Key features & benefits
- Folding cot.
- No assembly.
- Storage pouches.
- Great capacity.
- Great price.
This Coastrail Outdoor Camping Cot for Adults belongs to the group of folding cots. More precisely it folds nicely in an elongated tube that measures 40.2 x 8.7 x 5.5 inches (102 x 22 x 14 cm) when stored in its included carry bag.
This means that there is no particular assembly, you can have it ready in seconds, and equally fast you can pack it. The picture above shows some steps in the process.
The cot comes with an integrated head incline, below you see how it looks. This makes it similar to this Alpcour Folding Camping Cot.
There are several of them, below you see the removable pillow and the straps that are included to keep your sleeping pad in place. When you do not use a pad, you simply pass the straps under the bed, this is shown in the picture above.
This is not all, you also have a sizeable storage set on the side. It is shown below and you realize there are several separate pouches for small items. You can keep here your books, a phone, glasses, keys, and similar stuff.
You have a steel frame with oval tubing that makes it very strong. Numerous support bars stabilize the bed against lateral movement. There are a couple of straps also added to stabilize the frame.
Some of the legs are riveted and the rest of the cot folds around them, see below how this looks.
The legs are with plastic caps (the picture above) so they will not damage the floor, and you can use the cot even in a floored family camping tent.
The bed fabric is polyester with a denier value of 600D so this is a strong but quite typical fabric for such cots.
Who is it for
Capacity-wise, the cot officially supports the weight of up to 450 lb (204 kg). This qualifies it to be included in my list of cots for heavy people. No doubt this capacity should be good enough for almost everybody.
Size-wise, the cot’s dimensions are very good. It is not particularly long but it is wide. The bed size is 75 x 28.15 inches (191 x 71 cm). Note that it is not very tall, you have 14.5 inches (37 cm) of clearance. But as usual with such cots, you can store lots of your camping stuff underneath the bed and it will be out of your way.
Weight-wise, the cot is not very light, it weighs 16.1 lb (7.3 kg). This, together with the packed size which you have already seen, tells you that you would not want to carry it anywhere, and the cot is for places with a car access.
But the carry bag is included and it is with a shoulder strap so you can carry it short distances, or at least store the cot in it and keep it clean from the dust.
Price-wise, this is a true bargain, excellent value for the money.
- Weight: 16.1 lb (7.3 kg).
- Capacity: 450 lb (204 kg).
- Dimensions: 75 x 28.15 in (191 x 71 cm).
- Height (headrest/cot): 19.3/14.5 in (49/37 cm).
- Packed size: 40.2 x 8.7 x 5.5 in (102 x 22 x 14 cm).
