Used the tent camping with our Boy Scout Troop in 100+ weather. Tent met all my expectations. Windows are huge and provide excellent airflow. Set-up was easy and fast. Tent stakes were a bit small so I purchased larger ones. I am 6'4" and could stand up in most of the tent.I have already recommended it to friends.Checked everywhere for pricing and Meijer was by far the lowest. With no [...] or tax (I live in Texas) it really was a good deal.

I've backpacked all over the country for 35 years. I love Coleman. Great products, but not this time. They totally blew the design. Look at the front. Slanted out, with no fly. So, when it rains, and every minute from then on until the tent dries, you open the door and allllllll the rain drops right inside the tent. Coleman needs to add a BIG front awning over the entire front half of the tent out past the bottom of the tent. Then, it'd be water proof.

    Comments about Coleman 8-Person 14x8 Instant Tent:

    Spent 1 week camping solo in it. Got it set up and taken down by myself in 2 to 3 minutes. The screen doors and 5 screened windows provide great ventilation. The 2 roof vents let moisture escape during cold nights. The tent and screen fabric seem to be durable. Easily accommodates a queen size air mattress with ample room for gear. I am very happy with this instant up tent!

    Awful Experience

    from Ferndale, MI

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Easy To Set Up

    Cons

    • 'sticky' Zipper
    • Doesn't Come With Fly
    • Heavy
    • Leaky
    • Poor Design Causes Holes

    Best Uses

      Comments about Coleman 8-Person 14x8 Instant Tent:

      I had to return this tent three times to find one that hadn't been returned and didn't have holes. The way the tent is designed, the poles fold together and the nylon can get pinched in between which causes wearing and eventually holes. The one I took on my 3 day camping trip was fine when I first inspected it before I left, but upon my first night the zipper kept getting stuck and was skipping. The door is also made with three separate zippers that all meet at the bottom and do not connect. So if your concerned with bugs getting inside the tent this one isn't for you.

      When I first purchased the tent I had every intention on buying the rain fly that's sold separately (which I couldn't believe in the first place, rarely do you see a tent that doesn't come with a rain fly), but it is not sold in stores anywhere. I did not have time to purchase online and have it shipped before my camping trip so I decided to trust that it was in fact waterproof. It was not, when it rained it leaked throughout and made a muddy mess that made it uncomfortable to stay in and a nightmare to clean and try to pack up.

        Comments about Coleman 8-Person 14x8 Instant Tent:

        I'm a serious outdoorsman that loves roughing it in the great outdoors. This product (cause of weight) is not made for a hiker that sets up one night and hikes/bikes to another spot the next day. However if you plan on spending a week somewhere then yes it's worth carrying it a good distance. I've carried 50 lb 3 room tents and John boats miles through the woods in Canada to get to secluded fishing areas to stay for a week or more. This tent will be in included in such a trip. I set it up yesterday cause we we're gonna get severe storms. Best place to try a tent for the first time is in the backyard, that way a camping trip isnt ruined if it don't perform. Winds we're awful. Screen tent collapsed countless times, yet the 14 X 8 Colman instant tent stood the test. High and dry, no damage. Ofcoarse as with any tent I buy I always spray it down with rainproof sealer made by Coleman first, nomatter how rain resistant they say the material is I spray it. Added protection = peace of mind. Great product Coleman. If this tent ever wears out I'll be getting another one. I don't see it wearing out anytime soon though. I know my camping gear well, and this tent is great for weekends or weeks of comfort from elements in the great outdoors.

          We are happy with our purchase and it easy to set up. Besure to pull in all "legs" around the center pole when putting it away or you will not get it back in the case. We had to order a rain cover which it needs to extend the life of the tent but I think it should have been included. The storage bag is of poor quality and it has already torn at the seams but we can use a large duffle

          The tent is made of good material which kept us warm in high 40's at night. You get alot of condensation though on the walls with 5 people inside. Biggest down side is IT DOES NOT fit 2 queen air mattress with room to move around.

          Comments about Coleman 8-Person 14x8 Instant Tent:

          I haven't used this for camping yet, but I set it up in the backyard to test it out. My kids (age 10 and 8) easily set it up in 5 minutes despite never having put up a tent in our lives. The bag is heavy, so don't plan to carry it far from the car. When putting it away, be sure to bring in all of the telescoping arms close together so it will fit back in the bag. The kids and I are excited to use it.

            I love this tent. I bought it because of the ease of set up, and it really is easy to set and it's a monster. I have a wife and 3 yr old, so we have plenty of room in an 8 person tent. That's how we like it. This is not a tent for hauling around when hiking, but wasn't designed for that either. it does pack up pretty tight for as big as it is though.

              I've backpacked all over the country for 35 years. I love Coleman. Great products, but not this time. They totally blew the design. Look at the front. Slanted out, with no fly. So, when it rains, and every minute from then on until the tent dries, you open the door and allllllll the rain drops right inside the tent. Coleman needs to add a BIG front awning over the entire front half of the tent out past the bottom of the tent. Then, it'd be water proof.

                We bought this tent on the recommendation of a fellow camper. He however got the first edition which is 2 feet wider and has a second door. Ours does not. Also the item description said "100% waterproof"-not so. We leaked in 2 seams. Disappointed in this Coleman product but we will have to make the best of it.
