Selecting a Tent
Fortunately, there are all kinds of tents for weekend car campers, Everest expeditions, and everything in-between. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Expect the Worst
In general, it's wise to choose a tent that's designed to withstand the worst possible conditions you think you'll face. For instance, if you're a summer car camper in a region where weather is predictable, an inexpensive family or all purpose tent will likely do the trick--especially if a vehicle is nearby and you can make a mad dash for safety when bad weather swoops in! If you're a backpacker, alpine climber or bike explorer, or if you like to car camp in all seasons, you'll want to take something designed to handle more adversity.

Three- and Four-Season Tents
For summer, early fall and late spring outings, choose a three-season tent. At minimum, a quality three season tent will have lightweight aluminum poles, a reinforced floor, durable stitching, and a quality rain-fly. Some three-season tents offer more open-air netting and are more specifically designed for summer backpacking and other activities. Many premium tents will feature pre-sealed, taped seams and a silicone-impregnated rain-fly for enhanced waterproofness.

For winter camping or alpine travel, go with a four season model. Because they typically feature more durable fabric coatings, as well as more poles, four-season tents are designed to handle heavy snowfall and high winds without collapsing. Of course, four-season tents exact a weight penalty of about 10 to 20 percent in trade for their strength and durability. They also tend to be more expensive.

Domes, Tunnels and Sacks
Tents are broadly categorized into two types, freestanding, which can stand up on their own, and those that must be staked down in order to stand upright. Freestanding tents often incorporate a dome-shaped design, and most four-season tents are constructed this way because a dome leaves no flat spots on the outer surface where snow can collect. Domes are also inherently stronger than any other design. Meanwhile, many three-season models employ a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, but they require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric, and typically have a rectangular floor-plan that offers less storage space than a dome configuration. Many one and two-person tents are not freestanding, but they make up for it by being more lightweight. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set up than a dome.

Size Matters
Ask yourself how many people you'd like to fit in your fabric hotel now and in the future. For soloists and minimalists, check out one-person tents. If you're a mega-minimalist, or if you have your eye on doing some big wall climbs, a waterproof-breathable bivy sack is the ticket. Some bivy sacks feature poles and stake points to give you a little more breathing room. Also, if you don't need bug protection and you want to save weight, check out open-air shelters.

Families who plan on car camping in good weather can choose from a wide range of jumbo-sized tents that will accommodate all your little ones with room to spare. A wide range of capacities is also available for three- and four-season backpacking and expedition tents. Remember, though, the bigger the tent you buy, the heavier it will be, although it's easy to break up the tent components among several people in your group. It's also helpful to compare the volume and floor-space measurements of models you're considering.

Customer Reviews:

  • I love this tent.....
    This is a great tent that you can walk around in, about 7ft in the middle 5 ft on the sides. It is a heavy/solid family car camping tent. Just keep in mind that you are sacrificing the portability and speed of setup with dome tents for the size of this one....more info
  • Thanks all for all your reviews
    Thanks all for all your reviews. I just bought this tent because you in the past you have rated it and sent your reviews in for the past three years. Amazon did not allow me to give it a rating other than 5 before I posted it. So Five it is, before I have received it. I have noticed this kind of tent other than dome tents will not withstand any wind force and water will come in at 30mph or less. I couldn't expect more from any other tent for the price I am paying. I did buy this tent on the warnings it is not a 3 or 4 season tent and Amazon gave me plenty information to let me know what I was buying. I did look at your many comments about the SpringBar tent and WOW plan to spend 3 times as much. I am only going to use this tent 6 weeks a year and the price is right. I have owned two dome style tents in the past (there is no room to move other than the middle) and the rain has been a major problem and if you touch the seems watch out it will pore in. I hope Coleman has learned they have designed quite a tent and will make it better. Dome tents really do not provide the space needed for four to six plus suit cases and equipment every one likes lots of room in their tent. People want a little home away from home. There is a price to pay on wind and rain to get out of a dome tent.

