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 Traditional Single Swag is covered by the Darche Lifetime Warranty (exclusions apply).
Reviews of Darche Traditional Swag - Single
Darche Traditional Swag - Single(2) By: Luke on 27 November 2018There was an email that I sent to the staff at tentworld.com.au. Thanks for the reply back, though. 5/5 for response time. 2/5 for factual information. QUOTE:"The head-end of this swag is manufactured with a mesh window, allowing for airflow to occur throughout the night. With that in mind, sometimes that mesh window does not provide enough airflow to reduce condensation on cold nights. In these circumstances, we do recommend slightly opening that window (with a zip) to increase its airflow and condensation reduction. [PERSONAL NOTE from reviewer: THERE IS NO MESH WINDOW!] Thanks, (team member name removed), for I don't know... Probably not getting your information correct. You could've opened a box and unrolled the swag itself, just to double check, right? The box had the swag, itself, separate from the vacuum sealed mattress. Who told you that there was a mesh window? I'm sorry, but FACTS need to OUTWEIGH what certain people FEEL as needed to be sold. More recommended for actual children compared to adults. Not recommended for winter, unless you have a very good sleeping bag / lining to use in the swag. As for summer, during the night, I can't tell. May need to be seasoned properly (ie: doused with water and dried 3-5 times).
Tentworld ResponseHi Luke, thanks for your review. Sorry to hear you're not too happy. I've been able to find your email thread with our team member where he did incorrectly advise you there was a mesh window in this swag. Unfortunately, as you've stated - this is not correct. We are very sorry about this, we sell many other swags that do have windows and this was a genuine mistake. If Jarrod thought this was a requirement for you, he could have easily suggested another to you. He did not intentionally mislead you, as we all know - this is the outcome - bad experiences for our customers, and reduced likelihood of you returning. I havent been able to find any communications with you, aside from this review, where you're advising us you're unhappy with your purchase. If you would like to get a refund or exchange to a more suitable model swag we're happy to facilitiate this as this is our mistake, we incorrectly advised you of features that do not exist in this swag. If you can please email in reply to your purchase invoice we'll get this going for you. In regards to your comments around it being small, it is smaller being a traditional single, but should still be suitable for most adults. If you're looking for roomy feel, you should consider going for a dome swag and king single or double size. In regards to your statement around seasoning your swag to be weatherproof, definitely, we recommend you soak & dry your swag a minimum of 3x (or until it stops leaking) to ensure it's fully treated. I hope all this helps. Kind Regards, Tentworld team.
