We guarantee you won't find a higher-quality, better-performing fabric on any roof top tent. All windows are covered with quality insect-proof netting.
Mattress: The part you sleep on is one of the most important features of a roof top tent: The mattress. All James Baroud roof top tents feature a moisture-resistant 3" thick high-density foam mattress. Mattresses have a zippered cover for easy removal and cleaning.
Interior Storage: All tents include a removable storage pocket for stowing wallets, keys, phones, tablets, clothing, headlamps, or anything else you need to quickly stash inside the tent. The EXPLORER 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 install. Roof top tents feature reinforced mounting rails integrated into the lower shell platform of the tent, and include installation brackets allowing easy direct mounting to most aftermarket roof rack systems.
To mount to a Slimline Roof rack you will want to add the Hard Shell Tent Mount Bracket Kit.
Ladder: Entry to the tent is easily gained by using the included, specially-designed telescoping aluminum ladder. This unique design automatically adjusts to the height of your vehicle and prevents bending while you're in the tent.
Durability and Extreme Weather Performance: All James Baroud tents have passed a grueling durability test, and you can sleep in confidence knowing that James Baroud tents are waterproof and tested in winds up to 60 mph. James Baroud employs a former Dakkar Rally driver to conduct testing on each tent. 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 countless custom colors) utilizes fiberglass fortified polyester. Aerodynamic channels on the upper shell help decrease wind noise and provide additional structural strength and rigidity while increasing fuel economy.
LED Flashlight: All hard shell tents feature 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 as well as a charge indicator LED.
Ventilation: James Baroud hardshell tents feature a unique electric ventilation fan powered by a sealed solar panel on top of the tent shell. The ventilation fan is completely waterproof and can run on 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.

Due to extremely high demand, there may be a 4 - 8 week lead time. Custom colors take longer due to the manufacturing cue after order placement. Please contact us for current product availability.
