Featuring the same collapsible pole technology found in many backpacking tents, the Helinox Cot One Convertible has sprawling dimensions but is compact and lightweight.

The cot utilizes durable DAC aluminum single-pole construction and breathable mesh to create supportive comfort while making set up easy. The in-use dimensions of the cot are 74.8" x 26.8" and it sits 6.7" off of the ground. The Cot One Leg Converter Kit (12 pieces) allows you to lift the sleeping base further from the ground to create a high cot. NOTE: The kit is sold separately.

After a comfortable night of sleep, simply stow the Helinox Cot One Convertible away in the zippered storage bag (21.3" x 6.3" x 6.3") with convenient grab handles.

Great quality, experiment a little for optimal sleep system
Reviewed by Pantherred - October 24, 2018

Likes: Easy to put together, great quality, very comfortable. Need to experiment with pads, some are less compatible with the cot than others.

Dislikes: Since there are only three legs, if you sit on the edge in the wrong place, you can tip the cot over. Not a problem when you get used to it

Reviewed by S.A. - September 9, 2018

Likes: Lightweight. Strong. It's a cot, not a California King heated memory foam mattress with adjustable anti-snore options. It does what it's supposed to do. Does it well and with authority. Surprisingly large and comfy. Place a sleeping mat and sleeping bag on it and you're camping in luxury. Set up is super easy and taking it down is a cinch. It folds up nicely and stores in its pouch conveniently. Under 5 lbs (I have an old army cot that is smaller than this and weighs at least 4 times this and still doesn't hold up to the Helinox in any way).

Dislikes: None. Helinox makes legit stuff that works extraordinarily well. I'm a stickler for the good stuff. I have four of these (yep! 4!). One for myself, my wife, and my two boys. These are for life.

This is the one to get if you're a big guy!

A great piece of outdoor gear. Easy to assemble and dismantle, comfortable to sleep on and most of all looks great!

Ultimate camping comfort
Reviewed by Willy - June 12, 2018

Likes: I purchased this cot with the extra legs to make it 15" high. I was worried that it would be too narrow, but it fits a 26" Exped mattress perfectly. There is no sag in the center of the very tight top surface of the cot, so the edges of the mattress aren't pushed up along the sides. I use it with the Exped Synmat 3D-7. This cot plus this mattress is the most comfort you can possibly get in a tent. With the extra legs, there is no other cot on the market that offers so much comfort for so little weight and small packed size.

When I put the cot together the first time, it was quite difficult to close the levers due to the high tension on the top. I left it up for 4 days and when I assembled it the next time it was much easier. The cot fits easily in my kayak hatch, bringing a new level of comfort to paddle camping. The 12 legs add negligible extra bulk, and they fit it the bag with the cot.

LIKES: Assembles easily (the second time). The legs snap in easily. The cot can be assembled in about 3 minutes, plus 1 minute for the 12 legs. Very taught surface makes a good flat base for a mattress. The cot is very stable over the length and has only minor movement side to side. Easily supports my weight.

Dislikes: These are minor. Without the extra legs, older people may find it hard to get on and off the 6.7" high cot. It takes a slight bit of tugging to remove the legs. And then there's the price, of course---worth it if you camp a lot and are picky about your comfort, as I am.
