What precisely is a Swag?
Is Swag a general term for a shelter, or is it more specific?
From recently looking at pics of various Swags, they seem to take many forms.
What is the range of forms that a Swag may take? What materials are they generally construted of?
Do they all have padded floors? Bug Protection? etc.
Do any use trekking poles for support?
What are the differences, if any, to the Aussie/NZ mind between a swag, a bivy, and a tent or tarptent?
I've never seen the term "Swaggie". Is it not proper to call a Swag a "Swaggie"?
Many thanks in advance for the insightful replies that i'm sure to receive.
