Coleman 4 Person Dome Tents

Here you have my selection of the best Coleman 4 person dome tents that are currently on the market, all incredibly popular and with a variety of features.

The list below is short but note that these are just representatives of larger series, so you can choose them in different sizes if the 4-person capacity is not for you.

Related to this, Coleman just like most of other brands, determine the capacity by the number of sleeping pads that can fit on the floor. So although these tents can accommodate 4 people, it is always best to downgrade the number of people in such tents. Or you can go for a larger option as this is possible with their tents.

The tents in the list below are ordered by the floored area from smaller to larger. Note that some have vestibule or screen rooms that are without floor, so this is extra space for storage.

1. Coleman Sundome 4 Person Tent

Coleman Sundome 4 Person Tent.

This is one of their most popular tents, and you can realize this from the fact that on Amazon alone, as of the moment of writing this text, it has received more than 41000 reports by customers. So this is something incredible and you will not easily find a match on the market.

One of the reasons for such a popularity is its price, but this is also an easy to use and simple tent. They build it in several different colors and sizes, so you have 2, 3, 4, and 6 person options available.

With its weight of 9.7 lb (4.4 kg) the tent can be described as very light. The dimensions are 9 x 7 ft (274 x 213 cm), and the area is 63 ft² (5.84 m²). The peak height is moderate 59 inches (150 cm). It packs small so it measures (L x D) 23.8 x 4.5 inches (60.5 x 16.6 cm).

The tent is freestanding and supported with two main fiberglass poles, plus one short ridge pole. It has one door and two windows, and it is equipped with a rear floor vent. You also have two mesh pockets for storage and a cable port.

What I like:

  • Very light.
  • Easy to use.
  • Ventilated.
  • Incredible price.

What I dislike:

  • Only one door.
  • No vestibule.


2. Coleman Carlsbad 4 Person Tent

Coleman Carlsbad 4 Person Tent.

This Coleman Carlsbad 4 Person Tent is also one of their most popular tents, and this is for all the good reasons. You realize from the picture that it has a screen room or screened porch which is with the floor but it is not fully sealed. Namely, the screen is without panels and you have only partial coverage. This means you can use this space for sitting while being protected from flying insects.

This is also one of their dark-rest and it blocks 98% of sunlight. The material is also reflective from the outside, and they claim that the heat is reduced by up to 11%.

It is here because of its shape which is an extended dome, and you have what they call the fast pitch design. This basically means that the shock-corded poles are pre-attached to the hub element on the top.

As for the materials, the poles are fiberglass and the fly is a polyester taffeta 75D. The floor is bathtub design and with patented corner welds. They use inverted seams design which they call the WeatherTec system with Polyguard fabric.

The weight is 7.96 lb (3.61 kg), the total dimensions are 11 x 9 ft (335 x 274 cm). The inner room measures 9 x 7 ft (274 x 213 cm), and the screen room 9 x 4 ft (274 x 122 cm). So you have the total area of 99 ft² (5.84 + 3.34 m²).

The peak height is 4 ft 11 in (150 cm), and the packed size is very good (L x D) 24 x 6 inches (61 x 15 cm).

What I like:

  • Lightweight.
  • Great packed size.
  • Great price.
  • Pleasant screen area.
  • Very dark sleeping area.

What I dislike:

  • Not very tall.

This tent is from their Skydome series that includes many tents with different fly designs. Here you have a 2-room structure suitable for a 3-season camping. Namely, the front room can be used as a screen room but it is fully protected, so you have a sealed floor and panels on all its screens.

The tent is with one large door visible in the picture. Inside you have storage pouches on the walls, and an E-cable port is also available. The official setup time of this tent is only 5 minutes.

The weight of this tent is 16.8 lb (7.6 kg), and the overall dimensions are 10.5 x 8 ft (320 x 244 cm). As for the floored area, you have 56 + 22 ft² (5.2 + 2 m²).

Note also that the tent is quite low, its peak height is 4 ft 8 in (142 cm) so it will perform well even in windy places. The packed size is 24.5 x 9.5 x 9.5 inches (62 x 24 x 24 cm).

 

What I like:

  • Overall design.
  • Ease of use.
  • 2 Rooms.

What I dislike:

  • Fiberglass poles.

Final thoughts

So this was my selection of the Coleman 4 person dome tents, and you realize they include a variety of features. So the list includes a series of tents where you have a transition from a simple dome to an extended dome with a partial protection in its extension, and finally to an extension with a full protection. You have also seen an excellent example of a dark rest tent. But it is best to disregard the official capacity, as usual it is unrealistic.

Editor’s Choice

The tent below is my choice because of several reasons. It offers a full protection with its massive fly, and its well-deigned front room is a true room but it can be used as a screen room when the sky is clear. The poles are such that you have plenty of volume although this is a dome structure.
