Born in the Australian Outback, the Kodiak Canvas Swag tent is a highly versatile, one-person, portable, sleep system. It is an advanced evolution of the traditional bedroll. Add a blanket or sleeping bag, and you have all you need to bed down. Unroll and set it up in a matter of minutes. It is six feet eight inches long and nearly three feet wide, providing a roomy sleeping space even for big guys. Use it on the ground, in the bed of a pickup, or with a compatible cot.*
It’s made with premium-grade, Hydra-Shield™, 100% cotton duck canvas. The tight weave and silicone finish make the canvas watertight yet breathable, minimizing condensation and mugginess. Unlike canvas tents of years past, our canvas will not wick water. Watertight and breathable, means you stay more comfortable. Aluminum alloy poles provide sturdy structure. The floor is a heavy-duty, puncture resistant, 16 oz vinyl that keeps water out. Unzip screened windows in the head and foot for air flow. These windows have small awnings over them so they can be opened even when it’s raining. When weather permits, roll the top cover back, and it’s like sleeping under the stars. The screen mesh keeps the bugs and critters out. Included is a 2-inch thick, open-cell, polyurethane foam mattress pad. The pad has a removable flannel cover that can be washed. When it’s time to move, the Swag packs up in no time—mattress pad, sleeping bag (sold separately), blankets and all. Everything is neatly rolled and ready for the next stop. When adventure calls, grab your swag and go.

So far I have only used it 3 nights, but it has been perfect. I love how well I can regulate the inside temperature by using the various screen windows to control air flow. I'm 6'4" and I roll around in the night. This was the perfect size for me. No complaints.
Ok, listen up. I’ve spent years in the field as a military person and also enjoy my time Outdoors as a civilian. This swag tent is absolutely amazing. The boys are jealous and I am comfortable. A few recommendations:
1. Buy an cot to put it on top.
2. Buy the Kodiak 0 degree sleeping bag - it fits perfect and let’s you sleep buck naked even when it’s about 30 degrees outside.
3- get the extra pole extension
This thing breathes well, but holds heat very well and regulates quickly. Plenty of windows to vent, and it’s keeps the bugs and water out.
Only used once so far but worked out great,.
After spending over 45 days in this tent, it has become my go to tent for camping. Quick set up and take down, incredible durability and the most comfortable mattress I have slept on. Conditions ranged from pouring rain to below freezing temps. If you are looking for a solid one person tent look no further.
I used my Swag during my September elk season. It is extremely comfortable and very warm. It rained for three days and I never got wet. Most nights I slept with the canvas cover unzipped because the swag holds heat so well I was getting to hot at night. The foam pad is very nice to sleep on. I would recommend the swag to anyone who wants the comfort of a canvas tent without the hassle of setting it up. Using the swag for hunting helps keep you mobile and is very comfortable.
made very well,a little big that's a good thing.
Spent 8 nights in this tent during the 2018 Rebelle Rally (team #184 @sass_quatch_rebelles) and many nights since. The tent is so easy to set-up and tear down that I managed both my teammate's and my tents in less time than other teams with those pop-up tents. We both slept amazingly thanks to one of the most comfortable sleep pads I've ever used. The tent was plenty long enough and wide enough for my 6ft tall frame.
I wish the tension pole had been included rather than an optional extra. The placement of the center tent pole is awkward, it needs to be further towards the feet and also attached to the outside of the tent. The only other slightly annoying thing is that I can't sit up inside the tent.
I slept in the tent again recently and still think that the quality of sleep far outweighs my few minor annoyances.
I haven’t actually used it yet but I set it up and it looks and feels really well built with lots of overlapping material around the portion of the zipper that goes over your head, hopefully keeping the rain away. The middle poles and foot poles are really close to the same size so I numbered mine for easy ID. And the sleeve inside at the head of the tent for the poles is a really nice touch. I do wish the bag for it was a bit bigger though. Once you put a sleeping bag and pillow in there it’s really tough to get it rolled up tight enough to get it back in there and its so overstuffed zipping it up is impossible. Overall, I’m confident that this will last me many years and do well in many climates.
Great tent overall. Clean, easy setup. Very comfortable and retains body heat due to small size. The add-on pole that stabilizes the ends, really should be an included piece, giving the option to use the pole or tie-downs. Not sure what the rating is for being waterproof or just water resistant, but there appears to be many micro fabric holes. Probably doesn't prevent rain water from seeping in. Regardless, it very comfortable and is overall a great single person tent! Would recommend to other campers/overlanders!
Hey John --thanks for the review. Those micro holes seal up after the canvas is seasoned. Our hydra-shield canvas has superb waterproofing. You should not have a drop of water on the inside.
