The Coleman WeatherMaster 4 Air is an ideal tent for a family of 3 or 4 with smaller children, who want to turn weekends into family camping adventures.

The Coleman WeatherMaster 4 Air has many great features for an excellent family tent, especially if you are looking at getting a tent to use for long weekends and last-minute weekend camps.

Let’s take a closer look…

Tent Layout

The Coleman WeatherMaster 4 Air is an ideal family tent layout.

It has two bedrooms at the back (more on those later), a living space, and a useful little porch that provides a little bit of protection from the elements if the weather changes.

The BlackOut Bedrooms

A popular feature of the Coleman tents is the BlackOut Bedrooms.

As the name suggests, these bedrooms are dark.  Why is that a good thing? Well, science says we get a better nights sleep when it’s dark, plus, when the sun rises early on those summer mornings, the dark bedrooms should help prevent your kids from waking up at dawn! 😉

Coleman uses this technology to use the sun’s heat from the day to warm-up the bedroom in the evening.

BlackOut Bedroom Temperature

Coleman says that the BlackOut bedroom technology can keep the bedroom up to 5°C cooler during the day and up to 1°C warmer during the night. (Image Credit: Coleman)

On this tent, the bedrooms are the XXL versions, with a depth of 210 cm. This is much larger than many tents, and so plenty more space for bags and bits and pieces.

Between the two bedrooms is a removable divider.  This makes it easy to get to young kids at night if they wake up and wonder where they are.  Alternatively, roll up the divider and make one large family bedroom. 🙂

Another good aspect of the bedrooms is ventilation. This is important in tents, as condensation can build up on the tent’s inside when the air gets cool outside at night. The ventilation airflow design on this tent will help keep down the condensation.

The Living Area

The tent’s living area has two doors and a large window, so there’s plenty of light inside that part of the tent.

At the front of the tent is the main door, which has a small porch area that makes getting in and out of the tent in the rain a lot easier.  The groundsheet also lays flat here, so no tripping over it 🙂

On the big window is a large zip-up blind.

Zip-up blinds are great. They are not only quick and easy to close or open, but you can easily have them just half the way up.  Ideal for in the morning if you want to let in some light but not keen on other campers seeing you in your PJs 😉

You can purchase a carpet for the living area, which we recommend to make your tent warmer.  Just make sure any wet or muddy shoes are left in the porch area of this tent.

Search for the Coleman Universal Carpet Small, which you should be able to get for under £50.

Pitching

This is an inflatable tent, so you inflate the air tubes with the supplied pump.

You only have one tent pole in this entire tent, and so if dealing with all those poles gives you anxiety, you don’t need to worry about that with this tent.

Coleman’s 3-step inflation:
Step 1: Push in the pin and release.
Step 2: Inflate pole to 7PSI – pump with a pressure gauge is included with the tent.
Step 3: Replace the cap.

The tent is also just under 20kg.  That is relatively light for an inflatable family tent, making it a tent that’s easy to get in and out of the car and pitch quickly.

Despite it being relatively lightweight, the Coleman Weathermaster 4 Air has a whopping 6000 mm hydrostatic head.  That’s almost double the rain protection than many tents.

The tent material is fire retardant and coated with a UV guard.

Verdict

We think this tent is a great family tent for two adults and one or two kids. It’s ideal for weekend and long weekend camping.  While you could use it for a week-long family camping holiday, if that’s the only reason you are looking for a tent, we recommend looking at one of the larger tents in this range, such as the Coleman Weathermaster 4XL, which would allow you to store more items needed for a family holiday.

Alternatively, if you like this tent but your budget can’t quite stretch to it, then have a look at the Coleman Castle Pines 4 BlackOut. It’s almost identical to this tent in terms of features, but it isn’t inflatable, and so cheaper.
