  • 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.

  • Hard to Assemble

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Lightweight and Sturdy Cot

    This cot is very lightweight and easy to carry in a backpack; it also has its own carrying case with a shoulder strap. The cot was delivered in the manufacturer's box with tags attached, but no directions were included. Assembly is easy to figure out, but requires quite a bit of strength to bend/flex the "M" shaped support legs into the holes in the side rails. Also, the fabric of the cot is barely long enough for the side rails (which come in 3 pieces on each side) to be inserted into the fabric tunnel. I had to stretch the fabric considerably to fully insert the side rails. Otherwise, the fabric is strong, somewhat "breathable" and comfortable to sleep on. Also, the size will fit a regular twin sheet pretty easily if using it as a sleepover cot for children. For the price, this cot is a very good value, and is very sturdy despite it being lightweight to carry.
