I have a similar 10 person tent. These things are a breeze to set up. Ignore these guys who haven't actually tried. These are super roomy. Bring yourself a broom to sweep it out before you store it and these things will last. I can easily fit 3 queen size in my 10 person tent but typically just do one or two and have a lot of room in between for other stuff.

These is no way this one fits many more people than mine considering the dimensions. Mine appears to have more square feet so I dunno where they got this numbers from.

Weight-wise, with 37.5 lb

Total area is 248 ft² (23 m²)

Best if used for 7 – 8 people maximum. No floor vents. Summer usage only.

Seasons-wise & climate-wise, this is a summer camping tent for quiet weather conditions without much rain or wind. The waterproof rating is very low, just slightly above an ordinary umbrella, and the fly is minimal in size covering only the mesh ceiling. With so many openings and seams, many things can go wrong so it is best to avoid serious weather conditions.

The poles are fiberglass and you have them 6 for the tent support plus two short poles used above the doors to create small brims. The poles are partly behind such a good packed size because all of them are shock-corded and do not take lots of space. But fiberglass is not the strongest material and it needs some care.


Price is exactly what I paid for mine from Walmart 5 years ago. It has lasted all seasons with no issues and pretty poor care. Don't forget to keep tons of big tarps for rain drapes and to use on the ground to keep your tent safe. Just my personal preference.

That website is trash. The "review" was clearly written by someone who doesn't speak English and is just a bunch of generic information pulled from product descriptions.

Good price but doesn't look like instant setup style tent.

good price for a big tent, but using it for family trips i rather not have to deal with setup when you also have to deal with kids. ill hold out for an instant tent.
most of the time setting up a tent is in the site prep. instant tents do nothing to save you time in that area.

the problem with instant tents are the poles. since they have to fold up it creates a weak point. so when they break (At the folding joint) you have to throw the tent away since they are not replaceable. also because they fold they create points where they rub the tent when it is stored, this can cause holes or tears in the tent.

dome tents like this one are a pain to set up because of the poles. get a cabin style tent which is a lot easier to set up. plus a cabin tent has a lot more headroom so it is easier to stand up.

While I've seen friends use the Coleman 6 man instant tent and was impressed with the setup ease, I will say instant tents are heavy! And bulky. Basically the size of a pop up canopy. My 6 man traditional pole tent can fit in a backpack sticking out and is relatively light.

Yeah, Instant tents are great for quick setup and teardown but they're heavy, huge when packed up, and take up way too much trunk space. The sizes are also grossly overstated. I have the Coleman 6 person tent and it can only really fit 3 people and gear.

isnt basic rule of thumb to half the amount advertised of people it fits
