So, how to choose

You have seen my list of 13 Best Camping Cots Under 50 Dollars. Those are great outdoor gifts, but how to choose?

  • If you are looking for a cot for somebody who is big and needs a wide cot, then consider the numbers 3, 4, and 9 in the list.
  • If you want an express setup cot which packs nicely and does not take much space when packed, then certainly check the numbers 1, 3, 11, and 13.
  • If you need a folding cot which is also a kind of express setup and it looks like an ordinary bed, then go for the cots 2, 7, and 8.
  • The only cot with includes mattress is the Coleman Comfortsmart, the number 2 above, but bear in mind that it is quite small.
