Coleman CanopyLike many of Coleman’s products, the Coleman Canopy is a versatile product that is built in such a way that it can be used in a variety of settings from camping, to wedding receptions, to sporting events to general use in your own backyard. Like many of their products, Coleman canopies are constructed with ease of use, functionality, portability and durability in mind. Because of their ease of use, many of these canopies are referred to as “instant” canopies.
A Coleman instant canopy is characterized by its easy three-step set up and three step take down, both of which can easily be done in less than three minutes. The steps include removing the frame from its wheeled carrying case, attaching the canopy and finally adjusting the canopy to its final height. These steps are easy to complete by one person but two can complete the set up in less time. When taken down the canopy fits easily back into the carrying case and is compact enough to fit in the trunk of most cars.

Like push button release levers, the comfort grips allow the use of a full handed grip instead of pinching adjusting pins with two fingers like many other canopies to adjust the height. These grips are easier to use and protect your fingers and hands from pinching .The one-piece frame construction also gets rid of the hassle of making sure that the frame is assembled correctly.
With scissor-style steel frame construction and slanted legs, Coleman canopies are built to optimize stability. The canopy fabric is waterproof to protect from downpours. Vents at the top of the canopy allow warm air to escape and keep the inside cool. The waterproof fabric also protects users from the sun with a 50+ SPF UV Guard rating.
These canopies are available in a variety of sizes, 10 feet X 10feet is the smallest, but all provide over 9 feet of ceiling height. Each canopy, regardless of size, can easily accommodate several people with chairs, picnic tables, or an outdoor vendor display. Each Coleman canopy also comes with a 1-year warranty for peace of mind.
A great feature that is included in many canopy models is a built in LED lighting system so that the canopy can be used for any occasion, even at night. The built in LED lights are very bright, efficient and can last for years. An added feature for the lights is a built in dimmer switch that allow the user to control the brightness of the lights for any occasion.
Many Coleman canopies have additional attachments available that can give each canopy greater versatility. Available attachments include screens to keep bugs out, sun walls to provide additional shade when attached to the side of a canopy, and weighted bags that can be used in place of stakes when the canopy is located on a hard surface such as asphalt.
Overall, a Coleman canopy provides excellent shelter from sun and rain, is easy to set up, can accommodate many people and can be found in a size that is appropriate for any occasion. Visit our other pages to find more great Coleman products including Coleman event shelters.
