for Land Rover Defender 110 & 90

We proudly present the official do-it-yourself poptop kit for your Defender!

Using world renowned German craftsmanship, The Overlandies Poptop is designed and hand welded in Germany from 3 mm thick high quality aluminium. It converts your Defender into an expedition vehicle with enough space to enjoy your adventures! The construction consists of 2 frames, one upper and one lower frame, connected with a highly durable aluminium hinge! Installing the poptop is very simple! The lower frame gets screwed onto the body of your Defender, while the original roof-shell gets bolted onto the upper frame! 

With our poptop, there is no more need to shorten the original roof-shell while still having an angled front aligned with the windscreen! The best part is, the whole installation is completely reversible and your car can be converted into its original condition at any time! 

The waterproofbreathable and highly durable tent comes with 3 spacious openings with mosquito nets  to give you the best view when you are sleeping under the stars! The side windows open downward, so you can also open them slightly during rain to get enough ventilation! Unlike with rooftents, our tent does not flutter in the wind. It is handcrafted by our tailor in northern Germany. The material comes from the yacht sector and is sewn with hightech yarn on modern machines to guarantee a high quality. The color of the tent and yarn can be chosen individually for your Defender!   

Thanks to two gas struts, our poptop can be opened within a few seconds! The strength of the gas-struts is calculated and chosen depending on your personal roofweight! It is necessary to use correctly calculated struts to aid in longevity, ensure easy opening and a comfortable closing of your The Overlandies poptop

The inner width for the lying surface measures 133 cm. The possible bedlength is 220 cm.

Equipped with L-shaped aluminium profiles along the inside of the bottom frame, a convenient support surface for the bed construction is provided. As there are many different preferences on bed constructions we do not supply a bed frame. We can provide details and solutions on how other customers have created theirs. 

The Overlandies poptop adds up to 14 cm to the height of your vehicle and weights 45 kg.
