All our tents feature an ABS outer shell reinforced with fiberglass and molded into an aerodynamic design that decreases road noise and improves gas mileage. The inside of the shell is coated with an insulation layer and attractive quilted fabric to insulate, reduce noise, and give the inside a soft feel. The lower shell is composed of the same materials with a special shape to increase rigidity and stability. Each Roofnest is rated to support up to 650 lbs.
The wall material is a 280gram polyurethane-coated polyester and cotton blend with a waterproof rating of 3000mm (for comparison a typical waterproof rating on a backpacking tent is 1000mm). The fabric is much thicker and tougher than a typical backpacking tent – more like a heavy-duty wall tent. The material provides additional warmth and is quiet during heavy winds due to its weight.
Doors and Windows
The Sparrow has a doorway with both mesh and canvas on both sides and on the rear of the tent. Each doorway can be turned into a shade awning with the included awning poles. The front side of the tent hosts a window with both mesh and canvas layers. The tent can be entered from all 4 sides. The 3 doorways have ladder brackets under them to keep the included ladder stable.
All Roofnests are shipped with a sturdy and lightweight 8.5′ telescoping ladder that can be secured to the ladder brackets under all 3 doorways (sides and rear). The ladder collapses and comes with its own storage bag.
Every Roofnest comes with a built-in, custom-shaped 7cm foam mattress. This isn’t your typical camping mattress. It’s so comfortable, it feels like a real bed. Say goodbye to a poor night’s sleep while camping, and say hello to getting in a good snooze with a Roofnest.
