Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
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 didn’t want to try our luck in the desert again with the same kind of tent. Even though it wasn’t 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 can’t bring myself to recommend this tent.
Did the product fit true to size? Yes

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.

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

I was able to put this tent up by myself in under 5 minutes the first time. I'm sure it will go even more quickly the next time! It's a good size tent for families. Very good product and it will save many camping couples the fight of their lives trying to put up a difficult tent.
How accurate was the sizing? great
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems to be put together very well.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? From what I've seen so far.
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!
I purchased this tent after our old tent broke down and I just love it. With two people it take no time at all to set up. We fit out double queen size air mattress in the back portion and still have the front half of the tent for our clothing and other supplies with plenty of room.

Just used my new tent for 5 days at Donington Download Festival 2013, in the UK, with the rain fly. Only 2 of us but it was perfectly sized for a 3 foot mud zone inside the door and a dry zone for rucksacks, before the sleeping area. Due to bad weather, the ground turned into a mud river and the tent was on water the entire time, but only a couple of small damp patches seeped through by day 5. No bugs and no condensation at all due to excellent 360 degrees meshed ventilation via windows on all 4 sides plus the centre roof vents. The ventilation kept the tent cool in the sun as it caught the wind from any direction. I think the rain-fly deflected some of the heat too. Love the adjustable windows that allow you to choose privacy levels on all 4 sides. I used the windows to dry off damp clothing as the mesh prevents anything from falling onto the ground, Negative comments: the back wall flaps loudly in strong winds so will think of a way to attach a guy line there; only 2 small pockets inside but used the window fasteners to hang portable pockets; the tent is very heavy and needs a trolley if you have to walk some way with it. The tent was easy to set up and to pack away. I bought a couple of long straps which helped gather the tent fabric into a tight bundle for refitting into the bag. As I only have a tiny back yard, I unclipped the tent from the frame to give it a thorough hose-down and dry off over the washing line, before reattaching it. I am very pleased with the tent and should get years of use out of it. Compared to the price on amazon (over £800 at this time June 2013) I paid under *** for my Coleman instant 8 via Overstock and I would say it is worth every penny.
