New Instant Tent

Check out the new Coleman Instant Tent , 60 seconds for set up for two people . I thought that it might be food for thought for some of you .

Re: New Instant Tent

What I want is a 10 second setup awning for one to be used as a changing station after hiking or kayaking in the rain... For when I am not in the van, of course.

How about the Outback Porta Privy? Pops up in seconds, folds up almost as quickly (once you've figured it out the first time!!)

Cheers,
Mike.

You are way ahead of me. Everytime I fold it, it's simply luck if it goes- sometimes seconds, sometimes after 10 minutes I walk away and come back. I've tried every technique I can think of, but usually when it folds I can't remember exactly what I just did!

Re: New Instant Tent

I've seen something like this in a lot of photos here on the forum. This could actually work, and it's even tall enough for me. Now I know where to buy it. Thanks!



Jage - have a mini tent for the kiddo that is the same way. Somehow we always get it back in its bag, but I'm never sure how it happened.

Haha! Yeah, I've had a few of those battles. It usually puts up a good fight the first time I pull it out in the spring, until I figure out the trick again

Re: New Instant Tent

I love the Outback Porta-Privy as well. Setup couldn't be any faster. Usually it folds back up easily, however I've also had those occasions where I felt like I was trying to solve a Rubik cube.
