Give your favorite couple the gift of enjoying the magic and beauty of the great outdoors with the Coleman Dark Room Skydome Tent. This stylish tent combines the important “must have” features of a good camping tent with plenty of extra perks. As a four-person tent, the 8 x 7-foot floor plan on the Coleman Dark Room Skydome Camping Tent is a roomy tent for the price. In fact, it fits a queen-size air mattress and with a generous center height of 4 feet 8 inches, moving about the tent is fairly easy. Coleman has upgraded their dome design with the Dark Room Skydome Camping Tent, such that they’ve increased the headroom by 20% by making steeper walls.

One of the best things about the Coleman Dark Room Skydome Camping Tent is the simple and fast assembly and tear down, which takes under five minutes, due to the pre-attached poles.  It’s also highly waterproof and is designed as a four-season tent because the WeatherTec system uses a tub-like floor, patented welded corners, and inverted seams to make the tent impermeable to water, and the strong frame is built to withstand winds howling up to 35 mph. Special perks of the Coleman Dark Room Skydome Camping Tent include the namesake Dark Room technology, which effectively blocks 90% of sunlight, reducing heat inside the tent on sweltering summer days. Lastly, the front door is also extra wide to facilitate moving gear in and out of the tent, and there are plenty of internal storage pockets to keep essentials handy.
