Coleman has put together a well designed, smart dome tent that has many cutting edge features, that will help keep your family safe and comfortable while spending time under the stars.

It is a spacious tent with room for the whole crew, and room for gear. It has good weather protection as well as its own built-in lighting arrangement, which makes it one of the smartest tents on the market.

Its made by a quality company using quality materials and comes as quite a portable item in a carry case weighing in around 29 pounds.

We found another Coleman product here which is part of a numerous array of camping products made by a company that has been around for what seems like forever.

We thought the Coleman instant 8 tent was a good quality product which provides good shelter while keeping everything inside dry during mild to moderate afternoon storms, and we found it to be quite stable in moderate winds.

This is a good value tent for regular family camping trips, very easy to set up and most suitable for car camping.

Ventilation was quite comfortable during the day although on really hot days it may get a little stuffy a small fan would help. Its stylish design and weather-resistant features make this tent an ideal family shelter for camping.

I think that overall this is a quick and easy setup tent that will provide good protection from wind rain and bugs while outdoors with a few very nice smart design features to make life more comfortable.

Its spacious size and good looks would blend into any camping environment, and I would have no hesitation in recommending this tent as a small family tent or small group shelter.

If your still not sure and maybe want another option, then have a look at the very good Kodiak Flex-Bow Canvas Tent.

  1. Thank you for this in-depth review.  I Love, love, love this Coleman Montana 8 Tent! I am shopping for a spacious tent for my family of four and a large dog.  This seems like it will totally fit the bill. First of all I am so happy it is by Coleman, a name I am familiar with that has made great camping gear for years and years. I am really impressed with the new innovations like lighting and the ability to have electrical access  in the tent via the E Port. It also seems like a breeze to set up and the Amazon price is reasonable. I will be discussing this tent with my husband but I think we have found our tent!  Can you think of any drawbacks with this tent and our dog? He is a 60lb Golden Lab and would definitely be in there with us, Thanks so much for this information, it is very appreciated.

    • Hi Heather, this tent will provide you with good shelter for your family getaways and a 60lb Lab will have a ton of fun. The features are very good, it comes with no real drawbacks that we could find that would be a deal breaker and should last you many seasons of family adventures


  2. I haven’t been camping in 6 years since I moved to the East Coast, simply because the drive to upstate NY is a good 4 hours, but I do remember the importance of not only having a quality tent (and enough tents if you’re camping with a group) but the importance of proper tent setup! This is a great tent for a group of friends or can even be used as a super romantic camping trip for just 2 people. Either way, the only company I’ve ever used when considering a tent was Coleman Montana because my first tent was by this company and every tent I’ve ever used was by this company and I never had any issues.

    • Hi Aria, great comment, yes Coleman does make some good gear also been around for a long time. Thank you have a great day, Shane.
