Here is what you need to know about each one.

Coleman 2 Person Pop Up Tent. $52.16

This pop up camping tent is great for beginners. True to its name it practically pops right out of the bag and takes very little effort to put up. The weather proofing of the tent keeps the interior dry, which we all know is a must. As much as I like the outdoors, waking up on a cold wet floor is not how I want to start my mornings. The tent stands at just shy of 3 feet so it can be a bit cramped in terms of standing space but the 7-foot length and 4-foot with gives a fair amount of space for two adults to sleep. The adjustable rainfly is great and holds up well to in climate weather. There is no window in this pop up tent although the opening does have a mesh covering that works well to keep the elements out and still provide a great view.

Coleman 4 Person Pop Up Tent (Dark Room) $119.99

A great pop up tent for the late risers on camping trips. The Dark room advertises to block out 90% of light. This claim may be a bit much, but the tent still gets the job done by blocking a great deal of light out and keeping the tent cooler in the process. The weather proofing on this tent is great as well and with the additional poles, the tent can withstand some pretty harsh winds as well as keep water out. Whether its sun or rain this tent can hold its own. The major drawback though is this easy up tent does take a bit of time to put up. The “pop up tent” part of the tent can be seen as bit of a stretch, but it definitely still takes less time than others on the market.

Coleman 6 Person Pop Up Tent $199.99

Here is a great example of a pop up tent. The 60 second assembly time is no exaggeration, especially with the attached poles. There is a good amount of head space and the windows on the sides let in plenty of light. This easy up tent is great, but the weather proofing is a weak point on this tent. The description says the rainfly is built in, but the tent is still prone to leaking when it rains. So, if you are looking for a great big tent for a sunny weekend trip then this would be the tent for you.

Coleman 8 Person Pop Up Tent $134.46

In terms of spacious pop up tents, this is one of the bests out there. The 8 person Coleman is plenty spacious and takes only 10 minutes to set. Considering how big it is the setup is relatively fast. The hinge door makes getting in and out a breeze. This pop up tent also has pockets on the inside for smaller equipment. The major drawback though is the weather proofing isn’t entirely weatherproof so there is a small chance of some leaking. Other than that, this is a great tent for families and friends looking to get out there for a few days.

Coleman Pop Up Canopy $148.61-$267.99

Unlike the other pop up tents on this list this is actually a pop up canopy. It serves more as a barrier to keep bugs and pests out. The set up for this tent is fast and easy with the rods built in, there is little assembly actually needed. It fits over most picnic tables and still has space for some movement. Since this is a canopy tent and not a regular tent it isn’t meant to keep the elements out as much as the other tents on the list, but it is great for picnics and for hanging out outside with friends, but you better put it in the shade.

Don’t forget to read my article, Pop Up Shower tent. It comes in handy after a few days in the bush and you start to smell a little gamey (smile).

Well, that's all I got for you today!

And in case your are wondering this is how I choose a camping tent.

Thanks for reading.

Do yourself a favor, take a kid camping!
