Enter the Coleman 14×8 Foot 8-Person Instant Tent, a two-room tent that sets up in less than a minute. The tent is made using an innovative one-piece design, with poles that come pre-attached to the tent. That means there’s no frustrating assembly and no parts to lose. Simply unfold the tent, spread out the fabric, extend the poles, and click and lock. The only thing easier is rolling out your bag and sleeping in the open.
The tent’s poles come pre-attached to the tent body, helping you pitch the tent in less than a minute.
Made of heavy-duty 150D polyester taffeta, the 14×8 Foot 8-Person Instant Tent is every bit as sturdy as its traditional counterparts. The tent is outfitted with Coleman’s exclusive WeatherTec system, a series of technical features intended to protect you from inclement weather and nasty storms. WeatherTec tents are built with a coated polyester fabric combined with anti-wicking thread, webbing, and zippers, all designed to keep you dry when the rain comes down. The tent’s welded waterproof floor and inverted floor seams, meanwhile, dramatically increase the water resistance by hiding the needle holes inside the tent and away from the elements.
The tent is also fully taped, eliminating the need for a separate rainfly. Add in a strong, wind-responsive frame and you have a shelter that performs like a brick house during a storm. In fact, Coleman is so confident in its WeatherTec system that it exposes its WeatherTec tents to a rain room that simulates nasty downpours, and to a wind machine capable of blowing hurricane force gusts. The results? Even after the tests, Coleman guarantees its WeatherTec tents will keep you dry. It stands 76 inches tall in the center and includes room for two queen airbeds. The tent weighs 37.7 pounds and carries a limited one-year manufacturer’s warranty.
The tent sleeps up to 8 people in its 112-square-foot footprint. About Coleman
More than 100 years ago, a young man with an entrepreneurial spirit and a better idea began manufacturing lanterns in Wichita, Kansas. His name was W.C. Coleman, and the company he founded would change life in America. A man plagued with such poor vision he sometimes had to ask classmates to read aloud to him, Coleman saw a brilliant light in 1900 in a drugstore window that stopped him in his tracks. He inquired about the light inside and discovered he was able to read even the small print on a medicine bottle by the illumination. The lamps had mantles, not wicks, and were fueled by gasoline under pressure instead of coal oil. Soon afterward, Coleman started a lighting service that offered a “no light, no pay” clause–a big step forward for merchants who were burned by inferior products that rarely worked–and drew substantial interest from businesses that wanted to keep their lights on after dark.
In the ensuing years, Coleman expanded its product line well beyond lanterns. The company’s current catalog is thick with products that make spending time outdoors a pleasure. There are coolers that keep food and drinks cold for days on end, comfortable airbeds that won’t deflate during the night, a complete line of LED lights that last for years, powerful portable grills that cook with an authentic open-grill flame, and much, much more. Coleman has truly fashioned much of our outdoor camping experience, and expects to do so for generations to come.

Awesome Tent. This tent is really great! Had it for a month now. I’ll just list pro’s and cons to keep this review simple:PROS1 – Large! Lots of room and tall enough to stand!2 – Roof vents! Keeps it cool.3 – Large windows, front area towards the door is mostly screened – very nice!4 – Fairly waterproof right out of the bag. Did not waterproof and left it out in a storm where we got 50mm of rain! (yes, 50!! It was coming down harder than I have ever seen… hail…
I was wrong. And that’s never easy for me to admit. Let me start by saying I definitely feel in love with the “idea” of this tent and made the purchase with my heart and not my brain. I read all the negative reviews (no rain fly, poor door design, water everywhere) but choose to focus more on the positive ones (goes up in like 5 seconds, very spacious, no rain fly needed.) Our Colman 4 Person had been serving us well for years, but we’ve added two outdoor-loving little girls to the family and it was time to upgrade. We live in Belgium and rain…
Went up Easy, but fell apart We set this tent up once and one of the bottom straps popped right out of the seam away from the corner of the tent. We sent it back and exchanged it for another of the same tent, and it did the exact same thing again. This tent was very easy to set up, and went up fast, but it’s very poorly made. I would not recommend anyone waste their money on this tent.
