Award Winning Tent! The Coleman Cortes Octagon has won 2015 Tent Of The Year at the Camping Magazine Editor's Choice Awards!
Just about as versatile as a family tent can be - the Coleman Cortes Octagon is a single large room that can be used for luxury camping, family holidays, garden parties...the list goes on! 
Large mesh windows all around give fantastic views, while the full-height external curtains and sewn in groundsheet offer full waterproof protection. You can even remove the flysheet entirely and just use the inner and poles to create a large insect-free space tht's ideal for hot, dry days.
The front door is hinged (like a proper door!) which makes getting in and out a lot easier than most tents, and the wheeled carry bag makes it easy to get from the car to your chosen pitch. A clever combination of design and practicality.



  • 8 man, single room tent that can be used for holidays, festivals, or in the garden.
  • Fully waterproof flysheet – 2000mm Hydrostatic Head with taped seams to keep you and your family dry.
  • Well ventilated inner tent – part polyester and part insect-proof mesh for a breathable and bug free tent.
  • Huge mesh windows – for 360° views and a light, airy tent.
  • Sewn in groundsheet - offers protection from wet ground as well as creepy crawlies.
  • Stable – strong steel poles.
  • Hinged door – for ease in entering and leaving. Has a large storm flap to keep out drips.
  • Room divider - attach with toggles and loops to split the tent in two for extra privacy.
  • Fire retardant treatment – self extinguises and doesn't flare when exposed to naked flame.
  • Size: 396 x 396 x 208cm
  • Packed size: 85 x 30 x 30cm
  • Weight: 20.7kg

Tent doesn't stand up to blustery weather

12th Oct, 2016

from Fort William

Just be aware if you are buying this tent that the poles could fold as happened to me. I had pitched it in light wind, all the guys were out. Overnight the wind picked up a bit and the tent poles bent


Lovely tent

Great tent plenty of room 3rd time I put it up on my own.


Can't beat it for the price

Very solid, spacious, can be erected without the guy lines as it is very stable even without them.
Slightly cold though, wouldn't camp in colder months without sufficiently warm sleeping bags.


Wet tent

Why would anybody design a tent where you put the inner tent up first? If you have to pitch on a rainy day the entire inside the tent is soaking before you have even begun your holiday. Not a sensible idea especially if you have them children who are hoping for a dry camping holiday.


Pros and Cons

Erected in extremely windy conditions on my own. Stayed firm and dry. Love inside.
Wind blows under flysheet and through mesh windows. With few thoughtful adjustments this problem could be resolved.


Our new favourite family tent - wouldn't change a thing!

We are a family with 3 kids and big dog and have just been away for a (rainy) camping trip. It was easy to erect, spacious, completely water and bug proof and a brilliant and very attractive design.


Buyer Beware

from West Wales

This is a great garden gazebo or sleeping pod for summer nights but as a tent for the British weather it is cold, noisy and poorly thought-out; build quality is poor so best avoided by most buyers.
