When it comes to camping having all the right gear can make all the difference. A good mesh ground sheet has a lot of benefits, some of which are not immediately obvious. Below we’ll provide you with all the reasons you should consider purchasing a ground sheet for your swag.

A mesh ground sheet is made from durable shade cloth with binding on the edges and eyelets for pegs throughout. They are designed to be strong and to protect the underside of your swag from the ground.


Why Use a Mesh Ground Sheet Under Your Swag?

There are many reasons to use a mesh ground sheet under your swag. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Protection from the Ground: A mesh ground sheet is a durable barrier between the PVC base of your swag and the ground, protecting the PVC from sticks and rocks.
  • Improved Ventilation: The mesh material used in the ground sheet allows and air pocket between your PVC base and the ground. This helps prevent condensation (sweeting) between the PVC and the ground and between the PVC and your swag mattress.
  • Easy to Clean: In perfectly dry weather the base of your PVC swag can still end up muddy from the condensation. The mesh ground sheet keeps everything dry and clean and the ground sheet itself can be easily shaken clean.
  • Protects the Grass: A mesh ground sheet allows air flow between the base of your swag and the grass, ensuring you don’t kill the grass. This is a must have in some caravan parks!

What to Look for When Buying a Mesh Ground Sheet?

When purchasing a mesh ground sheet for use under your swag, there are several key factors to consider. These include:

  • Durability: Make sure the ground sheet is made from high quality mesh and the edges are sewn/bound in a way that makes them durable. This also adds support to the eyelets which also must be up to the job.
  • Size and Fit: You want the ground sheet to be the right size. Too big, is just more stuff to carry, and too little won’t keep all your swag clean and dry. Our mesh ground sheets are made to match the size of our swags (including boot-bag).

A: Simply pick up the ground sheet and shake out the mesh. If it does get muddy because of wet weather, you can hose it off.
