    Source for Coleman Phad X3 tent?

    I've been doing a bunch of thinking/looking/thinking/etc. abut a new tent, and settled on the Coleman Phad X3 tent, primarily for its rain-fly-up-first, and integrated vestibule, design.

    Of course, it appears that Coleman recently discontinued it

    Anyone have a suggestion for a source? Or, does anyone have one in good condition they would be willing to part with?

    Thanks!

    Amazon.com will often carry discontinued items.
    Also, Coleman has an outlet store in Wichita KS - might be worth a call.

    Thanks very much, folks --

    Unfortunately, the Amazon one was the right name, but the wrong tent (went there first )

    The eBay seller is in the UK, and claims to have ten -- the only place I've seen them listed as "in stock" anywhere. Feedback was pretty good (but not perfect) and the shipping's pretty high -- but they appear to be the only game in town, so I've sent them my PayPal coins. Fingers crossed!

    I'm not a big fan of Coleman tents. They are okay for occasional use and mild weather I suppose, but they are not as sturdy nor can they stand up to severe weather like the better tents can.

    ... Perhaps I spoke too soon. While the specs and reviews of most Coleman tents are not that great, this seems to be a better grade tent than their regular line. Aluminum poles and a pretty good design that packs pretty small. I'm curious if any problems will be found by those who have used it for a few seasons or not.