    Thanks RD Varin...more info
  • Tent Disaster
    We got this tent to replace a very old and leaky tent since we now have a son who is 3. We wanted to ensure a dry and happy camping experience with him so we selected this tent. I think the nicest thing we can say about this is Amazon expedited its return efficiently.
    It appears this made-in-china tent did not pass through the waterproofing process. We had 2 hours of very light, almost mist-like rain. All 4 corners leaked and when I entered the tent, water was coming straight through the walls and running to the floor-I honestly have never seen such a poor product and we are disappointed that Coleman quality has sunk so low. We will NOT buy another Coleman tent. My wife now is very reluctant to go camping and my son doesn't understand why camping beds are like sponges......more info
  • Good value for money
    My family and I are avid campers who needed a new tent to replace our well-used but now leaky dome tents. Our son is a member of a very active scout troop that spends a lot of time with camps. After two semi-soggy outings we decided to purchase a new home away from home that would keep us dry and provide a roomy abode for just playing cards. After doing some research we came across this beauty that could easily accommodate two queen sized air mattresses with room to spare (the tent is rated to sleep 7 and can without an issue!). On our first outing with the new tent we arrived well after dark. We found that the pieces were very intuitive - all color coded - making the setup a breeze with two people. Yes, setting this huge tent up alone would be a chore! Nonetheless, the tent was up within 15 minutes providing our family with cavernous comfort. The 'door' was a real bonus and was big enough to accommodate a single width queen air mattress. The smarter choice would be to employ the extension cord vents and inflate the mattresses inside the tent. Though it did not down pour, we were blessed with intermittent rains through the weekend. The WeatherMaster branding has lived up to its name making the money spent well worth it!...more info
  • excellent tent - highly recommended by this chiropractor! (and my guy Mike)
    My guy Mike has a back problem, which led us to consider this cabin-door style tent, so that Mike wouldn't need to stoop-n-crawl entering and exiting the tent. On that score alone, this tent would get 2 thumbs up from both me and Mike -- the cabin door makes tent camping so easy, allowing us to stand fully upright while taking gear (and us) in and out of the tent, it is absolutely great. And I've done a LOT of camping over the years, so I'm speaking from a lifetime of experience with various tents -- the design of this tent is perfect - the cabin door, the separate "front room" with enough space to set up a small table and chairs, and the fullscreened ceiling panels (during the day, roll back the rainfly, open the ample screened windows and doors, and the tent is airy and comfortable enough to spend the entire day in). And I love the innovative pole clips that let us easily setup the tent and take it down (with Mike's bad back, we're careful that he doesn't twist or stoop over needlessly, and it's very easy for me to singlehandedly manage the tent setup and takedown myself, especially if Mike's back is bothering him). I absolutely love this tent, I give it 5 stars, two thumbs up, and kudos to the maker - thanks, this is a perfect tent for us!...more info
  • Great Coleman product
    We bought this tent as an upgrade from our smaller Coleman. Sets up with ease and I had it done in about 1/2 hour by myself. We used it for 4 days without incident. On our last night it poured and in the morning we found a little water on the floor. Enought to wet a tea towel but not enough to wring out.I am not sure I like the screened roof because the heat just blows right out. I found that it I throw somethnig over top the tent to weight down the fly then the heat holds much better. I will be using this tent well into December. We used one side for sleeping and the other for our gear, its great to have this much room while camping....more info
  • Great Tent!
    I love my new Coleman tent. I have always had Coleman tents and was looking forward to using this new cabin tent, as I bought it during the winter and this past weekend was our first time using it. It went up easy and kept us completely dry during a massive rain & wind storm. I love all the openness of the tent, lots of windows, doors, and the ceiling also. The only thing was that it said it only takes 3 poles, which is true in a round-about way...the three poles that are used to put up the tent each consist of three poles before you can use them to put up the really there are more than three poles....more info
  • Best tent I've owned
    I have been a part of a medieval recreation society for five years now and go camping seven months out of the year, almost every weekend. I've camped in very high wind storms, torrential rain, super hot weather and this tent has seen me through it all! I don't use the stakes it comes with, although they are just fine for every day, run of the mill, camping, but not for what I do - I use what looks like huge nails I got from home depot... They are more sturdy and have a deeper bite to the ground - and with those I've had no issues with wind at all. I lost this tent to a mildew issue due to gross negligence of a friend who didn't dry it out properly two weekends in a row (I'd left it "damp" before in those five years and had no issues) and I was devastated when I had to get rid of it. At that time Coleman was no longer making it - I was estactic when I saw this available on amazon finally!! It's like being reunited with an old friend! I highly recommend this tent....more info
  • coleman cabin tent - excellent
    Did quite a bit of searching for the perfect family camping tent. Finally decided on this one because of the straight walls and nice height. The tent more than meets my expectations. Although it is much easier if two people set up the tent, it is actually easier to set up than many dome tents. Warning: you must use the tie downs on the end to keep the angled poles from collapsing to the center. Very high side wraps keep ground water out (in Florida that's a must). The only problem I have is that the carry strap on the bag pulled out on the second lift. You'll likely have to rig a carry strap, however, this tent is for "car camping" which means you wouldn't want to carry it far anyway.

