I've been up most of Britain's tallest peaks, so rather than take a hardcore mountain tent, I decided to buy this for some summer camping at Le Mans 24 hour race. Worst mistake I made. It was drizzling when I arrived and continued to rain for most of the night. I woke in the night to find my sleeping bag was soaked. It looked like the inner and outer were touching and there was little to no ventilation to help with moisture removal. The next day I tried again, repegging everything and... (read more)

I have been using the Cobra 2 for over 12 years now and apart from the longer pole developing a bow i have no concerns with it at all.
I have used this tent in some very strong winds and torrential rains. I recently used it in Brecon with force 5-6 winds and a rainfall over 3 inches over night and did not feel a drop inside the tent.
This has been a very faithful companion. (read more)

Good weight. The Coleman Cobra 2 has been in use for 5 years without any big troubles (i.e. about 10 times per season). For tall people over 195 cm the only chance for good sleep. The best tent I've ever had. Only bad point, the smaller rod broke up twice. (read more)

The Coleman Cobra tent is one of the best bits of kit I own! Easy to erect, seems to withstand any wind! a lot more spacious than it looks! Inner goes up 1st, so can get wet if raining heavy when putting up and taking down. Could be lighter weight, but not too heavy to carry. (read more)

I have used the Cobra 2 in some pretty bad conditions its low to the ground design makes it gr8 in windy conditions and I have never had any problems with waterproofing. This is said to be a 2 man tent but you would have to be GOOD friends as i just about fit in with my 65l Karrimor Jaguar backpack. At just under 3kg its not that light but if you replace the pegs with titanium ones you save a good bit of weight.
Its cheap small and pretty light a good investment id say.
