Does Coleman have good tents?

Coleman doesn’t make the flashiest, most sophisticated, or highest performance tents on the market, but few (if any) brands can beat their combination of value, quality, and customer support at this price point.

Is OZtrail or Coleman better?

In terms of the OZtrail vs Coleman tent, there’s really not much of a difference, and it just comes down to personal choice. However, if you’re looking for a good inexpensive alternative to the Coleman pop up tents, the entry level OZtrail Fast Frame series is a great option to consider.

Is Coleman the best tent brand?

In general, however, we recommend committed campers steer clear of Coleman designs. A step up in price to brands like REI or Kelty above will get you considerably better protection and longevity with upgraded materials (many of Coleman’s tent poles are fiberglass rather than aluminum), hardware, and seam sealing.

Is it OK to put a tent up in the rain?

It’s okay if the exterior of the tent fly gets wet, but you obviously don’t want the underneath side to get wet – all that wetness will drip onto the inner tent. Make it a habit to always roll the fly so the exterior is outwards. Then it won’t matter if you set the fly in the rain while pitching the other parts.

What is the difference between waterproof and water resistant tent?

There is a difference between water-resistant and waterproof — the former only reduces the amount of rainwater seepage while the latter eradicates it completely. As such, most tents are not waterproof unlike what is said on the package, which is nothing but a marketing tactic.
