Great tent

published

Great solid tent compared to others in this price range. On the heavy side but probably because of the quality. Pegs are woeful so buy some new ones at the same time. Set up & take down is a breeze. Awning tends to hold water when it rains, telescopic awning poles would of solved this by simply lowering slightly to create run off slope. Just a thought for the next edition of instant up.

Purchased in February 2019 at Tentworld Online store for $470.00.

Terrible Warranty, broke first use

published

On a two week tour of Tassie, tent broke first night. String line broke and hole in the roof. Straight onto Coleman as it has a 12 months Warrenty. They said a foreign object must have damaged it. We were on the beach so that’s impossible.

Stay away from Coleman tents, they say they’re great which is why I bought it but when they needed to back it up they were no help at all.

Great tent, but heavy.

published

It’s a great tent, relatively easy to put up.
We used it once for a single night stay. The 3 entry doors are handy as you can choose which to open/close.
The room divider can be a trip hazard as the bottom bit has to stay (and not attached to the floor).
It’s a shame the tent is so heavy (30 kgs). The next size down, the 8P, is only 22 kgs. Would be great if the 10P has similar weight to the 8P model.

What's not in the video (UPDATED)

Granted the umbrella mechanism gets the tent up quickly (assuming you keep your fingers out of the way of moving parts) but the time benefit is lost with the amount of pegging down that has to be done to straighten and strengthen the tent frame. The tent's structural strength and space is less than the 12 year old Sportiva it was supposed to replace.
UPDATE (October 2018): Second major outing (11 days) and I think we may have reached a better understanding with respect to tent stability and need for external support ropes. One big plus that we discovered was the floor strength, which contributed to keeping us dry.


Great Tent

I wanted to use a stretcher on our last 3 week outback trip so needed the verticle sided tent. The Coleman Gold 4p tent fitted the bill very well. Used the tent for the 3 weeks including nights of drizzle and a few hours of very heavy rain without issue of leaks. Had days of 30+ degrees and days of 13 and the tent is well ventilated especially the ground level vents and easily controlled from inside the tent.

Don't like the pegs the tent comes with as campgrounds that are hard or rocky needs something more sturdy (carry extra pegs all the time no matter which tent I use)

Great experience using the tent and the different terrains and climates etc. Would buy it again if that helps

Super!

published

We are a family of 4 and wanted a low hassle tent and this is it.

The good.
The tent goes up and down very fast.
Nice quality.
Well thought out. Easy to put up internal lights, good windows and venting.

The bad.
The pegs are mediocre.

Easy to rate at 5 stars, especially considering value.

Two days ago I put this up for the first time. I am an unfit 60 ish male and it nearly killed me. There are about 200 pegs at least it felt like that, in the end my 6 yr old grandson was banging them in for me. I Thought I wanted a big tent but this was to big to heavy for us, just my wife and I. It is super strong and dry, in the middle of the night we had a massive storm, the rain bucketed down, we were nice and dry when it finally finished 6 hrs later. A fantastic tent but not for two. Will now buy a 6 person instant up gold dark, i am sure it will be more suitable. If you have a big family and help then this will be ok for you.
