I really like this cot. I also bought the lighter alps mountaineering cot and find this more comfortable. Have slept multiple nights on it a couple times and have no complaints. Set up was not a problem for me. I’m 5’ 7” 150 lbs and can easily get legs into slots. Didn’t need any special tools or anything to set it up. I will say that my wife struggles a bit to set it up, but can do it with effort. Takes up little space while transporting. Wouldn’t go backpacking with it-too heavy for that. Definitely the best bang for the buck.

Should have paid more attention to the numerous reviews mentioning set-up problems. We bought TWO of these cots, and on each one, one side rail went in with a reasonable amount of effort, and the other would not go in by hand -- they required the use of a screwdriver as a wedge, like a tire iron. There was NO WAY we were going to get the rails in without a tool. We are letting them stretch overnight, then we'll take them apart and try to set up again -- maybe the canvas will have stretched adequately.

I returned this product before using it

As a woman of normal strength I can not get the legs into the holes. Neither can my big strong young buck neighbor. I am returning this cot,

Best bang for the buck cot you can buy

If you are car camping, this is the best cot you can buy. I just purchased my third and fourth, so all the family now has one. It's very well made: the heavy duty steel will last forever, like the thick nylon sleeping surface. You do need some reasonable strength to bend the sprung legs into place, but I prefer this to having moving parts to break. There's nothing lightweight to make it expensive. The legs have a large contact surface with the ground, so very little chance of puncturing the floor of your tent.

I have never come across another Corlett!

What is the length of the cots legs/how high does the cot sit off the ground?
