Almost as good as my bed at home
Reviewed by Kevin A. - July 1, 2018

Likes: I have been solely a hammock camper for the past few years. I am not able to sleep in the ground comfortable and still be able to walk the next day. I am a very active side sleeper, so even with thick sleeping pads I cannot stay comfortable for long. I have been planning some hikes out west where hammocks will not be an option, so I opted to try a cot. Firstly, this thing is light! It is amazing the amount of support it gives for its weight. Secondly, it has a very sturdy and durable design despite it's light weight. Lastly, it fits in a 2 person tent with room for the other person. It doesn't leave extra room, but enough for a cozy night sleep. I am small at 5'10" and 130 pounds and have plenty of space (similar to most sleeping pads).

Dislikes: I did not have problems putting it together, but it would be difficult to do inside a small backpacking tent. As long as the weather is nice, it can be set up outside and slid in. Also, the legs want to maintain their open position so it gets a little difficult when trying to fold them up and pack them down.

Super Comfortable and Light
Reviewed by Michele S. - July 1, 2018

Likes: Light but strong. We purchased these for car camping but I’ve done a lot of backpacking and I’d use them for backpacking too. They are super comfortable. We have light sleeping pads that we put on top of the cots and we were warm and comfortable all night long.

Dislikes: They are pretty stiff and difficult to put together the first few times. I’m not sure I could have done it by myself. It gets easier with use. Great design though.

Reviewed by David E. - May 31, 2018

Likes: Lightweight, Comfortable, High Quality... Can be made lighter by only packing three support legs vs four...

Dislikes: None really, but lighter is always better... Not sure how it will perform in winter with cold air flowing below?

Great cot
Reviewed by Michael T. - May 19, 2018

Likes: Lite weight and full cross bars
Everyone complains about putting it together but it’s awesome well worth it

Dislikes: None but we will test on a 10-14 day backcountry Alaska trip and review again
