There’s nothing worse than fussing with poles and pegs when you’re dealing with a bunch of cold, hungry and Wi-Fi deprived campers after a 4-hour trip. With the latest Instant Up Silver 8P tent from Coleman, you'll have everyone warm and under cover in under 2 minutes.

All you have to do is lay the tent down, spread out the fabric, and extend the poles out until it locks into place. Then you can throw the waterproof fly over the top so you can good night’s sleep knowing you won’t wake up to a soggy tent in the morning.

If the weather is warm the mesh windows will provide a nice air flow, while preventing condensation building up at night when you're all zipped up. With a roomy interior that can fit 2 queen air beds and enough room to stand up in you can really make this little space feel like home.

  • Steel instant up frame
  • Waterproof fly
  • 3 interior adjustable windows
  • Cord management for lantern
  • Fits 2 queen air beds
  • Includes carry bag

Great Value Tent

I loved the hassle free purchase of this product online. I was a bit scared of purchasing an expensive and bulky item, but the communication was great, the delivery was quick and I was excited to use the tent. They even included a card thanking you for purchasing off them and a naf hiking and camping checklist.
The description is spot on, it goes up fast, longer for the fly and to peg it out properly, but no greater than 20 minutes in total. We had some decent wind on the 3rd night of a camping trip, but I guyed out every line including the windows and the thing stayed put and water tight. My only concern was a tear in the no-seem em mesh that I did not notice when I did the test erecting of the tent at home. Despite this, the crew at Snowys, in particular Corey, guided me through the process of resolution with a great outcome in a swift manner. Would I recommend the tent? As a first timer, yes!, it will certainly fulfill mine and the family's needs. Would I recommend Snowys? In.A.Hearbeat!!. They are price competitive, they know their stuff, they value their customers and they are easy to deal with.

Warranty details 1 answers

Could you please provide more detail on the length of warranty and what it covers. Will it cover wind damage like a torn sheet or a broken / bent pole?

- Melbourne (2 weeks ago)

G'day Roger,

The Instant Up 8P tent from Coleman has a 1-year warranty that covers manufacturing defects, but it won’t cover normal wear and tear or misuse of the tent – so storm damage isn’t covered.

But if you have any trouble at all, even after the one year period - just bring it back to us and we will sort if all out for you Roger.

I am new to camping and am not sure what tent to purchase.1 answers

Which is a better tent, this one or the oztrail fast frame cruiser? Thanks

- Terrigal NSW(2 weeks ago)

G'day Jenny,

We find that the Instant Up range is very popular with those just starting out in camping – and that’s because they’re extremely easy to set up, and quite reliable.  

The Fast Frame Tourer range is very new to us (we’ve only got the Fast Frame Tourer tents, not the Cruisers just to clarify) so we don’t have as much feedback on durability. It does have an easy to pitch frame, and the specs are quite similar to the Instant Up – but with that significant price difference, you can’t go past the Instant Ups for value for money.

As you’re new to camping, I’d say the safer bet is the Instant Up – they’re reliable, good value, and we get a lot of positive feedback on the range.

Do I need to buy a tarp?1 answers

Not sure if the floor is waterproof. Will consider buying gold 8 person if there is one available.

- Telopea(2 months ago)

Hi Nana, 

The floor of the Coleman Instant Up Silver is most definitely made from a waterproof Polyethelene material. In general we do like to recommend using a tarp with all tents as it never hurts to have an extra layer of protection for your tent. 

I've just checked with the stock manager, and he says taht we are actually expecting the Instant Up Gold 8P to arrive in our warehouse in in the next few days, so this tent will be available very soon. 

If you like, you can give us a call on 1300 914 007 and ask to speak to our customer support team who can sort a phone order out for you in advance, otherwise we will be reactivating this product online as soon as it arrives.

Do you take the fly off when packing down the tent? 1 answers

Some people have told me to leave the fly on the tent when packing it away. I don't want to do this if it's going to ruin the tent. Should I take the fly off when packing away?

- Oakdale(4 months ago)

Hi Bec, we wouldn’t recommend keeping the fly on when you pack down the Instant Up 8P from Coleman because the knuckles on the frame of this tent fold up, so there’s a chance that the fly material may get caught and cause a bit of damage – which is the last thing you want! The Instant Up range super easy to put up and take down, so it won’t take you too much extra time at all.

Room Divider1 answers

Is there a room divider in the middle

- Coomera(5 months ago)

G’day Marty, the Instant Up 8P Tent does indeed have a room divider, but it's more of a privacy screen as it doesn’t connect to the floor of the tent. If you want to see what it looks like pitched, the fifth image linked on the product description gives you a pretty good idea of what the divider looks like when you’re inside the tent.

Do the windows have no see um mesh?1 answers

- Coeinda(5 months ago)

G’day Shane, the Coleman Instant Up 8P tent has both mesh and solid panels (that can be zipped open or shut) on the door and windows. No-See-Um Mesh is Coleman’s term for tightly woven mesh that is breathable and will keep out insects. This term isn’t used in the latest information provided by the supplier, instead the Instant Up is described as having ‘ultra-fine’ mesh – but they are essentially the same thing. I’ve had a look at the tent myself, and the mesh is definitely fine enough to keep out mosquitoes while still providing plenty of airflow inside the tent.

Coleman 8p popup tent2 answers

Reviews for this tent indicate that the carry bag is extremely tight and it's impossible to put the tent back once it has been used. Does Coleman provide additional bags or are there additional bags we can buy? We are replacing our current tent that causes us great frustration with setting up and I'm hoping this tent won't cause us frustration from another angle - packing up and I'm happy to do whatever to avoid the possibility.

- DONVALE, VIC(5 months ago)

Hi Pina, I've packed up a few of these and had no problems fitting it back into its carry bag - and I'm a shocker when it comes to packing tents! Coleman don't supply tent bags on their own unfortunately. A double size swag bag could be an option, if you did want a slightly larger bag than what the tent comes in. If you pop the code 40759 into the search box at the top of our site you'll be able to have a look. I hope this helps! :)

- Snowys(5 months ago)

I have this tent and I put it up and down on my own, including the fly. The tent bag is actually very large and I have never had a problem fitting it the bag. I just read the instructions the other week when camping and it actually says when packing away to place the fly inside the tent. It was a little harder to get in the bag but it still fit no problems.
