Coleman Instant Tourer Review

Coleman Instant Tourer Review

Coleman Inatant Toure TentThe Coleman has specifically designed as a super fast erecting tent. In fact the Coleman Instant tourer can be put up in as quick as 1 to 3 minutes. Now to be honest, to put a tent up in 1 to 3 minutes is a bold claim by the manufacturer.  Saying that Coleman are one of the best tent producers in their field.

The Coleman instant tourer is indeed one of the quickest 4 person tent that I have ever had the pleasure to witness being erected, it’s incredible actually.

You see the Coleman Instant Tourer (Available on Amazon) has instant tent technology. The simple thing is,  that the steel poles are already connected to the tent. Coleman then utilises a clever, revolutionary spider like framework. This technology enables the tent to be pitched in literally one minute flat. You can see in the photos to the right how easy it is to do.

Now I have to point out that the instant tourer tent is only a 4 person one room tent, so if you are looking for separate compartments or sleeping quarters then this tent isn’t for you.

The Coleman Instant tourer has been designed for the more active camping community or someone that is on the go and moving from camp site to campsite quite quickly. The thing being it is quick to erect and also extremely quick to take down also. Actually I think it would be great for festivals like the famous Glastonbury festival in Somerset. Any outdoor gigs or raves would suit this tent.

Simply get to the gig with 3 of your friends, jump out of the car, get the tent out of the bag and 1 minute later your tents up and running. That’s how to make other festival goers really jealous! When the festivals over, your tent will be down, packed in bag and your off, while others are still messing about trying to pack their tents up.

Let’s have a quick look at the specs

Lets take a look at how quick the Coleman instant tourer is to erect and take down.

 

Ok let’s look at size! The Coleman Instant tourer is 243cm long and 243cm or approximately 8ft wide. It’s a nice square tent so that works out 20 Metres square. I’d say it is plenty big enough for 4 people plus your camping gear. Height it is about 5ft 4 Inches at its peak.
Before you ask, Is it waterproof? Yes it is. You may get some condensation but most single skin tents are the same unless well ventilated.

Coleman Instant Tourer TentThe one issue I have with the Coleman Instant tent and some other tents actually, is that tent pegs supplied are always a bit flimsy. I would recommend that any tent should have heavy duty tent or bivvy pegs. It certainly is worth investing in a set of stronger pegs, especially as they are normally £5 to £10 for a set of 10 pegs.
