Camping is one of the best ways to spend quality time with your family in the outdoors. A tent is one of the most important camping equipments every family should have. If you have quite a large family, you can consider getting a Coleman 8-Person Instant Tent. Just as its name suggests, this tent can accommodate up to 8 people. It is also very easy to set up; the poles are pre-attached to the tent, so there is no need for assembly. You just need to unfold and spread out the fabric, extend the poles, click and lock into place. The tent can be set up or taken down in just one minute. The cabin structure is stronger and heavier than most tents, thus it is perfect for long stays.
The fabric of the Coleman Instant Tent 8 is heavy duty and is twice the thickness of the standard Coleman tent fabric. It is made of high quality 150D polyester taffeta which is tear resistant. Thanks to Coleman’s WeatherTec system, the tent is virtually waterproof. Every seam is fully taped, so there is no need for a separate rain fly. However, you are advised to waterproof the tent if you want extra protection from heavy rain. There are seven large windows that provide excellent air circulation and 360 degrees of view. The roof vents help keep the inside of the tent cool at all times. The 16mm, 20mm and 22mm poles are made of steel and are durable and rigid.
The Coleman Instant Tent 8 has plenty of space and is tall enough to stand; it is 14 x 10 feet and the center height is 6’5″. The removable partition can be used to divide the cabin into two rooms, and the tent has two doors: one in front and one in the back. The tent comes complete with a durable carry bag and a limited 1 year manufacturer’s warranty.
The only major drawback of this tent is that it is fairly heavy and difficult to put in the carry bag. However, this is a common problem for most tents. Other than that, this tent is the ideal choice for large families. It has garnered a lot of positive reviews from users, and it has even won a VIP (Very Innovative Products) Award from the Good Housekeeping magazine. You can purchase this awesome tent from Coleman’s official website of from Amazon, and prices start from $203. Not bad for a tent that fits 8 people!
