Rated 4 out of 5 by Nortys5 Great tent except for in-tent lighting.
Overall this tent has been great! We've used it a couple of times and so far so good. We haven't had any rain camping so far, but no problems with morning dew. Our only complaint so far is that the lighting in the tent does not work. We got the tent delivered the day before we went camping so we didn't have time to contact Walmart about sending new lighting. I plan on contacting Coleman to see if they can send me out a whole new lighting assembly. Otherwise, the hinged door is pretty cool, except you have to make sure you take a few extra seconds to manually line up the velcro as it doesn't line up perfectly. With kids though, the hinged door WAS great! Tent went up pretty quickly too with my husband and I doing it together. We had purchased a bigger 3-room tent before this one for our family of 5 and decided it was WAY too big! All of the local camping spots that we like to visit had way too small tent sites for the bigger tent. We found this bigger dome tent and it has been great! We put a queen air mattress going horizontal to the hinged door and then two twins side by side vertical to that. (We put the 3 small kids sideways across the two twins and it works great!) This left a about a foot at the end of the Queen and 2+ feet on the one side of the double twins and about a foot on the other side of the double twins, just enough for our extra stuff. The spot in the top of the tent that holds the small LED light (Ours didn't work) had a perfect spot to hang our LED Lantern.
Rated 4 out of 5 by jcspokane Great very well engineered tent.
The Coleman developement team listened to everyone when they put this tent together. It is relatively light weight so it may not last as long as simpler tents with heavier materials, but the built-in features are outstanding. I never knew a hinged screen door was possible, but it is and it made loading and unloading gear easier. The ceiling mounted LED light and wall mounted switch made after-dark time in the tent much more relaxing. There is a zipped opening a few inches above the floor at one corner for power cords. And finally I want to mention the self-rolling windows. They use a flat metal strip inserted through the center of the nylon, then velcroed in place. When the window is closed the strip is fully extended, but when it is opened the strip begins to roll itself and the window into a tube.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Whittwicky Excellent tent, easy to setup and roomy inside
We camped out last weekend and found the tent to be well-built and easy to setup.
Lots of screen area gave very good ventilation.
Rain and shade cover helped.
I especially liked the "screen door" allowing easy, one-handed entry and exit.
Some of the features listed did not match the product, a major reason for not rating this 5 stars. For example, the pass through window was not on the tent we got.
The tent top LED light is very nice, but I have two complaints. First, the night light mode provides way too much light. We only need a dim light to see at night.a
Second, the LED uses a battery pack requiring 4 D-cell batteries. It would be great to offer a battery eliminator so we could power the light from available 110vac electricity. I could not find any kind of power adapter from Coleman or 3rd part vendors.
Rated 5 out of 5 by OnceaYearCamper Great tent for the money.
Easy to set up. The light feature is great - especially if you have kids.
I like the fact that the floor plan is rectangular so purchasing a tarp for underneath is easy.
