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 it’s 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 (Sparrow, Sandpiper, and Eagle), 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 collapsible 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.

Leave a Review
Just finished installing my new Falcon on a Subaru Outback, and offer here a couple installation suggestions. 1) It is easier to lift and position the tent with 3 or even 4 people, rather than two. 2) Take the advice offered by Roofnest and install the rubber layer on top of your rack crossbars. You need the clearance to get to the mounting bolts. Order the rubber bands well in advance as it may take a while to get them delivered. 3) Getting the mounting bolts cinched down adequately takes time. If you have a sunroof, the two closest to the front of the vehicle can be accessed more easily by opening the sunroof all three way and kneeling in the front seats. 4) Slide the ladder hooks into the groove BEFORE adding the latch assemblies. You can tighten them later but get them slid in first or you will have to remove part of the latch assembly later. 5) The latches are a very snug fit. You can make closing them easier by making sure that the cylinder cross piece on the smaller part of the assembly is pushed as close to the pivoting assembly as possible before tightening the allen bolts. There is only a little play but it is enough to make a difference. That’s it. Enjoy your tent
Wind and rain proof
I have been using our Falcon XL for about 2 months and love it. I recommended Roofnest to our son and they bought a Sparrow XL but this last weekend proved to be the best test. We had HEAVY rain and wind for 2 days near Easton washington, and we were dry, no leaks and held up perfectly in the wind.
We drove from Las Vegas to Iowa and had a blast. We took the non-traditional route and visited all the national parks possible. Little wind noise on the highway on a Jeep JKU and it was a very comfortable at night. Recommended this to everyone who asked what was on my car lol
Awesome product, company and customer service.
I didn’t want to send a review until I tested the tent a lot. The tent is amazing. High quality and very comfortable. I’m
6’2” and have plenty of space to move around, change etc. It does get a little tight with foot room. My 5 star review is not only for the product but for the outstanding customer service. These guys care about their customers. Answer any and all questions with fast response and have gone above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of. I’m a roofnest fan for life!! 2020 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited. Fits great on top of the Pioneer Platform from Rhino Rack.
Love the sleek design
i fell in love with how low profile it was. Thats exactly what i want in a roof top tent
Falcons in the Wild
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?
