Camp more sustainably with James Baroud

We love camping, we love adventure, and we love the outdoors, which makes it in our best interest to look after and preserve the wild places we play.

One of the best and most efficient ways to do this is to purchase the best and highest quality products you can afford. These products, rooftop tents in our world, on the whole, will not only last for longer, therefore reducing your need to purchase the same product again, but it also helps your hip pocket in the long run as well.

If you own a product for many years, such as a premium quality roof top tent, you reduce the need to purchase another one, creating much higher value for money, with less cheap canvas ending up in land fill. If you sleep in a cheap rooftop tent for 20 nights and it starts falling apart, that becomes a more expensive tent. A premium product, on a cost per night basis, actually becomes the far cheaper option, saving both you and the planet in the long run.

Investing in better quality products offers several advantages:

  • Durability: High-quality products, like our Odyssey model are designed and manufactured to last longer. They are built with superior materials and craftsmanship, which means they can withstand more wear and tear. This extends their lifespan, reducing the need for frequent replacements and ultimately reducing waste. Our tents are known for their high-quality construction and durable materials. They are built to withstand harsh weather conditions, frequent use, and long-term exposure to the elements. Their longevity reduces the need for frequent replacements, which minimizes waste. We back our tents with a 5-year warranty.


  • Resource Conservation: Better quality products are typically made with more efficient use of resources. They may use sustainable materials, incorporate recycled content, or be produced using environmentally friendly processes. At James Baroud we invest in the highest quality raw materials and our tents are known for their high-quality construction. We design and manufacture our products in the James Baroud family factory in Portugal. Not in a cheap factory, poorly paying workers, using cheap materials, producing the same competitor tents at scale, with different logos and a clever brand story.


  • Cost-effectiveness: While high-quality products may have a higher upfront cost, they provide better value in the long run. They require fewer repairs or replacements, resulting in cost savings over time. By investing in durable and reliable products, you can avoid the expense and environmental impact of constantly buying and discarding low-quality items. Our products provide you much lower cost per use.


  • Reduced Waste: By investing in better quality products, you are investing in a healthier planet. Disposable products tend to contribute significantly to waste generation. Opting for durable, long-lasting items, such as a James Baroud roof top tent, reduces waste and lessens the burden on landfills. Product maintenance, as is the case with any product whatsoever, will prolong the life of the product and therefore reduce waste.


  • Environmental Impact: Sustainable, high-quality products have a lower environmental impact throughout their lifecycle. This includes reduced energy consumption during manufacturing, lower emissions, and less waste generation. We place a strong emphasis on eco-friendly manufacturing processes and materials. We prioritize sustainable practices, such as using the highest quality European and low-impact materials wherever possible. This includes utilizing eco-friendly fabrics, reducing chemical treatments, and ensuring responsible waste management during production. All materials are sourced in the European region, providing the highest quality and lowest environmental impact products available.

Ultimately, investing in better quality products for sustainability aligns with our principles of responsible consumption and production, supporting the well-being of the environment and the places we play, and the planet as a whole. We rely on healthy and thriving wild places to inspire our customers to get outside, explore and enjoy more adventures, so you can be sure that when you buy a James Baroud roof top tent, you invest in these sustainability values too.
