Darche have named Dee as their ultimate freestanding tourer in their range, and you can certainly see why. The Dee stands completely upright thanks to the clever pole trigger locking system which makes it as roomy as a small tent.
The mesh covered windows are massive so you can unzip the fly to catch a glimpse of your beautiful surroundings while you chill out in your shelter. One of the really great features of Darche swags are their mattresses – which are the kind that are actually comfortable enough on their own without the need to add extra padding for grabbing some shut eye.
You can get Dee ready for a good night’s rest lightning fast – so it’s perfect for the touring lifestyle. Over the years a swag can become like an old friend, who you’ve shared a long list of adventures with, so make sure you invest in a good quality shelter like the Dirty Dee to accompany you wherever you go.
I've owned a few swags over the years but this is the best by far. Plenty of head room and width. There are a couple of design features I'd change but they're not the end of the world.
This single swag is easy and quick to set up. The sliding ridge poles and quick lock catches are excellent. Manufacturing quality seems good. The sewn on straps and roomy swag bag make pack up easy. I find the mattress quite comfortable and I have matched the swag with a Darche sleeping bag. Important to wet the swag several times before use.
Hi! Would this swag be difficult to roll up by yourself? Have read that some other swags are difficult to roll up by yourself
As this one is only 900mm wide which is the typical single size, this one isn't too bad. However, it does become harder the wider the swag is.
what is the volume of the carry bag? so that i can figure out the rolled up swag size
The Darche Dirty Dee 900 Swag Bag is 90cm wide with a diameter of approximately 45cm, which is reflective of the swag when rolled up (without bedding).
How long does it take to set it up and then pack it away?
When we put our display up in store it took between 10-15 minutes, and it was about the same for packing it up.
Keep in mind that it will depend on your experience with swags, so it may be a good idea to give it a try before you go on a trip to make sure you get the hang of it.
