  1. Bradley O.

    Tent has a nice and slim design. Very effortless to set up and close. Build quality and materials are fantastic! I especially love how large the window openings are! The storage pouches are great and the clear one fits my iPad mini perfectly. Very glad to have this tent on my 23 Tundra!

    I’ve had this Absence roof top tent now for a couple of months and have actually gotten to use it out in the wild.
    First of all, the tent itself is only 5″ thick. It’s not like those other huge bulky ones that stop you from getting into your garage or flop around in the wind when you get on the freewav.
    It’s an aluminum hard shell tent so it’s only about 150lbs and really hasn’t effected my gas mileage much at all. It takes literal seconds to open.. it’s just 2 latches and push up to open, and that’s it. No awning poles, no extra support, nothing. It takes just about as little time to close it too.
    “But Sarah.. a roof top tent?? what about your dogs you don’t leave home without?!”.. well, I made a little cover for the ladder so the doggies can get up and down easily and the 3 of us fit perfectly together. There’s separate screens for the windows and completely blacked out zip up closures as well, I had no idea it was even morning besides the dogs excitement to get up and play.
    One of the coolest features is the 2 LED strips on the inside ceiling. Even if it’s raining, maybe everyone else went to bed, maybe we ran out of fire wood & I could crawl into my warm sleeping bag, turn on the lights, and read or edit photos without having to worry about a headlight or flashlight.
    There’s overhead storage inside so I don’t have to leave everything down in the truck or worry about finding room for it while I’m sleeping.
    Given, this is the first roof top tent l’ve had for myself, but everything about this thing is quality. The quickness and ease of it is something never thought could even exist when it comes to setting up or packing down camp, and if you know me at all, I’m ready to get out exploring as much as I can.
    Overall, if you’re looking for something to make your adventure a little easier, or you just don’t like sleeping on the ground, or your scared of bears, seriously check out this company. Not only is it a quality product, they actually care about what you need and want and will get you taken care of.
