The Discovery is the entry level of the James Baroud hard shell tents range, ideal for a lower budget and is the easiest tent to open and close because only one side conveniently opens. This tent is also completely waterproof and wind tested to the same high standards of the other hard shell tents in the James Baroud range. Compared to other rooftop tents, the compact size of the Discovery Evolution reduces the height profle of your vehicle, allowing to travel deeper into those special, hidden 4WD locations.
