Spacious and Roomy
The Coleman 6-Person Instant Tent can sleep up to six people making it an ideal family tent. The generous footprint of 10×9 foot gives you ample floor space to sleep.
A great feature of this tent is the ability to set it up in less than one minute. This is ideal when you're out in bad weather and want to set up camp quickly. Setting up the tent is very simple. You just need to unfold it, and then extend the legs then it's ready for use.
As you'd expect from a Coleman tent the build quality is impressive. The materials are made of heavy-duty fabric and the poles which construct the frame are made of steel. The height of the tent is 6 feet giving you plenty of headroom inside even if you're tall.
Exclusively from Coleman is their WeatherTec system consisting of a range of interworking features which keep the inside of the tent dry at all times. Leak-free seams cover the doors and windows thereby preventing water leaking in. The coated polyester fabric provide adequate protection in the even in extreme weather.
The tent holds up well in wet weather and does not leak, but it does sometimes produce condensation on the inside. This does not produce much water though, so using a towel should be enough to soak up the droplets.
There is plenty of ventilation so it feels airy and comfortable inside the tent during hot summers. Both sides of the tent have a large sized window and there is also a big window at the back. There are also two roof vents to provide even further ventilation.
I would like to have seen a rain fly included as the water is not stopped from getting inside the tent if you open the windows after it has been raining. The tent interior is spacious and comfortable for 3-4 people, but if you have 6 people you will not be able to fit your camping gear inside too, so I would recommend an 8-person tent in these circumstances.
Overall, the Coleman 6-Person Instant Tent is smartly designed tent which has excellent quality materials that are well stitched. The instant set up allowing you to setup the tent within one minute is very appealing for those who want a high-level of convenience.
