    • Great!

      Super easy to assemble, very sturdy, and comfortable. I was convinced to buy this for car camping and house guests after spending a week sleeping on it at a friend's house. It can be difficult to get the first legs in but with some maneuvering it can be done by one person. I do not sag on it (130 lbs) and the length is great (5'9")

    • We love it!

      We own a more traditional cot, but this one is more comfy (and was cheaper!)

    • Satisfied!

      I was concerned whether the setup would be difficult but it turned out easy for me. The legs are solid steel and act to stretch the cod. You need to stand up and use your body weight to push it down against the ground and it will go in easily. It may be hard for young kids (<10) though because they don't have the height and strength. The legs act like springs when you sleep on it. Very comfortable but for heavy-weight people (200lbs), you may feel it a little too soft and unstable.

    • Hard to Assemble

      Very difficult to put together. It takes a lot of strength. Not for a frail person.

    • Great - but not what I was expecting.

      I ordered this product and got one that looked exactly like it but it was not what I was expecting. I bought this for a hiking trip in Colorado and weight was a major concern. It didn't come with instructions but I didn't have any trouble whatsoever in putting it together or taking it apart. The one I received was rated for 225lbs and weighed in at just over 10lbs. I was disappointed and debated on taking it on my trip but my departure was only 2 days away from when I received it, so it went with me. I weigh 190lbs and it handled my weight fine although I wouldn't sit on one area for any extended period of time. Laying prone it distributes my weight perfectly. Hindsight I would have bought an air mattress only because of the weight. I would still recommend this as long as you know what it really weighs and works for you. It is built well, fit in my backpack (the support pieces I tied to the outside of my pack) and it can also be used as a very compact cot stored in a closet for when kids come to visit. If you find enough of a flat area, you will find that you get a very good nights sleep on it.

    • Sturdy, good quality, great price

      Takes some muscle to put together but very sturdy. I'm 6'1" 205lbs and the large frame size gives me some room to spread out. The lower profile is perfect for my 4'8" tent height. The alps mountaineering xl dual foam mat fits it perfectly.

    • Woks great...once you get it assembled.

      Like other reviewers, I found it difficult to assemble. The fabric slightly ripped as I worked to put the long rails together. Once together, it was sturdy and long and my 6'2" 225 son thought it was comfortable, but he had to help me assemble. I barely got the rails to work, I was not strong enough to fit the four legs/bases in. I bought it to be an "off the floor" bed for my grand daughter. She loved it and it worked. I'm a bit worried that if I break it down, I won't be able to put it back together without help.

    • One review said the side rails broke down into 3 pieces and would fit in a backpack and is lightweight. is that true?

      • Hello Lindalu, this item is light weight and features a compact design. Thank you for shopping with us.

      • This is NOT a cot meant for backpacking. It is a FABULOUS cot for car-camping. Its weight is FAR FAR FAR too much for backpacking use. I speak as a 40-year backpacker and camper. I have these and am very happy with them for my car-camping purposes, but would never remotely consider this cot for backpacking.

    • Does the cot really weigh only 4.5lbs? What is the shipping weight?

      • Thank you for the question. Our support just checked and the cot weighs 9 pounds and 13 ounces. We are sorry for the incorrect answer.

    • Does it actually fold up, or have to be disassembled each time?

      • Yes, this camp cot folds up.

      • This is NOT a "folding cot". It is not of the commonly understood 'folding' type that has permanently attached legs which merely fold in and out from a hinged point, nor a frame that folds in half or thirds. Instead, the legs and frame must be assembled and disassembled. It packs up nicely, mind you, but it NOT a 'folding' cot.

    • How long is the cot when folded up? Thanks much

      • The cot is approximately 37.5 inches long when folded..

      • When disassembled and broken down, it’s roughly 3' x 3" x 8" and packs fairly flat.
