This one’s for the astronomers, with tons of room you and your dog, or a squeezy double, the Darche Dusk To Dawn 1100 Swag features two large entries that roll completely open for an unimpeded view of the night sky.
The Dusk Till Dawn is a freestanding swag that caters to all users and provides an ultimately comfortable sleeping space with a 5cm high density foam mattress. Vents at both ends feature large storm flaps, and zippers inside allow access to the vestibule space above your head.
A heavy duty PVC bucket floor provides protection from sodden ground while 400gsm proofed rip-stop poly-cotton canvas covers the full length superfine mesh for versatility in any weather condition.
The swag itself is great. Seems to be well made.
The included instructions was very vague and very little info about seasoning the canvas before use.
The included mattress is average to poor. It's only 50mm and not overly comfortable on uneven/rocky ground. I've subsequently added another 50mm egg crate topper to it (fits in the mattress cover also). This helps a lot.
I've read a lot of conflicting opinions on whether Darche swags are actually midge/sand-fly proof. I know all swags are vulnerable to some extent, but are Darche better/worse than most?
Great question. Darche midge/sand-fly proof mesh is no worse than many other brands of the same price/quality. However, as you've noted, there is an element of vulnerability which is ultimately dependant on situation and environment.
I am a scout and I want a quick and simple swag to set up, does this take long to set up you think?
The Darche Dusk To Dawn Swag 1100 mattress is 5cm thick and takes around 5 minutes to unroll and set up.
Because I am a scout who camps in many different conditions. And I am looking at this swag.
G’day Cameron, if you’re looking for a high quality all-rounder swag that will suit 2-3 season weather then the Darche Dusk To Dawn is a good pick because it's spacious, well ventilated, and has good water protection. Like with any swag, there are always limitations especially in extreme weather so just bear that in mind.
