From the electrical access port to the vented Cool-Air port, the Coleman WeatherMaster 8 tent is packed with features for comfort and convenience at the campsite. The WeatherMaster 8 is outfitted with Coleman's exclusive WeatherTec system, a series of technical features intended to protect you from inclement weather and nasty storms. WeatherTec tents are built with a coated polyester fabric combined with anti-wicking thread, webbing, and zippers, all designed to keep you dry when the rain comes down. The tent's welded waterproof floor and inverted floor seams, meanwhile, dramatically increase the water resistance by hiding the needle holes inside the tent and away from the elements. And in addition to offering fully taped rainfly seams, the included rainfly covers the doors and windows tightly and incorporates easy-to-use Velcro frame attachments. Add in a strong, wind-responsive frame--which uses redesigned poles and guy-out triangles to anchor the tent--and you have a shelter that performs like a brick house during a storm. In fact, Coleman is so confident in its WeatherTec system that it exposes its WeatherTec tents to a rain room that simulates nasty downpours, and to a wind machine capable of blowing hurricane-force gusts. The results? Even after the tests, Coleman guarantees its WeatherTec tents will keep you dry.
The WeatherMaster 8 boasts a footprint of 14 by 9 feet and a center height of 82 inches, helping up to eight people sleep comfortably in the tent with elbowroom to spare. Campers have their choice of sleeping in one large room or dropping down the zippered divider and sleeping in two. As an alternative, they can use one room as a bedroom and the second for gear and food storage. Campers will also love the Coleman Variflo adjustable ventilation system, which lets you control the airflow in conjunction with the vented Cool-Air port. Other features include an easy-to-set-up design with continuous color-coded pole sleeves and shock-corded poles; reverse angle windows; a privacy vent window; an interior gear pocket; an electrical access port; and easy-to-follow instructions sewn into the durable carrying bag, which comes with extra storage bags for the poles and stakes.
The tent's generous sleeping area accommodates up to 8 people.

More than 100 years ago, a young man with an entrepreneurial spirit and a better idea began manufacturing lanterns in Wichita, Kansas. His name was W.C. Coleman, and the company he founded would change life in America. A man plagued with such poor vision he sometimes had to ask classmates to read aloud to him, Coleman saw a brilliant light in 1900 in a drugstore window that stopped him in his tracks. He inquired about the light inside and discovered he was able to read even the small print on a medicine bottle by the illumination. The lamps had mantles, not wicks, and were fueled by gasoline under pressure instead of coal oil. Soon afterward, Coleman started a lighting service that offered a "no light, no pay" clause--a big step forward for merchants who were burned by inferior products that rarely worked--and drew substantial interest from businesses that wanted to keep their lights on after dark.
In the ensuing years, Coleman expanded its product line well beyond lanterns. The company's current catalog is thick with products that make spending time outdoors a pleasure. There are coolers that keep food and drinks cold for days on end, comfortable airbeds that won't deflate during the night, a complete line of LED lights that last for years, powerful portable grills that cook with an authentic open-grill flame, and much, much more. Coleman has truly fashioned much of our outdoor camping experience, and expects to do so for generations to come.
