24 weeks pregnant this tent is amazing!

This tent is worth every penny!
I camp with my horses in the high country.
After researching for over a year i bit the bullet and brought my instint up gold.
This tent is every think it said and more.
I was able to put it up with in mins all by my self even with my now quiet larger baby bump in the way.
With its air flow system my tent didnt over heat through the day and i didnt frezze over night when thr temp dropped. We had rain the secound day and no leaks at all.
I had to pack it up wet. But was surprised again at how easy it was to put down. My only trouble was trying toget it to fit back in its bag.
But huge hit. Well wort the money and cant recommend it more highly.
I was able to set it up to dry out in our yard when we got home to dry out. My 2 year old daughter had her way with it. If it can stand up to a 2 year old no problem there is nothing that this tent cant with stand.
Thank you Snowys as well for your amazing customer service. I will defiantly be using you again.

Very easy to set up

For two people it's really spacious. We loved how fast we were settling in each camping area. If you love to change your sites quite often, this would be one of the best choices.

Quick, easy and reliable! Best value for money!

I’ve had this amazing tent for nearly 2 years now and I’ve been pleasantly surprised at what it’s been able to handle on many of our family camping trips. I highly suggest having a second person to help set it up as the fly can be tricky trying to get it over the top by yourself (esp when windy). Speaking of wind though, this tent has proved itself in up to 60km/hr winds at the Port Fairy Folk Festival and complete down pours of rain. Everything inside has remained bone dry. I feel like my partner and I are glamping when we use this tent. We pair it with the Exped Mega mat and an eggshell mattress with plenty of room on both sides for us to place our clothes bags and other gear. The front vestibule keeps shoes dry just outside of the tent when the front awning is zipped up. The pockets on each side of the tent are handy and the PVC flooring gives you confidence in any weather situation. I’m approx 160cm and can stand up easily in the tent which is great for getting changed in. The windows are large to get air moving around in the summer and zip up well to keep you warm and dry in winter. I’ve never had any problems with flies or mosquitos getting through the fly screen. I’m thinking of getting the awning attachment for the side of this tent. It’d be cool if Snowy’s could attach the link for it? Buy this tent, you won’t be disappointed!

Great tent

Set the tent up for the first time this weekend. Tent goes up very easy but had a bit of trouble with the fly. I was on my own so that didn't help. I'm sure it will get easier.
I will be buying slightly heavier pegs.

All in all, it's a great tent and I look forward to many fishing trips with it.

Good, solid tent

This tent really does go up instantly, at least the main part. The fly takes a little longer to get on over the top, pegged down and awnings up.

The front awning design isn't the most sturdy.

It's a heavy item all up.

The 4P doesn't leave room inside for much more than sleeping.

The climate control, with the low vents, is absolutely marvellous - you can get nice airflow in the morning when the sun starts beating down on the tent, so you can get a little bit of extra sleep after a big festival night.

Comfortable, and you can stand up inside which is a plus.

Instant up gold ten

Between buying and using our tent it has been a while but we are very impressed with the quality and ease of putting this tent up. We decided not to buy another annex for the new van and use your instant up gold tent for our grandchildren. This has been a win win situation for us. Thank you for your advice on our purchase. Also it withstood a tropical thunderstorm with hail the size of golfballs without complaint whilst away in QLD. Cheers CJB Mornington

Quick and Easy

Instant Up, this proved to be quick and easy for our friends to use while they traveled with us from Brisbane to the Bungle Bungle. It is a great tent to use while traveling day after day. Also quite lite and compact to travel with. We are really pleased with our purchase.

Really is as easy as the video shows. Pegs pretty small though, get a few more sturdy ones and sand pegs. Tent packs back into bag with room for the extras.

Yeah a few heavy duty pegs are a worthwhile addition to the Instant Up tents. Glad you're happy with your tent Robert. Ben.

Side awning attachment. 1 answer

Hey Snowys, just wondering if you guys sell the side awning attachment for this tent?

Instant up 4p gold darkroom fly?3 answers

Hi guys, i've recently bought a gold 4p tent standard. I know i can buy the 4p gold Darkroom fly only, but how much does it cost? cheers.

