Coleman Instant Cabins vs Black Diamond Firstlight Tents

Analysis:

The Coleman Instant 6-Person Cabin was loved by reviewers at Wirecutter (NYTimes), a highly trusted source that performs reliable in-depth testing. It did great in its "The Best Car and Family Camping Tents" roundup where it was named its "Also great", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.

Returning to the Black Diamond Firstlight 2-Person Tent, OutdoorGearLab, a source that's known for its high-quality in-depth testing, has great things to say about it. In fact, it was named its "Best for Weight and Packed Size" in its "Best Four Season Tent of 2021" roundup, which is quite a feat.

We examined all of the review data that we could find and first took a look at sources that reviewed both of them, like OutdoorGearLab, and found that they haven't shown a preference for either product.

Then we checked which sources liked these two Camping Tents best and found that the Coleman Instant 6-Person Cabin got its highest, 8, review score from reviewers at OutdoorGearLab, whereas the Black Diamond Firstlight 2-Person Tent earned its best score of 8 from OutdoorGearLab.

Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other Camping Tents on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by Camping Tents being 6.4 out of 10, whereas the Coleman Instant 6-Person Cabin and Black Diamond Firstlight 2-Person Tent managed averages of 8.0 and 8.0 points, respectively.

Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct Coleman Instant 6-Person Cabin vs. Black Diamond Firstlight 2-Person Tent comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
