Found 5th Sep 2016
Just paid £41 for the smaller Cobra 2 (which has now sold out) before discovering the larger version is also reduced.

At 2.9kg it's not bad for a tent to share.

Seems to be a well reviewed, highly-regarded tent.

Set up: Flysheet first

Capacity: 3 person

Flysheet fabric: Polyester, 3000mm, PU coated, taped seams

Inner tent fabric: Breathable Polyester and no-see-um mesh

Groundsheet: Polyester, 5000mm, PU coated, taped seams

Poles: Aluminium 7001-T6

Carry bag type: Two way compression with wide opening

Headroom: 100 cm

Pack size: 49 x 21 x 20 cm

Weight: 2.9 Kg

Great deal. Like you just received the 2 man tent but just processed a return and exchange for this which Amazon did immediately. Brilliant.
Seems to be a lot of tents on here today.
Fantastic tent! Light weight, spacious and easy to erect. I bought one a few years ago and it has survived many hikes, stag do's and family weekenders. Absolutely well worth £50!
Better deal than the cobra 2 IMO. Way more space and you can actually sit up in this. Price now £53
Price seems to be fluctuating a little but still a good deal.
I can't decide whether to cancel the Cobra 2 I ordered for my daughter or not - 2.9kg is a little heavy for a backpacking tent (the Cobra 2 is only 2.2kg).

It's going to get mixed use - sometimes just her as a Guide leader (so the extra weight wouldn't be a problem as they get a lift to the campsite, but the Cobra 2 should be big enough anyway) and sometimes backpacking with her partner (where the extra space would be useful but the extra weight would matter).

EDIT: Cotswold also have the Vango Soul 200/300 which cost about the same and weigh about the same - might go and have a look in the local branch before making a final decision...

If weight is important you might consider this amazon.co.uk/Jac…ent
It costs a little more, but weighing in at 1.5kg I doubt you'll find better in terms of quality/size/price/weight. There are more reviews on Amazon.de, where the Jack Wolfskin brand is held in fairly high regard, but price is currently best at amazon.co.uk.
