This cot is small and light weight while still being extremely comfortable. It fits in my smaller shorter dome tent easier than the larger cots. My kids like to sleep on it at home if we have guests using their beds. It is more comfortable than the military style cots as it does not have the metals bars at the top and bottom. If you are camping with other people that are sleeping on air mattresses this cot will allow you to participate in the conversation without feeling literally looking down on them. It was a little tricky to setup the first time, but easy after that. I have had it for six months without any problems. It was a great price and less expensive than the full sized cots, so I would definitely buy it again from Overstock.com. *By submitting a review, each employee received a sweepstakes entry*
I bought this cot for my 9 year old Autistic son who likes to sleep on the floor. I figured he may be more comfortable on this and it would help him get that sensory need of the hard surface instead of sleeping on the floor. He really loves it! He likes the color, we got the blue, he's sleep on it every night now. It was easy to put together just a few steps and it's easy to close and store. Also it's very sturdy as he is a rough boy and it's still standing lol Good buy for us, probably going to get another for my other son in another color!
The cot defined does not fit in a 4 person tent. You need a family size tent. You also need the mattress pad to complete the cot otherwise you have the bar in the middle which is a little uncomfortable.
This cot is sturdy and comfortable. It is slightly longer, wider, and higher off the ground than the traditional military cots. I am 5’10” and my head and feet would hit the cross bars at the end of the regular sized military cots, which made them uncomfortable. This cot is longer and does not have the metal bars at the ends, so I find it more comfortable to sleep on. I use it for guests at home and for camping trips with a roll up foam sleeping pad on top for added comfort. Since it is larger than most cots, it only fits in my six man dome tent the long way, which cuts the capacity in the tent to only three people. It works great in my house and in large roomy tents. I have had this cot for about six months and I have used it six or seven times without problem. The zipper pull tab broke off the zipper slider on the storage pouch shown on the side of the cot, but I have been pleased with the overall quality of the cot compared to others that I have tried. Overstock’s price on this cot was as good as or better than what I found anywhere else on the Internet. *By submitting a review, each employee received a sweepstakes entry*
