Hooligan™ 3-Person Backpacking Tent
Hooligan™ 3-Person Backpacking Tent is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disapointed Received the tent as a Christmas gift last year and was very excited as my old Coleman 2 man tent of 10+ years was worn out. Test setup of the tent at home, while setting up, the main tent door zipper broke (pulled apart), fixed it and thought all was good. Went out to Anza Borrego and when setting it up zipper failed again, but was unable to fix it. Later in the evening as the winds came up 10-15mph with gusts maybe 30mph snapped one of the main poles... only 3 days left in the desert and the next night the other pole snapped. Extremely disappointed in the tent. Quality has gone away. 1 trip and I'm just going to trash the tent and go elsewhere for a new one

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for... I bought this a couple of years ago. The Pros: It was inexpensive and it was great while it lasted. It's roomy and the bathtub design definitely helps to keep it dry. The Cons: On a recent trip, the zipper developed a gap and then completely failed. Had to try to use the rain fly to keep the mosquitos out. The next night, one of the corner rings completely came off. As the limited 1 year warranty expired, the whole thing went in the trash. It was good while it lasted, but you get what you pay for (and sometimes you pay for what you get). Spend the extra $ and purchase a tent that will last - and that has a lifetime warranty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Affordable but not desert ready This was spacious enough but those little fire ants are brutal and could get through the bottom of the tent. Also it holds up to about 40 mph gusts but higher than that on a flat plain did snap one pole. So great for light camping but not so much for a week and a half in the desert. But it still was usable for the whole time with all these mishaps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the money, mine is definitely a 5 star tent. A year ago, I became a new assistant scoutmaster for our local Boyscout troop, I needed to get a smaller, solo tent for our numerous scout trips, one per month. Scouts are never allowed to share a tent or be alone with a leader. My larger family tents would not make sense to take backpacking. I found this tent on sale an our local Coleman outlet store. I like a roomy tent, so I chose the 3 man. It is great for one or two scout leaders. I love the entrance through the vestibule. That way when it is raining, none gets in the tent itself when you go in and out. It has stood up to numerous storms and rain. It almost always rains at least once during our scout trips. Tent has remained totally dry. Gear stored in vestibule stays dry too. I have had 2 men and backpacks stay in this tent and we had plenty of room thanks to the large vestibule. Everything still works normally after one year of use. No broken zippers or poles and no torn seams. Overall, I am very pleased with this tent and I have a lot of tenting experience. I only gave it 4 stars because it is a little heavy to be called a backpacking tent and the poles are fiberglass. The only thing that I do not like is trying to get the poles out of the continuous sleeves when it is time to break camp. I would much prefer to have clips for over the poles rather than the full sleeve. The sleeve is durable however. It takes me 10 - 15 minutes for full set up by myself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Affordable but not so durable. I used this for a 4 day music festival camping trip. I've set up many tents but this one was a little tricky. The main tent was great but we had some trouble trying to figure out the rainfly and vent area up top. I imagine the vestibule would be great for rainy weather but became more of a pain for us as you had to duck so low in order to enter and exit the tent. We didn't have any issues with the poles but the first time we used it the main zipper devolved a gap. It continued to get worse over the weekend and by the end of the trip the main zipper for the door was unuseable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from #1 Tent for Our Troop The Coleman Hooligan 3-person tent is the ONLY tent we buy for our Boy Scout Troop. For years now we have joked that this is the Official Troop Tent. We love how the rain fly goes all the way to the ground and that there is a vestibule at the front (a "front porch" we call it) to put your wet/dirty boots and gear before going into the tent. Just a great tent all around, even Boy Scouts can't destroy these things,we only need to replace every few years and we go camping every month.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great tent holds up to the elements, with defects Overall I like this tent. It got tested immediately on my first camping trip when we were slammed with a sudden thunderstorm which pelted it with torrential rains and 40 mph gusts. The tent held up and was dry as a bone. Very happy with that. What I was not so happy with were the few "defects" that I found immediately out of the bag. First, one of the zippers came disconnected from the track. Not a huge deal, I still have one good one. Second, on my third camping trip the pole broke. I'm in the middle of sending in a warranty request, but the part where the metal coupling meets the composite material broke. It appeared crooked to start with but I thought maybe that was intentional. Doesn't seem so. The vestibule makes setup tricky. Yes 10 minutes is possible, but it takes practice. I was a bit confused by the instructions that state there are sleeves to guide the poles. For the two main poles over the dome, yes. For the pole that supports the vestibule, no. It makes setting up the vestibule a bit tricky. That said, I love the vestibule. On a trip where it rained for an entire day my vestibule area was still dry which was helpful. Spacious and durable, just a little weird and buggy and defective. And I would never take this back packing, it's much too heavy to pack over long distances. Maybe the 2 person would be better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tent I used this tent for low 40s temperatures next to a lake. Condensation inside and light rain outside. Despite that, dry inside! Be sure to stake the rainfly down so the mesh does not touch the rainfly-that will allow the condensation to run off outside the tent. The vestibule is amazing! There is not much of a weight or size difference between the 2 and three person hooligan, so just get the 3 person.
