Coleman Sundome Camping Tent

Much like with all Coleman tents, their main selling point is often the overall value of the tent rather than special design features that make it stand out. However, we did find a couple of things that piqued our interest. One thing we also found particularly interesting about this tent is the number of versions available. The easy and simplicity of set up also makes the a smart choice for family camping trips. Not only does it cut down set up time and leave more time for enjoying your trip, teaching kids to set this tent up is made easy thanks to the design.

The 1000D polyethylene fabric used for the floor of this tent is highly rugged, the canopy material is made of 68D polyester mesh, and the rainfly is 75D polyester taffeta—presumably to save on weight. This did not raise any alarms since these sections of the coleman screen tent tent shouldn’t be taking much abuse. What did give us cause for concern was the fiberglass tent poles. Although we cannot cite any breakages with these poles, we are always hesitant when they are utilized since fiberglass is much less forgiving than aluminum.

The 4-person version of the Coleman sundome tent is affordable and easy to set up, making it a fantastic option for new campers. Sundome 2 has a good sized carry bag and it holds the tent with room to spare. In the bag, you’ll find the tent body, two long poles for the tent body, one short pole for the rain fly, a small “welcome mat” and (9) stakes. Setup instructions are sewn inside the carry bag, though I was able to figure out how to set it up without reading them. The Coleman tent is not really a four person tent unless you have small children, under the age of five. The tent would work for four people in an emergency, otherwise the tent is just large enough for the both of us, a small carry-on travel bag to keep our clothes dry, and a queen size air mattress.

When compared to other low-budget models, the Coleman Sundome does an impressive job of keeping the tent free from condensation. The bathtub floor that comes with welded corners and inverted should keep small rain showers out of the tent. GearLab is founded on the principle of honest, objective, reviews.

With a double-wall design and generous use of mesh on two sides and the ceiling, the Coleman Sundome 6 offers very good ventilation. Adding to the breezy feel is its partial rainfly, which when guyed out allows for a significant amount of airflow on warm summer nights. You also get a zippered mesh door and back wall along with a floor vent located at the back of the tent.

It could be great for bikepacking or camping with a motorcycle. Here at all our reports are produced from our unique dataset of over 1,000 tents, that are sold in the United States.
