Tent Fabric

We guarantee you won't find a higher-quality, better-performing fabric on any rooftop tent. All of our tents utilize a proprietary aluminized polyester with acrylic coating that is 100% waterproof, breathable, UV-resistant, no-perishable, and solar-reflective. All windows are covered with quality insect-proof netting.


One of the most important features of a rooftop tent is the part you sleep on: the mattress. All James Baroud rooftop tents feature a thick, moisture-resistant 3" high-density foam mattress. Mattresses have a heavy duty zippered cover for easy removal and cleaning. 

Interior Storage

All tents include a removable storage pocket for stowing keys, wallets, headlamps, clothing or anything else you need to quickly stash inside the tent. Hardshell tents include an additional large ceiling storage net. 

Assisted Opening

All James Baroud tents (except the Nomad 160) feature a patented gas strut-assisted opening mechanism, making set up incredibly fast and easy - less than 30 seconds, and nearly as quick to collapse back down. 

Simple Mounting

Hardshell and folding tents are simple to install. Tents feature reinforced mounting rails integrated into the lower shell/platform of the tent, and include installation brackets allowing easy direct mount to most aftermarket roof rack systems.


Access to the tent is easily gained by using the specially-designed telescoping aluminum ladder. Our unique design automatically adjusts to the height of your vehicle and prevents bending while you're in the tent.

Durability & Extreme Weather Performance

James Baroud employs a former Dakkar Rally driver to conduct testing on each tent. All of our tents have passed a grueling durability test, and you can sleep in confidence know that James Baroud tents are waterproof and tested in winds up to 60mph. For added comfort in extreme temperatures, add an Isothermic insulation Kit to the interior of your tent (see accessories)

Industy Leading Warranty

Our rooftop tents come with the most inclusive warranty in the market: 5 years for hardshell tents and 3 years for folding tents. Warranty covers manufacturers defects and failure of the tent fabric, shell, and strut mechanism. 

James Baroud tents are designed to allow replacement of any part of the tent by your local authorized dealer.

Outer Shell

The outer shell of all James Baroud hardshell tents utilize fiberglass-fortified polyester. Aerodynamic ribs on the upper shell help improve wind noise and fuel economy as well as provide additional structural strength and rigidity. 

Extreme models include an integrated storage tray in the back with tie-down points for securing up to 65lbs of additional cargo. Hardshell tents are available in three colors: white, gray, and black.

LED Lighting

All hardshell 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 charge indicator LED as well as a USB charging cord. 


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.
