The Hooligan 2 from Coleman is a 2 person backpacking tent. It features a full coverage coated polyester fly (450mm) that envelops the tent in a cocoon of protection from the harshest weather. A small front vestibule offers some storage space for extra gear and the all mesh body is great for ventilation and stargazing on nights when the weather is clear. The fly seams are sealed at the factory and the rugged 1000D polyethylene floor is a bathtub style (wraps up the sides) for extreme weather protection and has welded seams, even in the corners, to guard against leaks. Set up is with a single pole and thus could not be more simple and quick.

Without the rainfly it's primarily mesh all around the four sides. One unique feature is the top side vent. It has its own small rod support to hold the vent open and a zipper that opens allowing access to three latches across the top to allow closure during rain. There is nothing inside the tent to hang a lantern from. There are two mesh pockets to hold misc. items located across from each other on the side walls.
The rainfly can be a bit cumbersome. The tent itself use (6) stakes total. The rainfly uses (12) total. There are a lot of Velcro connection points to the rods as well, make sure and follow the directions and get all of them as these are essential for the stability of the tent. We haven't been through any storms in it yet, but the rainfly covers the entirety of the tent and drops down to within inches of the ground on all sides. The only openings on the rainfly are the vestibule entry, which has an overhang protecting the zipper and the top vent. Assuming it did rain the three latches when engaged should be able to keep the rain out on the top vent. If rain is getting in then you'd need to adjust the guyed support rope the better angle the top cover of the vent.
The vestibule adds some additional storage space that's covered and protected from the elements, though items would be sitting on the ground. If you place a tarp under your tent, you could pull some additional tarp out and into this area. I stand at 6' 2' and the vestibule entrance almost has me crawling thru to get in. Keep this in mind as it might be easier to load up the tent with your rainfly off. The door to the tent itself is huge and has two latches allowing it to stay open when unzipped.
There is a small little pocket built into the inside of the rainfly so that the vestibule entryway can be unzipped and tucked away to allow additional ventilation.
Word to the wise. When setting up the tent in windy conditions, make sure and set the tent up so the tent entryway faces the wind as described in the set-up directions. The vestibule will help guide the wind up and over the tent and the crossed rods (tent rods and vestibule rod Velcro to each other under the rainfly) provides much more stability then the two rods at the back of the tent. This comes from personal experience in 25-30mph winds. The winds were hitting one of the back rods, which was bending it inwards on the tent. I couldn't rotate the tent at that time, but found out that through manipulation of the guyed support rope on that end helped provide additional stabilization during the heavier winds. Other then that, the tent held firm and that was with the factory anchor pins. I could mimic the inward pull on both back rods during calm conditions from inside the tent. The two front rods wouldn't pull inward like the back ones... So again, set the front towards any heavy and/or expected windy conditions. The vestibule entryway is from the side, so the entrance will still be protected.
The tent folds up and compacts nicely. The rainfly when packed down takes up about as much space as the tent. The rods are standard length. Probably not the best for back packing but great for our family with three young boys.
Setting up solo tent takes approx. 18 minutes, tear down/fold-up takes approx. 20 minutes.
Camped out mid December in about 28 degree temps. The tent obviously isn't designed for that temperature, with a thin fly and mesh ceiling, and lots of spots for the wind to get in. In the summer I bet this tent is nicely vented, but that definitely didn't help.
Thankfully with a Buddy tent heater and a 0 degree sleeping bag I made it fine.
Tent comes together easily like any of these shock cord tents do.
Great for the price - great for spring, summer and fall (probably), not so great for 2 people.
The tent itself is nice and I like it better than some of the dome tents I've used in the past. The two-person model is really a 2-man tent and I was able to fit a twin air mattress with plenty of room to spare. I am pretty sure a queen air mattress would fit, or certainly two sleeping pads (but not two twin mattresses). I had more than enough room with myself and my (small) dog as well as most of my stuff and his kennel.
The tent itself is not complicated to set up, but it is a little tricky (though by no means impossible) for one person. There is only one pole, which goes through the middle of the tent body. This makes it essential to stake down all four corners of the tent as well as about eight places on the rainfly. It is nice that the tent body is mostly mesh so that you could sleep under the stars if there is no chance of rain. The stakes included are the standard stakes that come with anything, so they are not great, but they get the job done (though they bend far too easily). There is also no room to place a rock on the tent body if staking is not an option. I would say it took maybe 10 minutes to set up by myself.
The tent fit perfectly on top of a 6'x8' tarp. The bathtub floor does make it seem like it isn't properly set up, but that is just to keep water out. The tent is spacious enough and tall enough that I didn't feel at all claustrophobic in the tent. I'm 6'1" and had plenty of headroom and footroom while lying down and while sitting up or squatting. While obviously I couldn't stand up in the tent, I was able to change clothes without too much difficulty in the tent.
The "vestibule" is not very big. While it was big enough to keep boots and a few token items, it is not even close to big enough to fit a person inside of it. That said, it is a nice feature that did help keep a lot of dirt out of the tent.
With the rainfly attached, it is possible to unzip a window on one side of the tent and leave half of the vestibule open on the other, providing decent cross-ventilation.
On my trip, it endured some rain but nothing torrential, so I can't speak to how well it would do in a downpour. I'll try to remember to update if I do experience that. That said, in the rain I got, it didn't let any moisture in.
This is touted as a backpacking tent. I would say this might be a bit of a stretch as it isn't exactly light. However, it does pack up fairly compact. I folded it in half twice (making it 1/4 the width) and rolled it up around the collapsed pole as per the instructions and it fit in the provided bag. It isn't ultralight by any means, but it is a solid option at a solid price. I know a lot of the seasoned backpackers/campers might sneer at Coleman, but at least as far as this tent is concerned, it is a great value and a solid tent.
-They are reasonably easy to set up.
-They weathered a number of hefty storms well and kept us dry.
-The large vestibule is wonderful and usually vestibules this good are only found on much more expensive tents.
-THE VESTIBULE DOOR IS TINY!!!! This is the one big drawback to this tent. It's crazy that the vestibule door requires you to crawl in on all fours when the door of the tent itself is large and generous. This is so extreme that this is the difference between 5-stars and 3-stars on this tent for me.
-Heavy. This is unsurprising in a tent this inexpensive. It just means the tent is strictly for car or canoe camping.
-Storage bag zipper is garbage. On both tents I own this blew out on the first camping trip.
