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.

It's low profile plus it's made out of canvas it's tough and I like how the waterproof floor of the tent comes up a few inches on the sides and that's thick also. It was worth every penny I spent on it I love it. If you want a tent that's low profile and tough this is the tent to get you will not be disappointed and make sure you season it when you get it.
I like the quality of the materials. Looking Forward to testing this out this summer and fall. Great kit!
Took me 6 minutes to setup cot, tent, and have sleeping bag in. I put a klymit luxe in, it was not needed. You will need a right handed sleeping bag if u want to use the little mat that’s included. 30 mph winds didn’t knock it off my cot and when all zipped couldn’t even tell that the wind was blowing. Zippers are great, setup is easy, it is warm, you not need a big heavy bag with this setup. I also purchased the support pole, I don’t know if it’s needed but for 19 bucks I’m sure I won’t regret having it.
Easy to set up, really good quality
Top quality materials used and craftsmanship appear to be above average. If you need a swag this offering is a great choice for the USA. Be aware this a niche product, rolls up into a large size. Best use is vehicle camping, such as overlanding.
Very good construction, robust zippers should last well.
I had the opportunity to use this swag tent over a 4 night camping trip to the Sierra National Forrest; & let me say, this tent exceeded my expectations! 2 of the 4 nights we experienced a heavy thunderstorm with extreme rain and this tent stayed completely dry. (Before I took the ‘swag’ camping, I treated the Canvas by wetting it and letting it completely dry). I placed the tent on top of a cot. The combination of the cot and the 2” foam mattress that is included with the swag tent, equated to the most comfortable night sleep I have ever had while camping. The quality and workmanship of this tent is impeccable. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. Side Note: Kodiak also supports Law enforcement and Military personnel. Good on you guys Kodiak. Thank you for making a superior product!
Great product, only change i would improve on is making the verticle bug screen at tge head to have a zipper to fold down just like the top part. This woukd allow you to grab items you may have staged just outside the tent and would make an excellent prone shooting blind allowing you to fire your rifle from.
Now that I've used it a couple times, I can say that I almost totally love this tent. It's quick to setup, holds up well in the rain, and is surprisingly warm, but can vent incredibly well if needed to. A note about drying out: always remove the pad. Because the base is basically a water tight boat, any moisture that seeps down the sides will stay there until the pad is removed. The biggest issue is the damn center pole. Everything about it feels half baked: the chintsy velcro that you use to hold it in place, the fact that it's almost as small as the smallest pole (I marked mine with some tape to differentiate,) and the internal anchor points are starting to rub the base material in ways that I find concerning (I put felt pads to to ease with wear, but we'll see how long they last. If Kodiak read these and are open to feedback, I have a couple ideas: 1. Ditch the velcro and put a damn sleeve in for the center pole. 2. Use more excess material when attaching the center anchor point so that the flaps come up on both sides to prevent rubbing Other than those quibbles, these tent has been amazing and I hope it'll last me for a long while
