Very compact light weight perfect for my motorcycle trips
I've spent several nights on this cot so far.
I use the Therm-A- Rest self-inflatable mattress in conjunction with this cot.
At 63 it gives me the rest I need to be refreshed for the next days ride.
I do admit it takes a little bit to I adjust to this set up and take down procedure.
But after about three or four times you're pro and can be done quite fast.
I like directions that can't be lost, they're stitched into the storage bag
The price scared me off at first, waited around for a sale to buy mine.
Glad I did not compromise.
Overall I'd say this cot is very comfortable. I purchased it while I was in the navy shipyards and needed a place to sleep on duty days. Now that I'm not in the navy it still sees plenty of use when my wife gets fussy.
So far there is no noticeable damage to the set and it still keeps me off the ground.
I saw some reviews complaining about the polls bending. Mine too have acquired some permanent curvature but this has not impacted the cot in any way I've noticed.
When I first used this I weighed about 155 - 160. Now I'm about 180 and still not touching the floor.
I sleep primarily on my back but roll from side to side while falling asleep. Finding a place for your arms seems awkward at first but that goes away.
Oh and I'm about 5'9". I recommend putting most support in the middle, at the head, and at the very bottom. There's room for different configurations.
I would purchase again without hesitation. Between you and me, I sleep better on this thing than when I'm sharing a bed.
The cot can be set up with either four or six set of legs. I tried it with four and it worked. However, I think it should always be used with 6 legs. Even a small person like me (125 pounds) caused more flex than I was comfortable with when using only four legs.
Also, I find it much more comfortable when using a single self-inflating air mattress. The bare cot with no padding works for minimalist camping. If you are car camping or have some sort of gear truck (think bicycle tours), then the mattress helps quite a bit.
Just got it yesterday, followed the great video on line to see how easily this thing goes together. Took me twice as long as the video but it was surprisingly easy to put together. I started at one end and worked my way to the other end. The double pole twist sections do take a little more effort, but as long as you use your feet or knees to secure the cot down on the ground (don't step on the aluminum side poles) it comes together nicely. Sits above the ground, will easily fit into my tent and won't punch holes through the floor. It came apart very easily. It is high quality and clearly says "Made in America". Hope that is true.
Stores in a bag that is half the sized of my sleeping bag and one third the size of my tent. I think it is comfortable enough without a pad, but I will use my pad anyway.
It is a little pricey, but I am very satisfied with my purchase. It answers my needs nicely.
Update March 2015: Big Bend 2015 is over and the cot worked great. I highly recommend it.
I haven't taken it camping, but it does pack smaller than my current camping pad which is nice. I would consider taking it backpacking, but if I'm trying to cut weight I would probably stick to the pad despite its bulkiness. (Heads up, I'm not into all the minimalist/ultralite camping stuff, but I do appreciate versatile equipment such as this cot)
