If you’re the kind of person that lies there in your swag with your partner wishing that you had just a little more room to move around in, then the Darche Nebula 2400 will be a dream come true. It's more of a tent than a swag, the height and space similar to a 3 person tent, but with the convenient set up of a swag.
This is a four season hybrid swag that’ll get you through all weather conditions. From inside you can get Instagram-worthy panoramic 360° views – so you can leave the canvas windows unzipped and get a good view on warm summer nights while ventilating thanks to the mesh windows. In the dead of winter, you can zip everything up and stay cosy and warm while Mother Nature does her thing right outside your door.
If you need a new outdoor shelter that combines the best of what a swag and tent has to offer then you can’t go past the Nebula for your next trip or tour around this beautiful country.
I really love the look of this tent and that it has 4 walls of windows and entries. It is a solid tent and great for summer. After the 2nd use the clip on one of the poles fell out hence making it award to setup as the frame starts to twist. After about the 4th use the spigot fell out from the ridge pole which luckily fell out in the bag. I've emailed Darche no less than 3 times and not a single reply. Their 1300 contact number also never gets picked up. I can't recommend a tent that you can't get replacement parts for.
Oh no, I'm sorry to hear that Kev! If you bought your Nebula from us (even if you didn't), we want to help out and fix the problem. If you could send us an email [email protected] with a couple of photos, we'll jump straight onto it. Laine
I've had the 2400 now for about 8 months and absolutely love it. Being able to open up all 4 side walls allows for a heap of airflow, which is great when the sun is beaming down in Summer. Note that the tent can get hot without the windows open, which is an issue for all canvas tents. Not dramas though once the windows are open. I've used it a couple of times over the winter too, and the canvas works well to keep out the elements. It's never let me down.
The walls of the tent are pretty much vertical too, so you get a decent amount of space inside. It looks as good in real life as it does in the photos too.
I don't know why they call this a swag. it's a bloody tent. Must be trying to appeal to a broader market.
One thing I would mention that I wasn't too keen on is that there are no plugs on the bottom of the tent poles. Each of the four bottom corners of the tent has pins which the tent poles are supposed to slide over, securing the poles in place. The opening to the bottom of the poles is about 15mm wide, while the pins are about 4mm wide. This means they rattle around and do nothing for support. I ended up going down to bunnings and buying some $5 standard pole plugs and screwing a hole in the middle of them. Works a treat. No complaints at all after that modification.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend this tent. It's well worth the money. I'm expecting to have this for years to come. 5 stars from me.
Hi, does the awning of the fly go off both sides or just one? Is the awning off what appears to be the "side window" rather than the "door" based on the step over height? Do the window covers have a triangled zipped open position for airflow but storm protection....or is there enough protected openings anyway? Thanks and Snowys service is always awsome! :-) Phil
The awning only runs off to one side.
The Darche Nebula 2400 can be accessed from all large openings on all sides. The product video will give you a clearer idea of how this works.
Sorry - I'm not sure what you mean by this question 'Do the window covers have a triangled zipped open position for airflow but storm protection....or is there enough protected openings anyway?'
Re triangle query, are the canvas rolldown window covers able to be zipped down but opened out at the bottom as there are gusset triangles of canvas down each side? Kind regards Phil
If you fast forward the video on the product page to 3:34, you'll be able to see the windows being unzipped, which shows that there aren't any gussets on the windows, of the Nebula 2400 unfortunately.
Does the fly cover only half, or the whole of the roof? It's hard to tell in the photos; looks like it only covers half. Thanks.
The fly of the Nebula 2400 Swag does indeed cover the entire roof.
Hi Snowys, Would this fit a queen size mattress?
As long as the queen size mat is under 230L x 230W cm (which most would be) you shouldn't have any issues fitting one inside the Nebula 2400, as it's very roomy!
Can you confirm there is no mattress in this tent/swag, just a bucket floor
Yes that's right Garth, you'll need to supply your own mattress with this one!
It's a good size, so you could comfortably fit a double or a couple of single mats in there, with some room left over to store your gear.
Hi Guys! Love the look of this tent! Can we possibly get a Youtube video popped together on this one? There's nothing online anywhere. No reviews, nothing. Big ask, I know. Not even Darche have uploaded a video together on this one.
Great idea Brad!
We'll give it our best crack this week, and we'll let you know as soon as we can make it happen.
The video of the Nebula is now online, we had heaps of fun making it - so I hope you enjoy it and find it helpful!
