A rock solid gem

Took this tent camping in 2015 with my 14 year old son and I to Fingal Bay. Hubby couldn't come with us, but we were able to put the tent up easily by ourselves. Storm number 1 hit within 5 mins of set up, but we were warm and dry in the tent. Next night, terrifyingly, we had another torrential downpour and wind gusts up to 60-80 km per hour that severely buffeted our tent around. Thought we would get blown away for sure - it was a pretty awful night. We had no tarp, - but just the fly to protect us. Next day- all the campers and caravans had ripped awnings. leaks and damage and I was proud to say that this remarkable tent held true- not a rip or tear and we were warm and dry. I was pretty amazed to say the least..we still have the tent and take it camping every year to Culburra Beach or 12 nights- it's a great feeling knowing it can withstand major storms. Not only that but the ventilation system in the tent keeps it warm in winter and cool ins summer- don't know how,- but it just does. You don't wake in a stuffy tent. Love this tent.

Sales, price and delivery all no hassles. Mind boggling confusion at first at how to set up but 'read the instructions'. A colour photo of the assembled tent would be helpful. Not real sure how to properly peg the fly down to maximise ventilation while preserving weatherproofing or how to put the awning up. Doesn't seem to be any ropes to guy the awning poles. Biggest disappointments - one of the seams let go during assembly without over stressing. 100mm tear. Will test warranty claims.

Response from Snowys Sep 22 2016

G'day John, I'm sorry to hear one of the seams gave way during setup. Bit unusual for the Chalet 9 - usually fairly bomb-proof. If you have a second, could you please send us an email ( with a couple of photos of the tear? We'd really like to get onto the case right away. Thanks, Laine :)

Excellent Family Trent

This is an awesome tent for our family of 4. Heaps of room, great ventilation in summer, not too cold in winter (as we just found out), also has no trouble in wind or rain. Setup and pack up also very easy for two people.

No hassles

We spent 4 nights at Barwon Heads foreshore at Easter in our new Chalet tent. Set up was very quick after one trial in the backyard at home. Weather was mild so and we only had one night with wind and rain which the tent managed easily. Will be interested to see what happens in difficult conditions. Took me one night to figure out the ventilation which ended up as all flaps open in the tent and all closed on the fly to avoid overheating. All sorts of convenient hooks and pockets available .

Unhappy camper 2

Ok, again.. Great service and delivery! However the main for has a fault! The front and back door are identical and should allow the door to be pinned back leaving the fly screen only to be zipped shut to stop bugs.. However our tents front door has the toggles down on the wrong side so it's impossible to clip the actual door away neatly like every other door/window in the tent... Shame! It's a design fault. Not Snowys fault but there was no time to complain or return.

Response from Snowys Feb 08 2016

This sounds really strange Andy, the Chalet 9 has been made to the same formula for many years and I have never heard of this before. I do apologise, and if this is the case then there is a fault with the tent and we need to make this right for you. We will attempt to get in touch to sort things out. Ben.

great family tent

Our first time camping as a family of 5 and we loved it! The second bedroom space fit a port-a-cot and a double mattress for the big two. There was enough room in the middle section for a table, toys and large eskie. Set up was quick (surprisingly), pack up took a little longer but we cleaned it well before bagging it up so we didn't have to do it again at home. Great tent and we cannot wait to use it again!

Great tent. Great service from Snowys

I ordered this tent last Friday after seeing it on Snowy's for $100 cheaper than anywhere else (plus free delivery).

It arrived on Tuesday (very fast!) so my wife and two small children took it for a spin on the coast for a couple of nights.

This tent sets up very easily and there are loads of features. I had no dramas at all. It sets up just like any other normal dome tent. Its very well ventilated (perhaps a bit too ventilated for cold nights below 10 degrees Celsius).


