I received my tent last night and immediately set it up.

Initial Inspection:
- All parts were included and the construction looks to be quality.
- The fly is taped
- The floor is a poly tarp material which looks like it will be durable.
- The screen does not look to be "noseeum" quality but a more course screen material. After inquiring about this with Coleman, I was informed that the screen is indeed no-see-um technology as are ALL Coleman tents. After looking at the screen again, it has a rather course screen with finer fibers woven into it. I'll update if I ever get bit by a no-see-um in my tent.

-It took me 20 minutes to do alone the first time including untying the guy lines and staking it down. The tent is intuitive to set up for anyone who has set up a dome tent before.

Leak Test:
- It rained lightly right after I set up the tent. 30 minutes and no leaks.
- The rain stopped and I wasn't convinced so I set up the sprinkler like I do for all of my tents.
- After 1 hour which was about 3/4" of "rain", the corners of the tent leaked as did the seams where the floor meets the tent walls. I will need to seam seal that seam for sure.
- There was one drop of water on the screen which came through the fly in the top center of the tent. I need to pull the fly off and inspect for defects. There was some slight pooling so I need to recheck my setup to ensure it is set up correctly as suggested by the Coleman Customer Service.

General Observations:
- The "porch" area is large and keeps the weather off of the door. It would make a great place for 2-3 people to sit in the shade or out of the rain.

This is a nice basic dome tent, seems like the perfect amount of room for car camping with my husband and two 5 yos. I am 5'2 and was able to put this tent up with a little bit of help from my 5 yo. The fabric sleeves that the poles go through seem a little thin, which is why I give this 4 stars. We'll see how it holds up over time. We decided to purchase this tent, over other more expensive tents, for the hinged door, which I am already SO HAPPY with. The tent went up in the yard for waterproofing and my kids were in and out of that tent over and over again. No zippers to worry about with the door.

The tent has a lot of mesh on the sides and towards the front, however it is covered by the rain fly. There is a zippered window in the back. It has a bathtub floor and a little plastic loop in the ceiling to hold a light. Two mesh bags, one on each side inside to hold your cell phone, etc... And a port for running electric cables through. It also comes with a grey rectangle the same fabric as the floor that you can stake down in front of the door for a doormat.

Overall, this looks like it will be a great starter tent for my young family. The price is right and if it lasts through the next few summers with my rough kids, I will be happy. And then after they are older and more conscientious, I may upgrade to a pricier tent.

7/19/2011: After sealing the seams and letting them dry for 24+ hours, we left this tent up in our backyard overnight during thunderstorms. The areas where the seams were not sealed on the rainfly because we could not reach, leaked. There were little puddles around the edges of the tent. So make sure you seal the seams if you buy this tent. we are going to finish the sealing and hope that fixes the problem.

This tent was a recent purchase intended to be used for family car camping trips for this summer. Over Memorial Day weekend I set the tent up for the first time in the backyard so the kids could check it out and I could get a feel for the size of it and waterproof it prior to taking camping.

I felt I had to chime in on this as this tent has exceeded my expectations so far.

First of all, the tent is a perfect size for a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids). It could be the perfect tent for a larger group as long as you don't mind feeling "cozy". I like the 12x12 footprint of the tent & was one of the initial reasons for going with this one along with other features it had. The square footprint allows it to feel roomy and again, reviewing it as a family of 4, there was more than enough room for all 4 of us with plenty of room to spread out and for all of the gear we brought out to the tent from the house. We inflated a queen sized mattress for the kids and that took up half the width of the tent with space at the top and bottom of the mattress for coolers, books, toys, shoes and all kinds of other stuff. On the other half there was more than enough room for me and my wife to move around comfortably without feeling confined. It felt like a shared bedroom in size. If you were to fit 6-8 people in it with just sleeping bags, there is certainly enough room, but I'm sure it wouldn't feel as spacious. The tent is rather large and could possibly be setup by only 1 person, but the rods are long and it was easy enough to setup by me and a 4 year old, so you don't need 2 grownups to set it up.
