Roofnest’s Falcon 2 – Thinner, sturdier, and more comfortable than its predecessor.
The Falcon 2 takes all the elements that made the Falcon our bestselling tent, and upgrades them to even loftier standards. Astonishingly thin at just 6.5” closed, the sleek aerodynamics of the Falcon 2 offer even more energy efficiency. A newly designed top shell reduces condensation by sandwiching two sheets of aluminum around an insulating foam layer, and a familiar honeycomb aluminum-constructed bottom shell is now equipped with a pair of accessory channels that can withstand up to 75 pounds of gear.
The tent material is an upgraded 320g poly-cotton canvas with a blackout coating on the inside that makes for the perfect sleeping cave, while a removable awning provides weather protection at all three entrances. Comfort is not sacrificed with an improved mattress that provides 2.5” of true memory foam. Using the optional crossbars allows for even more gear and toy carrying capacity.

The Sword is designed specifically with small families in mind as this larger footprint will accommodate two adults and two children with more ease than the clamshell or pop up design. To make this happen, the Sword is assembled with a one-piece hinge mechanism on the side with gas struts to help set up the tent in seconds. From there, a hidden platform unfolds to provide additional room in the tent footprint that securely hangs off the side of the vehicle. Upon opening, the walls of the tent are built from durable, rip-stop canvas with double entry privacy mesh panels, and both the roof and floor are insulated to keep you comfortable throughout the night. Much of the appeal that comes from a hardshell roof top tent is the quick setup and takedown, and the Sword is no exception. A single person can quickly unclip only two latches and easily lift to open, then push down gently to close and lock. The full process takes only seconds to complete.
These tents are assembled with a one-piece hinge mechanism on the side. Gas struts set up the tent in seconds. The included ladder stores under the tent for easy access. It also comes equipped with internal LED Light, two storage pockets, a USB Port and a 70mm high-density laminated mattress. The Eezi-Awn K9 track system is attached to the top of the tent for compatibility with mounting additional K9 accessories, load bars, and/or a solar panel bracket.
