    Very Pleased, September 13, 2011

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    Great Tent, upgraded from a 3 man to this for more room(with 2-4 people) and its perfect.

    Can easily fit a queen and twin air matresses, (2 queens as stated will fit but its very tight).
    1 queen with bags/equip leaves still plenty of room(usually how i use it.)

    Outside screened porch is awesome. great design for you to relax outside but not get bug-bitten. Great place to keep any other outside belongings overnight also. Porch is same plastic bottom as the rest of the tent floor, with drainage for any water/rain. Rainfly doesnt cover all of the porch, but a good amount of it, over half. (screened area WILL get wet during hard rain/wind).

    Tent holds up in rain well, had 2 hours of torrential downpour first time i used it, and stayed 99% dry, (after 2 hours the inside of the rainfly at the top was slightly wet, and the wind-side seam had a few drops.) nothing seamsealer/waterproof spray wouldn’t prevent. tub-floor stayed totally dry also. winds reached 20mph during the rain, (gusts even higher) and tent held up fine.

    One thing that people may not like is the backwall/window, which is screened from the top of the tent to half way down, with no zip-close flap. provides lots of circulation, but as another reviewer said, sometimes it isn’t a good thing. I dont mind it, the rainfly covers the entire window completely and then some. The side windows are a good size screen, with zipper close flaps.

    May upload pictures/video of the tent for better perspective. If your upgrading from a smaller tent, and liked the porch, and the cost isn’t too big of a concern, then i would hands down get this tent again. I think its well worth the money.

    Surprised by how much I like this tent…., June 17, 2013

    This review is from: Coleman Evanston Screened Tent (Sports)
    Was never really a big fan of Coleman tents due to the very heavy weight of the fiberglass poles, but for the price of them I get it.
    That said, I was pleasantly surprised by this tent, even alone it was easy to put up and held up very well in a heavy downpour with strong gusty winds, even when two tree branches came down on it! It’s very roomy for 2 and still comfortable for 4 if you must but at 1 person it’s a palace!!! There have been some complaints on the screen room from being slanted in-ward at top and rain getting in to build up of water in the floor. I myself did not have any problems, yes the rain will come in but I have to say I know why they did it, in my opinion at least. The views are incredible from laying on a pad on the floor. My Coleman 4 in 1 mattress pump died so I used my backpacking pad which is only 3″ high and with the door open to the screen room I could see the whole sky. Watching the lighting and the rain come down the trees waving, it was really cool & scary at the same time!! Ha ha. Totally worth a little rain in the screen room area, the rest of the tent was bone dry. To maximize the useable area in the screen room I also used 2 backpacking chairs from Alite Mantis, which gave serious head room along with 2 dogs and a 70 QT cooler with room left over. The built in awnings over the windows in the main tent are nice to keep rain out but do block your view a bit. One tip when pitching tent if you make the area on the floor at back of screen room to tight the floor will raise up a little and you’ll be tripping on it going in and out of main living quarters. Yup, I made it too tight!! Also would probably replace guy line with reflective ones for night time trips to the potty or if you drink a lot of alcohol!! I agree that replacing the tent stakes is a must for a strong secure pitch. The photos are just more for seeing it pitched, not so much for stuff inside it as it was a quick test run before a trip. Hope they help. Oh and the grey poles with rubber tips are for the peak to open the awnings up.

    We purchased this tent for really hot summers. On our first outing, it was close to 100 degrees and humid with a massive thunderstorm in the middle of our extended weekend.

    Its very easy to set up with two people and doable with one.
    The front screen portion of the tent is enough to have a couple of chairs and a table the size of an end table and even a dog in between, its actually very pleasant.
    Sized for 6 people shoulder to shoulder this was more than roomy for two people with a blowup double size mattress.
    It will keep you dry in a massive thunderstorm.

    Things to note; the top tent covering fits exactly and does not have a lot of wiggle room which means that the back window can be exposed if not fitted correctly as it does not have a zip up cover.
    I would have gladly paid extra for the zip up coverings in both the back window and the front screened in portion. The best course of action with a heavy rain is to collapse the screened tent portion; otherwise you will end up with a flooded muddy mess.


    Its a very good tent,large and it stayed dry during an 8 hours thunderstorm. Knowing what we now know about the best approach for the front screen portion,its no longer a concern. We are happy with out tent.
