I bought the darche eclipse 270 when it came out thinking that it was a great idea. Soon I found that it is a great concept but not so great (at least to my thinking of having a quick and easily one man deploy-able and pack-able 270 awing). There were some quality issues at the beginning, Darche did changed some parts under warranty. However my main grieve is that it is not so easy to pack, especially when wet and when you are under 6 feet tall. The transport bag is too tight and it requires a lot of effort (which is fine in cool 20 degrees, but is a killer when in the full summer sun of the red center, when you need it the most). So I ended up hardly using it in the desert because it was not worth the effort of packing it up, and I preferred to half crawl under the car to get some shade when having lunch. Now I have noticed that the bag is coming apart at the stitches after 1.5 year. I would have expected it to last longer, especially if you pay $1000. The new bag is close to $200! So I am looking for 270 that would do the job without killing me financial (since i already spend $1000). I would love ostrich wing, at nearly $2000, that is bit too much, the Chinese copy (30 sec awing) is half the price, but the quality apparently is not that great. So i was looking at the batwing, which is probably the cheapest one at reasonable quality, when the King came out with a copy. But I think both of these take bit more effort and time to set up and pack up when alone, as they are not free standing. I just do not know what to do, I might just try to modify the Darche bag somehow to ensure that it is easier to pack, and I broke one zipper on it already. So I need to find somebody who would change the zipper and somehow saw in a strip of similar material to make it wider. I just do not want to spend more money on this and finding out that it is all for nothing.
