COLE­MAN IN­STANT DOME 5

Go! Camp & Drive - - Contents -

This is the only tent we tested that uses an ex­ter­nal frame. Af­ter some ini­tial frus­tra­tion with the in­struc­tions (it’s not that in­stant), it took us about two min­utes to set up. We pushed out the fold­ing “joints” and pulled the ex­tend­able legs out to the lock­ing po­si­tion, and that was all she wrote. An av­er­age-sized per­son can al­most stand upright, and even though the man­u­fac­turer claims it can sleep five, there’s le­git­i­mate space in­side for four peo­ple. It fea­tures a built-in 75 D Taf­feta fly­sheet with a WeatherTec sys­tem to keep the wa­ter out, and a 1 000D poly­eth­yl­ene ground sheet. With steel and fi­bre­glass used in its con­struc­tion, it’s also fairly heavy at 6 kg. Di­men­sions 3 000 x 2 130 x 1 670 mm Price R2 399 at Trap­pers go! Drive & Camp says You have to ex­tend and click cer­tain legs into place. The frame does the rest.
