We enjoyed this tent often camping, with our grandchildren (2) and a dog. We all had plenty of room for 4- 6 might be too tight for us. We love the tent though, it really is a 2 minute put up. I could do it by myself! Would buy it again! Thanks Overstock

I have only set the tent up one time just to see if all the parts were in the box. It was not left up for a long period of time or under any stress such as wind. The tent appears to be of higher quality than the pop up tents you see on the soccer fields, etc. It was however, much more difficult to set up than described and the canopy needed to warm up before it would completely stretch over the posts. It does fit neatly in the carry bag which has wheels for easy carry.

My 16 year old son loves this tent. It is light weight and airy. It's great for hiking or just sleeping in the backyard.

I got this to replace a cutesy play tent that was defective. It's ten times the tent and half the price. My nine year old helped put it up and figured it out with me. It was simple to assemble and the rain shield went on so easily she did it herself. Big windows and all screened. Large door opening for easy in and out. We set it up in our upstairs bedroom area for the winter but it will go outside in the summer. I can't predict how it will be, set up, outside but it's very big and four medium sized girls slept in it plus one 5'10" high school girl. It's a really nice tent and I would recommend it to anyone who is mechanically challenged, like me.

Very easy to set up. Even I figured it out. I could even get it back in the bag after we were done. Never did that before

I had brought a Eurka tent first. It seemed O.K. quality. A wind can up and one of the poles broke and then it perched the fly and everything came down. I had returned it and brought this tent, Alps Mountaineering Meramac 5 ZF FG. The tent went up good by one person. The poles on this tent were much heavier. I do think the other material is better. I plan to tent some by myself and this 10x10 is O.K. for one to set up. It will be easier when others are available. I have used this tent only once, but I am happy with it. The service I had received on returning the first tent was a no hassel and good experience. This is one reason I keep coming back to this site for other products.

Fits perfect on my patio- looks nice! doesnt shed the rain very well- tends to collect water at the edge of the canopy so I take the velcro loose when it looks like rain. otherwise it looks nice and is made well!

The poles tie to the inside instead of slipping through tubes on the outside. This makes it harder to put together and less stable. It also has no grommets for the foot of the poles to set in which will cause damage after a few uses.

My family & I love this tent. We're outside longer, now, than we've ever been.

Set this tent up in the yard before our trip and had no problems. The rain fly was a little weird at the rear of the tent but other than that it was fine. We got to our campsite and the tent went up without any problems. Kept the cool wind out and we stayed dry. I would recommend this tent to anyone. Throw away the instructions before you do anything with the tent.

The tent came in as ordered and quickly. I had purchased it for my son, in lieu of boy scouts' camping trip. We had two adults and 5 children fit comfortably (if sleeping in a tent can be comfortable). Fairly easy to put up, just don't know if I'll be able to fold it up neatly and put it back in the carrying bag. Happy with purchase!

Everything was as expected, this was an inexpensive tent, but came with a nice carrying bag. Overall design of the tent was good. The problem was during set-up one of the long poles broke where it was inserted in to the ferule. I was able to fish the broken piece out of the ferule and use the pole even though it was now slightly shorter. The the pole in one of the awnings broke by itself. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this tent because the poles are a flimsy fiberglass or something similar, and they split and break easily.

Other than the manufacture defect this is Great Tent, Went camping for the weekend and it rained pretty much the whole time but the inside was completely dry. Manufacture was a little hard to deal with. We called customer service the same day we recieved the tent in the mail and they wanted a picture of the missing sleeve and a invoice of when we ordered it which it fine but we are still waiting to recieve the sleeve. We ended up making a sleeve for the weekend after we recieved the tent because we ordered it for that weekend .

Love the tent. It was easy to set up and is easily stored in a compact bag. Very light weight.

I was kinda hesitant on buying this tent since other backpacking tents can be anywhere from $100-300 more than this tent. Anyways for the price I decided to give it a shot and Im very impressed! The tent uses quality lightweight aluminum poles and the tent pegs are also lightweight aluminum and very strong compared to most ive seen. The tent has plenty of ventilation mesh to reduce condensation and has four inside mesh pockets for storing items. It even comes with a hanging mesh storage in the ceiling.....most of the time you pay extra to have that! The rain fly is very durable and the tent looks great....better than I thought it was going to be (it is more of a pine/lime green with gray). There are two doors on either side each with large vestubles to store gear, packs, boots etc. The inside is very large with a high ceiling for comfort and is a true 3 person tent which I was surprised to find since most mean one less than they are for comfort. I haven't had chance to test this tent out yet in the rain, but I believe it will hold up very well....the 3 poles make this tent more durable than most for strong winds. I did seal the seams with waterproofing which I do on all tents so I'm 100% sure it will be great! The tent weighs 6.5lbs total.....that is about a 1lb more than the same tents that cost $100-300 more....I can deal with that 1lb more for the price when backpacking!!!! Plus split the weight between 3 and it weighs nothing!

