Aluminum Honeycomb Shell
The Falcon is made from aluminum honeycomb sheets (bottom sheet is reinforced with aluminum crossbars) and aluminum channels on all four sides. The accessory channels allow easy mounting of a variety of accessories. 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
All Roofnests have two mesh windows at the front and back with both canvas and mesh zip closures. On our rectangular tents, there is a doorway with a mesh screen and zip closure on either side. The Sparrow EYE and Falcon have 3 doors. The canvas doorway(s) can be turned into a small shade awning with the included poles. All tents can be fully unzipped at each opening to allow entry from any side.
All Roofnests are shipped with a sturdy and lightweight 7.5′ telescoping ladder for access. The ladder is collapsable and can be attached to the edge of the Roofnest for additional safety if desired.
Every Roofnest comes with a built-in, custom-shaped 7 cm foam mattress. What a dream to sleep on! This is not your typical camping mattress, it feels like a real bed. If you’ve had difficulty sleeping while camping those problems are going to be a distant memory after a few nights in a Roofnest.

Held up in HEAVY winds
I used my Falcon for the first time in the Nevada desert. We camped in a secluded valley that developed high 30-40 mph winds that came through all night. I woke up a few times. But the tent held up. My buddies smittybuilt took a beating and he had to sleep in his truck.
Loving the low profile design. It really blends seamlessly with my 2007 Dodge Ram. I did not even drop any highway MPG with my Leitner/roofnest setup.
I am so glad I paid the premium and went with a quality tent vs the other guys.
Best roof top
Falcon XL is a fantastic roof tent, well-built and super comfy mattress (better than my bed). I’m very happy with this purchase and the convenient of just park my jeep in any nice spot and open and close it in a minute. My small dog loves this tent.
There are primarily two reasons why I went with a Falcon over my initial inclination to go with a Sparrow. One is the extreme rugged durability with a solid metal case. The other is that it’s very tall at its peak so if you want to sit up or get dressed there’s a lot of height in that one area. It’s roomy in some ways but it’s also tight at the front point where it’s narrowest. The other advantage that I’ve discovered as a pleasant surprise is that it’s very solid in bad weather, especially when you point it into the wind. winds up to 20 mph are not even noticed when you’re inside and it still holds up very well to wind speeds much higher than that. last of all, it’s easy for me to close by myself since I’ve only gone solo camping with it.
Exactly what I wanted
I recerched a lot of roof top tents for four months and picked the Falcon XL. My wife and I talked about getting a camper but I didn’t want to be tied down with a hauling a trailer, so I started looking into roof top tents. I was out west once before and saw them around which is where I got the idea. I don’t think us east coasters have grasp this great camping alternative yet, you don’t see them around here much. I recently retired and took a 32 day road trip around the country and traveled 10,000 miles. I went hiking, biking and visited a dozen of our national parks. I was selling on the roofnest, everywhere I went people were asking me about it and taking pictures of it. I loved my Roofnest. I’m planning another trip this summer. The only complaint I would have is the latches. They are impossible to open and close. I solved that problem with a quickgrip and release clamp. I was also a little worried about thunder storms. The tent looks great on my gray f-150 after I found a compatible rack and tonneau cover. Once I get my friends to help me put it on the truck this spring that is where it is going to stay until winter. It only rained two times while on my trip, but seemed to be nice and dry inside. If I leave early in the morning to go somewhere after a rainy night I just stop somewhere and its easy enough to just pop it up and down to let it dry. Great tent Roofnest, I’ll keep selling on it
Just wish I could find a way to send you a couple pictures because i’m not on face book.
Love this tent
I mounted the Falcon XL on a Gobi Stealth rack on a ’21 Rubi JLU and it is the the rig of my dreams. The instructions were so so and it took four of us to get the tent on top of such a tall rig but I have no more road noise than I did without the tent, and that’s with the bars and a yakima ski rack with four pairs of skis on top. In the cold (like 10 degrees F), the gas-powered shocks are a little less help than when they are warm so I have to really push the thing up with all those skis on ii, but no big deal. I feel like these temps are testing it. Even with venting the doors a little, anything below 15 degrees and the tent fills with ice but I guess that’s to be expected. If it ends up being a sunny day, I leave the tent open in the parking lot of whatever mountain I’m at and when I come back, it’s dry as a bone. This set up has allowed me and my son to chase powder all month and it’s truly been the best.
The focus of the Falcon design is rugged durability and a sleek, aerodynamic design (hence the name). If you plan on off-roading through the deserts of Moab or blazing over bumpy mountain trails here in Colorado, you can rest assured this roof top tent can handle the ride.
Or if you’re more of a laid-back, tie-up-a-hammock-and-crack-open-a-cold-one kinda camper, the Falcon’s ready-to-tumble design means you can rely on it for endless weekend getaways.
The Falcon and Falcon XL keep the same low profile when closed, making them a great choice for efficient gas performance. Every penny you save on fuel is another you can spend on beers for the campsite, right?
