Coleman WeatherMaster 10 customer reports
If you want to spend some days camping with your family or friends, you need a sturdy tent to accommodate all of you and allow a certain level of comfort. It must also fulfill some characteristics for this comfort level: it must be waterproof, bug proof and have a good air ventilation. The Coleman Screened 10 reviewis going to see if this particular large tent has the necessary qualities to ensure just that.
The 10 Pearson WeatherMaster has two rooms and is design to hold 10 people. The center height is 6 ft. 8 oz. and the footprint is 17 ft. 9 oz. The different fabric tent parts are made all from a certain type of polyester: the fly is made from Polyester Taffeta 75D, the mesh is made from Polyester 68D and the floor from Polyethylene 1000D. The seams also should be leak-free.
But the truth is that 1 in 3 Coleman Screened 10 customer reports have reported that the fabric and the seams are not that waterproof. The fabric seems to thin and after a few hours of rain it lets water through.
The cabin structure is heavy because the frame is made from steel and fiberglass. This means the tent is resistant and solid, being able to stand firm through a long camping trip.
Just the rain can be a bother sometimes. The tent also has two doors, the front one being hinged. You can also control the airflow through the Variflo system, meaning you have a vent window that controls the ventilation. Also the windows are very large and have reversed angles to keep the rain water out. Too bad the fabric doesn`t.
On a brighter side the setup is easy and simple. The InstaClip attachments, the fiberglass, two color-coded poles and the continuous pole sleeves make sure that the time in which you set up a large tent like this is shortened. It also has an electrical access port so you can get light inside the tent. Even though it has many good features, the tents overall rating is brought down by its poor performance in rainy conditions.
For a tent this size it has an affordable price, varying from 200$ to 300$ in different online shopping sites. It has a one year warranty so if you are the lucky, one in three that gets a leaking tent, you can fix your problem. But if we see where the 10 Person WeatherMaster is made, we can probably picture why there are so many faulty ones. Yes, you guessed it, China. Seeing so many bad reports I can only recommend this tent to you, if you consider yourself a lucky person, other than that you can search for something else.