This tent was easy to set up and worked well for a 3 day campout. It is not a 4 man tent unless that 4th man is really small.
Tent camping is a popular way to escape the city and enjoy the outdoors firsthand. There is something special about having only one protection between you and the elements: your Coleman tent. Here are a few ideas to make sure you and your Coleman tent get off on the right foot on your next camping trip.
Setting up a tent can seem a complex task for any first-time camper. Tents are an essential and useful piece of camping gear, for sure, but many frustrated campers have cursed their camping tent as they've tried to set it up in the dark without proper preparation. However, once you've set up a tent several times, it becomes a familiar routine that can easily be repeated even in the most difficult hiking and camping conditions, and once you've mastered setting up one kind of tent, it will then be easier to set up other kinds of tents, be they dome tents or family tents. Camping and hiking should be enjoyable, and they certainly can be if you know how to set up your camping and hiking equipment. Here are the steps that will help you set up tents for camping quickly and efficiently.
No two camping trips are the same. Luckily, Coleman makes tents for every condition and climate, so you can find a Coleman tent that suits your location. Whether you are backpacking in high altitude or setting up camp in your back yard, make sure you have the right tent for your situation. You'll never have to cram your family into a small hiking tent or lug a heavy tent on your backpacking trip when you have the best tent for your camping trip.
When you get out of the house and live under a tent, even for a night or two, you are joining a tradition as old as humanity. Nowadays, camping tents are used for recreation more than as a necessity. Still, there is a timeless appeal about camping in a tent. Modern tents come in a wide variety of sizes and styles. Knowing a few basics will help you purchase exactly the tent you need for your next expedition. We're more than happy to help you find it.
Coleman tents are a major component of a safe, comfortable and enjoyable camping experience. But even the best Coleman tents depend on proper care and cleaning to make sure they can last. There are a few things you can do to make sure your Coleman tent will last for years to come. The next time you go camping, you won't have to worry about sleeping in a grubby tent or damage caused by poor maintenance as long as you follow a few important steps.
It can be so great to be out in nature camping, roasting marshmallows and gazing up at the stars. But after a day full of the outdoors, it's time to retire to your home away from home, your tent. It won't give you all the conveniences of home, but a tent should keep you dry and protected from critters while you sleep. It should also hold most of your camping gear and give you a place to go if the weather isn't cooperating. So buy a tent hoping you will only sleep in it, but also buy a tent that will be comfortable to be awake in as well.
Choosing a sleeping bag is a highly individual process which should be based on several important factors -- including features, style, material and versatility. Before you begin shopping for a sleeping bag, know exactly what you will need it for. Will you be using it for year-round camping and hiking or only camping and outdoor activities in spring or summer? Will you be sleeping in your vehicle, in a tent or under the stars? What types of materials do you prefer? Once that you have determined the desired traits you would like in a sleeping bag, you can begin shopping in earnest. Here are the steps you'll need to take as you narrow your search.
Whether you're back-country camping or sleeping in a tent in a campground, you can stay warmer and more comfortable when you stretch out on a Self-inflating sleeping pad. Think of Self-inflating sleeping pads as miniature airbeds. They give you some insulation from the cold ground and give your body something a little softer to rest on. They're not all the same, though, so consider some key factors before you choose one.
Make sure your camping trip doesn't go down with the sun by having the right Coleman lantern. Camping is such a popular activity that camping gear is constantly striving to reach new demands. Whether you are hiking at high altitudes, building snow caves or pitching a tent in a groomed campground you are going to need a Coleman lantern. Just like camping trips come in many varieties, Coleman lanterns come in different types to meet every demand. Here are a few tips on picking the right Coleman lantern for your camping trip.
An inflatable mattress is indispensible as extra bedroom furniture when you have houseguests or as a comfortable resting place when you're enjoying the great outdoors (from the safety of a tent). To make your air bed even more appealing, make sure you treat it like a regular bed; an inflatable mattress will benefit from luxurious sheets as much as any other mattress. Choose the right sheets for your bedroom furniture and treat your guests to an inflatable mattress experience they'll never forget.
