Coleman Bayside 8 person Family Tent


Cole­man Bay­side 8 peo­ple Fam­ily Tent (Orange)

Coleman Bayside 8-Person Family Tent - Orange

Cole­man Bay­side 8-Person Fam­ily Tent — Orange

Mate­r­ial and Characteristics:

The Cole­man Bay­side 8 Per­son Fam­ily Tent
is dome shaped and can accom­mo­date eight peo­ple. This is a USP of the prod­uct. The dome

shape is dif­fer­ent from the con­i­cal shape one asso­ciates with a tent.

It includes a “den” area for keep­ing pets and other goods, so, it takes care of you and your

belong­ings in a com­plete way indeed.

75 poly­ester mate­r­ial cou­pled with taped seams, welded floor seams and rain fly shel­ter you

from rain and mois­ture. The tent has orga­nizer pock­ets, which are great for stor­ing your var­i­ous camp­ing acces­sories. Mesh win­dows are good for air flow and tak­ing in the out­door aro­mas. The elec­tri­cal port is ideal  for the music sys­tems or heaters. The kids gotta have their ipods and smart phones every­where they go these days.

Access gear and cool Air-port with adjustable vent­ing sys­tem con­trols air flow. This is a refresh­ing char­ac­ter­is­tic. Patented hinged door gives quick and easy access inside and out­side. A chain door may have

got stuck!

Has a strong steel and fiber glass frame that should stand up to most light to mod­er­ate winds.

It fits 2 queen sized air beds, quite a com­fort­able idea.

It has a snag free set up in just 15 min­utes. Quick set up another USP.

Has lim­ited 5 year manufacturer’s warranty.

Water­proof rat­ing 800mm. Rain fly water­proof rat­ing –800 mm. It is also flame retardant.

The ceil­ing is all screen  which is wel­com­ing to sun shine and moon light and

star gaz­ing from indoors.

Item weight – 23.2 pounds and ship­ping weight– 25.7 pounds.

3.7÷10 is what this prod­uct has achieved on the basis of aver­age cus­tomer reviews.

A round up: Cole­man is a well known com­pany cater­ing to the needs of pic­nic or hitch hiking


The whole pack­age includes, ground stakes, rain­fly and a car­ry­ing bag. It has two rooms. Floor

mate­r­ial is poly­eth­yl­ene, while the ceil­ing mate­r­ial is poly­ester. The pole mate­r­ial is fiber glass.

The tent door is D shaped and hinged. It has one door and two win­dows. It meets CPAI –84

flam­ma­bil­ity require­ments. Here the pos­i­tiv­ity of this point may be dis­cussed a bit in detail. You

can air dry or wipe it with a damp cloth. Quite a clean­ing up in a fast way. Cen­ter height is 72.0

inches. Has a color coded assem­bly system.

Flip side: It is a good sum­mer tent, but not made for the harsh winds of win­ter. The fiber glass

poles can­not with­stand harsh winds, as they bend a lot and are liable to snap. The fiber glass

poles may be sub­sti­tuted with some­thing stronger.

We can­not pos­si­bly talk about the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier fam­ily tent with­out list­ing its many ben­e­fits. In the first place, this tent is extremely large, pro­vid­ing a huge amount of space that can eas­ily accom­mo­date up to 14 peo­ple. If you plan to bring your whole fam­ily with you, then this option is ver­sa­tile, allow­ing you to get as much room as you want or need for feel­ing com­fort­able dur­ing your camp­ing trip. The tent is divided into two main “rooms,” which can be sep­a­rated through a zipped poly­ester wall, so every­one can enjoy a few moments of quiet­ness and inti­macy.
For those campers who want to go out­side dur­ing the sum­mer, the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier is built with a con­ve­nient open mesh design that will enhance ven­ti­la­tion, as well as a solar shield that will pre­vent direct sun expo­sure and will keep the tent cool. With sev­eral mesh win­dows that can be zipped and unzipped as needed, the tent cre­ates opti­mal con­di­tions for happy camp­ing, help­ing all campers avoid poten­tial issues. There­fore, all win­dows can be unzipped dur­ing the day, when tem­per­a­tures are hot, and zipped dur­ing the night, when the weather is cooler and mos­qui­toes are eagerly wait­ing to bother you.
Fur­ther­more, the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier is ideal dur­ing windy, rainy or stormy weather con­di­tions, because it comes along with guy ropes that will help you secure it into place. Improper secu­rity is the pri­mary dis­ad­van­tage of most tents, and this is what makes the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier stand out among other items of its kind. With a con­ve­nient wall height and a large 7’ cen­ter, the tent will allow you to eas­ily move inside the tent with­out hav­ing to arch your back and poten­tially expe­ri­ence dis­com­fort of even back pain.
Avail­able in two col­ors (green and red), the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier sells for $249.00 at Ama­zon, but can be found on sev­eral other online stores, as well. Due to the many fea­tures it comes with, this tent can be the per­fect choice for your camp­ing needs, offer­ing every­thing it takes to make your camp­ing expe­ri­ence memorable.



In terms of draw­backs, there is not much to say about the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier. The tent fab­ric itself is very thin indeed, which might poten­tially lead to rip­ping or tear­ing it apart acci­den­tally. More­over, the tent floor is made from the same mate­r­ial as a tarp, which makes it rather poor and inap­pro­pri­ate when adults, chil­dren and dogs are around. You might also find it very noisy to walk on, which might suc­cess­fully wake you up in the night when some­one attempts to use the toilet.

Final Thoughts

Even if it has a cou­ple of draw­backs, the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier still remains a solid and reli­able tent to choose when you go on camp­ing. Pro­vided that it comes with so many ben­e­fi­cial fea­tures and a con­ve­nient price value, the tent will offer you pro­tec­tion and com­fort, enhanc­ing your expe­ri­ence and allow­ing you to spend mem­o­rable moments with your beloved ones. Be sure to order it from a depend­able online seller, to avoid mak­ing point­less invest­ments and get the high­est quality.