    My recommendation: get one and enjoy the good life!...more info
  • Love the height of Cabin Tent & easy to set up
    I looked all over the internet to find a tent that had high ceilings since I am tall. I also wanted a tent that was easy to set up. I am not disappointed at all and would buy the same tent again. It takes around 20-30 minutes to set up and very easy step by step instructions. The Coleman has a very good warranty. Amazon offers at the best price because I spent alot of time on computer comparing prices. ...more info
  • Next best thing to a Springbar
    I am relatively new to camping and searched for quite some time to find a tent that would house myself and two dogs (both med sized). I wanted head room because I didn't want to walk around ape like. I wanted the walls to be cabin style for more area space and I wanted to be able to set it up myself. After looking at a plethora of tents and comparing reviews, it came down to Springbar and Coleman. As I'm new to camping, I didn't want to spend the money on Springbar (almost four times the cost) until I was sure I'd be out there often enough to justify the purchase. So, I went with Coleman. I chose the American Heritage Weathermaster 9x12 for the reasons already stated and have to say, I couldn't be happier with my decision.

    I am a 5'8", 42 year old, 130 lb woman and was able to do a practice set up of the tent, alone, in approximately a little under an hour (take into consideration this is the very first tent I've ever set up). I estimate set up, next time, will be about half that or less. About 15 minutes to break it all down. Directions are extremely easy to follow with one minor exception...there are orange loops at the top of each corner of the tent, in which, the side poles should slide through. This wasn't implied in the directions. I think they just assumed one would know this. Also, if you're shorter than I am, chances are you'll need a step stool to insert side poles into roof poles but you'd still be able to set the tent up yourself.

    I seam sealed the tent immediately after initial set up on a Sunday afternoon, but didn't do the fly. Sunday night, we got rain and it rained every day for the next three days varying from light drizzle to continual torrential down pour. We ended up with a total accumulation of 3 inches of rain with winds reaching 20 knots (approximately 10 to 12 mph). Tent stood strong and didn't budge but it did get an extremely small amount of water in it (two tiny puddles when mopped up and squeezed out, filled a coffee cup). I think the only reason it came in, was because I had stretched the tent a little to tautly on one side which caused the seems to stretch a little bit. The rain fly worked perfectly!! Not a single iota of water dripped from it into the tent.

    The only cons that I can see are the tent stakes that come with the tent. They're short and made of plastic. I don't see them doing much good at all in strong winds. I would highly recommend purchasing different stakes. I used sixteen 12" steel stakes that I purchased separately (10 for the floor of the tent and the other 6 for guying the fly and long ends of tent).

    Other than that, the windows on each end are large and airy, there are half moon windows for additional ventilation on the floor, the 7' ceiling offers beautiful views of the star filled sky when the fly isn't in use, the front door has a hinge and opens outward like a regular door which is a great advantage and the tub style floor is higher than almost all other tents I've looked at. There's lots of room inside and many pockets for storage with a second door (no hinge) in the back of the tent. The tent and fly along with the floor mats and room divider fit in one bag and the poles and stakes fit in another for easy transport. Both bags are rather light for carrying as well. I feel safe in this tent because it was sturdy and protected me in, what I feel like, was pretty inclement weather. I would highly recommend this tent and am looking forward to many excursions in it....more info
