All the features of the ever popular Mitchell swag, only the Oztrail Mitchell Expedition comes with a PVC vinyl floor for added water protection and easy cleaning.

A full length top opening with both canvas and No-See-Um mesh layers provides easy access. Weather proof head and foot awnings facilitate ventilation and heavy duty roll straps are incorporated into the design for simple pack up.

Staff tip:This swag comes in a tightly compressed manner, it's easier to store and transport that way. Before use, we recommend leaving the swag unrolled for a few days to allow the mattress to expand to its full potential.

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.

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

Oztrail Swag

Second time I have used Snowys and both times excellent service Cannot fault the Aerobed and now the OZtrail Mitchell Expedition Single swag. Fantastic service and quick delivery. Prices are much cheaper than other retailers with the same products. My favourite camping store now . Will be buying more swags

Swagging good time

Bought the swag online, turned up fast and in good condition.
Had an issue with Mattress that was sorted by Snowys as soon as I mentioned it.

Is a good unit and easy to set up, comfy and plenty of space.

Difference in size? 1 answers

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 month 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.

What bag should I buy for this1 answers

- Wamuran/Qld(5 months 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.

How viable is hiking?1 answers

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(6 months 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 answers

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

- Cairns(9 months 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(1 year 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.

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.
