You'll enjoy an open and roomy living area with the unique ocagon shape and vertical walls of this tent.

Meahwhile, the strong frame is tested to withstand 35+ MPH winds. You'll get even more weather protection from an included rainfly that has vents built into it to increase air circulation to help you stay cool and comfortable.

still swimmingI can remember a time when Coleman as a brand made excellent products and when you saw the name you knew you were getting a quality product..not so much with this tent..I bought it about 5 years ago and the rain fly leaked so we exchanged the rain fly...the new one worked even worse than the previous..I had a waterfall in my tent..I've been in boy scouts for over 35 years so I know a good tent and have used many different brands and types of tents and this one by far is the worst and the plate that holds up the led light broke of the roof...far too costly a tent for the quality..I ended up buying a real tent

Stood up to harsh weather very wellWe took this out for the first time last weekend. Wasn’t sure what to expect after the reviews I read about the fan/light. And I’ve used my Colman Dome tents in bad weather and wind very successfully but was a little worried about the cabin style in wind and rain.
It set up easy and was nice and tight. Light and fan worked perfectly. Ran it for 2 nights on Salem battery’s and it was fine. It rained hard several times and it was dry. A little noisy but stayed dry. The second night we had 20-30mph winds, gusts up to 40. It was awesome. No problems. There was about 20 family’s with us at this scouting event. A bunch were in their cars in the morning because their tents came down. We were dry and tight in the morning..

We bought two of them and they both leakDoes anyone remember the time when Coleman made tents that didn't leak? They actually took the time to make the scenes ride and make sure the rain fly moved the water away from the tent and not just dripped on the screen Windows. They used to have other great Innovations like a framed D Door that was easy to open.
So now do I go through all the hassle of spraying these tents down with waterproofing and seam sealer or do I just return them ?
Maybe they should spend less time adding battery powered lights and fans inside and more time on the basics like sealing the tent.

Our Fancy Tents!The Prairie Breeze is great, as are the Tenaya and Jenny Lake tents - the straight sides provide more space and the feel of a regular bedroom.The high ceiling and big windows make it feel so spacious! We put down real carpets, an actual raised bed, side tables and a chair and presto - it's a guest house for the summer! Thank you Coleman - we get at least one a year so we now have a summer "village" of Fancy Tents!

Festival Ready!We used this for Okeechobee Music Festival and it was amazing. Quite easiest tent to set up possible. Higher recommend two ppl for this. The windows while the wind was blowing allowed maxium air flow, and closed during the night allowed maxium warmth.

Busted Door ZipperLove the large size of the tent. Can stand up anywhere inside comfortably. Nice flow of air through the tent. Made good use of the ceiling fan when there wasn't a breeze. The ceiling light is very convenient. Unfortunately, the zipper on the doorway is CHEAP. Only used the tent 6 times and then the zipper broke. Coleman: please replace that useless door zipper with a heavy duty zipper. I expected better quality from Coleman.

So far so GREAT!Just had our first time use. 4 days in the PNW and it was great! Over 4 days we had about 8 hours of PNW rain and it kept us very warm and very dry. Easy seat up, easy heat/ventilation regulation, great experience. We bought this for Glamping it did not disappoint! There were only two of us so I was worried about being able to keep the tent warm with all of the mesh on the roof. I slipped a couple of Mylar blankets between the rain fly and the tent in the 'bed room' and we were toasty all night. Lows = upper 40's. Second use of this tent will be in 5 weeks. Can't wait!
One last thing...shop around for pricing...Google Shopping helps. If I can buy a Coleman product form a near by store it is a Win-Win-Win. I get best price; Coleman gets to sell a product; local franchise/store makes a sale.

raining inside and outLooked online forever to find just the perfect tent. I was looking for roominess. First night it rained puddles...second night it rained more puddles. It wasn't coming in from the top or the seams. It was coming in from the fabric on the sides. Awful tent. Super expensive and leaking on first camping trip.
