Coleman Tenaya Lake Fast Pitch Tent
This tent will accommodate 8 people with ease – and there’s even a handy closet with a hanger bar and shelves so that you can store items without taking up space in the main living area.
It’ll help keep things tidy and organized when you’re enjoying some time in the country. Bring all the kit you need and you can stash it in the closet. It won’t take up internal space – but it will still be safe and dry.
Overall dimensions when set up are 13′ 6″ X 9′, with 2′ X 2′ closet. The height at the center is 6′ 4″. Pretty roomy!
You might think that a tent of such considerable size would need a mammoth effort to set up, but that’s definitely not the case.
Coleman’s “Fast-Pitch” system uses color coded, pre-attached top poles and hub, snag free insta-clip suspension and fast fit feet (try saying that quickly!), to let you get this monster up in no time at all. According to Coleman, it goes up 55% quicker than a standard Coleman tent with traditional setup.
The tent features Coleman’s weathertec system, with its patented welded floors and inverted seams. It’s up to 75% more water-resistant than standard tents, so you’ll stay dry if it rains.
Even the front door is better than the typical tent. Rather than just being a zippered flap, it’s actually hinged!
There’s enough room inside for two queen sized airbeds – and the tent can be subdivided into two roomy areas using the supplied room divider.
The guy lines are reflective so that you will see them more easily at night and won’t trip over them if you’re outside after dark.
When it’s time to go, the tent packs down as quickly as it sets up and you can store it away in the wheeled carry bag provided.
Here’s a short video which shows how to set the tent up. There are a few good tips on what to watch out for – and a couple of things to avoid as well.
