Great little tent. Would probably sleep 3 if you went head to foot. Because it's a single pole, setup is a breeze. Speaking of breeze, since the tent is all mesh underneath (think mosquito net), you can leave the orange cover off half or all of it to get some great circulation on steamy summer nights. This makes it great spring/summer/fall camps.
My only complaints are it's a little heavy for backpacking, and it's hard to fit both the mesh/tarp and your cover into a back pack and have room for much else, but a more experienced packer would probably have no trouble at all.
Since you're never sealed 100% from the wind due to the cover design, it might get chilly on windy nights, but I haven't had a problem yet. Good buy!
Design: 3 season single pole
Ease of Setup: Couldn't be easier - 1 pole and stake the cover down
Weight: 5 pounds (approx.)
Price Paid: $70
Easy to set up and easy to tear down.
I got this tent for car camping not backpacking as it is too heavy for backpacking. Very easy to set up by one person. Stuffing it back in the carry bag required a little finessing, but it will go.
Plenty of room for a queen size air mattress and gear. I like that you can remove the rain fly for stargazing.

- Full mesh
- Single pole design
This is a great tent from a great company. Coleman stands by their products just like any of the other big manufacturers.
The floor of this thing is indestructible. Slide it over rocks, sticks, stumps whatever and never fear of tearing it. The single pole means setup is a breeze. 5 minutes or less easy after you stake the floor down. There is no need for a footprint with this baby because the floor is that indestructible.
I use it for car camping or if there is a need for more "space" if you know what I mean.
