    comfortable, sturdy, low profile

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This cot is a great option for "one more place" to sleep besides the floor. While it's certainly not lightweight -- I pity someone who'd take this backpacking -- it'd be perfect for car camping, a base camp, cub scout camp, or around the house. The weight isn't noticeable in these cases, and the build actually benefits from being able to use robust materials that should hold up in the long run.

    Our 8-year old son really like lounging on it in front of the wood stove, reading books.

    Lightweight, Perfect Height

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This cot is exactly what I was looking for to replace my air mattress for car camping. It's lightweight, pretty easy to assemble, and fits comfortably into my 2-person tent. I also think it's a good width for me (5' 4", 140) I'm not feeling constrained at night. The height is actually perfect, its enough off the ground so I don't have to worry about rocks and such, but not so high that I'm crouched over in my smaller tent. My only critique is that the metal bars are a bit stiff and tough to put into place - they take a bit of muscle! But I would still definitely recommend if you're looking for the same features as I was.

    Great cot

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

    Smaller package makes it easier to pack in. Extremely comfortable. Some have stated it is hard to set up. It is not. Put your knee on the side rail and pop in the bottom support. Done.

    Not too light

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

    Great for camping out of a car/truck for the weekend. Solid construction and gets you off the ground, though I wouldn't consider 12 pounds to be "light" for this type of product.

    Light weight, useful.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Like the light weight and quick setup of this item. Wish it had spreader bars at the cot ends as it sags a bit at head & feet areas. A decent cot. Much better than sleeping on ground.

    Family used these - better than the grnd

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought a few of these for our Lake Powell trip and this paired with a decent airpad did the trick and we slept much better than in the years past. Plus it packs down to a very manageable size. Not light by any means, but thats kind of expected. My younger kids couldn't put it together on their own... required too much muscle strength, but that's no big deal... worked well for us.


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

    These cots had decent reviews, however, my daughter and I both found these low cots painful to "sleep" on. I'm not sure what use these cots have if you still have to use a pad? These cots seem to be additional costs of time, energy and money. I'm going to return them and put my money toward a good, pad.


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

    The metal pieces are difficult to slide into place and takes a while to set up. It's also heaved than other cots I've owned but also more durable.

    It's ok

      I've only used it a handful of times... Installation isn't difficult but feels a little treacherous as you have to use quite a bit of force to bend pointy rods into place. Also, the bed is a little creaky when you shift positions in the night. That said, it's comfy enough. It does the job. It's especially nice when you put a sleeping pad on top for maximal glamping comfort.

      Great cot

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I love this cot. It's a little on the heavy side, but it's sturdy, comfortable, and pretty easy to set up and tear down. A great option for car camping.

      Great for Car Camping

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have used it under the milky way with just a sleeping bag to keep me warm on my car camping trips. Wonderful addition to my gear. Would recommend it to my friends. For me it was easy to assemble and take down and it comes with its own bag to boot

      great cot for great price

        Got two of these for my husband and son...i myself like beds and am not a bug person. They have enjoyed the ease of the cots over air pads. They are comfortable and pretty easy to assemble. They look difficult at first when you pull out all of the poles and think what have I gotten myself into. The price is extremely reasonable and you do not have to worry about waking up on the dirt floor on a flat air pad. The only down fall was the weight was a little heavy, but as long as you are not parked to far from your camp site you should be fine.

        Awesome cot for the price

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

        Wanted something to replace my tent on motocamping trips.

        While it wasn't the easiest to put together the first time it definitely doesn't take an engineering degree like some people have suggested.

        Plenty comfortable to sleep on, while too big/heavy to backpack with, it perfect for car camping or as an extra guest bed.

        This cot will need to be high enough to...

        This cot will need to be high enough to go over the wheel wells. How much room would I have, underneath the bottom of the tubing?
