Coleman® WeatherTec™ System

Coleman has literally built a rain room in our factory to rain upon our tents and provide simulated weather conditions, from a light spring drizzle to a heavy downpour. The result of all this research is the Coleman® WeatherTec™ system that is designed to keep your tent cozy and dry regardless of what's going on outside.

Coleman® Tents

WeatherTec™ Features

Weather-Resistant Fabric

Coated polyester fabric combined with anti-wicking thread, webbing and zippers are designed to keep you dry.

Protected Seams

Inverted seams increase weather resistance by hiding needle holes inside the tent; also, rainfly seams, covers and doors keep the elements outside.

Wind-Strong Frame

Engineered to be a stronger, more wind-responsive frame by using redesigned poles and guy-out triangles to anchor tents and increase performance.
