Columbia Cougar Flats II Cabin Dome Review
The Columbia Cougar Flats II Cabin Dome Tent has the following features:
- 2 very spacious rooms with sleeping up to 8 persons
- 2 windows and 2 doors
- Ventilation and air circulation system
- Special rain protection system
- A Gear loft which can hold valuables
This tent has great reviews. The cyclone venting system works really well to keep the tent cool on really hot days and also helps the tent to dry quickly in wet weather. Exactly what you want. The windows design is quite amazing as you can keep them open even during a heavy downpour. This is very handy during hot humid weather.
Columbia Cougar Best Point
It seems the main benefit of this tent is the space it gives. There are 2 very large divided areas that can be used as either 2 bedrooms or one large bedroom and a large living area. We are talking large here! The walls are almost vertical which really makes it feel more spacious and there is no need for bending down at all. The interior even has pockets to keep things in and cupholders! Although I’m not too sure how it works I find the idea of a gear loft a really cool feature to store away and hide valuables especially during the night.
Cougar Flats Worst Point
There was no worst point from all the reviews I read. However in terms of setting up the tent some people felt that the instructions needed to be clearer but once you have done it a few times it does become easier. It can be set up by one person if necessary but it is easier with two. The carry bag for the tent is on wheels which makes it much easier to move around.
As with any tent it is worth spraying a water proofing coat to the exterior the first time you use it to preserve the waterproofing.
Overall this tent is great value for money and is certainly one that will last many years of camping.
