Summary:
I have had this tent for ten years now and it has been a convenient simple and very waterproof tent. Has held up to heavy winds and rain while camping along Oregon Coast, was so windy and stormy had to stop riding bike to camp on like until winds settled. This tent held up to the heavy winds just fine. Later added MSR ground hog stakes for an upgrade. http://www.biketourings.com

Summary:
THE best cost-to-value tent I've ever used or owned. A true 3-season tent. Never leaked or failed to stand up -- even in stormy weather. Love the built-in vestibule space & double doorways. Was surprised to see "my" 10 year-old tent so highly reviewed & thought of when we trekked in Scotland in 2007. It got a lot of comments -- all positive.

Customer Service:
Well, I *live* in Kansas, so I've known about Coleman forever; however, I was very pleased when I needed a replacement rainfly. The Peak I folks were VERY quick & helpful and I didn't even pay shipping. Customer for life.

Similar Products Used:
I've seen several similarly-styled tents from new companies that probably use newer & higher quality materials -- but I'd never be shy about taking my simple & cheap Peak I on any trip. Just haven't used or seen a better style or value.

Summary:
If you are here readin this, like the 40th review then you already know the upsides of ths tent. That said here are its definate downfalls. First: no bathtub floor Second: not freestanding Third: heavy compared to similar products out there today (not nearly as cheap as this one though) I have owned this tent for about 5 years and it has performed very well for me.

Customer Service:
never used

Similar Products Used:
Similar Pek 1 tents that are just as light and freestanding, Northface something or other (too expensive in my opinion)

Summary:
I'v owned this fantastic tent for 10 years now, it is the best tent I have ever used. I lived in it for 160 days when I hiked the Appalacian Trail, no complaints. It withstood driving rain, 30+ mph winds, even a few critters crawling on it. The only downfall is you must stak it out to set it up, bad if all you have is a hard rock surface.

Summary:
I've had this tent for about four years.
I live in oregon and am no stranger to hiking in the rain. It has seen some serious downpours and never leaked. I have never used a groundsheet. In really heavy rain I make a small trough around the tent to divert water flow. This is definately the best backpacking tent I've ever used. The only setbacks are condensation, and the fact that it is not freestanding. If you are a smart hiker you can deal with a non-freestanding tent. I've piched this tent in sand in high winds using the factory stakes and some carefully placed diftwood. The only tent I would consider using over the cobra is the new big agnes ultra light 2 man. (only slightly lighter, slightly more room, and freestanding) Take into acount the fact that the big agnes costs five times as much and I'll still with my trusty coleman.
