*Sept 2012* We signed our son up for Cub Scouts. Have not been camping in years. Knew that once we got to the campsite, it would mainly be me setting up the tent. A 7yo only helps so much. :-) Watched some of the online videos on the Coleman Instant Tents and decided to try it. If you follow the procedure, it is super easy to set up. I did the 8x person tent in less than 10 minutes by myself. Lots of space inside. Nice room for someone 6'2" and 250lbs. Rained the first night and we stayed dry, but I had taken the precaution of spraying water repellant on the tent the week before. Not sure if it was needed or not. Taking down the tent was about 15 minutes for just me. Son was off playing. Follow the setup and take down procedures and you will be the first one set up and the first one to take down at a campsite. I only gave it 4 instead of 5 stars because there is no Coleman Tarp as an option. It is a very nice tent for the occasional family or Scout outing. We are happy campers ! *Update Sept 2013* We purchased this product last year, 2012, when it had the Coleman Max name, but I believe it is the same tent. Looks and description are the same. I agree with the other reviewer. Most of the current tents from ANY brand will not really sleep the number of people stated. I would go by half on most descriptions. When we go it is just my son and I. By the time we get a cooler and our other support items inside, it would really sleep about 4x max. Other tents I looked at had a similar "description vs real world" size issue. We are still satisfied with the tent after a year + of ownership. I set it up in August and resealed the seams and sprayed water repellant on the outside again to make sure we stay dry this season. Take care of it, take your time setting up and taking down, maintain it, and it should last for a while. Looking forward to another fun Cub Scout camping year !

This tent did set up in about 1 min. and is of good quality, but it is not as roomy as stated! I purchased this tent to go on our annual guys camping trip. Even though I didnt go yet, I am dissappointed to see that 4 single sized cots would not fit comfortably. I set it up in my yard and tried several configurations. I fit 3 cots (which are small) comfortably. The only way 8 people would fit in this tent is if they were children sleeping elbow to elbow! I didn't return this tent because it is simple to set up and is of good quality. It will be perfect for my wife,me and our 2 dogs! as far as my guys trip, I will be lugging my Northwest Territory 10 man tent which will fit 4 cots comfortably, but is a chore to set up! Tent manufacturers have to think of peoples comfort and personal space when they say how many people it will sleep!

1 of the top corner spring locks broke the 2nd time I took it down. 3 more spring locks broke the 3rd time I took it down. We were unable to put it back away in the bag. It has no tolerance for wind. If you live in someplace like Texas where wind is common you do not want this tent. I called Coleman and they have replacement poles but they don't come with repair instructions. The tent is not listed on their website. I camp 2-3 weekends a month.

I bought this tent on a whim at our local store and was so nervous. When I got home I started researching different tents. I had my husband pick up the Quest version at Dick's Sporting Goods and we set both of them on our lawn before our last minute trip. The Coleman version was so much better. It was easier to set, made from better materials and overall looked better. Now, I know, I'm no where near an experienced camper and there are certainly better tents out there. But for us weekend campers this tent is just awesome. Literally less than 5 min to set up and it's easy to move around after assembled. It's pretty light considering how large it is. Putting it back in the bag can be a bit of a chore though. I can't attest to how it holds up in heavy rain but it did rain a bit one night and we had no leaks. This, however, is not an 8 person tent. I'd say 5-6 adults tops with gear but most tents claim they hold more people than they actually do. It's just me, my husband and 2 dogs so we all fit very comfortably. 1 queen air mattress and a twin for the dogs. Overall, yeah, it's a bit on the pricey side but the ease of set up and overall looks imo has been worth it. I'm posting a few pics that may help some folks. The "pup" tent is the Embark 2 person from target ($30) not an instant tent but very easy to set up, 5 min tops. Happy camping!

It is well built. I haven't used it in the rain yet but I bought the rain separately. It says you don't need one but I got it anyway.
