    Dry as a bone tent camping!, July 25, 2009

    I’ve camped for many years, first as a Girl Scout and then as an adult. My husband had never camped, let alone in a tent. I took him out in this tent to a National Forest campground in the Shenendoah mountains, and it rained steady for a week. This tent saved the vacation. The middle room served as our dining and rec center, providing ample space for our small camp table where we ate and played cards. The screened porch was a perfect vestibule, and on sunny days it’s a great place to relax, nap, read and escape from the bugs. The sleeping room is perfect for two adults and a queen-sized air bed. The middle room will comfortably sleep an entire family, or serve as the “living room”, gear room, work room, etc. It has a high ceiling with a loop for hanging a light. The over-cover and Coleman construction make this the driest tent I’ve ever experienced. After a week of steady rain, not one seep, weep or drip.

    Nice tent, but maybe not for cold weather, June 19, 2011

    I just bought this tent this weekend, so I haven’t actually used it for a camping trip, but here are my observations so far. This is from a 5’2″ female BTW. Trying assembly by myself.
    1. Roomy – nice and big. I want a tent that my son and I (and maybe one of his friends) can sleep in, as well as hang out in if we get hit by a big rain or hail storm. Very possible all summer in Colorado. This tent has plenty of room for us and our gear, and space to hang out and play cards or board games.
    2. Also lots of standing room. I hate trying to get dressed in a little dome tent. Most people can definitely stand up and walk around in this tent. I think even my husband, who is 6’2″, could walk around in this tent without stooping.
    3. Lots of venitation (windows).
    4. Seems pretty water resistant. I hosed it down for a minute or two, from the top and the sides, and didn’t see any leaks. The water kind of rolls off like when you RainX your car windows.
    5. Separate “room” so you can have privacy while getting dressed or sleeping. The tent comes with a removable “wall” – a sheet of nylon with a zipper down the middle that you can hang from the ceiling to create a separate room, or leave off and have a big tent.
    6. Attached screen room. You could probably fit a coule of chairs and a cooler in this litte screen room and hang out to keep away from the bugs. I can stand up in this room, but my husband probably would have to stoop down a little.
    7. Sort of easy to pitch…I guess. Compared to a 3-man dome tent, this takes a little longer, but for the size, it’s pretty easy once you’ve done it. This brings me to the cons…

    CONS –
    1. TERRIBLE assembly instructions. The instructions are hard to read and I think some of them are even wrong. I think one step tells you to assemble three poles with red tags when there are actually only two. I’m too lazy to get the instructions to verify that right now….
    If you get this tent, do yourself two favors: 1 – put it up at home before you take it camping. It will save you a lot of potential frustration. 2 – read the other reviewers’ recommendations on assembling this tent. Maybe even print them out and stash them in your tent bag.
    2. This is more of an observation than a con. Mostly because I am a whimp. First, a couple of the poles didn’t slide in and out of each other very easily. I eventually got them to work, but had to use some bike chain oil to get them together and apart. Also, the litte silver buttons that you have to push in to adjust the pole height were hard for me to push in. After a while, I think I bruised my thumbs. LOL So I used needle nose plyers to push them in. These will probably get easier with more use.
    3. The cooler port that is pictured above and listed on the assembly instructions for my tent does not exist. No big deal because I didn’t plan on using it. Same for the electrical port listed in the instructions. Not there.
    4. Plastic stakes??? As other reviewers have mentioned, do yourself another favor and buy a set of real tent stakes. Are you really supposed to be able to hammer a plastic stake into the ground????

    ***5. -*** READ THIS ***- Here is the big one for me. I actually can’t believe Coleman would make a product with this oversight/design flaw. THE DOOR FROM THE SCREEN ROOM TO THE TENT DOES ***NOT*** ZIP AT THE BOTTOM!!!!! Most tents are relatively air tight (as much as a tent can be, anyway). This tent basically has a front door that is just loose at the bottom and flaps in a slight breeze. It zips down the middle (top to bottom), but not across the bottom. I can’t even imagine camping in the cold in this tent. Which I will actually be doing at some point. I am going to have to figure out some way of sealing this door (blanket? duct tape????) so the cold air doesn’t come in. What is the point of having all these other zippers when you have a big opening all the way across the width of the tent, at the bottom, which is where people will be sleeping????? If I had noticed this, I probably would have chosen a different model.