Led light1 answers

Hi, I also had a look at the colemans site at this tent and they list a permanently attached led light on the chalet tent. I was wondering where this is and how it is permanently attached? Or do you have a version of this tent that doesn't have one, as my friend has this tent and it doesn't have a light. Thanks

- Sydney(3 months ago)

Hi Liz. Thanks for your question. The Chalet 9 CV Family Dome Tent has a small LED light on a lanyard which is placed just inside the door with the function to allow you to find your way inside the tent when it is dark. It isn't really designed as a light that will illuminate your tent at night time, however there are tent lights on the market that can do this for you, or you could simply use a lantern to do the same thing. Companion LED Utility Tent Light would be a good option or the Companion Tent Fan with LED Light for the warmer months of the year.

Which tent has more room this onenor the instant stand up 10 person1 answers

- ROCKHAMPTON, QLD(5 months ago)

Hi Robbie, with both models just keep in mind that the recommended amount of people is more of a guide. While a tent may be able to fit 10 people, it’s likely to be more comfortable with a few less than that. The layout of the Chalet 9 will probably feel more spacious and livable inside as it has three areas that can be sectioned off, whereas there is only one divider inside the Instant Up 10. Keep in mind that the setup of these tents are vastly different - so while space and comfort is important, the Instant Up tent will be a quick set up while the Chalet 9 will take you a longer amount of time.

Is this a instant pop up tent 1 answers

- ROCKHAMPTON, QLD(5 months ago)

G’day Robbie, the Coleman Chalet 9 CV Family Dome Tent is not an instant pop up tent, it’s got a fairly traditional frame so you will need to spend more time on pitching this tent in comparison to the Instant Up range. But the Chalet 9 will perform slightly better in windy conditions so it’s a trade-off between speed of set up and performance in windier weather.

Does the inner-tent have 'solid' (eg vinyl, windproof) covers for all meshed areas?1 answers

So that all windows, and ventilation areas can be sealed in windy weather. Also, the picture suggests the inner doors are solid at the bottom and mesh at the top, is this correct, or is privacy between rooms possible?

- TRINITY GARDENS, SA(6 months ago)

Hi Susie, the tent has waterproof polyester flaps that go over the mesh windows. The skylights can also be zipped up to prevent wind and rain coming in. Privacy is indeed possible as the mesh panel at the top of the doors can be zipped up.

How many pockets does it have inside?1 answers

- Melbourne (7 months ago)
Hi Andrew, there's a pocket in each end room. The pockets are divided into sections - some long and skinny, which would be perfect for storing torches, and some smaller which would be good for the phone or keys. All up there are 9 sections in each pocket.

Shading and light1 answers

I have small children who nap and are sensitive to light (wake up as soon as they see sunlight). I'm wondering how dark the tent is or if there is an accessorie I can purchase that we can drape etc to make the children's room darker?

- FAIRFIELD, NSW(12 months ago)
There are no 'off-the-shelf' solutions to your query Marta, you could lay an extra layer of fabric such as an old bedsheet between the fly and inner tent to block out more light. The tent itself is reasonably dark, but nowhere near as dark as a room in a house with blockout curtains. Canvas tents block more light, but these are bulkier to handle and come at extra cost. Give us a call if you would like to discuss the best solution for you, 1300 914 007.

How long does it take to set this tent up?1 answers

Is it a great deal harder than the easy up range? I'm wanting best value for money and not to complicated for set up

- MILTON, QLD(1 year ago)
Hi Nat, this tent isn't difficult to pitch, it just takes longer than the Instant Up range. You certainly get more tent for your dollar when you purchase a traditional framed tent with flexible fibreglass poles rather than the instant up frames. They tend to perform better in wind and are easier to repair given they don't need specific brackets or steel pole parts. It is always a trade off, but if you want the best tent space for your dollar, the Chalet 9 is a good choice.

Replacement parts1 answers

Hello! Just wondering about buying this tent. We are in Melbourne. In the hopefully unlikely event that something breaks how do we go with replacement parts or warranty issues? Also - just wondering how easy it is to get the tent back into the bag?

- FRANKSTON SOUTH, VIC(1 year ago)
Coleman warrants this tent for 3 years (materials & workmanship) however they also offer some spare parts should you require: In terms of warranty claims, generally you can take your item with proof of purchase to most major retailers who stock the brand to have it processed. To get the tent back in the bag, folding rather than scrunching generally ensures an easier fit. Hope this helps.
