Despite the durable fabric used on the Coleman Lighted Instant Canopy, this is not really waterproof unless you will spray it in advance to totally repel water. One more trade off is the fact that the metal poles can rust when left out under the rain, making them a bit hard and messy to use. For this reason, the Coleman Lighted Instant Canopy is a better choice only for dry and sunny weather and is not an all year round kind of tent.
The Bottom Line
Even if the Coleman Lighted Canopy is not ideal for rainy seasons, you can still expect that this tent is a great partner to pull off successful outdoor events when the sun is high up in the sky.
