Size & Suitability
At first look, you can see just how spacious this tent is. Firstly, the entire tent measures out at:
440cm (14.4ft) in length
200cm (6.5ft) in width
155cm (5ft) in height
The bedroom area itself measures out at:
220cm (7.2ft) in length
190cm (6.2ft) in width
140cm (4.5ft) in height
Finally, the porch area measures:
210cm (6.8ft) in length
190cm (6.2ft) in width
140cm (4.5ft) in height
So as you can see, this tent is great even for the tallest of campers. You’ll have plenty of room for sleeping comfortably and a nice sized living area in the porch.
I really like the colour of it, it has that army camouflage / moss like tone to it which allows it to blend into the majority of natural surroundings.
It weighs just 7kgs so it’s incredibly lightweight and very easy to carry around with it’s handle bag.
It has a very easy set up and pitching is an absolute doddle thanks to the 3-pole tunnel construction and can be at full structure in 10 minutes. All the fiberglass poles are colour coded also so there’s no time wasted trying to decipher what pole goes where.
Great, especially if you’re setting up in the pouring rain!
Weatherproof Tried & Tested
The Coleman Coastline has an incredible 3000mm hydrostatic head along with taped seams that can withstand high winds so you can guarantee that you and your camping gear will remain dry the entire time of your camping trip.
The structure of the tent, with its tunnel design and curved features creates greater airflow over the tent so there is less chance of flapping around. The fiberglass poles are very strong and robust but more importantly flexible so it has that ‘give’ in it when camping in strong winds.
It is made of breathable polyester with fine cm mesh inside the bedroom area. It’s basically a pod separate from the tent flysheet itself and it’s with this double wall it helps to promote greater airflow so you can sleep soundly without worrying about condensation. It is also fully fire retardant which will give you that extra piece of mind.
It has 4 large doors, 2 at either side of the porch, 1 in front and 1 that allows you to enter and exit the bedroom area.
The porch area is a great place to sit and relax if the worst of the weather is outside or you can open it right out if you want to let fresh air in on a warmer day. It has a strong PE raised ‘bathtub’ groundsheet that offers full protection from the wet underneath. This can actually be removed and easily stored away if wet and muddy inside.
PVC windows allow natural light in which just helps brighten up the inside and means you can stay dry inside but still take advantage of the scenery outside.
If you want to introduce more light and fresh air into the tent, the front porch door can be elevated to form a shelter – creating even more space
Space is nothing you can go short of when camping!

Final Opinion on the Coleman Coastline 3 Plus
All in all I think this is an excellent tent for a couple or any small family who are looking to get away for a few days or weekend trip. The Coleman Coastline 3 Plus is guaranteed to be roomy enough to get a comfortable night’s sleep but also be able to hold and store all of your camping equipment.
It actually has a good head height as it’s a matter of ‘stooping’ to get in and around the tent instead of ‘crawling’ in on your hands and knees in what you would find in some other 3 man tents.
It’s a very modern, sleek and well-designed tent that will keep you dry and out of the elements.
You can use this tent anywhere – at a camping site, on the beach, on the coast or even your own back garden. Just always make sure to check rights about camping in public places.
The Coleman Coastline has over 250 reviews on Amazon with 3.9 out of 5 stars. It is a tent that many feel live up to its reputation.
To be honest, anything made by Coleman is a sure sign of quality. It’s a brand you can trust for all your camping needs.
