What can I say.

I have never setup a tent in minutes this thing was up and ready, glad I made the purchase. The great service from Snowys was even better with quick delivery what more do you want.

Value for money and easy to set up

This tent is reasonably easy to set up and value for money.
One minor thing that can still be improved is those tent pegs.
They are too thin/soft for some tent sites.
A thicker/stronger peg would be much better (for some of the tent sites that we have visited recently - Devil Marbles in NT for example).

Very Easy

Nice easy tent to set up and pull down. Comes with a few poles. Zip up windows from the inside is the BEST idea!

Great service. Can't put it up as its pouring rain.
Don't you love the tropics ?

4P Tent comparison1 answers

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(14 hours 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.

Stretchers in the tent1 answers

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(2 weeks 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 answers

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 month 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 answers

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 month 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 answers

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

- Wyong nsw(3 months 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.

Set up1 answers

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(5 months 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 answers

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(5 months 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.

groundsheet size1 answers

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(9 months 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.

awning size 1 answers

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(9 months 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.

Is the front vestibule included and integrated?1 answers

- MOSMAN PARK, WA(9 months 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 answers

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(9 months 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(10 months 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(10 months 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 answers

- HOBART, TAS(10 months 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 answers

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(10 months 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 answers

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

- MOOROOLBARK, VIC(11 months 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.
