This tent is for car camping, it is way too heavy for backpacking. I'd rate the capacity as sleeps 2 comfortably, 4 reasonably, and 6 if-you-have-to. I bought this for the 'hinge' door and it was well worth it - I will never go back to zippered tent doors. The lighting system was a pleasant bonus. The light was surprisingly handy and the power pack had a USB charger for cell phones, ipods, etc. - a nice, functional, touch. The basics are well-done: fast simple set up, quality material, and functional design. The ceiling is high but the walls slope in quickly so there's limited standing room, a reasonable trade off for the simple set up and sturdy design. I've been backpacking & camping over 30 years and feel this tent's features (door and power) are the most valuable additions to tent design in terms of comfort & convenience in many years. The tent is a solid design and the extra features are worth the extra money.
Worked great...easy to set up
Used it for my son's first cub scout camp out. I t was 40 degrees with heavy dew through the night. Kept us well protected (dry/warm) using the rain fly. Easy to set up and tear down. I didn;t use all the features due to time constraints so can't comment on the springs for the window, lighting, etc.Not sure I would go for the lighting again. A lantern works just fine and saves about $50.Overall - good product, quick ship, usual high quality customer experience. Overall recommend.
It served its purpose with exceptions
We bought this tent to go on our "first ever" camping trip. Our neighbor who has been camping most of his life showed us how to put it together and it really wasn't that hard once we got the hang of it. The only issue that I had was the fact that it is supposed to sleep 6 and hold 2 queen mattreseses comfortably. It fit one comfortably and we had to fold the other one.
I would buy this product again and again
The tent went up with no problems, sturdy, large and comfortable. the Light system works well.
The fly went up quickly.
The hardest thing about this and any tent is getting it back into the bag in came out of. Thank god Coleman added a zipper in the bag that expands the bag another 1 1/2 inches to get everything back in.
Good idea guys, works well.
The only thing better is an RV
We used this tent for the first time recently and loved it. Easy to set up & take down. Love the hinged door. Roomy for two people sleeping on cots. Stood up well to the wind & rain we encountered. The best feature by far was the lighting system! Made the whole experience so much better.
Roomy, weatherproof, and it has a light!
We camped at two different campgrounds on our trip and set up/break down was so easy. The tent withstood one of the worst storms to hit the Niagara Falls region in years. Many others were flooded out of their tents. Ours kept all of our gear - and us - dry!
Tent was a gift to my grandchildren and they love it! It's been up in the back yard - and now that it is getting colder, will probably be up in the basement! There is plenty of room and it is easy to put up and take down.
It does have nice features.
Nice size. I call it my "Coleman Condo." The fly supports are tight and broke one setting in place. I have a Coleman Hanging Organizer and was disappointed with no hooks to hang. Ridged door is nice, but tends to not seal without pulling up to velcro strips.
spent two weekends in back yard with it (kids love it) going on some over night trips with my son who is scouts.I like the hinged door its good for kids need better stakes the ones that came with it are junk.
Just as advertised
As weekend car campers with little experience, my husband and I found this tent to suit us very well. Well designed, love the extra touches- hinged door, LED light. And best of all we stayed dry inside during the rain!!
