Coleman's Instant Tent can be assembled in 60 seconds.

How long does it take to set up a campsite? If you’ve packed Coleman’s Instant Tent, you could do it in fewer than 60 seconds. That’s one minute from packed to fully assembled, meaning less time for prep and more time for the fun stuff like toasting marshmallows and hiking the trails.

Coleman makes it easy. Just remove the tent from its carrying bag, unroll it, pull up the preattached poles and pop out the legs. No need to curse the various assembly components; no getting tangled in various lines and fabric. And taking the tent down is just as easy.

Although the Instant Tent’s convenience is the key selling point, it also features Coleman’s WeatherTec system, which will keep you dry even during the inevitable downpour. Fabric is twice as thick as standard material, with fully taped, leak-free seams that do not require a rain fly.

The Instant Tent holds up to four people and a queen-sized air mattress. (Other Instant Tent sizes are available for up to six and up to eight people.) The four-person size measures 8 x 7 feet, with center height of 4 feet 11 inches. Weight is 9.8 pounds. Includes a one-year limited warranty.

Price for the four-person Instant Tent is $135.99. Purchase or find a local retailer at Coleman’s website, coleman.com.