    Overall, this seems like a good tent. I would say great except for the lack of zipper on the front door (still trying to fathom that one). It’s a really good size and seems pretty sturdy. Although my husband helped me lift the poles this time, I think now that I’ve done it once, I could do it next time by myself if I had to. I did actually get the rain fly on by myself, but not by following the (lousy) instructions. I attached it at the front and walked it back. I will try to post some pictures of the inside later. I was looking for some before I bought it but couldn’t find any.

    IT’S BIG!…and yet, not…, August 17, 2010

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Coleman WeatherMaster 6-Person Screened Tent (Sports)

    I bought this tent to use at a week-long star-party, so “practical” and “carry-in” weren’t objectives. What WERE objectives were that it had to be big enough for all my gear, had to be relatively reliable and well equipped, and it had to be big enough that I could move around in it with my 6’2″ figure without developing a hunch.

    Naturally when buying camping gear I ran to Coleman. It’s clear that the brand has moved far away from the mostly American-made products to overseas (China) manufacturing, so that was a little disappointing. However it probably worked in my favor since I could get more product for less $$.

    Okay, so about the tent…

    First off, this is NOT a light tent. If you’re actually going to hike this someplace, think again. The specs say it weighs 36 pounds, and you’d better believe it. It also comes in the typical Coleman tent bag (squarish green zipper bag) and the bag is about 4-feet long. Definitely something to consider if you’re planning on taking this tent somewhere on foot.

    The tent comes in a cardboard box, which is put inside the Coleman green bag, and then that is put inside a box for shipping. My tent arrived without a scratch on anything…except my wallet for the shipping charges. 🙂

    Assembly, I have to say, for a tent this size, is cake. Now like I said above, I’m 6-foot-2, and I was able to put this tent together solo without any trouble at all. In fact, with the exception of the rain fly, a midget with a step-ladder could solo-assemble this tent. (Take a moment and relish that image for a second…)

    When you open the actual tent bag, the tent is folded and rolled up around all the other parts and tied with two strips of nylon fabric. I’d recommend ditching these and getting some real straps or rope. The tent poles, stakes, and supplemental poles (for door and awnings) came in good, separate bags with tie wraps. The rain fly, removable room divider, and “door mat” were folded and rolled up as well.

    The tent poles seem very durable, well painted and marked, and where the elastic-cord is exposed in the joints, it’s actually a small link of chain, so no worries about eventually cutting through the cord with use. There’s four U-shaped pole structures for the tent. The sides of the U’s are straight and go almost the full height, and the top sections are curved. The curved sections feed into well-marked and reinforced loop-sleeves along the top, then you connect the side poles. Once you have all the pole sections in place, you just raise each one, one at a time, and stick the bottom ends into the friction-cleat at the bottom edge of the tent. As the tent raises, you have to watch that the seams of the tent line up with the poles, and you have to shift things around a little until all the poles fit in place. The side poles actually have push-pin adjustments so you can alter the height an inch or two. The directions say to raise the tent with all the poles in the lowest setting, then raise each to the highest setting to fill out the shape. I missed that step and had all the poles in the full-height position, and didn’t run into any problems. The tent DOES fit the frame with only a few inches wiggle-room, so it can seem a little tight until you get it all adjusted.

    From roll-out to the point where all four pole sets were raised took me about 10-minutes…and that’s with checking everything over twice.

    Once you have the poles up you can re-adjust the shape of the tent to get everything spread out good. There’s clips that connect the sides of the tent to the poles, and you can go ahead and fill in all the stake points. There’s a stake point at every pole point, as well as at the door, screened outside and inside, and a couple other places. Trust me, if you think there should be a stake somewhere, there’s already a reinforced loop waiting.

    Once you get the tent part up, the rain-fly goes on. I will say that the rain-fly fits TIGHT to the tent, so a little patience is needed. Make sure the “Coleman” logo is on the screened-side of the tent and not the back. The fly is sewn in a way that it fits the shape of the tent, and there’s just enough difference that it won’t fit otherwise. Once you throw the fly over the tent, each connecting point has an elastic cord connected to a good metal hook which fits into a small hole in each tent pole. I recommend starting at the middle (the center two pole sections) and doing the ends last. There’s Velcro straps that further connect the fly to the poles…attach those as you go to keep the fly from moving around as you stretch it. The fly also has attached tie-lines with toggles that you can spread out and stake down. They looked pretty sturdy.

    The whole top of this tent is screened (except where poles go over and its reinforced) so the fly is needed unless you’re chancing a dry night.

    Once you get the fly on, you put in the…
