For campers, motorcyclists, backpackers, and those wanting to get outdoors, the Coleman Hooligan 2 Tent 2000001978 is the ideal choice when it comes to keeping you dry, even in the harshest of weather.
Coleman Hooligan 2 Tent 2000001978 Features:
- 8 x 6 ft
- Center height of 56”
- 2 person tent
- WeatherTec system for keeping dry
- Mesh inner tent (allows for ventilation)
- 1 mesh window
- Interior pockets for storage
- Single pole dome frame
- Covered vestibule
The Coleman Hooligan 2 Tent 2000001978 is perfect for campers and outdoor lovers of all kinds, particularly because of its sophisticated waterproof structure that ensures a safe and dry stay. I would say this is like a normal tent in that it provides you with a shelter to use when you’re on camping trips, but it’s actually a bit more than that. The Coleman Hooligan 2 Tent goes out of its way to offer a whole weather resistant shelter thanks to Coleman’s WeatherTec system. This includes: waterproof flooring, strong fabric to shield you against the elements, and ultra-protected seams that prevent leakage. If that isn’t enough, it also contains a full inner mesh framing to provide ventilation throughout the whole tent. If you get out a lot, this is a must have for most campers, and is particularly beginner friendly in that it is quick and easy to assemble.
- 5 to 10 minute setup time
- Keeps you dry
- Supplies space
With its single pole frame, the Coleman Hooligan 2 Tent is designed with quick assembly in mind. In fact, it takes only about 5 to 10 minutes for most people to setup, although first timer tent-setters may take about 15 or so minutes. The tent stays true to its word in that it keeps you dry, especially thanks to its waterproof floor and fabric, and its full length rainfly. For two people, it’s quite spacious with 56 inches of space height-wise, and an 8 by 6 foot area to sprawl out on. There are also several inner pockets to store your supplies.
The one downside of the tent is that it’s somewhat heavy. Because it has a pack weight of nearly 9 pounds, you may want to skip on it if you’re backpacking and need a light load. But if you can stand an extra 9 pounds of weight, then this may just be the tent for you.
It’s indeed an excellent tent for two people, but if you’re looking for a bit more room, consider the Coleman Hooligan 3 Tent 2000001590. If you’re trying to find a tent for the whole family, you may want to check out the Coleman Hooligan 4 Tent 2000001591. Like the original, both of these are spacious and keep you dry, but they fit more people.
The Coleman Hooligan 2 Tent 2000001978 may cost you a little more than the average 2 person tent — typically $64.99 — but you definitely get what you pay for: a quality tent to keep you dry and comfortable, no matter what the weather dishes out for you.
