As you may have seen, campsites are actually swamped with fast pitch tents, whether it’s a pop up or an instant tent with a pre-attached Frame, they are clearly all doing very well.
The reason for this is simple, stress free pitch, great features and premium quality (for the most part).
But with the abundance of brands on the market which is the one we should focus our attention on and trust with our hard-earned cash. Well, this is a tricky question to answer, given the endless scenarios of camping and which tent may suit you may differ from the next person.
Generally speaking, if we are talking about design, a cabin model is normally best suited for larger, family groups given the larger room space and head heights. Additionally, they are often fitted with an awning, screen room or canopy to provide more shade for the group. Also, dividers help to separate room space. So that’s that.
Dome models are better for smaller groups of 2-3 people or even solo campers and are better suited for ‘off the trail’ style camping. This is because they have a better natural resistance to winds, given the curved walls, allowing wind to glide over aerodynamically. They also have a lower head height, allowing them to be pitched in smaller more subtle spaces.
So that’s the designs out the way, but what about brands? There is still a lot to choose from right. Well one brand I have to say that offers a great choice for both dome and cabin tent models is Coleman. Coleman Instant Tents have been received amazingly well on the market and have generated literally tens of thousands of positive reviews among camping websites, forums and e-commerce giant stores like amazon, eBay and Walmart.
They have manufactured some of the best-selling 4, 6 and 8 person instant tent models and have additionally created an amazing 10 person dark tent model, which has been thoroughly reviewed by thetenthub.com and the features they talk about in their review sound simply amazing.
We aren’t saying they are any better or worse than the likes of Ozark Trail, CORE and Quechua for example, but just they have definitely solidified their position in the instant tent market with pure volume of positive reviews.
It’s the people’s voice that gives us this data and perhaps we could even say, that Coleman Instant Tents have become the peoples champ.
