The Darche AWOL 900 swag is the kind of swag you can rely on in basically any situation. With the ability to cope with a wide range of conditions from the red-hot centre of Australia, all the way up to the high country of Australia – the humble AWOL won’t let you down.
Made from Darche’s signature rot proof and ripstop canvas, it’ll weather all kinds of conditions so that you won’t have to. You won’t miss out on that view of the southern skies, as this swag has a full mesh top that’ll give you that stellar view and will keep condensation at bay. There’s nothing worse than feeling constricted and suffocated inside your swag. That’s why Darche have added an alternative entry at the top of the swag to keep a steady flow of air going inside your shelter.
The three-hoop structure will keep the swag away from your body – giving you that extra breathing room for a more spacious and liveable interior. For a solid night’s sleep under the stars, you can’t go past the Darche AWOL.
This was a Christmas present for my daughter and was tested in the VIC High Country for a couple of weeks. Pretty good quality compared to some others we have had. Definitely not the easiest or quickest to set up and pack up I reckon about about a medium for this part. Zippers could be better quality although still better than any Jet Tent product. It is water proof and the PVC floor works well (It poured down for about 3 days). Most annoying thing I found with this swag is the roll up straps are too short. If they were 100mm longer it would be so much easier to pack up with the sleeping bag inside. How it is standard with the straps too short makes it really hard to roll tight with a sleeping bag left in there. 10/10 for Snowys service and delivery again! It was a last minute present idea for my daughter and Snowys made the effort to get it to me in time for Christmas. Overall you get what you pay for and this is not a high end swag. It is a good swag for the price.
Thanks for your detailed review Mitchel. You've pretty much hit on exactly what Darche set out to achieve with their AWOL, or in particular their Urban range of products. They are designed to be an affordable swag, in order to do this they have used materials and minimised features whilst keeping build quality as best they could. I've no doubt that your daughter will get more than her (or your) money's worth out of this swag. ~ Ben
xmas present for my wife. Excellent quality. Mattress has sturdier foam than my Oztrail. Easy to erect, fine screen for midges. No sagging, my wife particularly wanted one with space above bodyVery happy. Jim
Our new swag is not “ going” at all, because nearly 6 weeks after ordering, paying for and receiving the swag with incorrect poles we are still awaiting replacement poles. Our swag is lying unassembled and unused so we can’t comment on the swag, only that Darche have been slow to act. We hope the problem will be resolved soon, at which time we will be happy to review the product.
Oh no, I'm sorry to hear that Diane! After-sales service is a big deal to us, so please send us an email (email@example.com) and we'll sort out the correct poles for your new swag right away. Laine
Some of the darche swags have got a mattress smaller than that of the room given by the swag proper (eg biker solo). Just wondering if this mattress fills all the real estate?
The mattress on the Darche Urban AWOL 900 Swag goes virtually right up to the edge of the floor.
