Coleman Montana 8 Person Tent Review


User reviews show that though Montana 8 designed to built quickly, it tends to be a little more challenging to set up than other models of tents. To be fair, however, it is a massive tent than others-as mentioned below under ‘size.’ Its size and door awning may be what adds to the setup time. It recommended that one starts the setup with an extra pair of hands at least 45-60 minutes before sundown to ensure adequate sunlight for setting up.


Unlike many other tents that may be flimsy and cumbersome, especially so after made wet by rain, the entry for the Coleman elite montana 8 person tent includes a door that is hinged and complete with a window that makes up for half the door size. One may attribute this ease of access to the framework of the door.


The tent has been described as “huge” by many consumers, but more technically, the floor space is 16 ft. x 7 ft. (4.88 m x 2.13 m). Architecturally speaking, this would comfortably fit 6 to 7 average-sized adults. According to the Coleman website, It has also been measured to fit 3 queen-sized airbeds. It is also 1.88m high, which is above average human height and comfortable standing space for as long as one is not over 6 feet tall.


Half the door is a window, And there are two windows on either side of the tent. They are set high likely to release warm air that rises, however, the idea of adequate ventilation in more humid climates or during times of higher metabolic action with 7 or 8 people, luggage, and no wind speed is questionable. With this in mind, campers will want to ensure that this tent set up to capitalize on wind direction. This product may not be as bad in good weather as the roof equipped with a meshed skylight. Even if it were to rain, the innovative windows are angled to let in the air but not water.


If 8 people occupied this tent at any time, there would be little compartmental space (on the floor). The only intentional room that comes with the tent is two small bags hung on opposite sides of the tent. This could be proved too inconvenient for all those who would occupy the middle spaces of the tent.
