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 – the Falcon Accessory channels can hold up to 50 lbs when attached in at least two places. 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.

Super Easy Camping
I just spent 3 nights in my mew Falcon XL, and I am way more than satisfied! It is SO large inside, and it is super comfy, and the dark material keeps the morning light out so I slept until 8:30’ish; normally up at 6:30! The first and second time I closed it by myself, I was NOT quoting scripture! Just take your time and it is super easy. I love all the extras included, very nice touch! I would have been on a solo trip for a month, however my fell and broke her hip, I had to return home immediately! Here to more wonderful nights!
Rock solid in wind and superior build quality but missing one thing....
I have had many RTT, this is the best build quality I have seen of any of my tents. I had the sparrow before this which is not made to the same attention to detail and quality for the exterior. This would be a 10/10 if you could keep your sleeping bags and small pillows in the tent. I need a mix of the quality of this tent but the convenience of the sparrow. 80% of the total setup in rolling up my sleeping bag and playing Janga in my Jeep to organize in store it before we get to the next spot. The tents only keep getting better but will be upgrading if one comes out with the metal quality and can store bedding.
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.
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.
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?
