Coleman Instant Tent, 8-Person
We had to purchase a new tent as our previous one was leaking... We decided to go with Coleman (rather than a cheaper one) and we have now survived quite a few rainstorms, and cold weather.

This is an awesome tent. Very easy to assemble and lots of room. We go camping with our grandchildren and there's room for us, them and more. Would highly recommend this.

Coleman 8-Person Instant Tent
We are not tent people, but I won this tent at a local event, we went tenting for a couple of nights, and I can honestly say that it was very easy up and down. It kept us very dry, and went back in its case nicely. There is lots of room and like others have said there is only one door, which could pose a problem for some. Overall this is a great tent and would highly recomend it. A good purchased for the money.

Love this tent!
This tent is great for us occasional campers. It really is as easy and fast to put up and take down as they say it is! Plus it actually does fit back in it's carry bag! Despite some night time rain and temps dropping to about 12c there was no condensation on the walls in the morning and everything was still dry inside. Even with the ceiling vents left open! It would hold 2 double air mattresses comfortably with the room divider up. The single door does make it tricky for the people at the back of the tent to get up without disturbing others though. It has great ceiling height throughout. Would recommend this tent to anyone looking for something that's truly easy to set up!

Bough this tent on special took my husband and son 2 minutes to put up and took about 5 minutes to put down because there was a pole that was stuck. Very ease to use. The only problem with this tent is the door zipper... every time you want to get in or out the front flap gets stuck in the zipper it is very anoying it is to bad for the price of the tent to have such a problem. Overall we are happy with our purchase.

Great Tent - Not for Summiting Everest
This is an awesome tent for what it is and does. We bought it last year when we had our 7 month old daughter camping with us and we needed everything to be quick and easy. I put up the tent for the first time (after watching the video) it took maybe a minute more than the pros took, after that it was great. Sturdy in wind and rain, lots of space for a portacrib and room to walk over to it, our bags and a double thick king air mattress! It's not an ideal tent for portage or climbing Everest but if you're planning those trips you've probably guessed that by now!

Ridden with holes
When I opened the tent for the first time it had 5 holes, so pretty much worthless.

Nice looking tent but overall not so good....
Nice looking tent, not so bad to put up but had a bit of trouble taking it down but managed to figure it out. Unfortunately, the tent had a hole in the front left wall and a hole in the floor when we got it. Appears to be from being pinched during factory packing as this tent had not been opened previously. Both holes are the same size and the same shape. Although I had to call Coleman myself for a return authorization, Canadian Tire very good about me bringing it back. I must say that I am not impressed with the zipper part of the entrance to tent. Joins like an upside down "T" and when all ends of the zipper meet it does NOT close up tightly. The seams at the top corner of the tent had daylight shining through the holes where it had been stitched as well. Maybe I am just being too fussy but how can a tent be guaranteed water proof if the holes from stitching are stretched so hard when the tent is set up that you can see daylight through them?

I bought this tent because as I single mom of two young kids I needed a tent that I would be able to set up on my own. This tent took me maybe 10 minutes to set up by myself, its awesome. We had minimal rain with no leaking. Its not huge, most definitely not an 8 person tent but they never are as they say. We slept 4 people with two double mattresses inside with some room for bags. I love that the windows in the front open up right down to the floor. Definitely would recommend this to someone that is looking for an easy set up tent. It also actually fits back into the bag after take down.

Looks Great but......
This is the 2nd time i bought the tent as the first one had a hole in it. We put up the 2nd tent in the the backyard and waterproofed it and left it out to dry the required number of hours, then a thunderstorm rolled and in a what a great chance to give it a leak test.....'FAIL'!!! Lots of water in front of the zipper, and both front corners......
The ease of put up is Excellent i will say that, up in less than a minutes is true BUT for a $300 tent, you should have the little things that other tents have, more gear pockets (only 2 and not in a handy spot) no ties to tie up the windows when they are down so they just flap in the breeze, no peg in loop where the zipper is so the zipper flaps all the time AND it does not come with pegs!!
