The Rocky Mountain 5

The Rocky Mountain 5

As we enter spring, now is the perfect time to start planning your summer break away, whether it be in the UK or further afield…

This month, we review the Rocky Mountain 5 camping tent by Coleman®.

Its stand out feature is the BlackOut Bedrooms® to ensure that you get a longer night’s sleep. The revolutionary sleep system from Coleman® is ideal for parents or anyone who is sensitive to daylight.

I am such a light sleeper, that every time I camp in the summer I am woken by the light as soon as the sun comes up. It can be a real turn off.

Not to fear with this tent though, with the BlackOut Bedroom® blocking up to 99% of daylight from entering the sleeping area, it can help people like me, get a longer and more restful sleep – whatever time of day.


1. It can control the temperature, keeping your bedroom up to 5°C cooler during the day and up to 1°C warmer during the night.

2. It has fibreglass poles, the highly flexible and lightweight fibreglass poles guarantee a good response to wind and storms, (just in case)!

3. It has UV Guard™ Sun Protection. Certified laboratory testing proves Coleman® UVGuard™ protection fabrics with an SPF50 provide excellent protection against the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

4. WeatherTec™ – offers comfort and protection when enjoying the outdoors. A fabric’s waterproof properties are measured using a rating called its hydrostatic head. If a tent has a hydrostatic head of 3000mm it means that a 3 metre column of water can be placed on its surface before any drops will show through the underside of the fabric.

There are many other factors which influence the performance of tent in tough weather conditions. Coleman use the latest technology and a rigorous testing regime to ensure that we keep you protected at all times – whatever the weather.
