COLEMAN 8 Person Instant Tent Review:

COLEMAN 8 Person Instant Tent Review

The Coleman 8 Person Instant Tent is an upgraded version of its earlier version, the Coleman 6 Person Instant Tent. Both are pretty much the same, but the upgraded version is with some extra features over its side which we are going to inspect later today. The two biggest point of getting these are obviously going to be their easy and convenient setup along with their inexpensiveness.

We have further divided the review into some parts to focus on some specific points. Let’s now check them out.

Simplicity and Set-up of the Tent:

If you are the one who is setting up a compact yet huge tent like this for the very first time, I would recommend you to try setting up the tent and re-packing it a couple of times to set your hands up over the tent before you start your adventure. By this, I mean that even if the tent is very easy and convenient to set up, it can be a little time taking for the first two times.

In the Instant Tents like this, the poles come pre-attached to the fabric (or the tent itself) so you just need to extend those poles and put them in the right place.


The Coleman 8-Person Instant Tent comes along with three setup options. The Conventional Pitch is for them, who really do not mind setting up the tent taking their own time. This kind of setup can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 30 minutes depending on one’s expertise over the tent. Next comes the Fast Pitch. This setup uses color-coded pre attached poles and hubs which can help you pitch the tent up to 50% faster than normal conventional pitch tent setup. The last comes the Instant Setup, which helps you set up the tent within the time frame of just 60 seconds. It is as simple as unfolding, extending, and securing.

Size of the tent:

In this case, the product title tells the story itself. The instant tent can easily fit up to eight people in it without any hassle according to the product description. Along with one of the major things that the 8-Person Instant Tent and the 6-Person Instant Tent differs in are their sizes.

The two Instant tents differ in their Floor Sizes (14 by 8 feet vs.10 by 9 feet respectively) and ceiling height (6 feet 4 inches. Vs. 6 feet respectively) along with different price tags. Moreover, the upgraded version can be divided into two rooms if you want it to.


COLEMAN 8 Person Instant Tent ReviewWeathertech Features:

The COLEMAN 8-Person Instant Tent comes along with its “Weathertec Features”. These features include a couple of things. Starting off with Protected Seams. The Inverted seams enhance the weather protection by covering needle holes inside the tent.

Coming next, the Zipper Protection. The zippers are made up of weather-resistant fabric which further adds protection from the elements to the door. It also features a Wind-Strong Frame which is smartly designed to be stronger and more wind-responsive frame along with the redesigned poles.

Last but not least, comes the Waterproof Floors. The welding-inspired technology strengthens the tent floor and passes off the needle holes making the floor waterproof.

Final Verdict:

So that was all for the COLEMAN 8 Person Instant Tent review. If you are a frequent camper or even a person who likes camping with their family or friends, this instant camping tent is perfect for you. It comes with 2 doors and 7 windows for full ventilation and a removable divider between the 2 rooms.
