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.

  • Awesome tent for the money
    My wife and I (plus Dalmation!) have now been camping in this tent three times in the Hill Country outside Austin in Texas. Twice we have experienced serious thunderstorms (and if you have been to Texas, you'll know that I am not exaggerating when I say they were bad) and have stayed dry both times. Also has excellent ventilation for the hot and humid weather here. Thoroughly recommend this tent for the money....more info
  • Nice tent
    I love the size of this tent. My husband and I have 24" camp air matresses so there is lots of room for our clothes and for getting dressed. Can easily fit 3 persons plus clothes.
    It is definately a warm weather tent. The whole top and 2 sides are open screen covered only by the rain fly. There is a back sip up window and one on the front "door".
    Only dissapointment is there are no loops or anything to hang something inside the tent....more info
  • Great tent for the money
    This is a review as well as some suggestions for the other reviewers.

    1) The rainfly does cover the windows if you align it / center it correctly.

    2) It has excellent vetntilation. The cealing does not have a closeable nylon covers inside the tent. This is because it is a 3 season tent. If you were able to close it to keep dust out you would find that the tent would be wet from condensation inside on the inside. So the cealing is mesh to let warm air and moisture excape. The rainfly keeps moisture out.

    If the cealing had zipper covering over the mesh,it would be a 4 season tent useable in winter.

    The tent sets up easy and served us well in our first weekend camoing in it. We did not get any real rain so I cant comment on its waterproof effectiveness. But it is gaurenteed waterproof.

    I love the headroom and the zippers opperated smoothly without a snag.

    I'm happy with it. Hope this is helpful.


    I used this tent 6 times this year already. One night it rained very hard. The tent was amazing as not one drop on either of us throught the entire storm. I honestly thought that we were going to get wet. This tent does what it says.

    Update 2009

    Ok it is now 2009, the rainfly ripped last year but Coleman sent me a new replacement at no charge. Suggestion, you don't need to tighten the 2 side rain fly cords so tight just enough so they are away from the tent. You should however tighten the 4 corner rain fly cords snug, this help keep the rainflt and tent stable and keep pressure off the 2 side rain fly cords where rips occurred. Follow this and you should not tear your rain fly. It rained all weekend while camping this weekend. 2 nights very hard and not a drop on us. third season and the tent still has no issues. I really like this tent.
    I would confidently buy another Coleman tent.

  • Terrible Tent
    This was our second of two attempts to buy a coleman tent. We were excited about the space of the 10 x 10 sundome. However, when we took it home and set it up, we discovered that the interior windows did not zip closed. This is a major problem because the rainfly does not completely cover the windows. Also, when we were setting up the tent, the rainfly was so thin that it ripped! We were so upset with this tent that we have decided not to purchase any more coleman tents in the future. We purchased a slightly more expensive eureka tent and we love it. The extra money is worth it for a higher quality tent....more info
  • not enough coverage
    I had one of these coleman 10x10. The fly does not cover all the mesh. I moved it around and around and still could see out of it. I did not have the tent out in rain or dust thankfully. I returned it to coleman. They were very nice about it and refunded purchase price with copy of the sales receipt. I'm still looking for another tent. I don't need all that room, and I definitely will look for better fly coverage. ...more info
  • Low end style 2-pole 'dome'
    I purchased this 10x10 tent used at a Columbia Goodwill store in Oak Grove, Oregon for $8.99. It has some weak money-saving points, such as just two poles to hold up quite a bit of fabric and the woven plastic 'tarp' floor (which gives a plastically feeling and sound when walking on it). There is a lot of tension in the fabric pole sleeves, one of which had a two foot tear (which I sewed shut). The fly is a bit small as it only covers the tent partially, but would protect the ceiling from an overhead rain, while still hitting the water-resistant tent walls and door. The fly is connected with, once installed, very taught, bungee cords at the corners. This tends to push down hard on the top of the tent and caused the walls to sag a bit. It is possible to open the bungee loop and adjust the length to relieve the pressure. Two of the corner grommets were blown out of the nylon straps, a result of the excessive stress in the four corners. This results in the poles pushing out and tent collapse, the grommets may need to be replaced at some point. My preference would be for a three pole design six wall tent in this size to better withstand wind and distribute lateral forces. The woven plastic floor add a lot to the weight of the tent is not a good fabric for cleaning. Washing this tent is not easy, however you may not need a tarp under this tent in wet weather unless you want the bottom of your tent to stay clean. The floor will fail to remain waterproof after a few years due to re-folding causing delamination of the 'tarp' surface. A real fabric floor is superior and, in any case, a regular tarp should be used to keep dirt off the bottom of the tent floor. The door has both fabric and netting single zipper panels. The rear window has a double zipper fabric cover (nice for adjusting the amount of ventilation) and a non-opening netting cover. Both fabric door and window covers close completely. The 20x20 inch ceiling vent does not close, but that has not been a problem for me....more info
  • Almost no wind coverage
    This tent is only good for very hot weather. If you are *only* going to use it in a very hot place, then this tent offers really great ventilation (it is almost like being outside), but if the weather is mild to a little chilly, the ventilation (or lack of wind protection) is a huge disadvantage. I am not talking about freezing snowy wheather (I know, it is a 3-seasoner, afterall...). I am talking about a mildly breezy night after a hot day in Santa Barbara! The fly does not go very low and the windows start too low (just a little above the level of our inflatable mattress) and are not closeable, so the breeze makes its way in... brrrrrr... Other than that, it is really nice and spacious and easy to assemble... but I think it is almost useless, except if you know you will only be using it for a hot Summer. (I am returning it!)...more info
