Comfortable but noisy

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought the regular sized cot for myself and the long one for my boyfriend. We found them to be very comfortable, but every time you move at all the cot squeaks and groans. Not just rolling over…if you wiggle your toe this thing squeals. Neither of us are light sleepers, and we woke ourselves/each other up constantly throughout the night with all of the squeaking. We tried many of the different set up options, and found that the cots were equally as loud no matter how you customize the set up (which is an awesome feature). We tested them out while car camping and sadly our every move on the cots could be heard by all of the surrounding campgrounds. As comfortable, light, and simple they are to set up, they had to be returned on account of their extreme loudness.

Ali, try this (and it's almost free).
Take a cotton ear swab and very lightly coat the points of hard part contact with a silicone protectant such as Armor-All. Dab some in the holes where the poles go, the ends of the poles, etc... It might not work 100%. But, I suspect it may reduce the noise.


Keeps the demons away!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I've been using this to sleep at work now for about a month. I have my choice between this cot or a rollaway at the motel and this is always the winner! I have a sleeping pad and bag and the combo is perfect. Super light weight and strong. I'm 6'2" and 225 and it holds me and the Sandman. I didn't find it very difficult to set up at all. It packs down way small. Only bad thing is making sure none of the poles fall out of the bag. So far one rubber band has worked for me. Great cot!


Nice cot, bro

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I like this thing, and, although it took a little while, it is starting to grow on me. At first I was confused with how to set it up, but with some time it gets easier. I've used it myself and loaned it to a friend who is 6'1", 190 lbs, and we both found the to be very comfortable, though a little awkward to set up. Once set up, it is pretty comfy. I bought this as a replacement to a inflatable sleeping pad that kept getting punctured. I like the idea that I will never have that problem with this cot. The things I don't like about this is that the cot takes much longer to set up than inflating a pad, it's quite expensive, and It is a bit confusing to set up. Hence the 4 stars.

It's also very light and only takes up a little bit of room in my pack. I think it's about 3 pounds, so you barely notice it backpacking. The fact that it folds down as small as it does is impressive. And the construction feels very solid; I don't worry about anything breaking.

I definitely recommend the cot if you've got some budget to put towards it and want a good comfortable night of sleep out in the wild.

That's not me pictured in the photo, but the guy pictured is a few inches taller than me (I'd say he's 6'1" or 6'2") and fits comfortably.

Nice cot, bro

Technology at work!

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

My wife used this on a recent kayak trip and we found it to be very comfortable, easy to setup, and cooler than we expected. She loved it, but in any kind of cooler temps an insulating layer should be used as you are elevated off the ground. A great purchase and I'll be using one as well next trip.


Simply Awesome...

    Haven't used it camping yet but assembled and tried it when it arrived. I can only say how awe struck I was with it's simplicity yet sturdy construction...and extremely lightweight to boot.


    Great cot

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    This cot is a back saver! it's light and relatively easy to set up. It holds me nicely and I am 6'2" 195 lbs. No more uncomfortable nights on the hard ground. well worth the $$$.


    Luxury Cot

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    This cot is great for those of us who can't sleep on the ground, even with a pad. I use this cot and put a self-inflating mat on top, and it's like sleeping on your bed at home. Enables me to enjoy backpacking.

    I am 165 lbs. and don't use the double twist poles, but still use all 12 feet, gives more support. I am able to sleep on my back and sideways with no problems. I also plan to use the Them-a-rest Apline down blanket to give me more movement.


    Cot - Great investment

      I'm 53, and I used the cot on a 5 day canoe trip into Algonquin Park, Ontario. For added comfort I placed my therm-a-rest on top. I'm a side sleeper...what a treat! No waking up to roll over.

      It does take a few minutes to set up but well worth the time!

      How warm will I sleep in comparison to...

      How warm will I sleep in comparison to using a exped synmat7?

      I use a 48" long therm a rest pad also and have sleep very confortably at temp below 20 degrees in a two man tent. I use a utra light Kelty bag rated at 20 degrees.

      This cot has an ultralight mesh top that the description actually highlights as being cooler to sleep on when it's warm out. The Exped Synmat 7 has and R-value of 4.9, so if you're asking in reference to cold weather use, I think you would need to use the Exped mat on top of the cot to keep warm. For hot weather, this cot may keep you a bit cooler than the Exped mat.

      Best Answer

      How does the cot treat your tent floor? I'm wondering if the floor of my new ultralight tent would stand up to the cot's feet rubbing it against some rough rocky ground.

      How comfortable is this cot really , could I sleep on it in a military tent ,new style, I'm a person that can't sleep but on one side due to injuries do you think it will work?

      This is for Dav. Try putting the cot under the tent to save the tent floor. =)
