Coleman WeatherMaster 6 Person Tent

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

The Coleman WeatherMaster costs $249.99, and sleeps six people in two separate rooms. Given that the dimensions of the tent are 17 by 9 feet, I would suspect that six adults would not be comfortable in the Coleman. The most that have slept at once in my own were four people, who were jus the right side of comfortable. As usual tents that advertise being big enough for six people probably can sleep the maximum number, but with varying degrees of comfort and I would say that the Coleman is best for four people and below.
A 'porch' attachment pens up at the front of the tent, which is an extremely useful feature, especially if it's raining and you want somewhere dry to change in and out of your boots. A Variflo ventilation system comprises of several vents and a cool air port. If you often camp in hot environments then this is probably indispensible, but unfortunately if you're more used to cold and wet environments like I am, it's just another gap that lets in cold air and drafts.
The Coleman is very easy to set up despite its size, with color coded poles and instructions that make construction easier and thin, lightweight 20mm poles. However, for beginners who aren't adept at threading poles together and securing tents, it would be a good idea to set up the tent before hand, because the size of it makes it a little more difficult to construct than smaller tents, but still simple for its size. The tent is 6 foot 4 inches high in the centre, which makes it much preferable to sit in than most tents which feel oppressive when you're inside.
Overall, the Coleman WeatherMaster is the perfect tent for 2 to 4 people, in conditions where the temperature won't drop too low. It is colored beige and brown too, to avoid any gaudy bright colors obscuring the landscape.
