Coleman Sundome 2 Tent Review

From the netting to the poles to the rainfly, many of the main components of this tent are not built to last. For example, the string that connects the pole sections together broke on our first pitch. Long story short, if you do decide to go with the Sundome, just be sure to have coleman ice chest a pole patch kit available. With less space than other 4-person tents, it could be a little cramped. We think if you are going camping for the first time or even if not and are looking for that perfect camping tent that will last for almost all your outdoor trips this is it.

The 4 Person Dome Tent is designed as more of a summer tent. If there was some light drizzle, then you’d stay dry but if you got any decent sort of rain, then you’d most likely get wet inside. I mentioned earlier that there were only two fiberglass poles for this tent, the old tent used four plus small ones for the rain flap.

They are thicker than poles designed for backpacking which are usually around 8.5mm. This means any camping gear or equipment has to be stored inside the main body of the tent, cutting down on space for campers to sleep. Weighing in at 16 pounds 10 ounces, the Sundome 6 is easy to haul from the car to the campsite and store when not in use. For carrying, the included rectangular bag for the Sundome is simple in nature, but the full-length zipper and well-placed handles get the job done. We would have loved to see internal dividers like those found on the REI Kingdom bags, but those likely would have raised the price of the Coleman. Does the Sundome 4 tent have internal storage pockets or a gear loft?

If you came to this website looking for an endorsement about this particular tent, our view is, it will make for an excellent purchase. Well, these were almost all of the amazing features that you need to know before you buy it. There are many more small little things which the manufacturers have been considerate about and incorporated into its designing and building. Only logged in customers who have purchased this product may leave a review. Specifications from Coleman state the Sundome 2 is 5’x7’.

And finally, the materials used throughout the Alps Mountaineering Meramac 6 are noticeably better. For us, the combination of increased weather protection and nicer materials make the more expensive Meramac 6 well worth considering. The Sundome 4 has two windows and one door and a maximum center height of 4′ 11, which is a tiny bit less than the average height of the 162 other 4 person tents we have studied. Storage pockets inside keep gear organised and a heavy-duty PE floor keeps your sleeping space free of moisture. The 4-Person Sundome® Dome Tent is ideal for camping in warm weather with large windows and a ground vent that help push warm air up and out to keep you comfortable.
