Coleman Sundome 6 Person Tent Review
This is a traditional dome style tent, however with only two poles for the main structure and one additional for the fly, it’s a very simple and quick setup.
You’re looking at 5-10min for the structure and fly and the same again for the pegs and guy ropes.
The Coleman Sundome range, with their unique breathable ventilation panels and "half-flysheet” fly system, are designed for warmer conditions.
With it’s Polyester 68D outer and 11mm fibreglass poles, you should have absolutely no problems in heavy rain and wind.
Piece of mind for rained-out festival goers is the 1000D, tub style, heat sealed, polyethene floor, which should keep you dry inside even in the worst conditions.
With internal dimensions of 3m (L) x 3m (W) x 1.8m (H), this is an extremely spacious tent for the price point.
For a couple who want a comfortable space (or a double height air queen mattress), this is the perfect tent for weekend getaways or festivals.
It’s weight when packed comes in at 16.5kg with dimensions of 0.7m x 0.2m x 0.4m.
Note Coleman also makes a Sundome 2 Person, Sundome 3 Person and Sundome 4 Person in this range.
Thousands of positive reviews lay testament to this being one of the best cheap tents on the market.
Unless you plan on camping in wintry conditions, we have no hesitation recommending the Coleman Sundome.
