Coleman Cobra 2 Backpacking Tent

The Cobra 2 from Coleman is a great little, compact backpacking tent, and would be ideal for anyone that’s planning on carrying the tent over long distances on a regular basis.

At only 2kg, you really aren’t going to notice the weight of this tent too much. And for what I like to call a “coffin tent” this one does leave some room at both the head and feet to shove your belongings. The tent is accessed only one side, but the inner has doors on both sides which means there is an extra “porch” under the flysheet on each side to put shoes and other bits.

The Cobra 2 is a tunnel design, consisting of 2 small, lightweight aluminium poles. The tent is super fast and uncomplicated to pitch, and both pole inserts are colour coded for quick pitching.

The packed size of this tent is just 40x18x15cm which means it will comfortably fit into any medium size backpack along with all of your other equipment and clothes.

The whole of the inner is mesh, meaning if your tent starts to feel a bit hot you can open and tie back the main door and leave the inner doors closed to keep the bugs out, but let some air in. The inner is made from the wonderfully named “no-see-um” mesh so that other campers can’t see you sleeping in your tent. The only disadvantage to this mesh is that it can reduce ventilation as the holes in the mesh are very close together.
