The first tent we bought was visibly free of any defects, it was easy to set-up and very roomy inside. Well designed. However, we got caught in unexpected 50mph gusts and when one of the nylon straps ripped off the bottom corner of our tent, the stability was compromised and the tent started crumpling under the assault of the winds. We attributed the disastrous experience to the severe winds and possibly a faulty nylon tether, because the tent was holding its own until that strap became separated from the pole.
The second tent we bought appeared to have a few holes in the bottom corner, but nothing serious or worth causing some concern. We went camping in the forest of Idyllwild because we didnít want to try our luck in the desert again with the same kind of tent. Even though it wasnít meant to rain until the next evening the temperatures dropped to 32 degrees and it began raining very lightly at midnight. By 5:30am we were soaking wet and freezing cold.
We love how easy it is to set-up this tent and we love how roomy it is, but I canít bring myself to recommend this tent.
Did the product fit true to size? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Ok

I bought one of these tents a year ago....set up very easy! BUT here is the bad the nylon is very thin..does not keep out water...BUT here is the really BAD news coleman DOES NOT make replacement parts...we broke one of the plactic knukles so the tent is non repairable. For the cost of this tent I can't believe Coleman is not making replacement parts. SOOOOOO almost XXX.00 down the tube!! And believe me you will break a knunkle at some point...we take very good care of our stuff and it just happened.
How accurate was the sizing? right on
Please tell us about the quality of the product. good

The tent is very easy and quick to set up. Directions and pictures are helpful, but don't get in a hurry and "snap" a pole. It would be a good tent for the family of 4 which is who I purchased it for.(my son is 6'4 and he's ok in it.) If you have ANY gear at all there is no way 8 people sleep in it. It looks like you would be lined up like sardines if you tried to do that. All-in-all its a good tent for occasional use, but probably not for serious campers.
How accurate was the sizing? correct
Please tell us about the quality of the product. on one window zipper, it appears the "teeth" are coming loose from the fabric
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? one problem with one zipper
I camp every summer for a month, plus all major summer holidays! I used this tent all summer long. It is the easiest tent I have ever put up. We got caught in an unexpected rain storm. It poured for over 6 hours and the tent was completely dry inside. I was a bit concerned without a rainfly, but there is absolutely no need. The tent itself is made extremely well made. It has plenty of room inside with great windows and ventilation. I can't wait to use it again next summer!
How accurate was the sizing? very

Tent technology has entered a new era! Camping for over 50 yrs., I couldn't believe it when Coleman claimed this tent would set up in less than a minute, well it does. Right out of the tent bag, I set it up by myself in less than two minutes. Phenominal! Equally impressive was the delivery time. UPS said expect in 7 days, I got it in 4! My best shopping experience yet with Overstock.com. Thanks!
I've set it up once and took down. The process was easy as long as you figure out which way is up the first time. Once everything was up I was impressed by the feel of the material compared to a cheap "9-person" tent I saw at a store. I think this brand does a good job to make it fairly durable.
It was also simple to put away in the carry bag.
This tent is great. My husband set it up with the help of a friend that had already set one up. We bought a couple of packs of the Coleman 10in. Spikes because the tent comes with the small stakes and we were camping in an open area without much cover and we were concerned about the wind. The tent was roomy. We had a queen size mattress and a bedroll, all of our bags and plenty of room for another mattress. It only rained a little this trip and the tent stayed dry. We also purchased the rainfly to go with the tent. The zipper is easy to use. My husband needed a little help taking down the tent by a friend who had taken the tent down before. It seemed to be a two person job to get it back into the bag. The tent is a little heavy so it is not a back packing tent. Overall this is a great tent!
this tent is nice. the first tent i received had manufacterer defects, overstock was brilliant in getting a replacement to me before our camping trip that friday. tent is very easy to setup, would be difficult to setup if shorter than 70 inches because of reach. just as easy to take down. great purchase and excellent customer service!
I purchased this tent for my son-in-law for his Birthday! He loves the tent and said that he can stand up comfortably in the tent. He cannot wait to take his entire family camping. He said that it is extremely easy to put-up and they even set it up in their living room to try it out!
