The Coleman Exponent Falcon X1 tent weighs 1110g; very small packed size; joint second lightest in the test; simple design; one pole, one guy line; plenty of porch space. But sleeping space is very limited; good pitching is hard to achieve as it lacks tension adjustment at the foot so the outer and inner touch over a large area at the foot.

Verdict: The Coleman Exponent Falcon X1 tent needs some design work at the foot; suitable for sheltered, low-level camps nonetheless.
