Key features

  • Folding cot.
  • Reclining design.
  • Easy to use.
  • Reasonable price.
  • Carry bag included.

Where to buy

This cot is available on Amazon, so if you are lucky you might find it at your local Amazon store and save on shipping.


What type of a camping cot is this

Here you have a typical example of a folding cot as you realize from the name of this Eltow Folding Camping Cot. So it folds from two sides towards the center and the result is what you see below. I have included it in my list of best folding cots:

Note also that it comes with a stuff bag shown below. It has straps to carry it short distances, and the bag is good to have and to keep it clean when stored at home for a longer time.

You also have a pillow here, it is attachable and removable. But note that this is not a padded cot, if you need such a type, check this list with some great padded camping cots.

Reclining design

This cot transforms to a lounger due to its easy to use reclining system. You have 5 different positions and changing them is easy, just pull the bar and unhook:

Materials

This is a steel construction and the fabric is among the strongest you will find in such cots. This is a waterproof and tear-resistant 1680D Oxford cloth that can withstand constant use.

Using this cot in a tent

The legs are bars and there are four of them, so it will not sink on a soft terrain. You can safely use it also in a larger family camping floored tent.

There is 12 inches (30 cm) clearance between the bed deck and the floor. This is lots of space to store your camping gear.


Who is it for

Capacity-wise, the cot can accommodate people of up to 350 lb (159 kg) and this is obviously good enough for most of the users. But if you still need something stronger, see my list with extra strong camping cots for heavy people.

Size-wise, with the dimensions of 75 x 27.5 inches (190 x 70 cm), this is a reasonably large cot. But you have a frame around so the effective bed is a bit smaller. If you need something bigger please check this list with extra large camping cots.

Regarding the weight & packed size, being a folding cot, it remains large when packed so it needs some space in the car. But it is thin when packed, only 6.7 inches (17 cm), so it can fit in narrow spaces. It is a bit heavy, but you have very durable materials used in its construction, hence the weight.


Good and less good features

Here is my short summary:

Thumb up icon.

  • High-level craftsmanship.
  • Recliner.
  • Pillow included.
  • Reasonable price.
  • Carry bag.
  • Easy to use.

Thumb down icon for cons.

  • Large when packed.
The price & rating

This cot is on Amazon-US with the price tag of around $86 and I find it reasonable for such a quality item. Please see how I rate it:

Eltow Portable Folding Camping Cot vs Competitors

I have decided to show you this Eltow cot side by side with two other cots built in the same style. So all of them are folding and very easy to use. It is heavier than the other two, but this is a steel structure and its capacity is bigger.

It is also more expensive, but this is the only reclining cot here. Please follow the links for more.

Final thoughts

So Eltow Portable Folding Camping Cot is portable and you can take it to camp or set it up in your patio, garden, yard or poolside, or use as an emergency bed. I love its reclining design as it allows you to adjust the back and turn it into a chaise bed or a comfortable chair.

This is a robust, sturdy and durable steel structure but elegant at the same time, and the nicely designed pillow is an extra bonus. I have included it in my list of best car camping cots.

Check the Eltow folding cot on Amazon.
