Product Description


Nothing kills a campsite buzz like a tent with too many poles and too little instruction. Enter the Coleman 14x8 Foot 8-Person Instant Tent, a two-room tent that sets up in less than a minute. The tent is made using an innovative one-piece design, with poles that come pre-attached to the tent. That means there's no frustrating assembly and no parts to lose. Simply unfold the tent, spread out the fabric, extend the poles, and click and lock. The only thing easier is rolling out your bag and sleeping in the open.

The tent's poles come pre-attached to the tent body, helping you pitch the tent in less than a minute.

Made of heavy-duty 150D polyester taffeta, the 14x8 Foot 8-Person Instant Tent is every bit as sturdy as its traditional counterparts. The tent is outfitted with Coleman's exclusive WeatherTec system, a series of technical features intended to protect you from inclement weather and nasty storms. WeatherTec tents are built with a coated polyester fabric combined with anti-wicking thread, webbing, and zippers, all designed to keep you dry when the rain comes down. The tent's welded waterproof floor and inverted floor seams, meanwhile, dramatically increase the water resistance by hiding the needle holes inside the tent and away from the elements.

The tent is also fully taped, eliminating the need for a separate rainfly. Add in a strong, wind-responsive frame and you have a shelter that performs like a brick house during a storm. In fact, Coleman is so confident in its WeatherTec system that it exposes its WeatherTec tents to a rain room that simulates nasty downpours, and to a wind machine capable of blowing hurricane force gusts. The results? Even after the tests, Coleman guarantees its WeatherTec tents will keep you dry. It stands 76 inches tall in the center and includes room for two queen airbeds. The tent weighs 37.7 pounds and carries a limited one-year manufacturer's warranty.

The tent sleeps up to 8 people in its 112-square-foot footprint.
About Coleman
More than 100 years ago, a young man with an entrepreneurial spirit and a better idea began manufacturing lanterns in Wichita, Kansas. His name was W.C. Coleman, and the company he founded would change life in America. A man plagued with such poor vision he sometimes had to ask classmates to read aloud to him, Coleman saw a brilliant light in 1900 in a drugstore window that stopped him in his tracks. He inquired about the light inside and discovered he was able to read even the small print on a medicine bottle by the illumination. The lamps had mantles, not wicks, and were fueled by gasoline under pressure instead of coal oil. Soon afterward, Coleman started a lighting service that offered a "no light, no pay" clause--a big step forward for merchants who were burned by inferior products that rarely worked--and drew substantial interest from businesses that wanted to keep their lights on after dark.

In the ensuing years, Coleman expanded its product line well beyond lanterns. The company's current catalog is thick with products that make spending time outdoors a pleasure. There are coolers that keep food and drinks cold for days on end, comfortable airbeds that won't deflate during the night, a complete line of LED lights that last for years, powerful portable grills that cook with an authentic open-grill flame, and much, much more. Coleman has truly fashioned much of our outdoor camping experience, and expects to do so for generations to come.

It easily fit back into the carry bag.
I'm still giving this tent a 5 star rating because we loved the good qualities SO much and the only flaw (leaking) can be fixed with the rain guard purchase.
Sandra Cox
Very easy and quick set up and take down.

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.

This tent is really great! Had it for a month now. I'll just list pro's and cons to keep this review simple:
1 - Large! Lots of room and tall enough to stand!
2 - Roof vents! Keeps it cool.
3 - Large windows, front area towards the door is mostly screened - very nice!
4 - Fairly waterproof right out of the bag. Did not waterproof and left it out in a storm where we got 50mm of rain! (yes, 50!! It was coming down harder than I have ever seen... hail included.) There was only a very small (about a tbsp) puddle of water by one side.
5 - Seams are taped, fabrice is of good quality.
6 - Poles are very sturdy.
7 - SETS UP IN NO TIME! I am a 24 year old girl and did it by myself for the first time without reading instructions in 56 second (watched some videos on youtube before purchasing :))

1 - Tent is heavy and difficult to get back in the bag (like most tents)
2 - In the bag, it is quite long, and needs to be stored near the back of my Sunfire's trunk, or else it does not fit.
3 - tent pegs you get with it are CRAP. Spring for some better ones.
4 - Taking it down takes a bit of effort, although it still takes less time than a traditional tent. It's just a different kind of hassel with this one as you have to fold everything in very carefully so you don't pinch the fabric and tear a hole.

All in all, and awesome tent. We got new pegs, waterproofed the seams and fabric, and bring a tarp to put over top just for extra protection from very high volumes of water. Awesome tent, well worth the $$. :)

Used this tent for the first time this past weekend. Super easy to set up/take down!
Lots of room for the two of us. However, I can't imagine six people fitting in this at all--
even four would be tight. The only disappointment was that it leaked. We had a rainstorm
one night that lasted about 5 hours. Not windy, just rain. We were cold and damp -- the tent leaked badly,
especially in the areas of the 2 inside pockets, and other places as well. So . . . we purchased a large
screen house to put over the tent for next time. Hopefully, that will help keep us dry. Live and learn.
In my opinion, this tent definitely needs a rain fly. Hope this helps anyone who is considering this item.
Forgot to mention that days before we left for the camp, I set up the tent and gave 2 coats of "Camp Dry."
That didn't prevent leaks either. Just be prepared if you are using this tent in the rain --

This tent was packaged well. Easy to follow directions and was very simple to set up. I am an Eagle Scout and have been camping for over 35 years so the tent was pretty intuitive to set up. It says "Weathertec - guarenteed to keep you dry" on the outside. I read everything for sealing instructions prior to taking this to the woods. No requirements for sealing included and in fact it said all seams taped. I felt pretty confident. The weekend was calling for temps in the 50's and rain (not hard... just drizzle). I opened and tested the setup prior to camp. It was easy and seemed large enough. I took it out and had it set in approximately 30 seconds. The tent was spacious for two 6'2 guys and gear (cots) sleeping gear small packs and room to spare. It was shorter than expected and a bit smaller than I hoped... topping off about 5'5" at a guess and very tight with a cot (it touched the wall on both ends). The worst was the rain. It held up well to the first 1/2 hour or so but soon it was leaking. By 2am... it was damp... by morning there was about a cup of water in the floor. And the walls were soaked. The bathtub floor retained all the water. It leaked very badly. From seemingly every pore. The second night I spent alone in the dead center. Sleeping bag was soaked the tent was soaked and everything I had was damp even though it was in a chair or on a cot. It took over a day to dry the tent out to ship it back. All this from a light drizzle. Less than 1/2 inch of rain over two days. The firewood on the ground outside was dryer than the personals in my tent. On a scale of 1-10 Ease of set up 10, keeping out bugs 10, big windows 10... this could be a great shelter on a clear day but waterproof 1.
