First camping trip with this tent had light rain showers over night, a coat of tent sealer kept this tent completely dry inside.
Overall great product.
Having now used this tent on several trips over the past 11 months, I've updated my rating from 4 starts to 5. I absolutely love this tent and just ordered the 6-person version.
Now, there are some caveats to owning this tent, which I will discuss in detail, but I cannot find another model that comes close to offering the same features in this price range.
First, as every other review has mentioned, the fly does not fully cover the porch and it will get wet. I do not believe the designer intended for this to be a rain free awning in the first place, think of it more as a mud room at the entrance to your front door, or a buffer between nature and the main sleeping area. To use the porch as storage, I keep our belongings in plastic tubs, which I use for storing all our camping gear in anyhow. We sit on the tubs to take shoes on and off and none of the mud and dirt gets in our sleeping area. Where the porch excels is as an extension of living space. We sit inside playing card games with the interior door fully open and do not feel shut off from nature. Having that outter screen keeps air and light coming in during storms when otherwise we would have to close everything up tight. There are two gaps on the sides of the porch for running extension cords but I have not had any problems in very buggy areas with any critters getting inside the main living area and we only close the inside door when someone is changing, otherwise it is always open. There is room for one adult to sit in a camping chair in the porch and the kids can certainly use this area for playing when the bugs are bad.
Second, materials and craftsmanship are not the highest quality. In my first review I mentioned some of the steps I had to take to get this tent ready for the real world. Treat this tent gently and it will hold up fine. During a prolonged rain the fabric along the walls will wet thru, even if nothing is touching the fabric on the inside, but a waterproofing spray solved this issue for us. The seams where the floor meets the walls are a source of water in prolonged rain, but seam sealing does not work because the type of sealant that works on the wall fabric does not work on the floor and vice versa; the materials are incompatible. We just pitch it tight and keep an eye on it. The floor material itself is very thin. I use a ground tarp underneath and a throw rug on the inside. We don't wear shoes inside but it showed wear and tear immediately and I believe that someday this will be the first point of failure.
Third, no four person tent that I've ever owned will comfortably fit four adults and still leave room for spreading out and this tent is no exception. You could fit four adults but they should be four very close friends, if they're not already, they will be by the end of the trip! Two adults and one or two tiny children are going to be a tight fit. We use this for one adult, one child, and a medium/large dog. A Queen mattress doesn't leave much floor space but a Full mattress only takes up half the floor and allows us to set up a dog bed and a small nightstand or table with two chairs. Two twins also leave some space to move around. I am 5'5" and hunch quite a bit to stand up. Mostly I dress on and move around on my knees but am able to keep my back straight.
Fourth, I can set this up in about 5min by myself. Some tips I have for pitching this solo, stake out the corners of the main body first. Fully insert the shortest pole which extends over the windows. Do this before standing the tent up because the body becomes too taught to insert the cross pole into the plastic sleeves after it's up. With the four corners staked it is possible to raise the rest of the tent with only one person.
Fifth, clarification on measurements. The sleeping area measures 9'x7' and the porch is 3'x9', overall footprint is a bit over 9'x10'. Interior height is just under 5' at the peak.
Original post, dated September 26, 2015:
I own one other Coleman family tent, it's an 8-person but I was looking for a smaller size for when it's just me and my 3yr old. Since this won't get much use, maybe 10-nights a year max, I did not want to spend much money. I was expecting this to be of similar quality to my other Coleman, but it is not made nearly as well. While it is a good tent, in this price range do not set your expectations too high and be prepared to modify it a bit and you might end up pleasantly surprised.
This sets up very easy, I was able to pitch it myself with some "help" from my 3-yr old in about 8-min. The size is perfect for an adult, a toddler and a dog. I put a Full size air mattress inside, a Queen will fit lengthwise but the Full can be turned front to back and pushed to one side leaving some floor space on the other side, or you can put two twin mattresses with floor space between.
The fly seams are taped inside, but the tape is spotty and not well lined up so I went ahead and sealed the outside seams in about an hour. My other Coleman tent is also seam taped on the inside but it does tend to leak at the ridge where the poles cross, so on this tent I took particular care sealing that section. I am also going to use a spray on silicone to waterproof the fly and the body. There is a very thin coating on the material, but I do not trust it to last.
This truly is what you pay for. For the price it has a lot of features, but the fabric is thin and snags easily when sliding the poles thru their sleeves. The netting has snags/pulls on it in several places as well, it came out of the box like that. The 'tarp' material on the bottom is very, very thin and shows wear quickly. I not only have a blue tarp to use as a ground cloth underneath the tent, I also have one to put down on the inside, we don't wear shoes in the tent, but I don't want to risk damaging this delicate floor if my toddler forgets to take his shoes off. Some of the seams were sewn, then pulled out and resewn and little holes were all over the tent body and the fly as well. There are gaps between the tub floor and the sides and also at the corners where threads are pulling thru large needle holes. I put extra silicone in those areas to reinforce the seams, it should add some strength. I had to resew one of the webbing corners where the ring is attached. They only sewed half of the loop to the tent body and it was coming off before I even set it up.
Besides the use of lower quality materials, compared to my other Coleman, and concern over the fly not fully covering the porch area, this is a great little tent for the price. It did take some work to make it usable, but I guess if I wanted something of higher quality, I should've looked at more expensive options. I would recommend it if you keep in mind you may have to address some issues and will have to treat it carefully or risk seam/material failure.
It was pretty easy to put up for a single person, not as easy as one without the front screened area but I didn't expect this.
The size was what I expected it easily fit my reclining lawn chair fully extended and allowed room for my dog to wander and some storage space.
The netted sides allow good ventilation as it was an extremely hot weekend. The first night the cicadas came out they were crawling all over the outside and between the rain cover and tent its self quite an interesting night, but not a single one made it's way into the tent interior. It also rained several time during my trip, one night pretty seriously, with lightening, thunder and a decent amount of wind, for several hours, again a long night. I didn't get much sleep that night either, glad I took lots of flash lights and books. But we stayed dry. The front screened area does take on a lot of water so it's not great for storing supplies in foul weather, but it did keep the water, dirt, leaves and other debris from being tracked into the interior of the tent.
I expected it to be a little taller in height. I was hoping I could stand upright. But at 5'6" I still had to stand hunched over, which aggravates an old injury in my neck and back and makes for an unpleasant weekend. I would do a lot more camping if I could find a tent that would allow me to stand upright and still be able to put the tent up by myself.
I had a difficult time getting the zipper on the outer shelter to zip all the way. I think next time I won't pull the stakes so tight on that area to see if it helps.
It was easy to pack at the end of the trip.
I would buy it again for the price I paid
The first night we were camping the sky opened and dumped a couple days worth of rain on us. We stayed completely dry and snug once I zipped up the windows. There is still screen ventilation at the top of the tent, but that was covered by the additional tarp that is included. So we stayed dry but it didn't become stuffy. The front 'porch' as we called it did get soaked but there is an ingenious strip of screen on the floor between the porch and the main tent that allowed water to flow right out.
After a week we did get an interesting collection of bugs that decided to venture under the outer tarp and hang out on the screened roof. They couldn't get in at all and were interesting to watch. We did notice that there are two holes in the porch area near the anchors that let in bugs so it isn't completely bug proof. I think you could easily solve that by stuffing a shirt or towel in the holes.
My only real complaint is that the carry bag isn't very solid. This is our second Coleman tent bag that has quickly ripped at the seams.
