Pros & Cons
The Coleman 6-person Tent can be set up or taken down in under one minute and is an ideal portable shelter that requires only 1 adult to set up. This tent requires no extensive assembly due to its one-piece design as the poles are pre-attached to the tent, doing away with assembly time and any risk of losing the parts. Simply unfold the tent, spread out the fabric, extend the poles, click, and lock, and your tent is ready. It features a spacious floor space for two queen-sized air mattresses and the six-foot center height allows most campers to stand fully upright. It is made of sturdy weather resistant polyester fabric combined with anti-wicking thread, webbing, and zippers that are designed to keep you dry.
In addition, it also features fully-taped leak free seams, the rainfly covers doors and windows, and incorporates easy-to-use Velcro frame attachments. Moreover, the zipper cuffs add protection from the elements to the door and the inverted floor seams increase weather resistance by hiding needle holes inside the tent. The waterproof floors strengthen the tent floor and eliminate needle holes. The tent is fully taped, so there is no need for separate rain fly.
However, many reviewers have pointed out that it works great in good weather, but do not expect to stay dry if there is more than a drizzle and consider getting a rainfly accessory. It can get cramped for six people with gear but it is roomy and comfortable enough for up to four people with their camping equipment.
The bottom line is that the Coleman instant 10' x 9' tent is a great tent for your outdoor camping adventures that performs pretty well in a variety of conditions. It is ideal for weekend campers, extended camping trips or any impromptu plans.
