One of our preferred designs, an easy to pitch tunnel style tent with a vertical front wall with rainsafe canopy. This means that in poor weather especially rain the front door has some protection so you can enter and exit the tent with less water getting onto he groundsheet. Especially important as this tent in common with the vast majority of tents on the market has a sewn in groundsheet, so once water gets in to the tent you have got to mop it up. The groundsheet below the front door also flaps down making it less of a trip hazard and add entry and exit useful for children, prams and wheelchairs.
This easy to pitch tunnel tent uses fibreglass poles that slide into Mesh Pole sleeves. This is a feature normally only found on expensive mountain tents to reduce buffeting by the wind. The wind goes through the mesh rather than pushing against a solid fabric pole sleeve. The Polyester flysheet has a 4500mm Hydrostatic Head and UV protection as well as the usual taped seams so should give a good life span to the tent.
Another Coleman Feature that is hardly mentioned is the Zip park feature. The Zips in the bedroom compartments are designed so the zip pullers always end up in the same position when the doors are closed. This is a safety feature in case you need to exit the tent in an emergency, you will always know where the zip puller is for a quick escape. This is also at a height so the smaller children can reach it. A simple but important feature.
The big buying feature is Coleman’s Blackout Bedrooms. Most other manufacturers incorporate a darkened fabric into the inner tents of their tents, that just filter some light out of the bedroom area. Coleman have patented a System that incorporates a totally different type of fabric. This not only totally blocks out 99% of Light but also creates a temperature differential. This is claimed to keep the bedroom 5o cooler during the day and 1o warmer at night. The Blackout Bedroom feature has already won awards and as CAMPING MAGAZINE EDITOR’S CHOICE as the BEST CAMPING INNOVATION of 2016.
A nice sized living area should ensure a comfortable holiday.
Good valve for money with several features, especially Black-Out Bedrooms not found on other brands.
What the manufacturer says:-
The Rocky Mountain 5 Plus is a spacious, easy to pitch, family tunnel tent, offering you a comfortable home-from-home in the great outdoors.
The large living area is spacious enough to take a family table and chairs, it also features large PVC windows with covers, offering the ultimate balance of light and privacy.
For easy access and exit the tent has an ingenious full-height door with a drop-down section providing a totally flat entrance, perfect for buggies, wheelchairs and to prevent family members from tripping on entry and exit.
The impressive 4500mm hydrostatic head rating on the flysheet combined with the strong and waterproof PE groundsheet will ensure that you stay dry, whatever the weather, and the porch over the door gives shelter while you unzip your tent door.

Manage the temperature

WeatherTec™ - offering comfort and protection when enjoying the outdoors.
A 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 Protection.
Certified 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.
