With a full length zip on the storm cover, and down the head wall you’ll have plenty The lightweight construction may save you weight on the back of your bike, but that doesn’t mean it’s not hardwearing. It’s got the Darche stamp on it, so you know it’s going to be able to withstand harsh conditions.
Made especially for the road, you can rely on the Ranger Biker Solo Swag to weather all kinds of conditions that the road throws at you.
My previous swag was a Burked&Wills. The compactness of the Ranger when in use and rolled up really surprised me. It's the quickest/easiest swag I've set up. Once inside the swag with a sleeping bag etc, there was no room between myself and the top canvas (this didn't bother me, but is worth considering when buying). The mattress was fine, if only a bit more narrow than what I'm used to. No complaints - it did the job. If you're willing to compromise on a few features to gain a more compact swag then this is the perfect option.
We are planning a 2 week motorcycle tour of Ireland (The wild Atlantic Way) so we may be swagging in heavy rain and moving location daily. Are either the Darche or Oztrail suitable, or should I go with a Oztrail Lachlan. Weight isn't an issue as we will be riding one-up. It may not be possible for the swag to dry out day-to-day. Thanks for any advice. Think of Queensland rain without the heat :-)
If you're anticipating heavy rain and have the ability to carry it, I would definitely recommend the Oztrail Lachlan Swag. The canvas is much thicker (380gsm Satproof™ Canvas) which will offer much better protection and the additional middle pole will provide much greater drainage support so that the water will run off your swag, rather than pooling in the middle. The Lachlan also comes with a much thicker mattress, additional ventilation points and more durable PVC through the base which will all assist with both protection and drying.
What is the main difference in a biker swag? How are they able to roll up so much smaller? Will they not retain as much heat as regular swags?
Biker swags are narrower and shorter, and will have a thinner mattress which is how they can roll up smaller to fit on the back of a bike. They will offer the same warmth, weather, and insect protection as a regular sized swag of the same calibre though Joshua.
