Coleman Hooligan Tent

Are you a backpacker and always ready to go on adventure and you need to find something you can easily fold and get moving on your way? When backpacking you need something that is not too heavy or will add to your luggage. You need something you can attach to your backpack and easily carry around and when you need to sleep you just take it out and set it up. The Hooligan tent is perfect for backpackers. It might not be seen as luxurious like some of the Coleman tents but it is good quality and it gets the job done.


The tent is completely surrounded with polyester fly which is 450mm thick. It cocoons the tent and this gives you the weather protection that you need when you are out there in the wild. There comes a mini porch in the front which you can use as a storage space for extra gear. When you are inside the tent you need to be able to get some fresh air and you get this from the great ventilation that is made possible due to the all mesh body the tent has. When the weather is clear you can have a great time watching the stars.

The tent comes with the seams sealed already from the factory which prevents leaks. The floor is 1000D polyethylene floor which is shaped like a bathtub and has welded seams, this helps to keep the water out in case it starts to rain. It is great weather protection.

With just one pole the tent can be put up in no time and so simple even for first timer. It comes with a Zippered back vent to keep the tent comfortable and it is adjustable to suite your preferences.



It has some extra space in front of the tent to provide storage and keep your tent organized. It has external guy points to keep it sturdy against wind and other weather elements. The tent will come with carry sacks for storage and you can carry it easily as you go backpacking. You will receive a flashlight together with the tent. Because you never know when you will need a flashlight.
