New for 2020 the Octagon 8 gets treated to the Black-out treatment.
Black-out bedrooms from Coleman block out over 99% of light and regulates temperature. Keeping your tent up to 5°C cooler during the day and up to 1°C warmer during the night. This allows you to sleep for longer, as well as giving a more comfortable environment inside the tent.
The Octagon BlackOut is a really clever 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 clever 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 Octagon BlackOut 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 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.
A big upgrade for the Best Selling Octagon 8 making it far more comfortable due to the Black Out technology that will allow you to stay in bed longer and give a more comfortable camping environment. Well worth considering the extra cost over the standard Octagon 8. we really liked the lighting effected created inside by the colour of the zip fabric during the day.

Manage the temperatureKeep your bedroom up to 5°C cooler during the day and up to 1°C warmer during the night. Coleman® patent pending BlackOut Bedroom® helps you to manage the temperature in your bedroom by storing energy from the sun in the surface of the fabric.
WeatherTec™ - offering comfort and protection when enjoying the outdoorsA fabric's waterproof properties are measured using a rating called its hydrostatic head. If a tent has a hydrostatic head of 3000mm it means that a 3 metre column of water can be placed on its surface before any drops will show through the underside of the fabric. (The Ministry of Defence in the UK classifies fabric with a hydrostatic head of 800mm+ as waterproof).There are many other factors which influence the performance of tent in tough weather conditions. Coleman use the latest technology and a rigorous testing regime to ensure that we keep you protected at all times - whatever the weather.
UV Guard™ Sun ProtectionCertified laboratory testing proves Coleman® UVGuard™ protection fabrics with an SPF50 provide excellent protection against the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Proper use of sunscreen combined with shelters made with UVGuard™ protection fabric can go a long way in the battle against sunburn and UV exposure.
Fire Retardant - safety first!The fire retardant characteristic of our material ensures that the fabric will not flare dangerously out of control and will self extinguish, giving time to escape in the event of an emergency.
