Coleman Instant 8- Person Two Room Camping Tent Review

Tired of tents that promise a quick setup, but still have you puzzling over the shock-corded poles 10 minutes in? Turn to the Coleman eight-person Instant Camping Tent, which assembles and collapses in one minute or less. The secret to the tent’s seamless setup is the pole system, which comes pre-attached to the tent.

As a result, assembly couldn’t be easier: just unfold the tent, spread it out, extend the poles, click them together, and lock them into place. Before you know it, you’ll have a full two-room tent that stands 14 by 10 feet, with a center height of 6 feet 5 inches.

Despite the tent’s versatility, it’s still as strong and weatherproof as ever, with Coleman’s exclusive WeatherTec system helping protect you from inclement weather and nasty storms. WeatherTec tents are built with a coated polyester fabric combined with anti-wicking thread, webbing, and zippers, all designed to keep you dry when the rain comes down.

The tent’s welded waterproof floor and inverted floor seams, meanwhile, dramatically increase the water resistance by hiding the needle holes inside the tent and away from the elements. And campers will love the strong, wind-responsive frame, which includes redesigned poles and guy-out triangles that anchor the tents and increase performance.

In fact, Coleman is so confident in its WeatherTec system that it exposes its WeatherTec tents to a rain room that simulates nasty downpours, and to a wind machine capable of blowing hurricane force gusts. The results? Even after the tests, Coleman guarantees its WeatherTec tents will keep you dry.

The tent’s exterior is tough and long-lasting, with heavy-duty 150D construction that’s twice as thick as Coleman’s standard tent fabric. When combined with the fully taped rain fly seams, the tent can even keep you dry without requiring a separate rain fly. The tent also offers ample room for sleeping or hanging out. Campers have their choice of sleeping in one large room with enough space for eight people, or dropping down the divider and turning the tent into a two-room palace.

And hot nights will seem far more refreshing thanks to the two doors and seven windows, which provide terrific ventilation and 360-degree views. Other features include vertical walls that make it easy to stand and move about the tent, an interior gear pocket, reverse angle windows, and easy-to-follow instructions sewn into the durable carrying bag. The tent carries a limited one-year warranty.

Post Reviews

The Coleman Instant 14- by 10- Foot 8- Person Two Room Best Camping Tent received excellent reviews by all with only a few flaws. One reviewer was very excited how fast it took him to set it up, that there were no poles to put together, they were already attached to the camping tent.

Another reviewer stated, “this tent is EASY to set up. The external frame and tent never come apart, so you don’t have a chance to lose anything. I have set the tent up on my own, but, frankly, it’s easier to set up when you have the help of one other person.” Another commented on the space of the camping tent that it fit his family of five, all the gear, with room left over, with the center pole at 6′ 5&Prime, plenty of room to stand up in.

Another commented on how the tent was divided giving privacy to the children and the adults. It has plenty of ventilation with all the screen windows.

Some of the negative comments were the windows had no ties to roll them up, and heavier tent stakes are needed to tie down the camping tent. This is one of the best camping tent reviews for Amazon. It is highly recommended for purchase.
