Perfect for the adventurous couple, or solo traveller that likes a little extra space inside your shelter – the Ridgeline 2P from Coleman is a wallet-friendly hiking tent, that can accompany you on your hiking or backpacking adventures.
Good option for a cheap, versatile tent for one person. Loads of room but doesn't offer any head room. I am 179cm and you cannot sit in it.
Great price, does the job,vVery easy to put up, carry and very sturdy!
This tent was great in terms of weight, ease of set up,and space even with two people.Good little spots inside the tent for stashing things also. The downside would be if you have two in the tent there is not a lot of room for your gear, you can make it happen but it is tight. We camped on the Royal Coast Track in Sydney, it rained all night from the time I put the tent up at 6pm until 8am next morning, no leaks,winning. There was some condensation going on which is to be expected on the coast with two in the tent.What I love about this tent is the ability to have it as just a mesh tent when the weather is good, cant wait to try that out. I also like the tent is light enough to carry if its only going to be for one, this gives me the option of lots of space all to myself.Last down side is the zip entry placement, when it is raining you have to expose the inside of the tent to the elements to get in. Room for improvement there, but in great weather this wouldnt be an issue.
A great light-weight hiking tent for fantastic value. If you're after a light tent for hiking primarily, you can't go wrong. For camping, however, I would probably choose something with more space as this tent is great for sleeping in, however small if you want to spend time in it during the day, etc.
Price is good and it packs lite. The design and set up have room for improvement.
For how much this little tent costs it sure packs a punch. We used this ten on the six foot track from Katoomba to Jenolan caves in NSW. The only downside is the headlight. However it's just as light as a lot of the $400 tents.
Would it be possible to set this tent up in a freestanding way in a sheltered location without any pegs or the fly? I can see it's not freestanding, but would body weight in the tent keep it stable enough without using any pegs or guy ropes to stabilise it?
I can't see this working Andrew, it needs to be securely anchored in order for the tent to remain pitched tightly and perform in wet and/or windy weather.
I guess you could place weights inside at each end of the tent, but it will be very unstable.
The length says 240cm. How much of that is usable as I'd imagine the walls are somewhat sloped so in practice can you fit two people and a pack at one of the ends?
You're right, the Coleman Ridgeline 2P Hiking Tent does slope down a bit at the ends but you should still have enough length to lay in the tent with a pack at your feet. The only small issue you might have is that it's not a super wide tent, so you might need to sleep shoulder to shoulder.
It looks like there's one vent where the door flap is. How big is it and can it be opened/closed?
I wasn't entirely sure of this one and no one else was 100% certain either. So I went to go and grab one to set up but ran into our Coleman rep on the shop floor, so he was able to help me out. He told me that the vent you can see on the door is the only vent on the Coleman Ridgeline 2P Hiking Tent. That vent can be sealed though if you want to not have any ventilation.
The ridgeline appears to have a vestibule but from the pictures it looks like opening the fly sheet for access to the vestibule also immediately opens the inside of the tent to the elements, specifically where the head of the guy in the photo goes! I'm wondering if having the opening where it is means it could be challenging to keep the top of my sleeping bag and pillow dry if it was raining and I needed to leave or enter the tent? Is there enough of a recess such that entering and leaving the tent through the vestibule can be done without wetting my belongings (as long as the rain isn't sideways of course!) Thanks!
You have, like us, identified a design flaw with the Coleman Ridgeline 2P Hiking Tent. While there are many great features to this affordable hiking tent, unfortunately, the exposure of the inner tent when the fly is opened isn't one of them (as you've already noted). We are yet to hear of a way around to ensure that you can enter and exit the tent in the rain without your gear in the inner becoming wet.
Is it 2000 or 3000? Your descriptions says both...?
I've had a look at the packaging of the Coleman Ridgeline 2P Hiking Tent and it's definately 3000mm waterproof rating on both the floor and fly. I'll get our web team to fix the description on Monday, thanks for spotting that!
Some websites say that this tent is 1.7kg whilst others say it is 3kg??
I've taken one of these down to our warehouse and put it on the scales just to be sure. In all the packaging it weighs 1.8kg so I think it's fair to say 1.7kg is reasonably accurate.
Hi there, confirming the total weight including fly is 1.75kg? I'm curious as to what the 50g difference is in weight between the 'min weight' and 'weight'. Thanks
Normally the definition of 'min weight' is the weight of the minimum amount of gear you need to get the tent standing, so it excludes any extra pegs, guy ropes, ground sheets and spares that might be included. In this case I'm not sure exactly what the 50gms is, Coleman actually don't quote 2 different weights on thier website. I weighed 1 of these for a customer earlier today and in all its packaging it weighed 1.8kg, so 1.75kg is reasonabley correct and yes, it includes the fly sheet.
