Rated 3 out of 5 by Cindy from It leaked! I love the design of the tent. A front porch is great for our young boys to take off their shoes before going into tent. However, we had about 12 hrs of steady rain (which is a lot and unusual). Water leaked into all four corners of the tent. The rain drained down the fly and soaked those corners. We were stuffing all of our dirty clothes into the corners to soak up the water. Water also leaked in at the side seams and soaked the toddler blow up bed that pushed up against the side. I did try to deal the seams from the ibside of the tent before we went camping but evidently it wasnt good enough. I will seal it again before we go camping next time. @

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy camper from Sturdy and affordable I really like this tent. Its roomy inside and the front porch is great. It's a little tricky to put up alone. Next camping trip I'm going to try staking down the corners first. I went in the middle of October so it was a little chili. But i took my infrared heater and the tent stayed nice and warm. It does not have to electric port. But I put it thru the front porch and covered the cord. Since the front porch has no way of covering the screens i put a ez up over the porch. It didn't rain so I could not test it out. I plan on putting tarps on the sides of the ez up. I will take pictures and write another review next camping trip. Thank you

Rated 1 out of 5 by KayCee from Tent failed the first time out Bought the Evanston because we've had great experiences with Coleman products in the past and was sure I could trust the company. In particular, the WeatherTec feature of the tent appealed to me, because no one likes a wet sleeping bag! Unfortunately, the very first time I took the tent out, we had a Kansas thunderstorm blow through, and the tent failed miserably. The rainfly doesn't cover the side windows from wind-borne rain, and water just poured through the seams at the bottom of the windows. Also, again after just one night's use, the pole sleeve at the top of the tent is showing wear and splitting -- I seriously doubt it will survive a season. See photo. I called Coleman to request a refund, and was told the only thing they could offer is a $6 bottle of seam-sealer. Thoroughly disappointed in Coleman's product design and poor customer service. I'll be shopping another manufacturer in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 4whlr from nice design but materials are sub standard Tent holds up fairly well to a moderate rain (minor leaks) bit and tent poles began to breakdown during the initial assembly and scored/cut the tent pole sleeves during disassembly. Screened porch seems a good idea until rain when it becomes a muddy mess. Overall a nice idea but poor execution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Unkle Krampus from Awesome summer/fall tent This tent had great ventilation due to the back of the tent mainly being made of mesh. It does leave for little privacy if you leave the rain fly off. The front porch was a nice added feature as well for storing smaller items. The stakes were a bit weak for my liking, but that was easily fixed. Overall, I loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Car camper from Awesome tent! This tent is the best I’ve owned for large (car camping) tents. It was a warm weekend the first time I used it, and I pulled the rain flap back off the back half and it was stars and moon over head. The back wall is all screen and I loved it. we didn’t have bug issues, so for us the patio area was just a second layer of defense from pests. It’s not a large space in the front but I liked having it. I can’t speak for a rain event, but the other reviews were positive so I got this one. If you don’t have the rain flap on there isn’t a lot of privacy, but if that doesn’t matter then it’s a great tent. It’s 12x12 inside the cabin, sounds like a lot of space but fills up quick with cots. My advice is to measure out your stuff. It’s still a dome style so you need a gap on the side walls from a cot or air mat. I liked that since it was good weather I didn’t have to totally lock it down with all the tie downs and it was still sturdy. I felt if I was going to be in a storm I’d tighten it up and it would be good too. Great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Melilani from Perfect size for Scouting... We bought this for our son's Scouting camps... it is perfect. The screened porch keeps bugs out while enjoying the time outside, and the zippers close completely... and it was big enough for us to use a heater in cold weather. It was a great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amgroth97 from We use Coleman for their dependable products This purchase was to replace our last dome tent from Coleman which has been well used for over 20 years. The old tent is still good, and will probably make many more trips, we just wanted to upgrade to the newer model. Love this brand.
