When you want to get out into the wild and still be comfortable, you want Coleman outfitting you. The Montana 8 person tent has all the amenities of your home. It is spacious and has plenty of room for two families to go camping and fishing.

It sets up into smaller areas within and the kids on either side have their own small side tents. Adults can share the middle area with plenty of room to go around for everyone.

The stress points are reinforced and the doorways and windows seal. A weather cover protects you from anything Mother Nature can throw at you. It also has a shady awning over the entrance to block the sun and rain.

When the windows are open, a cooling breeze makes the inside comfortable for a good night's rest. It packs into a compact bundle that fits inside an SUV or the trunk of your car. Its best feature is the ease for set up and knockdown when it’s time to go home.

This tent doubles as a writer's retreat, a workroom for the gardener, and an office, all in the comfort pf your backyard.

It's also the perfect playroom for the kids.

Pros & Cons


Sets up in around 30 minutes

The door is easy to open and close and it doesn't leak in a rainstorm.

Stood up to 8 hours of rain and nary a drop inside

Tilted windows let the air in and keep the rain out.


The floor is a bit thin but a ground cloth is a good idea anyway.

Final verdict

One of the reviewer's favorite Coleman products, I use mine as a writer's office out in the backyard. During fishing season, it is by my favorite lake where we all have fun.

The family loves it and I can even write a bit too. For a family, it is roomy and even the dog has a spot of his own. Your air mattresses can lie side by side and adults can stand up without bumping their heads. This reviewer gives it two thumbs up.
