The windows are covered with a darkroom material that blocks out 90 percent of sunlight, which helps little ones sleep longer and better. It also has a room divider for more privacy inside. The Coleman cabin tent is a popup design that is easy to set up in under a minute. It includes a rainfly to keep water from running into the tent.