- Wodonga(7 months ago)

G'day Adrian,

I'm not sure on this one mate, I'll have to have a look into it for you and let you know.

- Snowys(7 months ago)

Hey Adrian,

Sorry about the delayed reply here. I'm waiting on a response from Coleman on the availability of fly sheets for the new dark room tents. They are not an 'off the shelf' item, instead, they need to be sourced as a part. When we were able to get them for previous models the price was $200 , it will probably be more expensive for these tents. I'll let you know as soon as I hear back from them.

- Snowys(6 months ago)

Hi Adrian, 

I've just heard back from Coleman and unfortunately they do not have the flysheets available as a spare. He also mentioned that the new Instant Up Darkroom 4PV and 6PV flysheets will not fit the old model 4P and 6P Gold Series Instant Up Tents anyway. There are fittings on the new models to accommodate the extended vestibule that don't exist on the older models. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, let us know if you have any further questions.

instant up gold 4p tent1 answer

Hi, we are wondering if this tent would be easy enough to put up and pull down every day for 2 seniors on a driving holiday in north qld?

- North Mackay(1 year ago)

G'day Eileen, 

It probably just depends on what you'd be comfortable with, but it is going to be an easier option that a heavier canvas touring tent. 

To set this tent up: you tent out of the bag, lay it down, spread the fabric out, extend the legs until they lock into place, put the fly over, and then peg it out. if you have a look at this

If you have a look at this video here, you can see how it comes together which will give you an idea of if it's going to to be the best tent for you.

4P Tent comparison1 answer

Tossing up between Oztrail & Coleman 4P tents. The Oztrail tents appear to have only a partial fly compared to Coleman full fly. This would make it more waterproof I suspect, but maybe hotter? Which would be the most durable & easier to put up? Gekko stretcher (bought from you - V good) - any problems with the floor if pads used under the legs? Would rather buy from you! :) george

- Thirlmere 2572(1 year ago)

G'day George,  

Both the Oztrail Fast Frame Tourer and the Coleman Instant Ups have a full fly, it’s the Fast Frame Cruiser models (which we don’t stock) that have the partial fly, so the fly on the Instant Up and Fast Frame Tourer should offer the same level of ventilation.

As for waterproofness, the Instant Up will perform slightly better as it has a higher waterhead rating.

I would say that they are both on par with ease of set up. As for durability - we have had more experience with the Instant Ups (they’re one of our most popular ranges) and they get rated highly for their performance over time. The Fast Frames are newer to us, so we don’t have as much feedback for you on how they perform in the long term. 

We’re so glad to hear you’re enjoying your Gecko Stretcher George, also thanks for supporting Snowys! You shouldn’t have a problem with the feet of this stretcher in either tent if you want to use pads, but just note that the floor of the Fast Frame is going to be slightly thinner than the Instant Up. 

- Snowys(1 year ago)

Stretchers in the tent1 answer

I have an oztent gecko stretcher, are the sides of the tent suitably vertical to accommodate the stretcher (and possibly 2 of them) without touching the tent walls? Doesn't work in my old oztrail tourer 9 being so angled

- Brisbane(1 year ago)

G'day JF,

The walls of the Instant Up 4P are only slightly sloped, and as the Gecko stretcher is 190cm long, and the tent is 230 x 230cm internally - you should have approx 20cm on each end so it's unlikely that stretcher will touch the tent walls.

How does this tent stand up to other brands such as Black Wolf and Oz Trail? 1 answer

How does this tent stand up to other brands of quick set up tents such as Black Wolf and Oz Trail? Thanks in advance. 😊

- Mount Cotton (1 year ago)

G'day Becka,

If you're comparing the Black Wolf Turbo range, the Coleman Instant Ups and the Oztrail Tourers - they're all good tents for different reasons. 

I'd say that the Turbos are going to be the most heavy duty (of the three ranges) in their construction so they will last longer over time. The Turbos also give you the option of accesories to add to your tent set up. They would be best suited for very frequent campers who are looking for an investment tent that can be used 3-4 seasons of the year. 

