The Coleman Octagon 8 Front Extension is a means of extending the Octagon Shelter, to create more living, storage and relaxation space. Ideally, the Front Extension can be used as an area to cook, as it will allow for more ventilation (never use Charcoal BBQ's). The Extension will match both the Green, Blue and Orange Octagon shelters, and has a fully clipped-in groundsheet.

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.
