Easy to set up. My son is OVER 300 LBS and over 6 ft 4 and fits very well on this cot. rolling over is no problem. Very glad we spent just a little extra to get this cot.
I was very excited to receive this product from the many good reviews I read and from a buddy of mine that actually bought one too, however, during my initial setup the very top right corner on the chair back side ripped!!! My initial thought was "#@% I did something wrong" but upon further investigation into the inside of the tent I noticed that the tent was sewn wrong thereby attaching the side of the tent to the corner further down than it was meant to be. Imagine my sigh of relief...I'm hoping this is just a rare occurrence because the rest of the tent cot is very well made (and I checked EVERYWHERE). I did a replacement request *** within 20 minutes of opening box so I'm crossing my fingers this will be an easy exchange...but onto the review. I like the foam mattress that it comes with but I may still add another thin air mattress as I prefer the comfort for my back. The head room that this oversized tent cot comes with is just right for my 6 ft (200+ lb) frame while sitting toward the center but you wouldn't be able to hang a light there at the same time. That was a nice surprise too, that it even included ties at the very center to do so. There's 4 hanging pockets on each end (3 small and 1 large that has a velcro closure) but they face toward the outside of the tent and seems it would be a little awkward getting things into or out of unless you were grabbing whatever out from the outside when the ends are open but this is a very small inconvenience for myself. There's a small vent door on the top center of each side door that is secured with velcro running down the sides to keep it open or closed at any position that I imagine is to cut back on condensation inside (very clever) or just for someone else to peek inside and talk to you (Ummm, ok) as it is located on the outside portion of the doors. The poles up top are simple enough with ends that are simply placed into the holes on plastic connectors at each end and are held in place by plastic connectors that just snap onto the poles, very convenient for small areas as you don't have to start feeding the poles through anything. The zippers have color coordinated cords for easy opening (black for outside tent portion and yellow for inside mesh). The legs come with sturdy plastic feet attached to them with teeth for traction. I knew that it was a 4-in-1 system (chair, lounge, cot and tent cot) when buying it but found that the chair configuration was somewhat larger than I had hoped for as I cannot sit all the way back and have my feet on the ground at the same time. Maybe this would be better for someone larger than myself as there is plenty of room on this cot to fit those individuals but I have to scoot up and forgo using it comfortably and it's not the reason I got this to begin with. Everything else works just fine though. All-in-all this tent cot is what I hoped for and more (minus the defect) and once I get my replacement I will definately give the quality of this product an EXCELLENT and refer it to all my friends. I hope this helps others looking to buy this.
After reading a few reviews some people complained that they could still feel the ground under the mat...at 160 lbs I didn't come close to it. The memory foam is really comfortable and I slept great. It's fairly easy to roll up and I had no problem getting it back into its case...way easier than trying to do the same with my sleeping bag! It's lightweight too. No backaches this camping trip even after 4 nights. Perfect camping pad!
I was looking for a family backpacking tent (4 small kids, 2 adults) under 10 lbs and finally found one. I like the all-season features of the tent i.e., that the rain fly goes down to the ground, with plenty of places to put stakes. We frequently backpack over 10,000 ft. elevation. The description lacked in detail but I took a chance on it. It arrived before the estimated delivery date, and opened the box to find the tent came in a light mini-duffel-style bag. Poles are good quality and lightweight. I set it up in the backyard (it's winter where I live). Setup was easy and intuitive, I could do it without assistance. Simple basic tent setup. There are doors on opposite sides of the tent, each with a zippered screen. The vestibule has two parallel zippers and covered a larger area than expected. The part of the fly that covers the opposite door has a single vertical zipper, and could also be used as a mini-vestibule as the fly can be pulled out and staked about 18 inches from the door. I was happy to see that the inside of the tent was all seam-taped, both on the rain fly and the tent floor. I spent a frosty night in it with my son and the temperature bottomed out at 25 degrees F, and felt no moisture inside in the morning. I feel comfortable that this tent could take a hard rain/wind and still keep the water out. Can't say that for Coleman. Once the weather warms I'll test it with the garden hose. Thanks Overstock!