The Tourer range is closer in configuration to the Turbo, and has the option of accessories, and is made from polyester - so they're a lighter and lower priced option to the Turbo for 2-3 season use. 

The Coleman Instant Ups are also less heavy duty than the Turbos and are made from polyester so they're lighter and made to be used for 2-3 seasons of the year. They don't have the option of accessories like the Tourers so that's what sets them apart. 

I would say that construction wise the Tourers and Instant Ups are roughly the same, while the Turbo is heavier duty - so it's more durable than the others.

Hi there, just wondering which gazebo goes to the Colman instant up gold 4p tent and how much it is?also the size of the side awning? Thanks in advance 😊 1 answer

Hi there, just wondering which gazebo goes to the Colman instant up gold 4p tent and how much it is?also the size of the side awning? Thanks in advance 😊

- Mount Cotton(1 year ago)

G'day Becka,

I've just measured the side awnings for you from the in store display model and they are approx 90cm long, and the front awning measures 170cm. 

The front awnings of the Coleman Instant Ups have a strip of velcro along it, the Coleman Gazebos are generally 3m long - so while you can attach the awning to the velcro along the side of a Coleman Gazebo, there will be a bit of a gap on either side.

Can one person erect this tent1 answer

Am a female looking for a tent I can mange on my own

- Wyong nsw(1 year ago)

G’day Jan,

I've just noticed that this answer didn't go through, it was all ready to go but it somehow didn't get approved. I am so sorry about that - I hope this hasn't inconvenienced you. 

You absolutely can put this tent up on your own, as it’s the smallest in the range and weighs 12.7kg so it should be very manageable.

Set up is very simple - you just take the tent out of the bag, lay it down, spread the fabric out and extend the legs (one at a time) until they lock into place. Then you put the fly over the top, peg everything down and you should be all set. 

- Snowys(1 year ago)

Set up1 answer

Hi, Have been looking at this Tent vs others and was wondering if 1 person is able to set this up with relative ease. Thank you.

- 5087(1 year ago)

Hi Jo, the Instant Up Gold 4P is a very good choice if you’re looking for a model that’s easy for one person to put up. Set up is very simple - you just take the tent out of the bag, lay it down, spread the fabric out and extend the legs until they lock into place. Then you put the fly over the top, peg everything down and you'll be good to go.

sturdy dome tent alternate1 answer

Hi, looking at the Instant Up Gold 4P and noted your comment regarding its performance in windy conditions. I like the height and quality of the Gold 4P, can you provide suggestions for an alternate Dome style tent I can do a comparison with.

- CHARLESTOWN, NSW(1 year ago)

Hi Joe, a dome style tent will always perform better in windy conditions as it deflects wind, whilst the flat sides of a tent such as the Coleman Instant Up will catch the wind. I would recommend considering the Black Wolf Tanami Delta 4 (Snowys code: 33327) as it has a cross dome frame, is around the same height as the Instant Up, and has gotten very good feedback from other customers regarding its quality. The only downside is that it is harder to put up.

What does it look like packed up?1 answer

How small does it go?

- south Yarra(1 year ago)
G'day Ruth - Packed dimensions for the 4P Gold are 112L x 24W x 24H cm. In the cardboard box, as it'll arrive to you, add a centimetre or two to each of those measures. Hope that helps. Cheers, Paul
- Snowys(1 year ago)

groundsheet size1 answer

Hi, sorry for another question but I don't want to order the wrong groundsheet, if I got the the 4p gold would the oztrail ultrarmesh 2.44 x 3.65 be big enough to cover the base of the tent and the side awning with a little over hang outside the awning or would I need a bigger size.Thanks again for all your help

- Penrith(1 year ago)
There's not necessarily a right or wrong here Matt, just personal preference. The groundsheet you mention will cover the base of the tent and most of the side awning but will leave nothing in the awning. To cover both the awning and the vestibule you will end up with a corner of tarp that will be out in the open, it would need to measure about 3.1 x 4.0 metres to cover all of this. I think the groundsheet you mention will be a good solution to cover side awning and protect the tent floor, and the doormat in the Instant Gold series will provide a clean surface in your vestibule, much bigger will just result in a lot of extra fabric around the tent.
- Snowys(1 year ago)

awning size 1 answer

Hi just wondering what the size is for the side awning, is it 2.4m wide same as the tent or smaller and how far it extends outwards.Sorry for all the questions i just want to get the right tent.Thanks in advance

