Best overall

Coleman Sundome Tent

Staff Pick

The Coleman Sundome tent actually fits six people, which means there's a lot of extra room for five people to comfortably sleep and stretch out a bit. It is easy to set up with poles that don't have seams. So there isn't a risk of snagging and ripping the tent. They also have been tested and are known to withstand wind gusts of over 35 mph. The dome shape allows water to run off the sides rather than pool on top, and the rainfly gives added protection from inclement weather. The center of the tent is six feet high and the Coleman Sundome includes a full year warranty.
