Additional Hardshell James Baroud Roof Top Tent features:

Tent Fabric: It is our guarantee that you will not find a more outperforming, top quality fabric on any other roof top tent. All James Baroud RTT's utilize a proprietary aluminized polyester with acrylic coating which is UV resistant, solar reflective, 100% waterproof and breathable. 
We guarantee you won't find a higher-quality, better-performing fabric on any roof top tent.  All doors/windows are covered with high quality insect-proof netting.

Mattress: The most important feature or your roof top tent is the part you sleep on: The mattress. All James Baroud roof top tents feature a 3" thick high-density moisture resistant foam mattress. Mattresses have a zippered cover for easy removal and cleaning. 

Interior Storage: All tents include a removable storage pocket for stowing phones, wallets, keys, tablets, headlamps, clothing or anything else you need to quickly stash inside the tent. The EVASION hard shell tents include an additional large ceiling storage net.  

Assisted Opening: Patented gas strut-assisted opening makes set up incredibly fast and easy - less than half a minute, and almost as fast to collapse back down. 

Simple Mounting: Hard shell tents are very easy to mount to your roof rack. Roof top tents feature reinforced mounting rails integrated into the lower shell of the tent, and include installation brackets, allowing easy direct mounting to most aftermarket roof rack systems.

To mount to a G-Wagen Slimline Roof rack you should get the Hard Shell Tent Mount Bracket Kit.

Ladder: Entry to the tent is easily gained by using the included, specially-designed telescoping high quality aluminum ladder. This unique design automatically adjusts to the height of your vehicle and prevents bending while you are resting in your the tent.

Durability and Extreme Weather Performance: All James Baroud tents have passed an intense durability test, and you can sleep in confidence knowing that James Baroud tents are waterproof and tested in winds up to 60 mph.  For added comfort in extreme temperatures, add a Comfort Mat under your mattress (see Accessories). 

Outer Shell: The outer shell of all James Baroud hard shell tents (available in 3 colors and literally countless custom colors) utilizes fiberglass fortified polyester. Aerodynamic channels on the upper shell provide structural rigidity and help decrease wind noise while increasing fuel economy. 

LED Flashlight: All hard shell tents are equipped with a bright 15-LED rechargeable flashlight. Made of tough polycarbonate with an integrated belt clip, the light may be removed from the tent and carried around camp to illuminate your way wherever you go. Includes a USB charging cord along with a charge indicator LED . 

Ventilation: James Baroud hardshell tents feature a unique  solar electric ventilation fan. The ventilation fan is completely waterproof and can run up to 24 hours on a single charge. Additional air vents with integrated dust filters on each side of the tent provide air circulation inside while the tent is closed.
