The rainfly itself is pretty much what you expect, a very tight weave of poly fabric with double-stitched seams, and it should work well. Considering all the Instant Tent reviews talking about leaking this should have been an available accessory from the very beginning, and if Coleman's smart about it they should start including it with the purchase of a new tent. A rainfly not only helps keep you dry when it rains, it also provides the air gap that becomes an extra bit of insulation in winter and summer. Since the fly has no venting it will retain some of the warmth leaking out the top of the tent in cold weather. In my neck of the woods it also provides some extra shade in the summertime.
The two main reasons I gave this item 4 stars and not 5?..
1. What vestibule? I realize the product description comes from Coleman, the manufacturer, and not from Amazon. That said, Amazon needs to amend it and take the manufacturer to task for the incorrectness. I pre-ordered this product even though no one had seen it yet and there were no pictures anywhere on the internet. I am happy that I have a rainfly for a tent that I enjoy using, but when the description clearly states "...The Rainfly also instantly creates a spacious vestibule outside -- perfect for stowing shoes and other gear...Read more ›
The 14 X 10 Instant Tent that Amazon carries (model # 200005512) is the 2009-2010 that DOES NOT come with a rainfly.
The 14 X 10 rainfly from Coleman (model# 2000010328), however, WILL fit the 2009-2010 model from Amazon as I spoke with their customer service "Mellie" and she confirmed that it would. Their number is (800) 835-3278. The 14 X 10 rainfly costs $54.99 (not including shipping/tax). This is the one you will need.
HOWEVER, Coleman "Mellie" said that the newer Instant Tent(s) (model # 200008054 and 200010319) DO COME WITH A RAINFLY.
However, just because I think it's a required "accessory," I still don't think it lives up to the 25 dollar price tag or it's marketing claims. First, it does not create a "spacious vestibule outside-- perfect for stowing shoes and other gear." I got that from the amazon listing. I had to look up vestibule in the dictionary, and after testing our new tent and rainfly in the field, I felt jipped that I paid for a vestibule and did not get one. It does not create any space outside the tent besides the 4-5 inch clearance between the tent and the rainfly, and you can't even crack open the windows while it's raining because the rainfly doesn't reach down far enough. As I mentioned, all it does is the very basic job of keeping rain out of your tent. That this was not included in my tent purchase, along with the fact that it doesn't do what is advertised with creating more usable space makes this a disappointing product. That said, if you know what to expect, maybe you won't be as disappointed.
Please contact Coleman and ask for the Australian version of the rainfly!! Now that it's backordered, (as of April 2013), they might as well provide the better Australian version that actually matches the product description!
