Additional Information

Set up camp in a compact, yet spacious tent with the Coleman® Evanston™ 8-Person Tent. An extended door awning creates a dry space to store gear and enter the tent. If it rains, the WeatherTec™ system with its patented welded floors and inverted seams will help you stay dry. Additionally, window awnings and the included rainfly help to keep the water out. Setup is simple with snag-free, continuous pole sleeves and the patented pin-and-ring system. A hinged door makes for easy comings and goings. Inside, there's enough room to stretch out on two queen-sized airbeds, and storage pockets help to keep small items organized. When it's time to head home, the tent easily packs up into an expandable carry bag with a rip strip until you're off on your next adventure.

Evanston™ 8-Person Tent is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! We had to purchase a new tent after our 20 year old tent just couldn't hold up any more. This tent was our choice. Fortunately for us, it lived up to its description. The rain started early on our weekend and lasted most of the weekend. Our tent stayed dry inside and we were quite comfortable playing cards and listening to the rain. We were even hit with some storms and the tent stood up to the wind. The "porch" was perfect for keeping our shoes out of the tent. When the rain started, we kept tennis shoes in tent, but flip flops outside for quick trips. Because the porch was screened, it did get water in it, but that is to be expected. Set up and take down was easy. Thanks, Coleman!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice tent We love the hinged door it's more like a cabin than a tent. There was definitely a learning curve setting it up, the directions are sparse. All in all we are very happy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very roomy! I bought this tent a few years ago when it was on sale. It has some great features that I love, like the hinged door! It's so convenient! I also love the color of it, green and white. Our last tent was black and red - very dark and gloomy if rainy weather forces you inside. It's very large, 12' x 12', and there is lots of room for the 4 of us and our gear when we are car camping. We can easily stand up in the middle of the tent, which is nice when you are changing clothes. The downside is that it's a bit difficult and time consuming to set up. Lots of different tent poles to support it all, and threading them all through the sleeves is hard. I wish they had clips instead of the sleeves, it would make set up so much faster and easier. Also, there are a couple dozen stakes and guylines because a tent this size has a lot of surface area and would blow away otherwise. It's just time consuming to set up and take down. Quality is fine, it's what you would expect of Coleman tents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! I purchased the exact same tent after our original one had had a Bear visit it and left additional exits! I love the D Door and the way the rain fly actually keeps the rain OUT! If I ever need to purchase another tent...well it would be the same one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable tent! I have a son that is Autistic and loves "to camp". This tent goes up every fall in our driveway and stays there thru the spring. It is up in the sun, the wind, the rain, and once even in the snow. The inside stayed dry and the poles stood up to the wind and three inches of snow! The only reason we bought a new one was that the rainfly did eventually, after years of use, start to tear, and wasn't available to order separately. We look forward to many more "camping trips".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and affordable This tent has lasted me 8 years of all kinds of camping. I was able to get it on a sale and it’s been through a lot. We came in all seasons and use a buddy heater in the winter. It’s been great but has been getting some wear lately so I had to update it. I am now trying out an instant tent. I could set this tent up by myself in about 10 mins 5 if someone helped me. The overhang was great when it rained. The chairs and belongings stayed dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable and spacious While we haven't taken the tent out for a camping trip just yet, we have set it up a few times for the kids. It's very easy to put up but you'll definitely need some assistance. The inside is pretty roomy. You can fit 2 queen air mattresses if needed. I wish I opted for one with a screened porch, but we think this will work just fine for our needs. The material also seems quite durable, which is common with Coleman tents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tent on the campsite! My other half ordered this and I was a little nervous as it was on the 'budget' priced end of tents. We downsized to the Evanston 8 (Screened Porch) as our previous tent was too large for our needs and lacked the porch area to remove wet boots etc. Upon arrival at 9pm we had lost all day light and had to set up in the dark. Even so, in 15 minutes I had the tent up with the other half holding her phone as a light source. It was surprisingly easy. We had a warm first night which was unexpected as we thought the open rear vent would be super cooling. It did cool us off but not to the extent that we had to layer up to sleep comfortably. On the 2nd night it rained heavily with a thunderstorm close by. The tent held perfectly and not a drop of water penetrated into the main room. We knew the porch may get wet as the doors were only screened so we moved whatever we could inside and still had plenty of room. On the 3rd night another thunderstorm! This time it was wild and lasted at least 4 hours. I was dreading the following day as we were leaving and trying to dry out the inside and outside was not a task I was looking forward to.... The following morning, we woke up bone dry! I peered out from the screened porch to witness every other tent, and some RVs, drying out their sleeping bags and camping gear that had been soaked. Not us! Our trusty tent kept us and our gear dry, allowing us to towel wipe the fly sheet, air dry the tent and pack up our gear in the dry haven that was the Evanston 8 Screened. If I had a bone to pick it would be to have a fly layer to put over the front screened doors but other than that it's a great all rounder, easy to pitch, easy to repack and a joy to spend time in. I would definitely buy and recommend to anyone!
