Compact, stable and lightweight, this three person tent doesn’t compromise on internal space thanks to its tunnel design which offers a large space to weight ratio, providing extra storage and sleeping areas with comfortable head height for all three occupants. Tunnel designs are constructed for strength in adverse conditions, the 7001-T6 aluminium pole construction is not only wind-strong but also lightweight for the strength and stability it provides. Convenience is the key with this design, it features two wide-opening entrances for easier access, particularly with bulky kit and in adverse conditions. Additionally, the zip off groundsheet makes packing, cleaning and weight reduction easier and achievable.
Coleman combine high quality materials, experience and a quest to offer products that focus on your comfort, convenience and performance, wherever your adventure takes you.See all Product Description

The first time I erected this tent it was incredibly easy to and took less then 5 mins to have it standing and sturdy, then it was just a matter of pegging it out. This was by myself I hasten to add and I'm no expert. Next time round I'm looking for a sub 5 min time ;)
The tent came with the inner lining already attached, so after 10mins it was up, pegged out, waterproof and ready to go. Needless to say this can be taking out along with the ground sheet to help with cleaning or lightening the load. All the small details really made this tent stand out from the others I'd tried...like the oversized bag with compression straps (taking the tent down and packing it up was a piece of cake too), the square pegs that are almost impossible to bend, colour coded poles that only need securing at one end, the fluorescent guy-ropes etc.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone who needs a decent backpacking tent that also has a decent amount of room. There are lighter tents (this is 4kg max, weighed on the scales at work), but this is a nice bridge between complete backpacking tents, and something that you could happily camp in for a week or so. The large porch gives plenty of room for cooking if the elements aren't on your side...and I was able to easily keep my boots and two 70l bags in there without touching the sides.
Not much more to say really other than happy camping!
Took it for its first outing to Glastonbury 2010 and was great. The three seperate openings (back, front & side) allows air to flow through the tent which helped no end in the the hot weather. Proved very simple to put up and take down/pack away and lightweight. Zips proved good as previous tents have snagged on the first outing. The good size porch area allows 2 people to sit comfortably in case of rain.
Definately recommended for festivals.
Perfect for my needs and of high quality, cant wait to use it again, I was a camping virgin before this trip and the tent has helped me get hooked on camping.
5 star accomodation reasonably quick to erect 10 to 15 mins
I mainly use the tents for motorcycle camping so I need a tent to be roomy enough for my 6'3" frame and my bike gear, also the tent has to be waterproof so the 4000HH got my attention (most other manufacturers tents in this price range usually offer only 3000HH) as did the fact that it easily packs into a 40L side pannier with plenty of room to spare.
On it's first test over a long weekend in a wet Scotland it held up very well and was probably the easiest tent to erect that I have owned in the last twenty years. The single ended pole sleeves are a great idea with no need to run around the tent to make sure the pole end is properly located before pushing up the pole, once erected the tent is very stable even without any guy ropes being used, which is probably down to the fairly low profile of the fly sheet and strong but light alloy poles.
The zip off porch ground sheet is very useful in poor weather, although I have to say that the groundsheet does feel quite thin but this could be just down to the fact that it is a new type of material to me (I always use a PVC ground sheet as extra protection for the under side of the tent). The 3 doors are a good idea, especially as they are the parallel zip type rather than being one continuous curved zip (this enables you to use the door flap as a canopy in poor weather).
I would say this tent is ideal for one motorcyclist with gear for a long trip or, for 2 people for a long weekend. It is very simple to erect and pack away on your own (sub 5 minutes), especially as you can do both of these as one, or as fly sheet first, then inner tent.Read more ›
Can be pitched by one person (easier with two).
Used first time on wild camping trip to borrow dale area in the Lake District, camped at 500 metres in windy and very wet conditions.
The tent was brilliant, waterproof and highly wind resistant. Plenty of guy ropes for stability.Porch was large enough for three peoples gear.
One thing I would change is the porch groundsheet should be of bathtub design.We had to use stones to lift the higher side off the ground to stop the water running into the porch.
The main ground sheet (although thin enough to see through) was waterproof as we had a stream running underneath on the second night (yes it was that wet).
To recap - Great tent well worth the money, very prompt delivery.

Have several tents for different purposes. I love this one, up in minutes, down in minutes. Perfect for 2 people on the move. 3 would fit easily if you top to tail.Published on 4 Nov. 2011 by Betty
This is a very roomy tent for a fair price. I think however that its too heavy to be a trekking tent for hikers. But for bicycle enthusiasts its great value for money.Published on 8 Sept. 2011 by M. De Kock
