I purchased this because I am getting up there (late 50s) and although I am small and in good shape, I don't want to be so close to the ground anymore. I was able to open an set this up fairly simply, and close it as well, with little effort. I was the envy of my camp group with this above-ground double cot and I highly recommend it for those who are more in the market for "glamping" i.e., you love the outdoors and nature but also appreciate the comforts of home. I wouldn't recommend anything larger than a double mattress on top of it.
I bought it when my child still very young and we both fit but now she's taller than me, it became crowded but it doesn't lessen the usefulness and fun this cot is giving us.
This sleeping bag had PLENTY of room for my husband and I (we're both about 5'8", 165 and 175). It was warm, but I don't know if a 0 degree rating is accurate. Yes, we're from Southern California and NOT accustomed to real cold, but it was in the high 30's overnight and my legs and feet were cold. My upper body, with a long sleeve shirt and a hoodie was warm, but long underwear and socks were not enough for my legs and feet. If you're 'tougher' than us Californian's in cold weather, this might be ok for you. It's definitely VERY comfortable and big! We paired this with the Kamp-Rite Double Kwik Cot and they fit together perfectly! VERY glad I spent the extra $10 and went for the warmer one.
