Can You Set Up Your Tent in Less Than a Minute-These Guys Can

Have you seen the ColemanĀ® Instant Tent? Supposedly, you can set up this tent in less than 1 minute.


I’ve been wanting to get my hands on one of these tents and see if their claims are true.

So… I found a video of the product guys setting up the tent.

It does appear that this tent has a very easy and quick setup. But…I don’t think it was completely set up. Maybe I am just being too picky. What do you think?

  1. I have a Coleman Instant Screen Canopy. Does it set up in under a minute? Maybe on a good day. Can I get it set up and staked down in under 5 minutes? No problem.

    I also have to Gander Mountain Guide Series Jackrabbit tent, which is an integrated pole tent. They fold out rather than telescope like the ones in the video above. Also a fast setup. Thanks for sharing the video.

      Thanks so much for the information, Raun. I’ve been wanting to set one up, but since we already have a tent that we love, I am really not in the market for another tent. But I would like to play with one. And I have always thought that since the tent is not staked down in less than a minute, that it was not completely setup. But if you can get it setup and staked down in less than 5 minutes– well, I am impressed! That is a really fast, complete setup.

  2. I want to see a video on how long it takes to take it DOWN and pack!
