Coleman Cobra pro 3 review – what do customers say?
I bought this tent for a 2 week camping trip around Iceland with my girlfriend in early June, 2014.
The tent itself is pretty light, and fits in a small bag which was great news for us as we only had one check in bag for our camping stuff. We hadn’t practiced putting up the tent before our trip so when we arrived, it was the first time we had tried. The whole process of figuring out how it goes up to actually having it up and ready was about 5-6 minutes, it is a very simple tent with one long pole and one short pole that go at either end of the tent. Pegs then pull the poles upright and the inside compartment is clipped to the outer shell. It was really handy as a lot of the time we were putting it up in the rain!
The tent is just big enough for two people and luggage, maybe a tiny bit on the small side but we did have a lot of stuff! I would definitely recommend this tent over the two person tent if you are going to have quite a bit of luggage and no way of storing it outside of the tent.
The pegs are a good quality, not just the cheap ones you get with cheaper tents. It also comes with a little repair kit for holes which is handy.
Cracking little tent bought after seeing Waynetod’s post in January. Bought the three man version as difference in pack size and weight over the two man was marginal and it is really spacious and can sleep a couple in reasonable comfort with acres of room for a single camper. Clever wedge design provides great storage in the two ‘wings’. Simple pitch as one takes me no more than 10 minutes and little more to pack away.
As weight is not an issue for me, I’ve ditched the strange lightweight pegs that it came with as I as somehow cut myself the first time I tried them and have replaced with normal pins.
The only real problem I have with the tent is the outer door zips feel tight – unclipping the fly from the poles to provide a bit of slack solves this but is a bit of a pain and can’t be done from inside so overnight resort to leaving the bottom two clips off and crawling in the bottom of the door. Have tried moving things around but can’t seem to find the answer with the problem being the same on both doors. This is the only reason I’ve not scored it a ten.
