Tough, reliable and made in a traditional dome swag style – the Mitchell Expedition Swag makes touring and camping a cinch thanks to its dependable design.
Made from tough 230gsm SatProof ripstop canvas for durability and PVC vinyl shield floor, with three Durallium 7001 alloy poles to give it its structure. The full-size No-See-Um mesh panels allow for plenty of fresh air flow and will also keep insects out of your swag while you snooze.
If you’re expecting a drizzle of rain, then you can just zip the entry up and ventilate your swag thanks to the head and foot awnings. The 5cm high-density open-cell foam mattress provides a solid base to snooze, and when you’re inside your swag, you can stash your valuables easily in the internal storage pockets.
With everything you need for a solid night’s sleep outdoors, the Mitchell Expedition from OZtrail is perfect for your touring adventures.
Really happy with the delivery and quality of the swag - so much so that my brother was convinced to order an identical one from Snowys. The only disappointment is that the swag did not come with a storage bag to protect it from dust ingress and abrasion, nor did the swag's alloy poles and tent pegs have storage bags.
Very happy with swag. Easy set up and pretty comfortable. Not too big which is what I wanted. Happy with purchase.
Happy with everything. The mattress is good but not great. Besides this happy with product and would buy another
Planning on bringing Home with me to Ireland when I go, as you may know though stereotypes it rains a lot at home.
The Oztrail Mitchell Expedition Single Swag has a Waterhead rating of 600mm, which means it's good for light showers for brief periods of time. If you're going to get heavy rain in Ireland, then I'd suggest that it's maybe not the greatest option for you. If you'd like to understand these Waterhead ratings a little better, you can check out our blog on the matter here.
I just purchased this swag and when it arrived I discovered to my dismay it doesn't come with a bag. Which bag would you recommend?
I would suggest that the best bag for your Oztrail Mitchell Expedition Single Swag would be the Oztrail Canvas Swag Bag - King Single. It should fit nicely in there!
just curious if the dimensions equate to a king single.
I've just checked with our swag expert, Nev, and he said that the Oztrail Mitchell Expedition Single Swag is as long as a King Single but is only as wide as a single mattress. So you'll get the extra length but not the extra width.
Trying to understand the difference between the old and new models.
Great question. Oztrail have made a few changes to the Mitchell Expedition swag. The two notable ones are that the canvas has been reduced from 330gsm to 230gsm and the mattress thickness from 6cm to 5cm.
Mitchell Expedition Single Swag.
I've just pulled the tape measure out, tried not to compress the foam at all and got a measurement for the mattress of 208L x 88W x 5H cm.
What are the main differences between this swag, the Biker Swag and the Sturt Expedition?
The Oztrail Biker Swag is a lightweight and compact swag designed for bike touring so it's much lighter and smaller than most swags. This is reflected in the fabric type, space available in the swag and number of poles.
The Oztrail Mitchell Expedition and Oztrail Sturt Expedition are both fantastic entry level swags that in many respects are very much the same. The key differences are that the Sturt is a little smaller in size (10cm shorter in length and 15cm in width) and only has 2 poles, not 3 - the poles are also made of different materials.
