The Coleman Sundome 4-Person Tent, Green, is a family, dome-style tent that is designed to provide plenty of sleeping room for up to four people. And since it’s made by Coleman, you can be sure that this family tent is loaded with the cool features and durability. From its patented WeatherTec system to keep you dry, to cutting edge ventilation for a more comfortable camping experience, this 4 person tent is designed to provide the on-the-go shelter that campers demand.
If you’ve always thought of dome tents as being those smaller backpacking tents, you’ll be astounded when you see how roomy the Sundome is on the inside. Once this tent is fully set up, you get a full 63 square feet of room. This is enough space for four adults to sleep comfortably. And if you’re camping solo or with just one other person, you’ll even have extra space for storing your gear or to stretch out quite a bit more than you would be able to in a traditional backpacking dome tent.
A Family Style Tent for more than just family
As the name implies, it’s a dome shaped tent. These tents don’t typically have all the bells and whistles of the higher end vestibule tents, but the simplicity of this tent’s set up and its compact size when it is packed up more than make up for some of the extras that don’t typically come with these types of tents.
The ideal candidates for this tent would be families of four. However scouting troops, fishing partners and anyone else who needs plenty of sleeping space, from a relatively compact tent, would all be more than satisfied with the roomy interior and weather protection you get.
