The Coleman Cortes 2 person tent is a stylish tunnel tent from Coleman, offering a spacious porch area and a good sleeping space. Easy to pitch, using three fibreglass poles, which are colour coded to ensure you put them into the correct sleeves. The Cortes 2 pitches flysheet first, which is ideal if it is raining, as the inner will not get wet. The Cortes should be able to 'pitch as one', making it quicker, and easier to pitch. Perfect for adventure camping, short stay camping trips and festival campers.

Berth – This shows the number of people that the tent can sleep within the inner tents of a model of tent, in line with the industry standard.

|Hydrostatic Head (mm)||
Hydrostatic Head (Tents) – a waterproof rating for technical fabrics measured in mm. The higher the rating the more waterproof the fabric is. A rating of 1500mm is deemed waterproof, but on a tent, look for a rating of 3000 or higher. Measured by the height of water column a fabric weave can take before it begins to “sweat”. “Polycotton” tents will not have a Hydrostatic Head level, as they are not treated for waterproofing.

Polyester PU Coated Flysheet - Waterproof to 2000mm
Polyester – a synthetic fibre, made from polymer units to create a textile fabric. Polyester is the most popular fabric for tent manufacturing, as it is durable, reliable and lighter in weight. Polyester does not breathe though, which creates more condensation.
Polycotton - a blend of polyester and cotton, primarily cotton (usually around 65% cotton / 35% polyester split). Polycotton is a more natural fabric for camping, as it is breathable, far more durable material, reducing the effects of condensation. Offers greater versatility in hot and cold climates.
