About Coleman
The Coleman Company has been creating and innovating products for recreational outdoor use since W.C. Coleman started selling gasoline-powered lanterns in 1900. Inventor of the hugely popular fold-up camp stove, Coleman developed a plastic liner for his galvanized steel coolers in 1957--the birth of the modern cooler--and the company has been improving their utility and design ever since. The array of products that bear the Coleman name now includes just about everything you might need to work or play outdoors, from tents and sleeping bags to boats, backpacks, and furniture.

Selecting a Tent
Fortunately, there are all kinds of tents for weekend car campers, Everest expeditions, and everything in-between. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Expect the Worst
In general, it's wise to choose a tent that's designed to withstand the worst possible conditions you think you'll face. For instance, if you're a summer car camper in a region where weather is predictable, an inexpensive family or all purpose tent will likely do the trick--especially if a vehicle is nearby and you can make a mad dash for safety when bad weather swoops in! If you're a backpacker, alpine climber or bike explorer, or if you like to car camp in all seasons, you'll want to take something designed to handle more adversity.

Three- and Four-Season Tents
For summer, early fall and late spring outings, choose a three-season tent. At minimum, a quality three season tent will have lightweight aluminum poles, a reinforced floor, durable stitching, and a quality rain-fly. Some three-season tents offer more open-air netting and are more specifically designed for summer backpacking and other activities. Many premium tents will feature pre-sealed, taped seams and a silicone-impregnated rain-fly for enhanced waterproofness.

For winter camping or alpine travel, go with a four season model. Because they typically feature more durable fabric coatings, as well as more poles, four-season tents are designed to handle heavy snowfall and high winds without collapsing. Of course, four-season tents exact a weight penalty of about 10 to 20 percent in trade for their strength and durability. They also tend to be more expensive.

Domes and Tunnels
Tents are broadly categorized into two types, freestanding, which can stand up on their own, and those that must be staked down in order to stand upright. Freestanding tents often incorporate a dome-shaped design, and most four-season tents are constructed this way because a dome leaves no flat spots on the outer surface where snow can collect. Domes are also inherently stronger than any other design. Meanwhile, many three-season models employ a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, but they require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric, and typically have a rectangular floor-plan that offers less storage space than a dome configuration. Many one and two-person tents are not freestanding, but they make up for it by being more lightweight. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set up than a dome.

Size Matters
Ask yourself how many people you'd like to fit in your fabric hotel now and in the future. For soloists and minimalists, check out one-person tents. If you're a mega-minimalist, or if you have your eye on doing some big wall climbs, a waterproof-breathable bivy sack is the ticket. Some bivy sacks feature poles and stake points to give you a little more breathing room. Also, if you don't need bug protection and you want to save weight, check out open-air shelters.

Families who plan on car camping in good weather can choose from a wide range of jumbo-sized tents that will accommodate all your little ones with room to spare. A wide range of capacities is also available for three- and four-season backpacking and expedition tents. Remember, though, the bigger the tent you buy, the heavier it will be, although it's easy to break up the tent components among several people in your group. It's also helpful to compare the volume and floor-space measurements of models you're considering.

After researching practically every backpacking tent I could find on the Internet, I finally decided to go with this one. An excellent choice it would prove to be. A great backpacking tent for short or semi-short treks (it weighs less than 5 pounds)... or, for a Boy Scout, etc. I live in Northern California and the places I hike/backpack into, the temperature seldom drops below freezing... and the weather/climate is relatively mild most of the year. Anyway, it's VERY EASY to set-up and take down. It's lightweight, reasonably durable, and will actually go back into the zip-up carrying case that comes with it. My first night out, the low temperature was a mild (no rain), but chilly 48 degrees... however, it was VERY windy all evening and through the night. This tent did great keeping the wind out and me warm. I only use this tent for backpacking/trekking (I have other tents for base camp or when the family comes along). Anyway, for backpacking; whether you're just spending a few days out in the wildnerness or weeks, I see no reason this tent wouldn't do the trick just fine. I have not yet spent a night in it while it was raining, but I have (as I always do) put a seam sealer on the seams and I feel confident this tent will hold up fine. Keep these factors in mind... for relatively mild weather and climates... for semi-short or short hikes/treks, you cannot go wrong with this tent for the money. In other words, if you're hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, this tent would be considered a little heavy. Also, if you're spending a lot of time where it rains for days, or where the climate is harsh on a regular basis, dig deeper into your pockets and buy something a little more practical for your conditions. If that's the case, you can expect to spend $100+ for something like that. Last but not least, it fits into my relatively small backpacking backpack (2600 cubic inches) just fine, and leaves plenty of room for my other gear.

This is my first tent, so I'm sure my technical knowledge is limited. But I have some field experience - I hiked the Grand Canyon for a week, so here it goes:

It leaked. Not much, just on the corners of the floor seam, but it did. And it only rained lightly, so I think I would've been in trouble with a bit of heavy rain. I strongly recommend you get some seam sealer, maybe that'll fix it.

The main plus is defintely the price. I searched for tents everywhere, e-bay, you name it. This is definitely the cheapest one around (08/13/06), at least of the well-known brands.

It's pretty easy to set-up, and it's very roomy, I enjoyed that. It also has good ventilation. You can't tell from the pictures, but under the rain fly, the top-sides are made of mesh, and there is an extra mesh window (about half the size of the door) on the back side. It's great to watch the stars if it doesn't look like it'll rain.

With that said, it is a little heavy. Not unbearable, I was never miserable carrying it around on my back, but I certainly felt the weight a few times.

I think it was worth the price, but I was unhappy with the leak

I purchased this tent after reading an earlier review on a 10 year old Boy Scout was able to get it assembled in no time. As a rookie outdoorsmen, this was key, as I did not wish to become the butt of all jokes on a recent camping trip. If the tent was even the slightest bit complex, I would surely be laughed at as I blundered my way through the set-up.

However, Grizzy Adams ain't got nothing on me thanks to the Coleman SunDome. I got that bad boy up in like 5 minutes and it actually looked like I knew what I was doing. It was very sturdy and the only reason I didn't give it the full five stars is that 7'x5' is pretty tight quarters for two people.

So if you're rookie like me---and I hope you aren't---and you need a good tent that won't make you look like a fool during set-up, then go for the SunDome.

This tent is very easy to set up, and take down. It fits two kids, or one adult comfortably. This would be a great tent for fair weather camping. The first time I used it, it rained all weekend, and it leaked in each of the corners after the 3rd day of nonstop rain.

I bought this tent as I needed a smaller one for a yearly group camp out with very limited space. I didn't arrive until 11 PM and was very tired. I managed to get this little tent up for the first time by myself with only a small flashlight in just a few minutes. Just as I was ready to turn in, it started to sprinkle, so I then had to get the rain fly up. Also very easy. It was 2 days later that the rain started in earnest. This wasn't a deluge, but a steady rain that lasted about 5 hours in the day, and resumed at night for several more hours. I stayed very dry and comfy. I've seen a lot of people with cheap tents that are just that, cheap. This one seems pretty well made. The rain fly worked well. I had started out with a tarp underneath to protect the bottom, but had to grab that to cover up the rest of my equipment. I realize the flooring probably won't last forever, but I will make sure I use a groundcloth in the future. It was just as easy to take down, and the storage bag included is large enough. My only negative comment is that it is very small. If 2 people share it, I hope they are very good friends. I used a Coleman twin air bed in it, and seemed to have about 12 inches to spare for some of my gear. But I'm just used to a larger tent also. It does have a pocket on the wall, which was perfect for storing my glasses and small flashlight.
