Latest Improved 2020 models with handy divider curtain to allow the tent to be separated into sleeping and living area for privacy.
Since its introduction in 2015 the Coleman Cortes Octagon 8 has grown and grown in popularity
Cortes Octagon 8 is a really cleaver design and can be used as a Garden Screen house by simply erecting the tent inner. This gives a 15.7m2 mesh screen house with sewn-in groundsheet and a cleaver hinged entrance door. Ideal to for family gatherings especially in the evening when the little flying insects like to come out and annoy. But by adding the flysheet, you convert the Cortes Octagon 8 into a large one room tent, in a style reminiscent of a Mongolian Yurt.
The big advantage of the design is greatly reduced condensation. The biggest issue with polyester tents is Condensation. The Octagon has a huge area of mesh giving excellent ventilation between the inner tent and the flysheet, greatly reducing condensation.
Its steel octagonal frame is going to ensure this tent will stand up to the weather and with its striking Orange, Blue (Updated Colourway for 2020) or Green colour-way the Cortes Octagon 8 will stand out on any campsite. We really like this tent and its unusual hinged door just adds to the fun.
For 2020 the Blue Octagon 8 in Blue has a new Blue/Lime Colourway. There is also a New Octagon Blackout introducing Coleman Black out Bedroom technology & the Octago a new miniaturised 3 Berth Octagon .
Our Top Choice tent especially for families looking to experience camping for the first time. Easy to Pitch, with a strong steel frame. The octagonal shape makes it ready solid in windy conditions and the excellent ventilation really helps to minimise condensation. Look at the New Octagon Blackout as our top choice for the added advantages of Coleman's Award winning Black-out bedroom.

Feature-Highlights on one view
WeatherTec™ 2000/3000/4000 - waterproof systemA tent’s waterproof properties are measured using a rating called its hydrostatic head. If a tent has a hydrostatic head of 2000/3000/4000mm*, it can hold a 2/3/4 metre* column of water on its surface before any leaks through.
The Ministry of Defence UK classifies a hydrostatic head of 800mm as waterproof.Coleman® uses polyethylene (PE) groundsheets which are relatively heavy but provide guaranteed water protection. PE groundsheets are ideal for family and active tents where a very light weight and small pack size are not essential.*depends on a model
HINGED DOOR - quick and easy to come and goThe patented Hinge Door from Coleman® makes it quick and easy to come and go from your tent. The rigid door and door frame increases the tents structural integrity making it feel more like a home away from home.Ideal for family and group camping, you can close the tent door without needing to zip it, making your tent and belongings more accessible without having everything on display or needing to continually use noisy zippers when coming or going.
Fire Retardant - safety firstThe fire retardant characteristic of our material ensures that the fabric will not flare dangerously out of control and will selfextinguish, giving time to escape in the event of an emergency.
