Pros

  • Darkroom technology blocks 97% of sunlight for cooler temps
  • Large vestibule for gear storage
  • Easy setup

Cons

  • Not big enough for 4 people
  • If it rains everything in the vestibule gets wet
  • Cant fit 2 queen size air mattresses comfortably

Our Take:

The Coleman Carlsbad 4 Person Dome is a good tent if you’re looking for a great night’s sleep.

Coleman designed the tent with Darkroom technology which blocks 97% of sunlight from entering the inside of the tent.

To me, this puts this tent in a league of its own, especially if you’re bunking with 3 other people and want to maximize your z’s.

The Darker inside also can help keep it cooler, so this is a great summertime tent, especially if you’re going to be in warmer dryer, climates.

One of the coolest features of this tent is the small “patio” vestibule area that is pretty big but most importantly can handle all your dirty gear including muddy boots, towels, and smelly clothes.

This helps preserve the longevity of the tent and the morale of everyone inside.

The included rainfly does ok against the rain and wind, but not the best in extreme weather.

The inside can be a bit small and may not always fit 4 people depending on size so plan on fitting 2-3 comfortably.
