Nicely doneI am in general pleased with this tent. First night out...a couple of summers ago, we had a deluge and had no leaks. However, this last Christmastime camping, a storm did cause a few drips. I had bought the rain fly, but hadn't used it, so put it on for the spring break camping. As expected, 8 people would be real cozy, though having doors at each end helps. I haven't had more than 4 people, and it's been quite spacious for that, even with 3 cots. Note that for full structural integrity in a strong wind, the guy lines are definitely needed. It is self-standing, but is wobbly in the wind without those.

LOVE IT...Now we have room!!We LOVE the new 8-person tent we bought really just for the 2 of us, but wanted to be able to fit our Queen Air bed in there with a couple of chairs and a table and be able to stand up. It does all that! Worked out great!
Only reason I marked it down 1 star is that you have to purchase the rainfly seperately which I think should be included. Living and camping in Virginia,you have to be PREPARED for RAIN!!! Also, don't like that you basically have to use 2 hands to zip and unzip the door cuz there is nothing to anchor it too. Poor design especially compared to our old Coleman tent.

Windows DO NOT fully zipThese are really great tents. The recent advertising pictures you will find show the OLD superior version of this tent. (instant 8) the new version does not have the small triangular vent flaps at the roof center. The new tent (2020 version) windows, the two largest windows, are not fully zipped up. The sides of the window zip but the top is open. Rain will not come in at all but if you are planning to use in a dusty situation you really want the windows to fully zip. This is still a great tent, sturdy and easy to set up on a relatively flat surface. The support legs and fabric cut tolerances are best for a flat ground setup.

Leaking severelyThis tent is awesome. Love mostly everything about it except for the leaking through the front door. I’ve taken it camping twice since opening the box last week and each time I went it was raining lightly all through the day and night. Both times I woke up to wet items on the floor of the tent. I’m very disappointed and frustrated to say the least. Nothing worse then being 3 hours from civilization and all of your clothes are soaking wet. I thought the first incident was my fault for maybe not closing the door all the way, turns out it was 100% the tents fault. I wouldn’t recommend this tent for camping in the rain.

A good luxury size shelter.I have been using my instant tent for 4 years now. 3 to 4 times a year for a week each time. As described it goes up in an instant. The floor and body are solid. The tent seals up tight or nearly entirely vents also. Great in hot and cold weather. Plenty of room for a queen sized bed table and chair when being used as extra space for guests. Or queen air bed and cots when camping. Rain will cascade right on to the door making it impossible to go in and out without getting tent and self entirely soaked so you need to buy the available fly and incorporate a tarp or canopy system. I raised my point Loma to cover 1/2 of the tent and have a covered porch. Fantastic combo.

Not a happy camper!This is my first time camping in this tent and probably my last. The poles would not extend to full length and lock. It took 2 strong men to finally extend enough to make it work. 3 of the top extension poles had this problem. The poles were assembled backwards. My camping trip is over tomorrow and I am dreading breaking it down. I will comment on how that works out. I am disappointed that Coleman sold such faulty tent. I will be contacting customer service when I return home. I hear others did not have much luck with them. Coleman should stand by their products if they want to have loyal , happy customers.

Great at first...We’ve had this tent for a little over 2 years and have used 6-8 times. This was a replacement tent for one that was purchased in 2017 and replaced under warranty. Our current tent had 2 corner roof poles go bad. The clips to lock them into place broke so the tent was very unstable and caused the tent to leak when it rained. (The tent had never leaked in the past and handled rain very well in the past.)
The last 2 days I have been trying to find the replacement part, but the part has been discontinued and no one carries it. (Part # 5010000829) The only suggestion Coleman’s customer service could offer was trying to replace it with a side roof pole which wasn’t close to being the same size. Now I’m stuck buying a new tent instead of spending $10-15 on replacement parts.

Two of the poles broke after just 2 usesI only got the chance to use this tent 2 times. The third time I took it camping, 2 of the poles broke apart, making the tent useless..While putting it up, suddenly two of the plastic pole joints just broke and snapped apart, bending the bolts in the process. It cost way too much money to only have it last for 2 camping trips, which were only 3 days each.. There was no way to fold the tent back up to put back in the bag, so it was carted off by state park employees, since there was no way for me to get it back home in the mangled mess it became trying to "fix' it. I had to borrow a tent from someone else for my 5 day camping trip. I contacted coleman and was offered 25% off my next purchase plus free shipping, which is what they are offering EVERYONE that orders from their website. Obviously, they do not stand behind their products. My replacement tent will NOT be a coleman!!!!
