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 2 out of 5 by Seth2020 from It works Had this tent a while seems to have lots of failures with minimal use. Zippers failed and loose teeth, pole split, rip stop fabric ripped, leaks, screen tears, and tent steaks bent on first use. If your not going to a heavily groomed camp ground on a perfect day this shouldn’t be your first choice. Coleman use to be my go to but I am starting to question the quality of their products. Really sad since this was a wedding gift from my wife.

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 1 out of 5 by Nevans from Pole pouches ripped on 2nd use. Rain floods porch. Good value for a dry desert campout. However, after the second use, the pouches for the tent poles already ripped. Wear was visible and caused by rubbing of the rain fly on the pouches. Not a good design - too thin.

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 3 out of 5 by Allie from Alright, but you gotta weigh the pros and cons.... Bought this tent for the bigger space (because I "Partially Glamp") I can put it up by myself (takes about 25 mins of cussing, I expected that), and the screened porch, so I wouldn't have to deal with a canopy anymore. The pack says "Keeps you dry, guaranteed". Well, that's only if you are in the main part of the tent, not the porch. The way the screened part juts out uncovered allows rain. I found that out the hard way - costed me a day at the state park after I had a ton of water in the porch, that slowly made it's way into the main part. I had a tarp, but it wasn't big enough. If it rains in the future, I'm pulling in the porch and bringing a bigger tarp. I'll keep it, just gotta deal with it. I can't do instant tents because they are too heavy, so this was my tent. Like the room, though. The porch is really nice, if it's not raining.
