      The fan is just enough to keep the air moving in the tent and keep some of the bugs away. Quiet so it did not disturb sleep

          This fan can also be laid on its side in the house to cool you off. They last several years when taken care of.

              Comments about Coleman Tent Fan:

              I have had two of these fans for years and they have turned humid sleepless hours into more pleasurable sleep filled nights. They still work even after years of use. I had a tent that liked to form condensation inside, and one of these fans moved the air enough to help beat that moisture build up. Blade comes off so they pack fairly well.

                  Comments about Coleman Tent Fan:

                  The magnet attaches with such force that it rips the battery cover loose when you try to remove it. Eventually the battery cover won't fit tightly enough to secure the fan to the tent.

                  Comments about Coleman Tent Fan:

                  Used this fan off and on for 4 years while canoeing/kayaking, car camping & backpacking in south Florida. The results are mixed. On the plus side, it provides enough of a breeze on hot, humid nights to make a bit of a difference. It's quiet, and goes a long way on one D battery. On the con side, it's way too heavy for backpacking, so don't even think about it there. Second, you have to take the blade off to pack it, but over two or three seasons of taking the blade off, now it won't stay on. The blade comes spinning off after a while. Third, the magnetic attachment for the base makes it hard to position. You can't really attach it to the side walls of the tent because it's so heavy that the blade catches on the walls or is hard to position so it hits the campers. We found that attaching it to the tent attic works, but then has a very small area of influence (so of course, my wife gets the fan). Attaching it to the very top of the tent also works, but then no one can feel any air movement.

                      [...] this item because it's so ineffective at providing cooling air. The fan is too tiny to make any impact on sleepers below.

                            This was the perfect small fan to break the heat at the National Jamboree with temps near 100! I bought two. It is gentle, not strong, but nice to sleep with.I was very happy to have it and used it every night for 10 days. The battery lasted longer than I expected! One drawback, the battery door is tricky, but I thought it was worth the $ and I would buy another.

                            great idea to move the air in a tent, but uses a D battery and the base is long and narrow so not real stable.
