Coleman Coastline 3 Plus

Coleman Coastline 3 Plus Review

Coleman Coastline 3 Plus tentSimilar to the 2 Plus from Coleman, the Coleman Coastline 3 Plus is especially The Coastline 3 plus is very sturdy and stable and is intended as a three man tent. Indeed it has ample room for use as a 3 person tent and also has a spacious storage area for all your camping gear.

The Coleman Coastline 3 Plus is a superbly designed and well thought out 3 person tent. Essentially the 3 plus is extremely easy and quick to put up and saying that, take down (No rocket scientist required). Because like most of the Coleman tents the poles and ties are colour coded which makes it so much easier to erect. Even an idiot like me can do it. (well I’m not quite that bad)

Coleman are always on top of their game when it comes to easy pitch tents. All their modern tents have great well thought out features too. The last thing you need when camping is a tent that is problematic to erect and not enough space. You cant go wrong with the Coleman Coastline 3 Plus.

The size of the 3 Plus is 4.2m square in the sleeping area, 3.78m square in the storage area. It also boasts an impressive 26m square pitching surface area.

Here’s More Dimensions of the Coleman Coastline 3 Plus

The overall length of the 3 Plus tent is 440cm in metric form or 14ft 5 inches for people who prefer feet and inches. The sleeping area width is 190cm which is 6ft 3 approximately. The sleeping area length is 200cm which is 6ft 7 inches approximately. So as you can see the sleeping area of the Coleman Coastline 3 Plus is excellent for 3 people sharing a tent.

We nearly bought the Coleman Coastline 3 Plus (Available on Amazon) last year instead of a fishing bivvy and we may still buy one yet. The reason we liked it was that it has plenty of useful storage. It has a storage area of 210cm x 200cm, that is 6ft 10 inches by 6ft 7 inches approximately which is so useful in fishing situations or of course camping. The Height of the Coleman 3 plus is a generous 140cm (approximately 4ft 7 inches.

Let’s have a look at the video of the Coleman Coastline 3 Plus Video

You can expand the video by clicking on the little square box in the bottom right hand side on the video if you want too.

Coleman Coastline 3+ TentThe Coastline 3 Plus comes with a detachable groundsheet which I like as it is easier to clean after your camping trip. The groundsheet also has a small raised edge which helps stop bugs and water getting in too. It apparently aids ventilation as well. The groundsheet is also made with a thick PE material for durability and heavy usage.

Ventilation is no problem with the Coleman Coastline 3 PlusThe great design of this tunnel type tent offers excellent ventilation by its built in vents. You can also open up both sides of the storage area, also the main front porch area for even more ventilation in the warmer weather. The good thing is you can soon zip up either side of the 3 Plus if the wind gets up. Ideal if the winds coming from one direction as you can just zip one side too.

Conclusion:  This tent is excellent to use as a large 2 person or good for a 3 person tent. I cannot see a downside that’s why I’m rating this a 9.5 /10 Available on Amazon
