After hours in the car with a bunch of grumpy and WIFI- deprived vacationers, the last thing you want to do is make them wait while you spend the next hour figuring out how to put up your brand new tent.

With the latest Instant Up Silver 6P tent from Coleman, even the most impatient beginner can get this tent up and running in no time as the frame is connected and pre-attached. All you have to do is lay it down, spread out the fabric and extend the poles out from the hub until it locks into place. Then you can just chuck the waterproof fly over the top, so you can get a good night’s sleep knowing you won’t get soaked in the rain.

The interior is spacious, with enough floor space to fit in 2 queen sized mattresses and head room to stand up. For the camping novice, or those on a time sensitive schedule you can’t go past an easy-use model like the Instant Up.

  • Steel instant up frame
  • Waterproof fly
  • 3 interior adjustable windows
  • Tested in 80kph wind conditions

Bought this 6P tent to explore the outbacks with family of 04 inclu. 2 teens. It was great. Easy to transport/setup and take down. It did hold its grip during some strong winds and kept us dry. The only drawback was the poles for the awnings which kept dropping during strong winds.

Got the 6 people tent just for me and my partner. It's perfect size, gives us enough room to have bags etc inside the tent and comfortable space to move around in. It's a very easy tent to set up ( bf did it alone whilst I was drinking wine and it took him max 5 minutes..) Great price and fast delivery - highly recommended, thank you Snowys!

Excellent tent and great staff

The staff were knowledgeable and the shipping was quick.

The tent was fantastic. It's both easy to setup and take down. It's spacious inside and is tall enough for you to stand up inside. The windows and screens have good airflow. There were a few nice features such as a clip on the ceiling in the centre of the tent to hang a light, a few pockets to put phones etc and an area to bring in a electric cord. It's a bit long when it's packed but if you're not backpacking into a site this wouldn't be an issue.

Instant Coleman Tent

This is amazingly quick to erect, and guess what NO arguing...It fits our 2 King Goanna Stretcher beds with room to move, great innovation in tenting.

5 star 6 man pop up tent from Coleman

Snowy's delivered our Coleman 6 man pop up tent within a week and true to other reviews this is a super easy tent to put up and down. Takes up a bit of space in the car but worth it for the extra room you get once the tent is up! We easily fitted a double bed mattress, porticot, chair and plenty of room for bags. No worries that there's no annex as the internal is spacey enough and the outside awning gives extra room under cover. Very family friendly.

Weather conditions 1 answer

Is this suitable autumn or winter whether condition ?

- Carlton (6 months ago)

G'day Gary, 

You sure could use the Instant Up 6 in autumn or winter, although you might want to consider the Instant Up Gold 6 - as this tent has a higher waterhead rating of 3000mm compared to 1500 for the standard Instant Up - so it might be a better option if you are planning on camping in areas that get a bit more rain.

what size tarp would you use?1 answer

what size tarp would you use underneath as a protector?

- 3089(7 months ago)

G'day Col, 

A popular tarp that we recommend for general use is the Ultramesh Tarp from Oztrail, for the Instant UP 6 there are two size options depending on how you want to set up your tent. 

If you want the tarp to just cover the underside of your Instant Up, then the 3.65 x 3.65 tarp is a good size for that. 

If you want the tarp to cover the area under awning of your tent, then the 3.05 x 4.88m size is what you should go for.

Purchase another flyover0 answers

Hi, I was wondering if you stocked replacement flyovers for this tent? We have the older version flyover that doesn't completely cover the tent, but its getting a couple holes in it. How much would it cost?

What is the differences between the Silver Series and the Gold Series?1 answer

I would like to know the differences between the Coleman Silver Series and the Coleman Gold Series?

- Buderim(12 months ago)

Hi Mel,

That's a great question! Essentially the Instant Up Gold range is slightly more heavy duty than the Instant Up Silver range. 

The Gold has a higher waterhead rating at 3000mm, stronger PVC floor, comes with an additional oversized 3 pole awning for the left or right side, and features slightly finer mesh.

I think that covers everything, but feel free let us know if you have any more queries about the range.

what accessories do i need for proper/ complete pegging down1 answer

I would like to know if all the pegs and guy ropes are included for complete pegging down of the tent. if i need any pegs, guy ropes, how many should i get?

- west wodonga(1 year ago)

G'day Tom, 

The Coleman Instant Up 6P tent comes with guy lines attached, and with pegs included - so you don't need to purchase anything seperately. As long as you peg everything out firmly you shouldn't have any issues with the stability of your Instant Up.

Is this the 2017 model?1 answer

G’day Matt, the model that we are selling is indeed the latest 2016/17 Instant Up from Coleman.

what is the difference between the 2 coleman tents priced at $299 & $2591 answer

i did ask earlier, however your answer then, still leaves me guessing on what im wanting to buy ??

- BUSSELTON, WA(1 year ago)

Hi Kev, I’m sorry you didn’t get the answer you were looking for originally, I can’t explain what happened there but I’ll try and sort this out for you now. The New Instant Up is replacing the older clearance model, the only difference is a colour update and price. Regarding general features - if you’re looking for a family/group tent that is really easy to pitch, roomy, and good value - then the Instant Up would be a good choice. If you want to talk through the range or we haven’t answered your question in full, give us a call 1300 914 007 and one of our sales staff will be more than happy to help. Make sure you mention this inquiry to the person you speak to.

Are there any new features in the new range or is it just about aesthetics?1 answer

Have you any details about the new range to add apart from the photos? It appears to be a refresh in look only.

- SYDNEY, NSW(1 year ago)

Hi Michael, the Instant Up is still the exact same much-loved model as it has always been, but now with a refreshed colour scheme.
