Here you have a cot that is in the group of collapsible outdoor beds and this means that it needs a simple assembly.

In other words, you have several separate elements that include four legs, two side poles, and the bed fabric. It is very easy to make it ready, and anybody can do this without any extra tool.

The cot comes with a beautifully designed carry bag that opens wide due to its dual zipper, see the picture below.

Materials and construction

All the metal elements are an aluminum alloy, and they are shock corded for ease of use.

From the pictures you realize that the legs are bars, so this is a floor-friendly design and you can use the cot in a floored tent without worrying about tent’s floor.

The fabric is typical for the cots of this type, so this is a durable 600D polyester. Note that they offer it in two different colors.

Who is this DOD Outdoors Bed In Bag Cot for

Regarding the capacity, it can be described as a bit modest, it is officially for users of up to 265 lb (120 kg). This should be good enough for many people, me included, but check also my list of cots for heavy people if you need something stronger.

Regarding the dimensions, it is interesting to see that some describe it as ‘extra wide’. But the bed dimensions are 72 x 28 inches (183 x 72 cm), so its width is good, but check my list of extra wide cots to realize how wide they can be.

As you see from the picture below, the length is not so impressive, so if you are a tall person you might want to check my collections of extra long cots.

Note that the cot is very low, so there is no doubt that you can use it in any camping tent, regardless of how small it can be. This is why I have included it in my list of low cots

But you can still store some gear underneath it even when the cot is so low, such a space under a cot is never completely lost. It is completely different when you sleep on a pad on the floor. 

This cot fits into any tent, no matter how small it can be.
