Coleman Camping is Classy and Cool

Remember the last time you went camping and that jerk Biff Darlingpuff laughed at your off-brand bear whistle, generic tent spikes, and budget-model firewood? NEVER AGAIN! Coleman's THE brand of camping. You can't say "Coleman" without someone saying, "Going camping?"

No, that is for 2 PEOPLE fighting. Dual is cirrect for 2 burners fighting. Duel would be OK for 2 burners burning.

Confused? Hope so. I was funning.

Dual=2.

Duel=FIGHT.

I own the 4 in 1 table set and they work well. They are pretty narrow when used separately, and keep in mind when used together there is the gap in the middle. I haven't put them through anything too rough, mostly just as a prep station and as a buffet table at the camp site. For those uses, as I said, it worked well.

I was looking into purchasing the coffee maker posted here, but went with their stove top coffee maker since the price was about half. The reviews I did read were mostly all positive for the one here on woot, though. I just used the stove top one this past weekend and loved it, so that's a great, cheaper alternative if you're like me and need drip coffee while camping.

I purchased my Coleman 8-person instant tent 12 months ago. If you are considering on purchasing Coleman 8-Person Instant Tent. There are couple things you’ll need to be aware.
1. Coleman 8 person Instant Tent comes in two different size. 8’x8’ and 8’x10
2. You will need to purchase a Rainfly. Unfortunately, Coleman is no longer making rainfly for Coleman 8 people instant tent size 8’x10’. I spend over 6month searching and looking for the rainfly to fit the 8’x10’. Amazon used to have rainfly for the 8’x8’.

I am a little confused about the rain fly. They advertise that you don't need the fly to stay dry...it is only so you can leave the top windows vented to reduce humidity/condensation. I guess what I'm asking is if you don't have the fly will it still keep rain out? Thanks!

I've been reading the reviews of these tents on Amazon for a long while (and thanks Woot for carrying them!!!). Reports vary greatly, what a surprise. Some people swear no fly is needed, the tent stays nice and dry even in heavy weather, others complain of drippage in mild rain. I had planned to add a fly, personally.

Grabbed the 2 burner white fuel stove. Question, you state its 1 year coleman warranty but coleman's website states it is 5 years. Do I only get one year because I bought it from woot?

Amazon currently sells two Coleman instant tents that they designate as "8-person". The tent shown here is the smaller of the two, at 14x8, and from what I can see on Amazon, they do sell a fly for it.

Amazon also shows a larger one, 14x10, but they don't seem to have a fly for that one at this point -- it just says "coming soon". There's a chart on the page for the rainfly that shows this info.

I bought the 4-in-1 table a few weeks ago to use for craft fairs, and it's pretty awesome. However, I can't say that Woot is offering a particularly good deal. After all, if you buy it through Amazon Prime it's only $54.86!!! So unless you're buying other stuff and getting the free shipping, it would actually be better to go through the regular Amazon listing.

One huge advantage to a rain fly is you can leave your vents open to get some air even when raining. Hot humid nights, this makes a difference. Without one you have to button up and then you get dome drips. Frankly, I have an love a lot of Coleman products for camping but their tents are not one of them. Spend the extra bucks and get a better made (brand) tent.

For anyone with experience with the "instant" tents.. do they still take two people to set up? I would love to find a large tent I can set up myself.

I bought the 14x10 last summer, it was listed as a "10-person" tent, not 8. The one I bought was a Signature Series, which is lighter in color, and comes with enormous screen panels in the roof, and a fly that covers those. I take my 2 young kids camping, and I love the tent because they aren't old enough to help set up and take down - this can be done quickly & easily by a single adult. Note, it IS a heavy tent. Some of these come with a room divider (mine did), allowing 2 separate bedrooms, or a screened front porch plus private bedroom. The huge windows are awesome, it almost feels like you're out in the open. With the fly off mine to expose the roof panels (90% screened area), it's even closer.

I have a large Coleman tent, and while I have had to make some minor repairs and improvements, it has been a great tent. I have probably had it for at least 5 years, and it has seen a lot of usage. I foresee being able to continue using it for another 2 years or more. I'm also a fan of the white fuel stoves. They are much cheaper to operate than propane, and just cooler and more manly, LOL! I'd also like to have a white gas lantern as seen here. I know, I like cheap LED lanterns and flashlights, too, but these lanterns are much brighter, and again, cooler and manlier. Have fun camping!

The white gas is the only way to go. Not only less money to use but if you can find a service station open, you can find fuel. I changed out all my cooking and lighting from propane to white gas years ago.

I'm interested in the Premium Dual Fuel Lanterns - but my question is can I use these inside? I've never seen anything that burns gasoline that doesn't give off too much fumes to use inside - not really a camper myself but would love to have this for when the power is out and I need to read my paper woot flyers to keep sane ? Anyone ?

They can be used separately, in a long line, at 3 heights from counter top to dinner table top to lower than that. I have seen it in person and it seems pretty sturdy. Not sure what #4 is.

I wouldn't use it inside a tent. It gives off carbon monoxide and if you knock it over you have a fire.
Using it in a house - well if the house was big, it was in the center of a big table and kids weren't playing basketball in the house you'd probably be OK if there was some ventilation.

The folding table at $49 + 5 SHIPPING is about the same price ($54.86) @ Amazon which has free shipping.

I have the Evanston 6 person tent, and I think it's great. I mainly like the design of it. The screened in area was a big selling point (I live and use it in FL.) For me, it's a 2 person tent. I had a queen-sized mattress, a chair, three coolers (small, medium, and large), a couple bags, and probably some miscellaneous stuff lying around, and it fit everything nicely without seeming too big.

One of the times I used it, it rained quite a bit. The rain eventually penetrated the tent, and there was some leakage (the rain fly was on). I plan on spraying it with some kind of waterproofing thing next time I'm using it and there is a chance of rain.

I paid around $125 for it on ebay about a year and a half ago, and that was a pretty good deal at the time.

Yeah as my question stated I'm not into camping and I'm not concerned with stupid as far as allowing kids to be bouncing something on fire I just assume that it's not for indoor use since the fumes would be bad but wanted some expert feedback if this was considered an outdoor lantern only or not - thanks --CK
