When we got to our campsite, we set the tent up. There were 3 of us setting it up, and it probably took about 20 minutes. I chalk that up to never setting this tent up before. It wasn't difficult at all, it's just like most tents. Spread the tent out, stake the tent down, put the shock poles together, slide them through the pockets, stand the tent up. (There were some other steps of course, and some tents vary the order.) Anyone can do it. The rainfly and room dividers were quick and simple too. We were expecting scattered thunderstorms and heavy winds, so we staked down the guylines on the rainfly, but the weather turned out to be perfectly sunny and warm all trip. My point is, this tent is as easy as it gets to set up.
We read that some people were having issues with the zippers. Knowing this, we were gentle with them and had no issues. A couple of our friends got the same tent as us (can't beat this deal on Amazon!) and had zipper issues. It looked like they stretched the front of their tent a little too taut, so the zipper couldn't zip all the way. The zipper then got stuck on one of the flaps over it and remained lodged there. I think it was more of user error, but that's just my opinion.
There's no hammer, which we expected from the reviews. We have a rubber mallet, so this was no issue. Seriously, it's only a couple bucks at Walmart and will do a hell of a better job - if you camp often, you should have one! Also, while this tent only includes your standard tent stakes, those were sufficient.
On the morning we would be leaving, the wind and rain started. We stayed in the tent and waited for the worst of it to be over. It wasn't that bad, but even so, the tent stayed perfectly dry. When the rain slowed to sprinkling, we got out and started to pack it up. The water just beaded off of the sides and rainfly wonderfully. When we got home, the sun was out, and we spread the tent out on our patio to dry it off. It didn't take long, and we were able to fold and roll it tightly enough to fit back in the bag!
We're excited to get out there and camp again, now that we have a trusty new tent! I highly recommend this tent for the price, the quality, and the ease of setup!
The other downfall is windows. There is one back window, and one front window attached to th hinge door, then to either side in the tent are mesh openings which cannot be zipped shut, so one of the nights we were freezing with all the rain and dampness. Didn't get wet thankfully, but defiantly would have liked to zip those openings shut.
When we got home after our trip, we contacted Amazon as we are going out again this weekend, got a free replacement, and free one day shipping so that was handy; Returned the defective tent with free shipping labels Amazon provided. Nervousness we may have the same issues though with this replacement tent.
We are going to, again, set it up, spray with water repelant sealant spray from Colman this time, and see if we have the same problems.
Amazon has been wonderful through all of this, but this tent from Colman might not be quite what we had hoped for....
On the plus side there was PLENTY of room, we moved the full sized air matresses two different ways, brought in our XL wire dog kennel, and all our stuff with more then enough room. Lots of room to play games or spend time inside. Came with 2 divider sheet pannels that attatched to 4 locations per side. Handy feature. Only two pockets for storage (sunglasses, keys, mini flashlights, or headlamps,etc) could have used one more, or just been a bit larger. Over all nice tent idea, but poorly done I guess.
UPDATE::: We returned and got a 2nd tent. Same type, same color, same problems except this time it also leaked in the corners where the 4 main stakes are. Very disappointed with this tent. Tabs ripped, zipper got stuck a few times (no rips thankfully) but also leaked in the corners after a night of rain. We used rain sealant on the tent twice, once when we set it up to inspect and let dry, and once again over seams once at our site. We will be getting a different tent/brand of tent. I do not recommend unless your cool with these defaults.
I added several photos good and bad to help for anyone weighing their options, pros, and cons.
This one had one of the 4 critical ring tabs rip off as soon as I put in the support poles- pic1.
The main pole support sleeve was poorly sewn and started tearing loose as soon as there was tension in the pole from the bend- pic2.
The blood on my fingers in pic2 is from getting caught by the plastic clip at one of the metal pole fittings and taking out a chunk of skin.
Two of the guy-lines for the rain fly poped off when the seams failed in the plastic rings, one immediately while assembling and one during the night- pic3.
The zipper for the main door was barely functional and "jumped teeth" in several places, but I didn't get pics.
The seam holding the door flap was particularly bad, was not reinforced, and was coming undone before the tent was even up- pic4.
My feel is that this was a knock-off, I hope Coleman would not really sell something so blatantly bad under their name.
Coleman, any response in your defense? I'd like to hear back. Any way to ID if this is a knockoff?
