The Sparrow XL 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 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 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 quieter during a wind storm due to its weight.
Doors and Windows
The Sparrow and Sparrow XL have 3 doors: one on either side of the tent, and one on the rear. The Sparrow and Sparrow XL have a window on the front of the tent. Every door and window have both 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 access. 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 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.
