Product Description

Product Description

The Coleman 6-Person Instant Cabin tent makes camping easy so you can enjoy every moment of your outdoor adventure. In about a minute you can have the tent set up or taken down. The spacious tent fits two queen-sized airbeds. Two inner storage pockets provide a place to put your necessities. Rugged Polyguard 2X fabric, the exclusive WeatherTec system, and an integrated, vented rainfly keep you safer from the weather. You’ll love the Illumiline reflective guy lines, as well as the pre-attached poles of this instant cabin.

A roomy interior offers enough space for two queen-sized air mattresses.
The Coleman 6-person Instant Tent lives up to its name, and can be set up or taken down in under one minute. Innovative one-piece design means the poles are pre-attached to the tent, eliminating assembly time and the risk of lost parts. Simply unfold the tent, spread out the fabric, extend the poles, click, and lock, and your tent's ready to go.

A generous ten-by-nine-foot (W x D) footprint creates enough floor space for two queen-sized air mattresses, while the six-foot center height means most campers can stand fully upright. 16- and 20-millimeter steel poles are durable and strong enough to stand up to even stiff winds.

Coleman's WeatherTec System
This proprietary series of interworking features keeps the weather where it belongs--outside the tent--at all times.

  • Leak-free Seams: In addition to fully-taped rainfly seams, the rainfly covers doors and windows, and incorporates easy-to-use Velcro frame attachments
  • Weather-resistant Fabric: Coated polyester fabric combined with anti-wicking thread, webbing, and zippers are designed to keep you dry
  • Protected Seams: Inverted floor seams dramatically increase weather resistance by hiding needle holes inside the tent, away from the elements
  • Waterproof Floors: Welding technology strengthens the tent floor and eliminates needle holes
  • Zipper Protection: Zipper cuff adds protection from the elements to the door
  • Wind Strong Frame: Engineered to be a stronger, more wind-responsive frame by using redesigned poles and guy-out triangles to anchor tents and increase performance

Coleman has been in business for more than 100 years, and continues to produce high-quality, affordable tents, lanterns, table-top stoves, and more. All Coleman products have a warranty against defects in material and workmanship, and the 6-person Instant Tent includes a limited one-year manufacturer's warranty.

About Coleman Outdoor Products
More than 100 years ago, an entrepreneurial young man named W.C. Coleman had an idea for manufacturing better lanterns in Wichita, Kansas. A century later, Coleman's current catalog features a wide-ranging array of products that make spending time outside a pleasure. The company crafts coolers that keep food and drinks cold for days, airbeds that are comfortable and won't deflate during the night, a complete line of bright and long-lasting LED lights, powerful portable grills that cook with an authentic open-grill flame, and more.

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.

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.

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.
