What kind of Coleman Instant Cabin Tent is this?
This tent includes multiple excellent characteristics that Coleman usually has in their tents. So this is a standard cabin tent with angled but straightened walls. However, this is an instant setup design, meaning the structure is attached to the tent, and you carry it that way, as shown in the image below. So when you need it, you can have it up and running in just a few seconds. It’s on my list of the best instant set-up tents.
The tent is also completely self-contained, which is appropriate considering it may be tossed on any surface, whether concrete or greenery, sand or rock, indoors or outdoors. This implies the fly has limited coverage, with buckles at the tent’s corners. This provides panoramic views through its five large windows.
Another great feature is its dark-rest design, as shown in the image below. They claim that the fabric reflects 90% of the sunlight and that the interior is more relaxed. So, even if it’s bright and sunny outside, you can fall asleep during the day. Naturally, I’ve included it on my list of the best dark rest tents.
This isn’t all; there’s also a hinged door, as seen below. If you are unfamiliar with this design, some poles run around the door’s perimeter, an immobile structure precisely like your door. There are also Velcro tabs that keep it closed, so you don’t have to fight the zipper all the time. It is now on my list of tents with hinged doors.
This is also a very tall tent, with a stand-up height of 79 inches (201 cm) in all parts and a peak height of 79 inches (201 cm). Two doors (one has a hinged door) and five separate windows with mesh and panels for protection and privacy.
Who is it intended for?
Capacity-wise, the tent can accommodate ten people. However, the surface area is only 140 ft2 (13 m2), so try to fit only a few people in this tent. It can fit two queen-size beds (they claim there is room for four, but this makes no sense), so this determines the actual capacity, which is 4 5 people. It is adequate for parents camping with two children.
In terms of seasons and climate, this tent is a summer-going camping tent, or at most for two seasons (late spring, summer, and early autumn). Because the ceiling is all mesh and cannot be closed, it is ideal for warm-weather camping but not cold camping.
They say the tent can withstand winds of up to 35 miles per hour, but this is an extraordinarily boxy and towering structure. The framework is robust, and it can be appropriately staked to the ground, but I would not use this tent in windy areas. A high fly like that would only last for a while.
In terms of rain protection, the fly is small, and even if it is fully water-resistant, the rain will run down the walls, where there are numerous zippers, increasing the likelihood of a leak. It is best to avoid areas that have heavy rains.
Weight-wise, with a weight of 42 lb (19 kg) and a packed size of 42 x 9 x 9 inches (107 x 23 x 23 cm), this is a camping tent for locations with car access. However, because of its instant design, it is appropriate for people who change their location frequently, so if you are on a cross-country tour or something similar, this is the tent to consider.
This is officially a two-room structure with a detachable divider, and those who live in these two rooms have access to a pair of doors. The framework is all steel, a plus for this tent; however, the hinged door poles are flexible fiberglass.
Additionally, all windows have zippers, which is unexpected given the price, but it has to be with such a partial coverage fly.
There is no description of the fabric used in the development, and this is true for both the Coleman website and Amazon. As a result, this is very upsetting. Only an announcement about the WeatherTec system, patented welded floors, and protected seams can be found.
Reading among the lines on the attached floor indicates that this is polyethylene, an extremely durable and utterly water-resistant material. I believe you are safe from groundwater. From the rest of their tents, I also know that the WeatherTec system includes polyester for the fly and walls, as well as a light PU coating.
Ventilation should never be a problem in this tent because several meshes are on the ceiling and windows. But it lacks floor vents, which would make it much more livable.
