Your weekend adventure in a box. Nest is a 2-person 'pop up' style hardshell roof tent that pitches in seconds and gives campervan-level sleep comfort to your car camping setup. Open up spontaneous trips with your bed for the night already set up when you arrive - ideal for late Friday evening arrivals!

Elevate your base camp with unrivalled views, simplified set up and pack up, and more space in your car for the rest of your adventure kit on longer road trips.

  • Attaches securely to a range of roof bars
  • Pitches in 1 minute
  • Space to store bedding and kit inside while driving
  • Mattress and ladder included

Built in gas struts make pitching your roof tent simple and quick. Unclip the hardshell and the roof is automatically lifted to reveal your tent. Inside you'll find a spacious 2-person sleeping area with a comfortable medium density foam mattress, overhead storage net and 360 degree views thanks to windows on all 4 sides. The hardshell design means there's even enough space to leave your bedding and kit inside when packed down -  no need to make the bed every night when you move camp. The collapsible aluminium ladder is also stowed inside for quick access to your tent when you park up.

Nest's sturdy construction is built to last, standing up to the rigours of campsite life. With an impermeable hard shell roof and base, reinforced aluminium frame and hardwearing ripstop polycotton side panels you'll sleep soundly even when the weather turns foul. And we've chosen a dark fabric to help stop you being woken too early on bright summer mornings.

Turn up. Unclip. Let the Nest do the rest. Your perfect weekend hideaway.

 

A note on compatibility:

Your car roof has a weight limit, often referred to as the dynamic roof load (limit while in motion) and the static roof load (limit when stationary, usually around 5x the dynamic roof load), which is stated in your vehicle's manual.

This dynamic roof load limit determines the maximum weight of cargo (including roof bars) that can be safely carried on your roof while driving. Before installing your roof tent please check that the combined weight of your roof tent and bars is within the stated limit of your chosen vehicle.

Sustainability and Product Care

Tent care

Dry and air out your tent thoroughly after each use as roof tents can suffer from condensation. Moist or humid air hitting cold fabric will cause condensation, the easiest way to avoid condensation is to maintain airflow. Do not pack away damp/wet. The hard shell outer can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Spot clean the fabric pod with warm water, mild (non-detergent) soap and a soft sponge. Never use bleach, fabric softeners or other household cleaning products and air dry only. Store your roof tent away from direct sunlight. 

Tent repair

To make your tent last longer, avoid prolonged UV exposure and repair damage immediately. If your tent is beyond basic repair, pop down to one of our store's Repair Stations! If you are unlucky enough to rip your tent on a trip, use duct tape or StormSure Tough Tape until you have a chance to repair it properly. For more tent repair tips read our tent care and repair blog.

Organic Cotton

The Nest's fabric pod is made with a polycotton blend containing organic cotton and polyester. Organic cotton farming produces significantly less CO₂, uses less water and eliminates the use of harmful pesticides. And it feels great to camp under!

Reducing our carbon footprint

We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.

We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
