Well Done Darche
I've had this swag for almost a year now and used it for 10 trips. I have waited for a true rainstorm to review...
Pros: excellent ventilation options for all conditions. Waterproof even in heavy constant rain. Good overhead room for changing relatively easily (for a swag - I am 6foot). Mesh and zips are of high quality and keep bugs out. PVC floor is strong as is the stitching in the corners where the rings connect to the frame. No leaks. For very warm weather recommend a stretcher for better airflow (true of all swags). Swag bag is excellent...and stood up to abuse so far. Cons: price (you pay for that quality but some of the price is branding - I have seen other swags of similar design and quality for 100 or so less RRP). Overall very happy with the purchase, I have every reason to believe that it will last a long time.

Absolutely Im loving it!!
Brought this product purely for the head room, it doesnt disappoint! Great air flow with windows all round, comfy mattress but I do use another on top of original, but the original alone is sufficient! So far no complaints. It is however a heavy swagy tent but it is made with good ripstop canvas. I can sit up comfortably to change clothes and it’s roomy for me, I have the 900 and I’m 5”2 and 69k. I’ve been on three trips with no problems and I have a few trips coming up over the year ahead so will give a review on its endurance then.

Darche Dirty Dee 1400 (the big one).
Great swag but heavy and long. Actually more of a small tent made of heavy and good quality 'rip stop' canvas, of which I am a fan.
Its comfortable with plenty of room for one reasonable sized person (I'm 5'11 x 100kg), a 10cm thick foam mattress + additional self inflating mattress, big sleeping bag, full sized pillow + gear bag, heavy jacket, boots (and a rifle or two if one is so inclined). Great for cold weather camping as it traps some body heat when you first get up and out of your bag, with enough room to pull on your warm ou...

Great design, quality workmanship
Excellent design, ventilation for warmer months and very well stitched and sealed for when its colder and raining. The foam mattress does its job but I would recommend an upgrade to a self-inflating to go on top of it (the canvas bag that comes with it is big enough to accommodate the two). Its missing a few features of other similar swags (boot bag for example). There is room for two smaller adults to squeeze in together so its pretty spacious.
