Top notch

Takes a little adjustment to get the right balance between ventilation and warmth but talk about a comfortable nights sleep! Super easy setup and pack up. Feels sturdy and the waterproof floor lets you snooze away in complete confidence of waking up dry.

Oztrail Mitchell Expedition Swag

Recently spent the weekend away in my Snowys Swag. My partner had purchased his from another company. Although both swags appeared to be the same, however mine was longer and had a much thicker mattress and was overall a much better swag.

Apr 12 2016


Came in 4 working days. Was dispatched within a few hours of ordering. Quality is great and price is stupidly cheap! One of my best online purchases ever. Very happy! Thanks snowys

What colours does this Mitchell Expedition swag come in?

- Edmonton(7 months ago)

G'day Teagan,

The Mitchell Expedition only comes in Khaki. 

- Snowys(7 months ago)

Ideal for real swagging? 1 answer

I plan to travel between weeks to months. Walking around the east coast of Australia. My main concern is if this will be fully waterproof for a real Rambler. Nothing worse then getting a tent/swag and finding on the first rainy night that everything is damp. I want to remain dry if by some freak accident it rains for months on end.

- Ballarat(7 months ago)

These are waterproof Some Rambler, but given the cotton component of canvas fabric, extended wet periods could see some of the fabric start to wet out a little, and this could take a while to dry.

You'd still stay dry on the inside though, it's more about the fabric getting wet than water leaking in. I'd recommend taking some form of tarp shelter to put over your swag if you expect this type of weather. This would reduce the amount of rain directly hitting your swag and doubles as a cooking shelter. Something like the Oztrail Hiker fly with a couple of upright spigot poles would do the trick. Hope this helps.

Length 1 answer

I am 6ft 4in, would I fit in this swag?

- Menai(8 months ago)

G'day Richard,

You'll have no issue fitting into the Oztrail Mitchell Expedition Swag as it fits people up to 210cm in length.

Oztrail mitchell expedition swag & Oztrail Mitchell king single swag1 answer

Hi, Do you know what the difference between the Oztrail mitchell expedition swag & Oztrail Mitchell king single swag is. Thanks

- Arcadia(9 months ago)

G'day Max,

The two swags are basically identical except the "Expedition" has a PVC Vinyl base whereas the "King Single" has a 330gsm Satproof™ Canvas base. 

- Snowys(8 months ago)

Whats the best sleeping bag to use in this?1 answer

Hi I'm going to the cape in August, what's the best sleeping bag or should I use a liner and blanket?

- Brisbanbe(10 months ago)

Hi Wayne,

I spent 6 weeks up the Cape in July last year and we never actually used a sleeping bag, just a sheet. Average overnight temperatures at that time of year are still in the low 20's. If you particularly want a sleeping bag I would look at the ones we sell which are suited to 10 degrees: Sleeping bags for warmer weather.

- Snowys(10 months ago)

Are the mattresses in these swags removable?1 answer

I'd like to remove the mattress and put in my Exped Megamat. Are they removable? Thanks

- Moonah(1 year ago)

G'day Justin, 

I've just checked the display model, and the Mitchell Expedition definitely has a removable mattress.

As for the Megamat, I can't blame you for wanting to make your swag extra comfy - the dimensions for the Mitchell and the Megamat 10 LXW match up, so you should be good to go!

Difference in size? 1 answer

What's the difference in size between the expedition & a king single? Also, do you have to use the third pole in the middle?

- Smithton(1 year ago)

G'day Brianna, 

There is no difference in size between the Mitchell Expedition and the Mitchell King Single, the main feature that seperates the two is that the Mitchell King Single has a Canvas floor, whereas the Mitchell Expedition has a PVC Vinyl floor. 

I've just checked for you, and no you don't have to use the middle pole - it just means that the swag will rest closer to your body, while you sleep. 

- Snowys(1 year ago)

What bag should I buy for this1 answer

- Wamuran/Qld(1 year ago)

G’day Richard, I’ve just double checked for you myself and out of our carry bag range, the Oztrail King Single Swag Bag (Snowys code: 37314) is the best fit for the Oztrail Mitchell Expedition Swag.

- Snowys(1 year ago)

How viable is hiking?1 answer

With a whole lot of my other gear being very lightweight, how realistic would it be to take this swag on a 3-4 night hike? I'm trying to find a middle ground between hike-camping and beside-car-camping

- WOLLONGONG, NSW(1 year ago)

Hi Nathan, the Mitchell weighs 8kg so for a 4 day hike it would not be very realistic to carry when you add your pack weight to that figure. If you’re set on a swag the most suitable and lightest one is the Oztrail Biker (Snowy's code: 36287) which is 5kg and packs down smaller than the Mitchell. However we would recommend a hiking tent for your use. The best entry level hiking tent we have is the Companion Pro Hiker 1 tent (code: 37307) – this would be your best bet as it’s a good price point, weighs 2.3kg, and comes with its own rainfly for water protection.

How many poles and size difference1 answer

Does the Mitchell expedition have three poles or two? Is there a size and weight difference between the Mitchell expedition and King version?

- Cairns(1 year ago)
G'day Simon - Both the Mitchell Expedition and Mitchell King have two poles: one at the foot and one at the head. As for size and weight - they're both pretty much identical. The main difference between the two is the King has a far better quality floor, and the canvas, despite what the manufacturing specs tell us, feels different. The King is worth paying a little extra for. It is a much better swag and will last you a lot longer. Hope that helps. Cheers, Paul

What is the difference?2 answers

How does the Mitchell Expedition compare to the Mitchell King Single and the Lachlan? The features look very similar, yet I see it is a lot cheaper?

- ALTONA, VIC(3 years ago)
Thanks for your question Tanya, The three swags have a similar design however the materials used are the differentiating features. The end use should be considered in order to select the material that is best suited to your needs. The Mitchell Expedition has a PVC vinyl floor whereas the the Mitchell King Single has a ripstop canvas floor. The Lachlan is the next step up with a hard wearing vinyl tub floor which is particularly good for wet conditions. The Lachlan also features an 11 ounce canvas outer which is slightly heavier however much stronger than the 10 ounce used in the Mitchell models. It also features a few extra deluxe options like a slightly thicker mattress, a shooters door which allows top exit and a boot mat to keep the interior clean.
- Snowys(3 years ago)
I was discussing this in-store yesterday. To put it simply: the Mitchell Expedition is the 'entry level' dome swag option. It has all the features at an amazing price. The Mitchell King has all the same features (minus the PVC floor) overall quality of the canvas does feel better on the Mitchell King despite the manufacturer's specs being listed as the same. I also find the middle pole fits better than on the Expedition. (The expedition puts a bit of stress on the materials.) This is why you are paying a bit more for the Mitchell King. The Lachlan has obvious features and benefits that are definitely worth the added cost.
