If you have ever set up and taken down a traditional tent you know how frustrating and time consuming it can be. That frustration can grow with a missing piece such as a tent pole. The amount of time and work this tent will save you is incredible. It’s quick and easy set up comes from its construction. Although Coleman tents are known for quality construction and durable materials, their Instant Tents are unique in the way they are put together. The most notable feature is their pre-attached poles. No longer will you have to search through the tent poles to match them up with the correct sleeve to put it in. This is already done for you, every time. This tent comes out of the bag ready to stand up. Another nice feature is the shape of the tent. Coleman Instant Tents are designed with the sides or walls in a more vertical position. This gives you more usable space and more headroom. Most tents use a slanted or angled wall design. Just imagine you have arrived at your campsite. The car truck or SUV is loaded with all your gear. One person could get out the Coleman Instant Tent and have it set up all by themselves before the rest of your gear has even begun to be unloaded. That’s the beauty of the Coleman Instant.
