Premium Quality King Single Swag

From the people that bought you Darche, with iconic swags such as the Dirty Dee, Dusk to Dawn and the AWOL.

Built with the same combination of design and manufacturing for our rugged Australian conditions, comes this big gem of a swag to the touring and camping world.


The ESC 1100 is a uniquely designed, robust camping rig that offers the height and stability of a free stander, but with optional top access like a traditional swag. This roomy fortress come is at length of 2150mm, 1100mm wide, is 840mm high at the head end and 500mm at the foot end.


12 Months from date of purchase - Please note, poles are NOT covered under warranty.

The Make Up

Made from 320 gsm ripstop poly cotton canvas, complete with double stitched reinforced seams, durability and toughness is at the core of this swag. A tough 600gsm pvc bucket floor gives you the ultimate protection against unwanted moisture – protecting your 50mm high density foam mattress during wet weather events.

Durable #10 nylon spiral zips court the superfine no-see-um mesh panels giving easy access to the swag while and keeping unwanted insects out.

Vents are available at both ends of the ESC 1100 with the lower foot end concealed under canopy while the head vent can be accessed via zip.  The roof of the foot end can also be unzipped and rolled back along with the two side panels at the head, given maximum ventilation during warmer nights.  Alternatively, all external vents can be closed off to protect you from the rain and keep you warm in colder climates.


The makeup of the ESC 1100 consists of 3 x Alloy-7001 T6-9.5mm swag poles (2 x 2.36m and 1 x 1.58m) and 1 Black Anodized Alloy Ridge pole complete with trigger lock. The two longer poles support the main body of the swag and are braced with the ridge pole supporting between. Accessing this area can be done easily through either of the side panels which is ideal when set up on a stretcher.  The 3rd shorter pole is secured by guy rope and peg, providing a tapered finish and optional entry access from above which is perfect when set up on the ground. Please note, poles are NOT covered under warranty.


The ESC 1100 is finished off with a custom Gun Metal Grey exterior and offset with a crisp black trim giving it a tough look to match its make-up.

Very well made swag for the price.

Review UPDATE.

By: on 23 May 2020
Tested in backyard. 10 degree night and 15 knot winds with showers. Swag held up well. No leaks after seasoning (to be expected) some slight water pooling on top with spreader bar creating a small channel in the canvas, no matter what tension. But didn’t leak through. (So long as don’t mess with the canvas from inside) Would benefit with some stitched Velcro loops on top of swag to attach canvas to spreader. Still love the swag and no regrets on purchase. Worth the buy.

Great swag , nice and big , heaps of ventilation .

Great bang for buck - super quick delivery,

Cannot wait to get this out for a test when Covid restrictions ease !! Have setup in the backyard to wet canvas....So far pretty impressed for price paid. ..................PRO's - Setup quickly, (under 5 mins) plenty of room inside, can actually sit up and doesn't feel claustrophobic. Canvas and mesh feels and looks solid. Mattress feels comfortable , good ventilation on DRY days/nights.............CONS - (although I don't think will be deal breakers) would be nice for awning at the head end for ventilation (has at foot end only) for when it rains, OR eyelets on the base of main doors to put mini poles to create an awning in the rain. Looking forward to a winter camp in this bad boy and will provide a review update !!

Service was fantastic and fast, just waiting for the restrictions to be lifted then we are of to Alice Springs via the back country, to catch up with some old mates out there, Phil at the Mungerannie hotel, Lord Mayor Trevor at Willian Creek, up the Oodnadatta track to Mt Dare, and into Alice via the old Ghan track.. that should test it out.

Quality product and great service

Th ESC swag is a high quality product from the makers of Darche, excellent canvas that will last a lifetime, clearly Darche quality components and design without Darche price tag, even comes with large strong pegs. Fast set up, plenty of room almost a double size, you can sleep with head at either end, the grey colour makes it dark enough to easily sleep in daylight. Love it. Great service from Bundy Outdoors, easy online shopping, free delivery even though im in regional Victoria, will shop here again.

Couldn't be happier

Absolutely love this swag completely exceeded my expectations for the price! Quality is mint, nice dark thick canvas, great design, sets up easy. Mattress could be a little better but that's fairly common in all swags. I was looking at a darche dirty dee and although they are great I'm glad I got this one due to the color nice and dark during the day and the quality seems to be the same.

Great swag

Arrived a day earlier than expected and already set up to “weather” the canvas. Can’t wait to try it out, looks great.

I was really suprized how fast this arrived considering the whole COVID thing at present. Swag is awesome, we set it up in the yard for Easter. Can't wait to use it when we are allowed to go camping again!

Best Swag

I own a darche swag and bought the ESC 1100 3 weeks ago for my sons 16th birthday. Honestly wish I got the ESC over the darche, quality is the same but really love the darker colour, keeps the morning sun out your face. Zippers are the same, canvas is the same, poles are the same. Extremely sturdy, used it many times already and feels bulletproof. Don’t waste your money on a darche!!!

Best 300 bucks spent on a swag. compared to other swags around, they were only 900 wide and dearer. very happy with it and I highly recommend.