- Penrith(1 year ago)
It starts at the same width as the tent Matt, 2.4 metres in this case, and tapers to about 1.2 metres at a distance 70cm out from the front of the tent. Both the Instant Up 4P and Instant Up Gold 4P have the same dimensions. By choosing the gold you are basically getting the 'deluxe' version of the regular silver model.
- Snowys(1 year ago)

Is the front vestibule included and integrated?1 answer

- MOSMAN PARK, WA(1 year ago)
I'm not sure I completely understand your question sorry Mr. Jank, I'll answer as best I can. The front vestibule is created once the fly is placed over the tent, without the flysheet the tent is a single room. With the flysheet in place a small vestibule is created in front of the entrance, and further to this the flap/doorway through the flysheet can be extended as an awning over the vestibule. Inside the vestibule the Gold Series have a doormat included. I hope this is clear, please don't hesitate to call us if you need further clarification.

Coleman Instant Up Gold 4P Tent1 answer

Hi, I recently purchased this tent from you but there was no "Detachable side awning attaches either side" I will be coming to the store to purchase some further camping equipment so was wondering if this side awning would be available? Thanks, Philip Rees

- NORWOOD, SA(1 year ago)
Sorry about this Philip, we had a few of these that have appeared without the detachable side awning included. Please mention it to one of our team when you are in-store and we'll sort one out for you, make sure you mention this enquiry when you call in.

Does it have roof vents? 2 answers

It appears the gold version doesn't have roof vents where as the standard model does, is that correct?

- Northcliffe(1 year ago)
There are no roof vents in any of the Instant Up Tents Hayden, have you read somewhere that indicates otherwise? I have the standard model and there are definitely no vents in mine.
- Snowys(1 year ago)

On the 2015 models the top of the tent has vents (it's the model without side windows). Seems to now have been replaced with side windows which is probably better, the one with the roof vents is great on hot nights but you can't control the air flow when it gets colder so it gets chilly inside.

What is the difference between a an instant up 4p tent and the gold version? .1 answer

- HOBART, TAS(1 year ago)
Hi Rachael, the Gold series features more durable fabrics on the upper, a heavier duty and nicer feeling floor and has a few extras including a door mat, floor level vents, more storage pockets inside and an extra awning that can be attached on either side of the tent. The frame is the same between both models.

How do the instant ups fare without the rain fly?1 answer

Just wondering how these fare without the fly in fine conditions. The material doesn't seem as thick as some of the US versions.

- BUNDABERG, QLD(1 year ago)
Hi Andrew, I'll start out by saying that we always recommend pitching these tents in full. The issues we have seen are often a result of campers using these tents in windy conditions without the flysheet, resulting in the frame twisting and often becoming damaged. Using the flysheet mitigates these problems and allows guy ropes to be pegged out giving making the frame sturdier. I'm not familiar with the US versions of this tent, but If it was used in conditions where there is no wind, then the thickness of the fabric shouldn't have and impact on how well it holds up simply because there is nothing to test it's limits. UV light is the only exception, but assuming the inner fabrics are both polyester then resistance will be similar. I'm not sure if I have answered your question here, let me know if you need anything further clarified.

What is it like in strong winds?1 answer

I'm going to be camping near a beach with strong gusty winds. Will this tent stand up to it?

- MOOROOLBARK, VIC(2 years ago)
Hi Kerry, the boxy design of these tents means they will not perform as well in strong windy conditions than a traditional dome tent, or heavy duty framed canvas tent. However, Coleman claim these to tested these under their "Weathertec" system to 100 kph. I wouldn't suggest tenting this on a regular basis, and would recommend a sturdy dome tent if most of your camping is coastal, where strong and persistent winds are a rule rather than an exception.
