I purchase a Coleman Red Canyon 8 person tent. I set it up in my yard before actually taking it out camping, and boy am I glad I did. This tent requires three different types of poles and two of them broke during setup at home.

I contacted Coleman and they sent out replacement build a pole kits.

I then took the tent out camping and had another awning pole break, that means both of them have been broken now.

I contacted Coleman again and was made to feel that somehow I was abusing their product. They have basically refused to replace the third pole and even sent me the link to purchase a new pole.

Now why on earth would I ever want to give any of my money to Coleman? Ever!

They lost a lifetime customer.

My son was gifted a Coleman Hydration Backpack for his birthday. He used it once and the bladder broke. I contacted Coleman and was told to contact another company, Olivet to see what could be done. So I did. Olivet said they didn't have anymore and I should go purchase a similar one from a sporting good store. Since the backpack label says Coleman, I called them back to tell them the company they choose to handle the issue would jot help me. Coleman made no effort in helping me get a replacement bladder. Instead, they promised to contact Olivet and get back to me two days later. I never heard from them again. I expected a lot better customer service. They have made it clear that Coleman doesn't make all their own products and they are not a reputable company any more. I will not be choosing Coleman products in the future.

I purchased several pairs of lined pants from Sams club for my husband and son in law. Seems both of them have experienced failure with the outer layer splitting. Is this common for this apparel? I have a photo I can share. It's a little disturbing since we bought about 5 pair thinking the coleman name would be good product.

Colman 24 hour ice cooler is a great lunch pale but you will be lucky to get 4 hours of the 24 hours of ice it claims. Filled it with water 4 bottles 20oz and 3 sodas 12oz all cold from the refrigerator and no ice after 4 hours and black with the silver quick grab top ..

I have never been so disappointed in a company that my family and I have grow up with! THEY HAVE NO RETURN POLICY! I am not a person who doesn't gets upset, but I am incredibly pissed that a $160 item can not be mailed back if doesn't work for us.So glad I checked before ordering! MY WHOLE FAMILY AND I ARE GOING TO BE STAYING AWAY FROM COLMEN FROM NOW ON!

My Coleman tent got destroyed by wind, and left messages to try and buy replacement parts but nobody can be bothered to call me back. Coleman's customer service is absolutely terrible and for this reason I will never buy or recommend their products.

Purchased a Coleman 12 ft. x 12 ft. Canopy Shelter. Used the canopy on the beach four times and packed it up. A year later, discovered that one of the plastic brackets was broken. Checked on Coleman website and could not locate the bracket. From the website, sent an email asking to purchase the bracket. No response after over a week, so called the Support Line. Explained that my email had not been answered and provided the Incident Reference #, so she could see the email and the pictures of the bracken, model #, and even a picture of the bar code from the box. She left the line for a few minutes, returning to tell me, "They don't sell those parts for liability reasons". She then offered me a 25% off if I purchased a new canopy from her. I explained that my canopy had only been used 5 times, the last time with duct tape holding the support arm. Obviously Coleman is interested ONLY in selling new equipment and not supporting the equipment they already sold.

Bad customer service... Agents telling me that it would take so many days and it was a lot longer... Was prepared to pay for four day shipping and the fellow that I talked to said no they called me from the shipping part of the company said no it'll be here 45 days with you just paid $24 and he said it should be here Thursday and Friday of this week I checked in on that a couple times I asked him up at least three times if that was right and he said yes okay then when the lady called me the next day or at that night I called her back and then nothing was true... And she was the only one Sarah that said that there is no refunds but this was after I told them refund it and I hadn't heard about it before it doesn't say it on the paper from the order that where I ordered before... I've used over and over and over again for coolers Can't Say Never Again

Dont waste your time with coleman products they suck bought a pair of boots about amonth ago and they are are starting to fall apart i wouldnt suggest any coleman products to anyone

We purchased a canopy about a month ago. Last nite we had a rain, this morning the frame was all broken. Whence we got to looking the frame is made out of very thin aluminum. I understand that you want to keep the weight down, but we thought we were buying something a little bit more stable. If it can't go though a rain with no wind I don't consider this stable. We have always considered coleman a very good outdoor company. Not so much after what just happened. Thanks for time and will be looking for your return message.

I have two pairs of Coleman 6 inch or so waterproof boots. I purchased the pair of Coleman Dry boots around 1994 and they are still waterproof. The other boots are around 4 or 5 years old have no specific name on them, such as most of your latest boots, and they have very little wear, but the sole is separating from the leather section of the boot and they leak like a sieve. I worked in the recent floods in West Virginia in the newer boots and got my feet wet each time that I wore them. I am very disappointed in those boots. I am retired and on a fixed income and would like to purchase a new pair of boots but will not purchase more Coleman boots because of the performance of this last pair of 'waterproof" boots that I bought from your company. If there is any kind of adjustment that you could make, I would greatly appreciate it. I bought the boots at your Coleman store in Seiverville, TN and do not have receipt or remember exactly when I bought them.

Bought a Coleman aboveground pool. Have called customer service for ten days now. Everyone there tells a different story on why the missing parts to my pool have not arrived. I have been told it shipped then it has not shipped then it shipped again. I have been given every excuse and runaround. I askedto speak to a supervisor and was told they didn't have them. Spent over three hundred dollars on a pool that was missing lots of pieces in factory sealed box. Worst customer service I have ever seen. Will never buy a coleman product again. Shame on you Coleman

I contacted your company earlier this afternoon regarding a leakimg coleman propane tank. Your people were apologetic and give me the number to the manufacturer. I called them and there response was underwhelming. Rude, unapologetic, and told me there was nothing that can be done about the rank smell in my boat. My whole boat smells so bad we cant use it. This problem is going on three weeks now. I am sure that there is some kind of cleaner or chemical that will disperse the smell. I would appreciate a response.

To whom it may concern I had recently purchased a adventure backpack on wheels for school unfortunately within a months time the zipper had torn away from the backpack itself I don't understand how one can pay so much money for a backpack and have that happen and college books flying out of it not to mention with the handle itself no longer goes up or down just thought I would do this complaint and to let you know that this is very upsetting and I hope that you can take care of that real soon I don't know that I will ever buy another coleman product ever again sincerely. Missy hillmer. You can reach me by mail

Our wheel broke off our "Road Trip" Grill. My GF called customer service. They asked us to ship just 2 pieces of the grill to show proof of purchase and they sent us a "brand new grill" shipping prepaid. They also paid us to ship the bad parts back.
