Easy to put up but doesn't last!

published

We have had 3 of these now as they are normally priced well over summer but every one has last 2 at best 3 camping trips and that's it. They seem like they should hold up to a decent breeze but they don't. Ours is used for max 2 weeks per year for our annual camping trip and they just blow to bits. The seems start to rip in the second year and by the end of the third they go straight in the bin. They are super easy to put up (and take down when the wind gets up) but just aren't designed for NZ sun and conditions.

Purchased for $249.00.

Good design but the fly is weak.

published

Relatively easy to assemble. Work well when up. However we have owned two of them and both flys have gone brittle and torn after very little use. Poor quality. Won't buy a third!

Purchased in November 2017 at Anaconda for $199.00.

Easy ripping

published

Ripped 3rd day up. It has 3 different patches on it now. Can't handle a little bit of a breeze. Tears at the velcro then down the seam. The poles are good just the velcro and cheap cover. Have to take it down as soon as a breeze comes up or it will RIP somewhere else. Sad state of affairs Expected more for the price. Was purchased for a shelter for the kids tent and table in back yard. Not buy again.

Good bad and costly

published

I have purchased 2 of these shelters in the last 2 years and placed them over the pool so the family can swim throughout the day. The only problem is that they have only lasted 2/3 months as they have torn near the velcro tie downs on each occasion. The product idea is great but the quality of the shade is very poor. $200 for 2/3months - not very good. Improve the quality Coleman and I will try it again.

Dont waste your hard earned money

published

Have had the shelter for 1 month and it has disintegrated at the seams and is torn with touch from fingers. It has been up permanantly for that time. When coleman was contacted they stated it isnt meant as a permanant fixture. Do they not realise people camp for that period of time.
Always thought coleman where a reputable camping name!!!!!!!.

Torn shade within 6 months

published

Looks great, set up is simple enough. But the canopy tore apart within the first 6 months when a little bit of wind got to it. Bitterly disappointed as I really liked the look of his.

Shade Tore After 3 Days Use

published

Bought the event 14 at Easter 2015 never used till last week for kids party in backyard to come home to find still pegged to the ground but shade torn to crap. No trees or anything near it. Rang Colemans got told not their problem something must of happened to it. Hmm wind is all and they state on bag good in wind. Yet my China made 6 man tent not a mark and still standing.
Colemans products are expensive so I expected them to be good.
I'll never buy a Colemans product again. Thanks for backing your product Coleman!

Hi did you get answer on this?

rrobynasked

I have an event 14 and I love it. Not had any problems until last weekend camping under trees and I think a sharp twig or branch from above pierced the canopy. Not happy Jan, I can tell you. Does anyone know if you can patch them and if so what is the best thing to use.? Or how much does a replacement canopy cost? Cheers Robyn

Nor Coleman or BCF would confirm a replacement cost you can purchase a sail amount of Sail Tape from either yacht supplies or wind surfing kite surfing repair businesses But Robyn it sounds to me your cover is on its way out so don't spend to much and you are up against the same problem as all of us , the replacement cover is exactly the same , you would think Coleman would cop it on the chin and admit they era and supply proper uv protected covers but no they continue to deceive the public
