Throughout the history of Australia freedom and life in the vast expanses of unspoiled nature was always important. Even in the unofficial national hymn "Waltzing Matilda" the Australians sing passionately about these topics.
The surreal story of a "jolly swagman" is told in a typical self-mocking slang. He travels with his "swag" – a simple sleeping mat, made of canvas. This mat bearing the endearing nickname of Matilda is still frequently used and treasured in the Australian outback. After a fight with a sheep rancher, the travelling swagman chose death in a "Billabong" (watering hole) over the loss of his freedom.
Even early explorers, adventurers and gold miners used waterproof canvas as a protection against the wind and foul weather. This canvas material has been further developed and perfected to obtain what we use today in our tents: a material at its best in weatherproofing and breath ability. 3DOG camping uses only materials that have proven their worth in this way. In combination with loving craftsmanship this gives the products the desired quality and durability.
