I really like these cots, however, of the 2 we ordered, only one came with the bars for the head and foot. We had to be created for the head and foot bar using poles and lashing them to the corners.
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!
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*
