There’s no excuse to stay indoors on your devices over a long weekend, when you can set up your outdoor sleeping quarters in under 2 minutes. With the Coleman Instant Up, all you have to do is lay the tent down, spread the fabric out and extend the poles until they lock into place. Simply throw the waterproof fly over the tent and you’re ready to start settling in for a peaceful and dry night's sleep.

Three large mesh windows with roll up flaps keep the tent cool during the day, and maintain a steady flow of air at night. The Instant Up has a roomy interior with headspace for even the tallest user, which leaves plenty of room to stand up in and enough floor space to fit a queen air bed.

For a trouble-free set up on your next weekend away, you can’t go past a simple shelter like the Coleman Instant Up.

  • Steel instant up frame
  • Waterproof fly
  • 3 interior adjustable windows
  • Cord management for lantern
  • Fits 1 queen air bed
  • Includes carry bag

So easy, great quality

Strong fabric, ridiculously easy to set up which is worth the extra weight and size when packed up. Folding out the knuckles is disconcerting (at first it seems like you are breaking it). Not having to thread tent poles thru sleeves is awesome. Cannot fault the price and service from Snowys, just brilliant.

Great Tent, Great Company:))

Easy Peasy to erect :)) we camped out lately on the banks of the Hume, (maiden voyage for the instant up 4) it was quite wild and windy that night. It handled a rather a large storm. Not a drip anywhere and although the people camped nearby had to pack up due to a broken pole, we just battened down. :)) We were very impressed..

So easy to erect and very spacious

This is my first 4 man tent so I'm not sure whether the packed up size is normal or not (seems a little long and heavy to me) but if the reason for that is that the poles are built in then I'll accept it as it's so easy to put up. around 2-3 mins is right. Zips are great, size is terrific and entry is easy. The number of hooks and storage pockets inside are terrific as are the windows.

Hi, it seems that every time my family and I go camping, the sun goes camping too and we are left with rain, rain and more rain, one could even include high winds. We have had poles break, water seep up through the floor along with rips in the walls. Would this tent be suitable or is it more for nicer camping weather? Thanks.

G'day Marianne,

I'm sorry to hear that you've had a few mishaps with your tents in the past, but it's good to hear you're willing to give camping another go!

The Instant Up Silver 4P will perform slightly better than the average family dome tent, and it has a few features that help to combat bad weather conditions such as a waterhead rating of 1500mm, Polyethelene floor, and a sturdy steel frame. 

I would say though, that if you are worried about wet and windy conditions, the Instant Up Gold range has slightly heavier duty features which include a higher waterhead rating at 3000mm, and a stronger PVC floor so that may be a good option for you. 

If you're still feeling unsure about what tent is best for your family, feel free to give us a call on 1300 914 007 and one of our customer service staff will be happy to talk you through the range.

Roof1 answers

Is the inside roof of the tent a thin mesh?

- Melbourne (4 weeks ago)

G'day El,

I've just had a look at our display model, and the inner tent's roof is made from 150 denier polyester. There are mesh panels on the doors and windows, but they can be closed off with solid panels if need be.

Is this the latest model?1 answers

Is the sale for the 2017 model?

G'day Greg,

I've just double checked in our system, and I can confirm that the Instant Up models that we are selling are definitely the 2017 models from Coleman.

tent toof for 2016 model1 answers

Hi there. Just confirming that the 2016 model has a polyester roof panel instead of mesh as in the previous model? Thanks.

- viewbank(1 month ago)

G'day Julie, 

I've just confirmed on our display model that the Coleman Instant Up tents have a polyester inner (including roof) and fly. There are mesh windows and doors but they can be closed off as there are solid zippered doors on each opening.

What model is this tent?1 answers

Is this the 2016-17 model?

- Melbourne(3 months ago)

G’day Cloe, the Instant Up 4P is indeed the 2016 model from Coleman’s range. Coleman don’t usually update their Instant Ups annually, so this one should stay the latest version for the near future.

Awning2 answers

Hi, could you please advise the width of the front of the awning (pole to pole) and the length of the awning from the pole back to the tent ? Does the awning have any side walls available ? Does the front opening have a zip up door to close up the tent with the awning still up ?

- YALLINGUP , WA(4 months ago)

Hi Simon, we don’t have an Instant Up 4P up currently, but we plan to do so today so I will get back to you as soon as possible about your first two questions. In answer to your other questions, the awning has no side walls. The inner tent has both a mesh and solid door that zip up completely so when the awning is up you can still have privacy and light rain protection. As the awning is part of the fly you can’t have the fly zipped up when the awning is extended.

- Snowys(4 months ago)

G’day Simon, the tent is now up on the floor so I’ve been able to get those measurements for you. The width of the awning from pole to pole is 1.3m, and the length from the extended awning to the back of the tent is 4.2 metres (the tent measures 2.4m and the extended awning is 1.8m). Thanks so much for bearing with us while we got the answer for you!
