Affordable and lots of spaceThis tent offers lots of room for a family of 4 and a dog plus gear. Putting it up is a lot. Even after you get good at it. It's a pain to figure out which pole is which. Take down and getting it back into the bag is a pain too. I have always had to repack it at home in the back yard for storage. The swing door is a good concept but it never closes completely. The ground is never 100% flat and that makes a big difference. There is no window on the back. Even with all the windows open this tent gets hot. We found it's best not to use in the summer. This tent was stolen out of the garage recently and I'm looking for a replacement with the same space but better air flow and easier set up and take down.

Great tent, not so easy to follow instructionsSo, the tent is GREAT! The instructions are not. Coleman color coded the tent poles, which would be helpful except they didn’t tell you what the colors mean. The instructions were mislabeled and I was confused about which pole to use. I happened to glance at the Spanish sheet to see if it was labeled differently, and it was! I don’t speak Spanish, but using the Spanish instructions were more helpful than the English.
The tent itself is very good. I don’t care much for the Velcro used on the hinged door. After one day of use, the Velcro was coming off. Also, the door wouldn’t always latch to the Velcro easily. Other than that, I love the hinged door and the tent overall

Spacious and "homey"We've used this tent as our home away from home at least two dozen times or so and it has been a blessing each time. Set-up is quick and easy. The "D" door is a wish come true! It eliminates the cumbersome zipper when you need to come and go frequently, but still keeps the bugs out, then just zip it closed when you are ready to settle in. The high ceiling is a must for my husband who is 6 foot tall and still has plenty of room to spare. All in all this has been one of our favorite Coleman purchases so far. Price, quality and ease of use are all rolled into one great product. Keep up the great work Coleman!

Great TentI have used this tent for 2 seasons now - I also have the 4 person fast pitch tent. I use this one, the Montana when there will be more of us in the tent. I typically have 4 adults and 2 children in this. 2 Queen sized mattress fit perfectly with room to spare for a few sleeping bags for kids.

Nice and roomy, but leaks badly in the rainWe loved the spaciousness of this tent and it was easy to set up. But it's only meant for dry weather camping. Their "Weathertec Stay Dry Guarantee" as stated on the packaging is completely false. In the two times we were rained on, once within the first year we owned it, the rain dripped right through the fabric. Sure the bottom is waterproof, but that doesn't matter if rain is dripping directly on your face and pooling up in the bottom of the tent. We even tried using the Coleman brand waterproofing spray after the first incident and it STILL leaked on us, and it wasn't even raining very hard that time!!! When I contacted Coleman they basically said 'out of warranty, oh well' so they clearly don't stand by their products for very long. Once a long time Coleman customer, now a never again.

Not very durable. Zippers and poles failed8 or so uses the zippers and the door pole failed. After being a lifelong avid Coleman user (passed down from my father) i have collected many Coleman products some of which are over 30 years old. I have never experienced an issue with any one of these products until i purchased this tent. On the first use the carbon pole in the door broke on the first day of my camping trip. I used tape to fix the issue. Use number 2 another piece of carbon in that pole broke so i used more tape to fix it. Use number 8 (this past weekend) the zipper on the door failed completely. I gave Coleman plenty of opportunity to make this failure right in my eyes (replace the tent or repair the zipper) but because i am out of warranty the best they were willing to do is a 25% discount on the purchase of a new tent via the Coleman website...... I'm not sure that I would want to spend any more money on another tent with the same quality??

Horrible and defectiveI purchased this tent to be able to accommodate my large family. I have used it 3 times now and each time something happens. The first use, one of the tent poles snapped and the weather was not even bad. The second time, its rained and with all straps tied down, the inside of the tent still got wet including our clothes and beds. The third time, the bottom of the tent rippled where it is staked down because of wind. Because of the damage, I will not be able to use the tent again and honestly dont think I would. I am terribly disappointed that a product like this would come from coleman.

after 2 years, tent is STILL in PERFECT condition!So far, this tent has lasted 5 trips including camping 3 days in windy Wyoming, and a severe thunderstorm in Colorado. Here's what we've done that's managed to keep our Montana 8 like new: (1) always stake down the tent and use the rainfly (2) put a ground tarp under tent (3) Relax, and take your time with set up/take down (ignore Coleman's silly claim of "15 minutes") and expect at least 30 minutes minimum (4) When threading poles through slots, be patient and gentle (not rough or in a hurry) . Use your hand to gently feed tent material over pole as you inch pole through, and then PULL (not push) the pole out the other end (5) don't stake guylines with excessive tension (6) don't be forceful with zippers (if any of your staked guylines put noticeable tension near seams, OR zippers are reluctant to zip: push on tent wall, or pull tent fabric in the same direction you plan to move zipper, all the while keeping an eye on tent fabric so you don't blindly cause a snag)... These 6 tips have literally kept our tent looking like new, and performing like a champ. Bottom Line: be good to this tent and it will be good to you!
