    • Sturdy, good quality, great price
      Verified Purchase

      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.

    • Woks great...once you get it assembled.
      Verified Purchase

      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.

      I was very pleased to see that even though the form factor for the cot is very small. All the parts and connections seemed very high-quality. In fact I was impressed enough to purchase another one.

    • Small and Light Weight
      Verified Purchase

      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 *By submitting a review, each employee received a sweepstakes entry*

    • Q:

      "One review said the side rails broke down into 3 pieces and would fit in a backpack and is lightweight. is that true?"

      • A:

        Hello Lindalu, this item is light weight and features a compact design. Thank you for shopping with us.

      • A:

        This is NOT a cot meant for backpacking. It is a FABULOUS cot for car-camping. Its weight is FAR FAR FAR too much for backpacking use. I speak as a 40-year backpacker and camper. I have these and am very happy with them for my car-camping purposes, but would never remotely consider this cot for backpacking.

    • Q:

      "Does the cot really weigh only 4.5lbs? What is the shipping weight?"

      • A:

        Thank you for the question. Our support just checked and the cot weighs 9 pounds and 13 ounces. We are sorry for the incorrect answer.

    • Q:

      "Does it actually fold up, or have to be disassembled each time?"

      • A:

        Yes, this camp cot folds up.

      • A:

        This is NOT a "folding cot". It is not of the commonly understood 'folding' type that has permanently attached legs which merely fold in and out from a hinged point, nor a frame that folds in half or thirds. Instead, the legs and frame must be assembled and disassembled. It packs up nicely, mind you, but it NOT a 'folding' cot.

    • Q:

      "How long is the cot when folded up? Thanks much"

      • A:

        The cot is approximately 37.5 inches long when folded..

      • A:

        When disassembled and broken down, it’s roughly 3' x 3" x 8" and packs fairly flat.
