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.

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.


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.

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!!!
