WELCOME TO ROOFNEST CANADA
We designed the Sparrow Eye to be our most accessible hard-shell tent. Because of the clamshell design, the Eye is our easiest tent to open and close so you can get in and out of camp quicker than ever. Its compact size makes it a great fit on all vehicles. If you’re looking for simple, quick, and easy you found it. But don’t miss the Sparrow Eye’s real claim to fame. The oversized window and angled shell means when you lay down to sleep, you’ll enjoy sweeping and unobstructed views of the stars.
The EYE is the best tent for anyone who wants our simplest camping solution. Now featuring integrated LED lighting.

The Sparrow EYE features an ASA/ABS outer shell reinforced with fiberglass 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 softer feel. The lower shell is made with 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 280GSM Polycotton 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 — it’s more like a heavy-duty wall tent. The material provides additional warmth, and is much quieter during a wind storm due to its weight.
Doors and Windows
Every door and window has a bug mesh and canvas cover, and you can unzip both for entry or exit from any side of the tent.
All Roofnests are shipped with a sturdy and lightweight 8.5′ telescoping ladder for easy access in and out of your tent. The ladder collapses and comes with its own heavy-duty storage bag. The ladder can be attached to the edge of the Roofnest for additional safety if desired.
Every Roofnest comes with a built-in, custom-shaped 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 RTT. The Sparrow EYE features a 2.8" foam mattress with cover.
The Sparrow EYE comes equipped with a built in LED USB-powered light strip to help you find your way in the darkest of nights!
