Made one week of rough camping sleep enjoyable!
61 people found this helpful.
Spent one week in Canada with our Boy Scout Troop rough camping (no electricity/no water). Easy to set up (can be tricky sliding in the edge support poles – need some strength, but my 11-yr old set his up independently), folds up into the carrying case easily (not for backpack camping – way too big). Legs are stainless steel, which was a good thing as my tent seams leaked a little and they were in standing water several nights. It was nice being off the ground – I placed my 3.5-inch REI sleeping pad on it and slept like a baby. I am small (5’4″ 130 lbs), so it may not suit larger folks. While you can’t store large items under it, since it is low to the ground, you can store all your bags (sleeping bag cover, cot cover, camp chair cover, sleeping pad cover, etc.) under it along with shoes. Happy with the quality, especially for the price! Would recommend!
Couldn’t be better.

COULD NOT BE BETTER! bought it for my dog Tyger who is elderly and over 100lbs. It is low to the ground about 6 or 7 inches,v ery sturdy, 5 minutes to assemble, lightweight enough that it’s easy to life up to vaccuum underneath, cot gives Tyger good support and he loves it. It’s such a great price for the high quality of this product. They should market this cot in pet stores. Dog “beds” , made using the same basic principle of design of this cot, but of much lesser quality are selling for $60 – $100. And still not even this large. This is large enough for a giant dog plus a smaller dog under 35 lbs. or 2 medium to large dogs. descript says powder coated steel frame, but then if you scroll down, the description from the manufacturer says its stainless steel frame. I have this cot , and the legs are definately stainless steel, and the frame appears to be stainless steel also.
Nice and compact.

The bed was easy to assemble, however the last step to connect the legs was most difficult and require some muscle-power. I broke a sweat after on the first one and took a break. I just received the bed and haven’t used it yet so unable to comment on comfort, however the material seems durable and sturdy.

I put this together in 5 minutes. Although If you follow the directions and sit on the floor to put it together It can take up to and hour and it would be a REAL fight … Stand up place the cot vertical and use leverage to install the legs – quick and easy. Being 250lbs This Cot is like sleeping on a cloud. Very Nice and comfortable. I reviewed COTS for hours and this is the one I settled on and I am Very Happy I did!
The best of all worlds

This thing is flat out awesome. It’s very portable, it doesn’t take up too much room in the text, and it’s very very comfy. The best camp sleeping I’ve had. Out of the box, the posts are a little tight to get into the slots. But, it does loosen up a little over time. Setup and take down is pretty straight forward.
this is THE bang/buck sweet spot

the difficulty other folks have mentioned assembling is just silly… i’m a wimpy 5’8-210 computer dork and had no problem putting together in seconds right out of the box… the tension resulting from force required to insert legs is of course what creates stability… it seems like the perfect amount, well considered… the side rails are formed from 3 pieces of oblong tubing with leg holes provided by aluminum blocks inside the tubes… it feels very satisfyingly sturdy, no wobble… i measure it right at 6 ft long (maybe +1 inch) by 30 inch wide… and just over 9 lbs on my digital fish scale… i compared specs and reviews online between Thermarest (~$200), TravelChair ($ditto’ish), Go-Kot brand’s “e-Cot” ($100) and other cheaper “twisted tent-pole” style knockoffs with iffy durability reviews… for ~$40 this seems like a real sweet spot… with single piece 30 inch metal legs, i accepted up front that this design won’t fit in carry-on luggage vs the fancier twisted tent pole style like Thermarest that packs down to 18″ bag (and around 5 lbs) … that’s the one thing that might get me to go more $$ when filling out the rest of the family’s tent sleep gear.

This cot is outstanding. I bought two and set them up right away to see how difficult it is. The first one took a little time just to get an understanding of what all the parts are. I timed myself for the second one and got it up in three minutes, twenty seconds. I could get it done faster if I was “racing the clock” I just wanted to get a good feel of how long it would take to set up in camp.
Elegant and ample

I got this cot because it’s the only one that has stainless steel parts that touch the ground. This is very important to me because anodized aluminum is not as strong and powder coated steel rusts eventually as did my folding chairs. The assembly was quick and easy and it says rated for 225 lbs. It is longer and wider than most cots and is very compact. The legs are small and elegant, yet very strong as they are solid stainless steel. The only drawback to this item is – it cannot handle point loads too well. In other words you can’t stand on one area too long without it feeling like it’ll punch through. It does distribute load well and feels floaty when you’re on it lying down. So 4 stars instead of 5 because of that small issue.
Smell not TOO bad but left it out overnight to air

Day 1: Spent 15 minutes trying to assemble it without injuring myself. Wondered where I’d gone wrong. Wondered what in the world made me want to buy this thing. Wondered why I inserted one of the poles with the hole facing the wrong way. Managed to put it together but not without some soreness in my hands. Smell not TOO bad but left it out overnight to air.
Better than expected!

I wasn’t sure what to expect after reading some of the reviews but I have to say that it worked out better than I thought. It was easy to assemble and was very stable on slightly uneven ground. I just threw my sleeping bag over it and slept like a baby. Would highly recommend this product.
