This is innovation, the Coleman Cortes Octagon 8 is ideal for so many types of outdoor camping, whether you use it as a day tent, or a couples tent or a group tent, the Cortes Octagon 8 can do it all! The Hinged Doorway also takes all the hassle of getting in and out the door away!


Our favourite tent of the year, the Coleman Cortes Octagon 8 man tent is a refreshing design of tent. Perfect for many types of camping events, the Octagon 8 is versatile and can be used as a day tent, a festival tent or as a couples tent. The Octagon 8 pitches inner tent first, and can be left as a free standing inner tent, if camping in warmer, dry conditions. However, if camping in the unpredictable UK climate, we would recommend attaching the waterproof flysheet over the top of the inner tent. The Cortes Octagon also features a sewn-in groundsheet, which protects you from the creepy crawlies, and any draughts.

  • Awesome Door Opening - actually opens as a full doorway - thanks to the pole inside the door sleeve.
  • Can be used without flysheet in warmer conditions
  • Can be used as a day tent
  • Can sleep up to 8
  • Perfect for couples
  • Two colours available - Green or Blue

Berth4 Man

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. Normal procedure is to look for a slightly larger tent, for example, a family of four usually purchase a five or six berth tent, to give added room and comfort.

Hydrostatic Head (mm)2000

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.

Doors2 Doorways at opposing ends of the tent
Flysheet FabricPolyester, PU coated Flysheet

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.

Ripstop Nylon – a durable material used in tents which is strong and repairable due to its Ripstop properties.

Groundsheet FabricPolyethylene Integrated Groundsheet
Inner FabricBreathable Mesh Inner Tent with lots of venting
Window FabricPVC clear windows for added light into the tent
Fire RetardantYes

Fire Retardant – all modern tent fabrics are fire-retardant under EN5912 European Safety Laws. Caution with fire must always be used, as flame retardant fabrics, will still catch fire given the right circumstances.
