Coleman Hooligan 4 Tent
Let me start out by saying that if you are looking for a good and cheap tent rated for 4 people, the Coleman Hooligan 4 Tent may be exactly the tent that you are looking for. I’m going to emphasize cheap here because at the time of this writing, you can buy this Coleman Hooligan 4 Tent for about $90. Now that is cheap for a brand name tent any way you want to look at it. If you opt for the Coleman Hooligan 2 tent, then you are talking about a really cheap under $50 price tag. You can’t get much cheaper than that.
Coleman Hooligan 4 Tent Features And Specifications
This Coleman Hooligan 4 Tent is a 3 season tent that claims it will sleep 4 campers comfortably in it’s 63 square foot footprint. I think that this is really better suited for a maximum of 3 campers in my opinion, unless you like to be really snug. I guess the people who size these things must be pretty small in stature. It is a fairly simple tent to set up with it’s 2 pole, dome structure. The center height of this tent is a non claustrophobic 58 inches high. It has one entrance door with a vestibule.
The tent itself is made almost entirely from a polyester mesh with a polyethylene floor. The full fly is a polyester taffeta that should keep you dry in all weather conditions. It has Coleman’s Variflo adjustable ventilation system along with an accessible window that will ensure good ventilation. With that much airflow, condensation should not be a problem. Coleman’s WeatherTec system guarantees that you will stay dry. Although they rate this as a 3 season tent,I think that this tent is much more suited for the warmer camping nights of spring and summer. I would bet that it can get pretty chilly in this tent on a cool autumn night.
Coleman Hooligan 4 Tent Set Up
Set up of the Hooligan 4 is pretty straightforward. It’s easy setup with continuous pole sleeves and color coded, shock corded poles. It comes with a carrying bag that has the setup instructions sewing into the bag for reference. Although the floor is pretty strong, it never hurts to have an additional optional footprint or tarp underneath your tent just in case.
The Conclusion On The Coleman Hooligan 4
If you are an occasional camper, looking for an inexpensive tent that will keep you dry from the elements, then for the money, this Coleman Hooligan 4 Tent or any of the other Coleman Hooligan models are well worth the price. If you are a serious camper, a serious backpacker, then I don’t need to tell you to look elsewhere. This is not the lightest, nor the best quality tent that is made. But, for the amount of money that it costs, the Coleman Hooligan 4 Tent is a very decent buy.
