One of the features we were most interested in was the “Darkroom Technology,” which Coleman advertises as blocking 90% of the sun, so you can sleep better once the sun comes up, or even go to bed early!
We headed inside the tent to see what this “darkroom technology” was all about…
The tent material did block a lot of the sunlight, with the mesh screen being where most of the light seemed to be coming in.
Final Thoughts on the Coleman Sun Dome 4p Tent with Darkroom Technology
We picked an extremely hot and sunny day to set up the Coleman Sun Dome 4p tent. However, that turned out to be perfect, because we were able to get a good feel for how much light and heat the Darkroom Technology blocks.
Well, it was still really hot inside the tent. And, while we didn’t have any kind of light meter to test the light level, it was in fact significantly darker inside the tent.
The Sun Dome 4p tent folded up nice and neat and went right back into the small carrying bag fairly easily!
All in all, the Sun Dome 4p tent seems like a great tent for the money!
