During the zombie apocalypse, tents are not necessarily a good idea. They could easily turn into a “lunch box” for zombies. On the otherhand, you need something to protect you from the elements or you and your family might end up dead from exposure.

If you decide to get a tent, then also look into some sort of early warning system such as motion detectors. A motion detector might be the difference between life and death when zombies approach your campsite.

Being able to put this tent up and take it down quickly is a great benefit when you need to move fast. If you’ve got a herd of zombies approaching, this tent won’t slow you down.

The Coleman Instant 8 person 14- by 10- Foot tent is perfect for the family that is looking to get their campsite set up quickly to start enjoying the outdoors. This is an 8 person, two room tent that has straight walls that make¬†standing up in this tent easy with plenty of head room at 6’5″ center height. Fully taped seems with 150D fabric allows Coleman to provide the keeps you dry guaranteed without the need to install a rain fly.

The tent boasts a roomy interior with sleeping space for up to 8 people.

The Coleman Instant Tent sets up and collapses in 1 minute or less.

Unlike tents that promise a quick setup but still have you puzzling over the shock-corded poles 10 minutes in, the Coleman 14×10 Foot 8-person Instant Tent delivers simple and quick setup in a minute or less.

The secret to the tent’s seamless setup is the pole system that comes pre-attached to the tent. As a result, assembly couldn’t be easier: just unfold the tent, spread it out, extend the poles, click them together, and lock them into place. Before you know it, you’ll have a full two-room tent that stands 14 by 10 feet, with a center height of 6 feet 5 inches. Despite the tent’s versatility, it’s still as strong and weatherproof as ever, with Coleman’s exclusive WeatherTec system helping protect you from inclement weather and nasty storms. WeatherTec tents are built with a coated polyester fabric combined with anti-wicking thread, webbing, and zippers, all designed to keep you dry when the rain comes down. The tent’s welded waterproof floor and inverted floor seams, meanwhile, dramatically increase the water resistance by hiding the needle holes inside the tent and away from the elements. And campers will love the strong, wind-responsive frame, which includes redesigned poles and guy-out triangles that anchor the tents and increase performance. In fact, Coleman is so confident in its WeatherTec system that it exposes its WeatherTec tents to a rain room that simulates nasty downpours, and to a wind machine capable of blowing hurricane force gusts. The results? Even after the tests, Coleman guarantees its WeatherTec tents will keep you dry.

The tent’s exterior is tough and long-lasting, with heavy-duty 150D construction that’s twice as thick as Coleman’s standard tent fabric. When combined with the fully taped rain fly seams, the tent can even keep you dry without requiring a separate rain fly. The tent also offers ample room for sleeping or hanging out. Campers have their choice of sleeping in one large room with enough space for eight people, or dropping down the divider and turning the tent into a two-room palace. And hot nights will seem far more refreshing thanks to the two doors and seven windows, which provide terrific ventilation and 360-degree views. Other features include vertical walls that make it easy to stand and move about the tent, an interior gear pocket, reverse angle windows, and easy-to-follow instructions sewn into the durable carrying bag. The tent carries a limited one-year warranty.

About Coleman

More than 100 years ago, a young man with an entrepreneurial spirit and a better idea began manufacturing lanterns in Wichita, Kansas. His name was W.C. Coleman, and the company he founded would change life in America. A man plagued with such poor vision he sometimes had to ask classmates to read aloud to him, Coleman saw a brilliant light in 1900 in a drugstore window that stopped him in his tracks. He inquired about the light inside and discovered he was able to read even the small print on a medicine bottle by the illumination. The lamps had mantles, not wicks, and were fueled by gasoline under pressure instead of coal oil. Soon afterward, Coleman started a lighting service that offered a “no light, no pay” clause–a big step forward for merchants who were burned by inferior products that rarely worked–and drew substantial interest from businesses that wanted to keep their lights on after dark.

In the ensuing years, Coleman expanded its product line well beyond lanterns. The company’s current catalog is thick with products that make spending time outdoors a pleasure. There are coolers that keep food and drinks cold for days on end, comfortable airbeds that won’t deflate during the night, a complete line of LED lights that last for years, powerful portable grills that cook with an authentic open-grill flame, and much, much more. Coleman has truly fashioned much of our outdoor camping experience, and expects to do so for generations to come.

Great tent, would be worth 5 stars with one minor modification you can make yourself We got this tent this spring to replace an OLD Coleman external frame tent that used to leak on us like a seive, even when all we had was a heavy dew. Anyway, this tent has performed like a champ for the camping we did this summer.First of all, the plusses…and there are plenty:1) This tent is EASY to set up. The external frame and tent never come apart, so you don’t have a chance to lose anything. I have set the tent up on my own, but, frankly, it’s easier to set up…

Great tent for the price UPDATE: We’ve now camped with this tent for 3 seasons and have experience with weather resistance. It rained the entire week, with some serious downpours, this last camping trip in August. Ours was the ONLY tent that didn’t flood out. We kept the doors & windows zipped up and had no water leakage at any of the floor, window/door, or side seams. We had a tarp over the tent & camping area so can’t attest to the resistance of the ceiling but have no doubts it would perform as well as the rest of…

IF YOUR BIG AND STRONG, YOU WILL LOVE IT This is a great tent! Do yourself a favor and instead of taking it out of the box and trying to beat the 1 minute time for assembly, read the directions and familerize yourself with the proper way to put it up and take it down. After 1 or 2 times you will be setting up in about a minute. I am 6’3′ so I can easily lift and reach all the moving parts. It is a heavy tent (45lb) and its about 4 feet when in its carry bag. 45lbs may not sound like a lot but when it is stretched 4 feet accross…
