Product Description

The Coleman Instant Tent 6 sets up quickly so you and your family can focus on day hikes, games, and what's for dinner. The polyethylene floor and polyester walls with fully taped seams keep water out (no rainfly needed), and steel poles ensure long-lasting support and durability. The zippered D door opens wide, and five mesh windows give this tent plenty of ventilation in summer.

It's a good size, great quality and is very easy to set up and take down.
Avid Reader
It is ridiculously easy to set up, and tear down, it really only takes a few minutes for one person.

I use a queen size air mattress and it fits perfect in it with room around it.

Who likes complicated and confusing?
When I go camping, the "setting up & taking down" of my tent is the part that sucks. Really sucks.
This tent is amazing. The day it showed up, I took it out of the box and set it up (just me - no one helping) in under a minute (not counting the stakes)!!
You just unfold it, extend the legs, and walk in. How awesome is that?
Don't believe me? Check Youtube. Type in "Instant Tent", look for the one with a girl in a bright yellow KOA shirt. That's the video that sold me on this tent.

It has LOTS of ventilation. the 2 sides have a large window, the back has a HUGE window. The front has a window in the door, and a window next to the door. Did I mention there are two roof vents? Yup. The roof vents have zippers on them, and a rigid "prop" thing. There's velcro on the top flap, on the top of the prop, and on the bottom of the prop (the bottom of the prop is sewn to the tent as well). You can open the roof vents from the inside by unzipping the screen and raising the prop. To close it you simply lower the prop, and velcro the top flap to the bottom of the prop.
I know, that's alot of info for something as trivial as a vent. BUT, I thought it was a very nice feature, and haven't seen it mentioned in any reviews or videos.

The windows. HUGE! I mean huge in a HUGE way! You can get plenty of air flow. When you open the windows, it's like having the whole top half of your tent as ventilation.
A note about the windows - when you open them, the flap hangs inside your tent. I've read reviews where people complained about this. Well guess what. If you leave each zipper zipped up about four inches, rather than fully open, you create a pocket of sorts, between the mesh and the fabric parts of the windows.

Color Name: Brown/BlackSize Name: 6-Person Verified Purchase
I read other reviews stating that this tent leaks but decided to purchase the tent anyway because other reviews indicated that they remained dry. I also felt confident with my decision because I have had great experiences with other Coleman products. I wish I had heeded the warnings.

I was excited when I received the tent. In a quick test in my backyard I was able to set the tent up in under a minute (note that I did not steak the tent out nor secure the guy lines).

I took the tent camping right away with the intention to camp Friday night, Saturday night and to head back home Sunday morning. We were met with a moderate rainfall that lasted three hours on Saturday morning. Within ten minutes of the onset of rain, the tent began to leak from all zippers and from the tent fabric at the top and sides of the tent. I used the tent according to specifications; it was securely staked out and guy lines were properly deployed. My daughter loves to camp so I go about 12 times each year; I know how to properly pick high ground for the tent, how to steak it out and how to secure guy lines.

The tent took on so much water that all of my gear was wet - all sleeping bags, air mattresses and clothing. Water accumulated at the bottom of the tent to form a large puddle. With more rain in the forecast for that evening, we made the decision to pack up and prematurely end our camping trip. As a side note, my friend and his family were also camping with our group in a Coleman Instant 8 and also wound up very wet.

I do not recommend this tent.

So that everyone reading this review knows that I'm giving honest feedback and am not a competitor of Coleman trying to decrease sales for the brand, I'll recommend a better Coleman product.

Color Name: Brown/BlackSize Name: 6-Person Verified Purchase
So we were a little hesitant on making this purchase after reading the 3 star and below reviews. However, some close friends and camping partner family own this tent. Here is what we did:

Step 1- Order the tent
Step 3- Order Rain Fly (no brainer people)
Step 4- When tent arrives excitedly open box, and set up in the living room (optional, and be sure to check with your spouse first as this did not go over well with mine)
Step 5- Take down tent from living room and set up again outside....Use the seam sealer around ALL seams inside and outside the tent liberally (or follow directions on sealant product)
Step 6- Put rainfly on tent
Step 7- Connect garden hose and prepare leaf blower for weather simulation testing.
Step 8- After waiting desired time for sealant to set, simulate various types of rain storms from gentle drizzle to driving hurricane force rain (do this at your own risk and be sure to roll up windows on your spouses car when aiming simulated rain in that direction)
Step 9- Now using your leaf blower blast your tent with simulated wind levels from gentle meadow breezes to Hurricane Level 4 winds if you have a 4 speed leaf combo snow blower (again, do this at your own risk)
Step 10- Stake down your tent THEN redo step 9, then apologize to your spouse for crushing her flowers.

During all the simulated test I found that the tent is NOT made for 50+ psi garden house spray down at full forces.... However, there was minimal leaking, and I think that was from spraying right at the zipper. When using in a true rain fashion there was no leaking after a 10 minute soaking.
