How frisky.

Anything that keeps me from wrestling with poles and hunting for inevitably lost stakes only to end up jerry-rigging everything to a tree, I’m sold.

In other words: big fan of rooftop tents right here.

And this happens to be a particularly fine rooftop expedition shelter. The Evasion hard shell roof top tent is the newest pop-up solution from the outdoor innovators at James Baroud.

The tent quickly blossoms with just the simple release of a latch. And thanks to the accordion-like design, it’s just as easy to smoosh back into its box.

The structure offers 360-degree views, fits most vehicle’s roof bars and rides silent even at top speeds. Included with the Evasion are two removable storage pockets, a ceiling storage net, a rechargeable LED torch, an extendable ladder for entry and a clever, built-in solar-powered vent for extra ventilation.

The home-on-the-go will run you $2,600 - $4,400 depending in the options. But that coin will also safeguard the fabric, hull and mechanism for up to five years of rough-and-tumble fun.
