A canvas bedroll commonly used in Australia. Consists of a thin mattress inside a canvas covering, may contain poles to keep the roof raised like a small tent, insect mesh to keep bugs out and other creature comforts. Rolls up for compact storage afterwards. Most swags are about 2 ft (60cm) wide and about 1 ft (30cm) thick once rolled up.
1)Got sick of things in the city, so I chucked my swag on the back of the bike and headed out into the bush for a few weeks. Rolled it out on the top of a hill and watched the beautiful starry sky while I fell asleep. Easy way to forget my problems.
2) Mind if I stay at your place after the party? I bought my swag, I'll just roll it out in oyur lounge room.
