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.
This is by far the best tent I have owned and I have owned a few. The door is it's best feature or maybe it is the light switch? What a fun tent! We stayed comfy and warm. It was easy to set-up and take-down, keep in mind that this is coming from two people in their late sixties. Everything was just as the ad indicated.
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.
This tent is a great model; however, most tent listed sizes can be deceiving. The model is listed as a 6 person tent. That may be true for side by side sleeping, but after initial set-up it is more of a 3-4 person tent. The set-up was relatively quick and easy. I like the hinged door concept, and self rolling windows. The tent has a good internal height, and plenty of room to move around. I would like to see higher side walls, and less screen for more cold weather applications.
The LED light is nice to have rather than using a lantern. We did find that the plastic brackets that hold the light and light switch were broken upon first opening the tent. Coleman did not have replacement parts and recommended that we return the tent to Walmart for a replacement. I find it odd that the company that makes the very part needed, doesn't have any available for warranteed items. I would have given 4 stars had Coleman been able to accomodate the warranty of the broken parts.
Overall, I think this tent is a good purchase as a 3-4 person tent, and a good value for the price.
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.
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.
This Coleman Tent offers exceptional quality and value. All of the zippers are easy to use and didn't snag, the 10' by 12' floor space offers plenty of room and ground tarps in this size are easy to find. I'm 5'11'' and the headroom in this tent is ample for me. The built in dome light and hinged front door are two very nice features. The tent is free standing with only two poles for the tent structure and a two more for the rain fly. I was able to set it up myself in about 10 minutes. This is a great tent for the price....!
I purchased 2 tents for my daughters as a Christmas gift!!!! Will let you know what they think in January! Really easy to order sight to store .
good quality for the price
Large tent that is designed well and easy to set up
