Coleman Montana 8 Tent Review

Setup

Coleman Montana 8 Tent-SetupThough user reviews show that the Coleman Montana 8 is mainly designed for quick setup, it tends to be a little more challenging to set up than other models of tents. However, it is a larger tent than others-as mentioned below under ‘size.’ Its size and door awning may add to the setup time.

It is 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.

Entry

Coleman Montana 8 Tent-EntryUnlike many other tents, this tent may be flimsy and cumbersome, especially after being made wet by rain.

The Coleman Montana 8 includes a hinged door complete with a window for half the door size. One may attribute this ease of access to the framework of the door.

Size

Coleman Montana 8 Tent-SizeThe 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 three queen-sized airbeds. This tent’s height is also 1.88m, above average human height, and comfortable standing space for as long as one is not over 6 feet tall.

Ventilation

Coleman Montana 8 Tent-VentilationHalf 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 is set up to capitalize on wind direction. This tent may not be as bad in good weather as the roof is equipped with a meshed skylight. Even if it were to rain, the innovative windows are angled to let in the air but not water.

Storage

Coleman Montana 8 Tent-StorageIf eight people occupied this tent, there would be little compartmental space (on the floor). The only intentional storage that comes with the tent is two small bags hung on opposite sides of the tent. Coleman Montana 8 tent could prove inconvenient for all those who would occupy the middle spaces of the tent.