Wrap up a day of hiking, pitching tents and swimming in the lake with a delicious meal. To enjoy a home-cooked meal while roughing it, consider investing in a camp stove. Camp stoves and other camp cooking equipment are available in many different varieties to suit your camping style. When shopping for camping equipment, compare a variety of camp stoves to choose the one that will best fit into your camping gear collection. Use these tips to choose the right camping supplies for your camping adventures.
A good sleeping bag can make all the difference when you're sleeping outdoors. Sleeping bags keep you warm at night and protect you from the elements, whether you're camping with or without a tent. You'll want to treat your sleeping bag as well as it does you. Proper sleeping bag care will help your sleeping bags perform well and last longer. Here are some general care tips to prolong the life of your sleeping bags.
A good sleeping bag is the most valuable piece of camping gear you can own. Sleeping bags are designed to protect you from feeling cold, yet the purpose of a sleeping bag isn't really to warm you; it's to help maintain your inner body temperature. There are many styles and varieties of sleeping bags available for camping and hiking, making it seem daunting to find the right one. Learning how to buy a sleeping bag isn't as difficult as it can seem, however. This sleeping bag buying guide is designed to help you find the sleeping bags that will best suit your needs, whether you're taking a long backpacking trip or simply pitching a tent in the back yard.
If you dislike sleeping on the cold, hard ground, a sleeping pad underneath your sleeping bag can really save you a night of discomfort. A sleeping pad is also essential for keeping your sleeping bag protected when you're roughing it. When you're packing up your sleeping bag, tent and other camping gear, don't forget a sleeping pad to keep you comfortable in the great outdoors. There are three basic types of sleeping pads available for use with sleeping bags: air mattresses,, foam pads and self-inflating pads. The type of pad you'll need depends on what kind of camping you'll be doing and how much padding you prefer.
Every camping trip is different. Whether you are hiking, camping in the winter or bringing along your RV, there are a few considerations you should make for every camping trip. There is a piece of Coleman camping gear for every condition and climate. Check off our list for camping basics and prepare for an enjoyable Coleman camping trip.
The perfect list of what to take on a trip to the beach depends on who is coming and how long you'll be staying. For example, if you and your significant other are going to the beach alone, you will most likely bring far less than if you were bringing your entire family. Packing more things in your luggage than you think you'll need will ensure that your beach trip never has a dull moment.
Don't let a lack of sleeping space keep you from hosting house guests, and don't let fear of discomfort keep you from choosing an air mattress. Air beds have come a long way from the saggy versions pictured in movies; cots and airbeds are a great solution to the issue of uncomfortable camping and inflatable air mattresses can make a long night an adventure instead of a hardship.
You're ready to take your first overnight camping trip but have no idea where you'll sleep. Camping adventures in the great outdoors can be exciting, but without a good night's sleep, you might wish you had stayed home. Cots and airbeds both add a lot of comfort and make it much easier to get good rest when camping. Deciding whether to purchase a camping cot or air bed is often a matter of simple preference, so consider these important factors to help you make a decision.
Whenever you pack for a trip of any length, you may worry that you're going to forget something. Getting camping gear together can be more stressful than packing bags for other trips because many pieces of outdoor equipment are essential and difficult to replace. Let us help you calm those fears with our camping and outdoor checklist. Camping and exploring the outdoors are some of the best ways to spend your time. Because camping is so popular, you have many choices when shopping for outdoor camping gear. Allow us to help you sift through camping gear and choose the very best camping supplies and outdoor gear for your adventures.
You don't have to be uncomfortable to enjoy the outdoors. A lot of camping equipment is designed to be compact and light; that's perfect if you're planning on hiking in to a campsite. However, while light and compact is great when you're hiking, it's not always ideal once you set up camp. If you're planning on driving to a site and camping near your car, there's no sense in buying fast and light camping gear. The beauty of car camping is that you can bring along luxury camping equipment, items that enable you to enjoy the outdoors in comfort. Keep reading for more information on a few pieces of car camping gear that will make your next foray into the outdoors more comfortable than ever.
