Ozark Trail Tent 10 person Vs Coleman
Which tent is better? The Ozark Trail Tent 10 person or the Coleman WeatherMaster 10 person? The Ozark Trail tent has a better rainfly than the Coleman tent which has to be waterproofed.
Although the Ozark tent has an issue with wind entering the tent due to its surrounding mesh and rainfly that lets the wind in. Also the mesh does poorly when rain starts falling heavily.
In comparison the Coleman allows for a comfortable amount of air circulation to enter the vents while letting the rain out once waterproofed. The Ozark lets in a lot of wind from outside. The mud mats for the Ozark and the Coleman both offer great floor protection.
They both have good ventilation, The Ozark has multiple doors and roof mesh vents surrounding the tent while the Coleman has angled vents, and a fully meshed breathable room. The Coleman is not suitable to handle rain as it is while the Ozark tent is.
Although if you put water repellant on the Coleman it is better than the Ozark because it handles inclement weather better through its vent system and angled windows.
As is though the OZARK Trail Family Cabin Tent (Red/Black, 10 Person) offers better rain protection although it lets in some wind and it’s not the best if you camp during heavy rains.
