We've just finished listing our Coleman range of tents for 2017 , with a few firm favourites and a number of New Designs for 2017. 2017 is the second season for the Coleman Fastpitch range of tents , a range of tents to get your holiday started as quickly as possible , whether your a festival goer - the Galiano range offers an instant tent , simply pops into place once removed from the bag ... it's easy to pop back in too! 

The Drake range offers a traditional , dome style tent , incorporating a built in porch area these tents are great for D of E , weekends , cycling , backpacking just about whenever space may be an issue - the unique Coleman Central Hub allows the Poles to remain in place - no threading through Pole sleeves - simply pull the poles apart and fold towards the central hub.

So lets take a look at what's new from Coleman for 2017 , the first announcement from Coleman for 2017 was that all their New Models will feature Blackout Bedrooms - It's worth noting that this may not apply to all the bedrooms in the tent , we have found on the Valdes 6L and possibly The Valdes 6   that the Blackout was only applied to the main bedroom , the secondary bedroom was a standard bedroom. This does though offer flexibility , the Blackout may not suit everyone! 

Our first new addition from Coleman for 2017 , The Oak Canyon a 4, a 4 person small family tent with a combination of Fibreglass & steel poles giving a great combination of strength, stability whilst keeping weight to a minimum. Featuring the Coleman Blackout Bedroom , 4500mm H/H , reflective guylines and rainskirts. With a pitch size of 485 x 280cm the Oak Canyon is very pitch efficient.

Featuring Colemans Blackout Bedrooms , sewn in groundsheet and a generous 4500mm H/H the Spruce Falls is sure to be a firm favourite with new campers. 

A great starter Tent for a small family , the Rocky Mountain 5 Plus has an integrated Eyebrow Canopy , blackout Bedrooms , again a very generous 4500 mm H/H and Fibreglass Poles - designed to keep pack size to a minimum whilst offering great space. The Rocky Mountain 5 Plus is feature packed & Versatile with a single Bedroom pod that can be split to suit your family camping needs! 

Last but by no means least ... the Coleman Kobuk Valley range of Dome tents , available in 2 , 3 & 4 berths. We're confident that these dome Tents will be extremely popular with Festival Go'ers .....featuring the Coleman revolutionary and patent pending Blackout Bedroom ... need we say more 😊

Why Choose a Tent Carpet?

Over recent years , Tent Manufacturers have responded to #Campers desire to make their Canvas home away from Home even more homely , by offering a range of accessories to compliment Tents. 

There isn't a Tent Manufacturer who hasn't added a Tent Carpet to their range to compliment their family tents in particular , they offer an extra layer of insulation as well as a comfy homely feel to your

family tent , which is a great benefit particularly when camping during those cooler UK Summers  or a little out of season. 

Most Tent Carpets are made from a waterproof backed fleece fabric , sometimes with an extra layer of padding between. Tent Manufacturers take great care to supply tent carpets , made to measure - this very often won't be the whole living area of the tent but the main living area of the tent.

Usually supplied in a carry bag for ease of transport and storage, the tent carpet has become an extremely popular addition to many campers Camping Kit. 

Just a little tip.... whilst we love the benefits of adding a tent carpet , we've used one many times ourselves it's worth bearing in mind that in certain weather conditions condensation can become trapped between the Groundsheet and the Waterproof backing of the Carpet. You can help avoid this by lifting regularly to air during the day and by removing from the tent completely  for a few days before you pack up to go home to allow the Groundsheet to dry completely before packing away.
