Coleman 6 Person Instant Tent

Coleman 6 Person Instant Tent


The Coleman 6 Person Instant Tent would have to be the easiest tent to put up. It literally requires that you  unfold it, extend the legs and you are done. This is about as instant as it gets and it takes about a minute. The poles are actually attached to the tent, making it an innovative one piece design. The WeatherTec System ensures complete waterproofing so there is no need to have a rain fly. There’s plenty of room inside too and if you are over not being able to stand up inside, you’ll be pleased to hear that the centre height is 6 feet.
