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 8.5′ 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.

Leave a Review
Just back from my first weekend away in the falcon so time for a review.
First off, I was very impressed with the level of customer service when responding to my initial questions (I had a lot) and then throughout the buying process, keeping me up to date with when I could expect my tent to ship.
Install: great, very well packaged, shipping was fast. Install was very straightforward.
I was impressed with the quality, feels very well put together. Mattress is really comfy, I slept so well! Tent blocks out a lot of light, so even once the sun comes up it’s easy to stay sleeping.
There is very little room in the tent when closed, I’ve managed to leave a sleeping bag in it but that’s probably the limit. Definitely no room for pillows unless you use inflatable ones.
Overall, I’m really impressed with the falcon
Stop looking, this is the RTT for you!
You truly get what you pay for. The price on RTTs is hard to swallow. We shopped around and looked at cheaper tents, but kept coming back to Roofnest. They truly stand behind their product, and after owning one, we do too. We always hear other RTT owners complain about condensation issues or not staying warm. Our only complaint is we usually oversleep when camping because it’s so cozy inside.
The falcon is tops!
I just got back from my first trip with the falcon and I love it! The quality is on point for sure. I love the ease of set and breakdown. If I had to pick a down side it would be the side windows. I wish they rolled up vs down and wish they were awning for the side. Buy this tent, you’ll love it!
Amazing tents from amazing people!
I spent a very long time considering if and what roof top tent would be best for me. I found Roofnest and was first drawn in by the competitive prices then by their amazingly cool an innovative products. I ultimately pulled the trigger after asking them a 1000 questions. The roofnest team was very helpful and enthusiastic. Thier support and communication was just as awesome after the sale. Now I have a great tent but also know I have a great team standing behind it.
Excited to join the flock!!
100 % Excited for our overland tent to arrive!!! The product looks like the key to opening our door to more time together, to adventures, and to exploring!! Excited to be more connect by disconnecting from the day to day grind with a super cool place to lay my head!!
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?
