my granddaughter is 7 and couldn't sleep on this and she is very tiny. Well made and would be great for kids 5 and under
Basic and effective, but there are issues
This cot is reasonably sturdy and, while not in the slightest bit comfortable for someone 6' tall and 190 pounds, it offers a survivable night's sleep. Two important problems, however, of which you should be aware: 1) Although the swing-out legs offer good stability while you're sleeping, they do not really lock into place. If someone moves the cot without understanding this, they will collapse the moment weight is put on the unit. That's unsafe. 2) If you were thinking of using this unit with the Kamp Rite Single Inflating Pad, as some of the literature seems to suggest -- thing again. It does not work. The pad is designed for use on a flat surface. The Kwik Cot fabric support has a pronounced dip. Using the Kamp Rite pad on this cot will not only create a weird, hot mattressy bubble around the sleeper, it will also ruin the pad.
I have never really enjoyed my kids sleeping on the floor especially if the house or place we are staying in has had pets or smokers (i.e. hotels/motels). The cot folds and packs away easy enough for us to take anywhere and the kids have a comfortable nights rest.
