The Coleman Skydome Camping Tent offers great head space since it offer up to 6 ft 4 in center height. There are many great features such as a dark room that blocks off 90% of light from entering the tent. This can keep you comfortable during the daylight hours.






This tent also can be set up / teared down since it comes with pre-attached poles. It stands up against rain well since it comes with inverted seams and welded corners. Although you have to depend on your rain fly since the bottom is made of mesh which is great for air circulation but bad if the rain fly should fail.

Which tent is better? Coleman Skydome Dark Room technology or Coleman Elite Sundome? First of all the Skydome can block 90% of sunlight while the Coleman Elite Sundome does not have those abilities.






The Skydome holds 2 air sized mattresses while the Elite Sundome can also fit 2 air sized mattresses. The Elite Sundome also has neat features like the Coleman Dark room tech. Quite opposite to a dark room the Elite Sundome has built in LED technology that lights up the tent.






The Skydome underperforms in comparison to the Elite Coleman in the weather category. The Elite Coleman has 1000D polyenthlene material for the floor, dry awnings, and it holds up against 35 mph winds. The Skydome has a good rainfly but wind can get in through the rainfly and some rain can get in if the rainfly messes up.






The Skydome can also withstand 35 mph winds very well like the elite sundome. Over all both tents are evenly good so I would recommend you decide if you want the Dark room tech or the built in LED lights. The Lights and the Dark room are the only key features that differentiate these two tents. Get either the Coleman elite sundome if you want lights or the Skydome
