Best Coleman Air Inflatable Tents

If you have had enough of dealing with tent poles, here you have my selection Coleman air tents, or inflatable tents, with air beams instead of poles, easy to use, reliable and pleasant. Keep reading.

Coleman is at the forefront in the tents industry, and this includes also this particular niche of air tents, or inflatable tents as some call them. This brand is also best known for its dark rest tents, and you will see that the tents presented here combine both of these features.

If you are new to this, you might want to know that Coleman is a brand that has been around for more than a century, and in all these years they were making outdoor equipment. They are globally present, and they have their Coleman US, Coleman EU, and also Coleman AU branches.

There are many great features here, so you have a barrier-free access, 3 solid windows, E-cable port, but it is here because of its inflatable beams. You have them three.

The shell is a 75D polyester with a huge waterproof rating of 6000 mm. They write that it is with their UVGuard technology and it offers protection of 50+ against the UV rays. The floor is fully integrated, sewn-in and sealed. This is a bathtub style polyethylene. The inner bedrooms is a tent within the shell, with yet another sewn-in extra floor. You have very good ventilation here.

Here are some numbers. The weight is 42.3 lb (19.2 kg), and the dimensions are 15.4 x 10.17 ft (470 x 310 cm). The area is 113 ft² (10.5 m²) and this is more than enough for 4 people.

This is the smallest tent in the Weathermaster series. They also have the Coleman Weathermaster 4XL Air BlackOut, Coleman Weathermaster 6XL Air BlackOut, and Coleman Weathermaster 8XL Air BlackOut.

What I like:

  • 3 Rooms.
  • Ease of use.
  • Full protection.
  • Mesh doors.

What I dislike:

  • The price.
  • The weight.
  • The packed size.


2. Coleman Tent Meadowood Air 4 Person

The Coleman Tent Meadowood Air 4 Person is a tunnel-type tent with 3 inflatable beams instead of classic poles. The only solid pole you have here is the short one that supports its front brim visible in the picture.

The tent is built as a 3-room structure with an inner tent that has a removable divider, and a large living room in front of it. The sleeping area includes yet another feature which this brand is well-known for, the BlackOut Bedroom technology. They claim  that it blocks up to 99% of daylight.

The tent is quite tall with a stand-up peak height of 78.74 inches (200 cm). You have 2 doors and several solid windows. One of the doors is with the drop-down barrier free design, it is visible in the picture.

As for the fabric, you have a shell that is a 75D polyester, and its waterproof rating is 4000 mm. On the floor you have a fully waterproof and sewn-in bathtub style polyethylene. Note that here too the inner tent has its own extra floor, so this means there are two floors one upon another. You also have two E-cable ports, plenty of wall pouches for storage, and a lantern loop.

The weight is considerable, the tent weighs 43 lb (19.5 kg), and the floored area is 118 ft² (11 m²). So this is plenty of space in view of its official capacity of 4 people. No doubt it can accommodate at least 6 users. The packed size is 29.5 x 20.9 x 15 inches (78 x 53 x 38 cm).

Here again this is about a series of tents, and this Meadowood 4 Air is the smallest of them. They also have Meadowood 4, Meadowood 4L, Meadowood 6L, but these three are with solid poles.

What I like:

  • The rooms.
  • Ease of use.
  • Protection level.
  • Solid windows.

What I dislike:

  • The price.
  • The weight.

This huge tent is officially only for 6 people, but you have 3 sleeping rooms, one gigantic living room, and a large porch. So the total area is 301 ft² (28 m²). The peak height is 84.6 inches (215 cm) so you have a stand up height practically everywhere in the tent.

It is here in the list because of its 5 inflatable beams, the only small solid pole is the one that supports the small brim above the side door, you can see it in the picture on the right. The other much larger door is under the porch.

Note that the porch is with a huge zippered door, so it is just like an additional room, the only difference is that this is a floorless area. So here you can use your camping chairs without thinking about the floor, and you can also use this space for cooking. The mentioned bedrooms are with their BlackOut Bedroom technology that blocks up to 99% of daylight.

As for the materials, the shell is a polyester with PU coating and 4500 mm waterproof rating, and fire retardant. The floor is polyethylene. The weight is 84.7 lb (38.4 kg), but no worry the carry bag is with wheels, and the packed size is 30.7 x 22.8 x 20.9 inches (78 x 58 x 53 cm).

They also have the smaller version, the COLEMAN Valdes Deluxe 4 XL Air BlackOut Tent.

What I like:

  • The rooms.
  • Ease of use.
  • Protection level.
  • Solid windows.

What I dislike:

  • The price.
  • The weight.
  • The packed size.

Final thoughts

So this was my selection of the best Coleman air tents, and you realize these are large, tall, easy to use, and pleasant tents. They are originally built for the EU market, so they all share some common features. This means multiple bedrooms, a large living room, solid windows, and high waterproof rating.

But they also come with the dark rest of BlackOut Bedroom feature, and Coleman is the best in this respect. These tents completely block the sunlight so this is useful if you camp with small kids, they can sleep during the day.

They also claim that the temperature in such a tent is 5 degrees lower during the day, and 1 degree warmer during the night. The latter is supposed to be due to the warm air that is trapped between the shell and the inner tent. But this cannot last long, this is just a fabric and not an insulating material. So if you need something warmer, check my list of best insulated tents for winter camping.

You might want to check also these Berghaus Tents that are with air beams and very large, in the same class as the Vango airbeam tents and Coleman tents presented here in the text. Thank you for reading. Let me know if you have questions, there is a comment box below.
