Summary: If bologna's name is "Oscar Meyer," disappointment's name is "Coleman." Easily the most poorly-made, unnecessarily-heavy, and least water-resistant tent I've owned. If you own one, be sure to tape and seal your seams and apply a generous treatment of DWR to all the fabric. Any points Coleman earns for affordability are lost for their complete and utter disregard for quality.
Pros: Inexpensive and affordable for entry-level or beginner campers, Durable and waterproof bathtub floor, Readily available at non-specialty retailers
Cons: Low-quality materials and construction, Ventilation all at the upper level and none at the lower level, Fabric is not water resistant and will soak through, Steel stakes heavy and easily bent, Fiberglass poles heavy and prone to cracking, Carrying bag too small, Does not fit more than 2 adults comfortably
