that bedtime novel.
The SkyDome single swag is 82.7” L x 35.4” W x 33.5” H. The SkyDome double swag is 82.7” L x 55.1” W x 31.5” H.
The size and shape of the SkyDome is the basis of the comfort level, while the large mesh area enables fantastic ventilation to reduce internal condensation. On the single swag, the large canvas door can be opened past the center point, revealing night sky vision, and the doors on the double swag both meet in the middle providing uninterrupted vision from the dual occupancy sleeping position.
A low side entry door makes it easier to enter and exit the swag and put on your boots while sitting in the swag. The mattress is made from 3” thick high density convoluted foam with anti-microbial additives to reduce allergies. The breathable and non-rustling mattress cover can be easily removed (zipper) and is machine washable.
The freestanding design allows you to select the best place to roll out your swag on a flat piece of real estate away from potential falling branches or on surfaces where guy rope deployment and tethering is difficult. This includes indoors, under verandas, on sand, rock or even man made surfaces such as concrete.
A series of bows and rods made from noncorrosive 11mm anodized aluminium provide the structure of the SkyDome. On the double swag the body rod is centralized, yet the single swag allows you to select a central position or offset side position for improved vision of the night sky.
The SkyDome is strategically designed to accommodate differing weather patterns. For hot climates, the canvas door(s) and external head and foot awnings can be rolled up and secured
on the toggles to reveal the fly/mosquito mesh for improved air circulation. Alternatively, they can be deployed and secured horizontally to provide shade from the sun. The light sandstone color was
chosen to help reflect the heat.
If the wind picks up, you can shut each awning independently and still keep some ventilation open. However if a dust storm approaches, the additional internal storm flaps can be zipped up to
prevent dust ingress.
For wet conditions the SkyDome is unique. Featuring a heavy duty 820 gsm PVC base with PVC welded seams, it is fully waterproof. The PVC base extends 3” (same height as the mattress) up the side of the swag to prevent water seepage from puddles or during light flooding.
The specified heavy duty canvas is water and rot proofed to Australian Standards and the core spun wax thread will swell to prevent water seeping through the stitching.
Commonly referred to as a shooters window, the head window incorporates a full double slider zipped mesh panel so that it can be lowered to allow access through the end of the swag.
Many overlanders and outdoor enthusiast wear wide brim hats, and to prevent the hat from being squashed we have incorporated a clever hat holder on the underside of the head awning – accessible from the shooters window.
Inside the swag there are 4 generous pockets to house your belongings, positioned to the sides of the shooters window at the head end.
Key & Flashlight Hooks:
Included above the shooters window are two hooks and a velcro strap to conveniently hold a range of torches, camp lights or keys.
Keeping a high level of component specification, the zippers are the world renowned YKK brand and feature dual sliders to position the opening wherever you want.
A sewn in rain gutter is placed beside the door zip to help direct any water that gets under the storm flap away from the zipper, ensuring water cannot seep through the zip.
Head & Foot Awnings:
The head and foot awnings incorporate a solid rod to prevent flapping in the breeze and allow for single guy rope deployment. The supplied guy ropes include a reflective weave (from torchlight) to prevent tripping at night time.
Straps & Buckles:
Securing the swag when rolled are two 1.5” ARB embroidered webbing straps with plastic buckles rated to 285 lbs and connected to a rubber grip carry handle.
8 pegs (5mm x 250mm long) are provided with every swag. Keeping your pegs, rods and bows together is a 2 pocket PVC accessory bag.
