We recommend that new Darche swags are thoroughly wet down before first use. This will ensure that your swag or tent performs well in wet weather by allowing the poly/cotton corespun thread and canvas to swell ensuring the take up of any potential leaks in the stitching.
- Do not use soap or detergents on the canvas.
- Do not store the product if wet, allow to dry first.
- To clean use a soft brush and cold water.
- Do not expose to petrol, oils or harsh chemicals.
Condensation is a natural occurrence in cold weather. In confined areas like swags and tents the body releases more moisture than the canvas can dispose of. To minimise the chance of condensation, we recommend slightly opening the window of the swag or tent to enable airflow on cold nights.
The Darche Megadome Swag is covered by the Darche Lifetime Warranty (exclusions apply).
Reviews of Darche Megadome King Single Dome Swag
Darche Megadome King Single Dome Swag(5) By: Craig Hyood on 16 October 2016I replaced my swag of 21 years wil the same great quality. The Darche swag is a well made product with awesome festures and delivered in the time frame specified
Darche Megadome King Single Dome Swag(5) By: Joe on 17 April 2016You get what you pay for in this case. The canvas is the toughest stuff I've ever seen, the floor is super heavy PVC (tautliner) and while it's not exactly light or compact, it certainly is built to take some serious outdoor life. The super comfortable 70mm self-expanding foam mattress, means you no longer need your roll-up either - and it's great to rest on. You'll be out like a light in no time flat. The screen Mesh is very fine and keeps sandflies out (bonus!) and there is more than adequate ventilation. Zippers are smooth and easy to use, no snagging or grabbing. No condensation on the underside of the roof in the morning either... Proofing requirements were minimal - There were no proofing instructions included in the box, so after consulting Darche, I followed their recommended 'light' wet down with the hose to allow the stitching and seams to swell, then leave to air dry. No need for excessive wetting down or soaking. The canvas is already proofed and water beads off it beautifully. Only one negative - the tension required on the guy ropes is what I would call very high. Sand is not going to be of any use unless you have a pair of old axles for tent pegs. find a tree base or tie down onto your 4x4 instead. Maintaining the tension is essential to prevent sagging in the centre, as there is no ridgepole or centre spar in this swag. The benefit of no centre pole or ridgepole is that you have the best and easiest access into and out of your swag and it's quicker/easier to roll up in the morning. The full length mesh screen is fantastic. I love it. There is also a smaller 'window' on the top between the spars on the head end, which is good for ventilation on colder nights as well. On those feral nights in the tropical north you'll be sleeping with the cover rolled all the way down and catching the wisps of a breeze while your friends all suffer the sweats. With the roof rolled up it's been effective and warm in near zero temperatures for me this year already, so I've been very pleased with the purchase. Knowing it's also going to last me a lifetime also makes me a very happy camper indeed. You have to try one out to see just how good these things are. It's pretty much the best swag out there. Definitely 5 stars.
