16 Extra Long Camping Cots For Tall People – Above 210 cm

Share

Here I present extra long camping cots for tall people, all above 210 cm (82.7 inches) in length. They are also very wide and with a great capacity so if you are a big person this is the text for you.


What this is about

Obviously, this text is about the longest cots on the market. The text will be regularly updated when new cots in this category appear on the market, so stay tuned.

The list below includes only the cots longer than 210 cm (82.7 inches), just to know what to expect. Some of them are military style cots with end bars, and these take a few centimeters of the effective useful length which you normally have. So to avoid pressure spots, bear this in mind when you see the length; check which type of cot this is and then see if the length is appropriate to you.

But some of them are without end bars and in such designs, the indicated length is indeed the full useful length. The cots with such a design are usually (but not always) with an instant setup, no assembly.

On the other hand, such long cots are also usually extra wide as well. So if you want a wide bed this is the place to check.


Extra long cots side by side

So here is the list of the cots for tall people ordered by length from the longest to the shortest (which is 210 cm as I mentioned above):

 

All these cots are collapsible and nicely packable. At least one of them is backpack-portable, can you believe this? Note, this list includes only single cots. If you need a double wide camping cot for 2 people, please check my separate text.


1. Eureka Camping Cot XL

This is the longest cot here but observe that its capacity is quite modest 300 lb (136 kg). This is a military-style cot with the typical X-shaped legs structure as you can see from the picture.

The fabric is 600D x 300D heavy duty polyester with back-coating for durability.  The cot comes with a carry bag included, and you also get a zippered pocket 18 x 8 inches (46 x 20 cm) to store small items for an easy access, see it in the picture above.

It assembles very quickly, all you have to do is to unfold it and to add the end bars, and the cot is ready. Note, there are some small differences in numbers on Amazon and those presented here which are directly from the Eureka brand site so they should be accurate.

4. Browning Camping Titan Cot XP

Here you have the bed and frame that look like a military style cot, so you have the two end bars visible in the picture below. But its legs structure is different, so this is a particularly sturdy construction.

The legs are angled and this prevents the cot from “rocking”, while its telescoping support in the center makes the cot even stronger than the X-legs in the military style cots. Observe also the cross bars which support the legs.

The fabric is 600D polyester, and the frame is aluminum with sturdy steel connectors. It folds up easily and fits into a carry bag so it transports and stores easily when not in use.

Stand out features
  • Two side pockets and one of them is detachable, to use as a toiletry bag in the camp.
  • A large Velcro pillow pocket section where you can put clothes to create a pillow or a headrest at the height you prefer if you do not carry a pillow. Really cool.

All these features you can see in this video, please have a look:

Specifications
  • Price: $120.
  • Weight: 20.5 lb (9.3 kg).
  • Dimensions (L x W x H): 85 x 40 x 21 in (216 x 102 x 53 cm).
  • Zippered carry bag: 48 x 9 x 5 in (122 x 23 x 13 cm).
  • Weight capacity: 450 lb (205 kg).

6. Teton Sports Universal Cot

This is a bit different design from its more famous cousin above, so the legs are X-shaped instead of the S-shape design in the Outfitter cot. It has been on the market for a number of years already and it has stood the test of the time. This is a reliable camping bed with a very reasonable price tag.

I think they have used appropriate words in the name of this cot, it is indeed colossal with its dimensions of 85 x 40 inches (216 x 101.6 x 52 cm). This is why I have included it also in my list of extra wide cots.

The capacity of this cot is also impressive as everybody else, so it can support up to 400 lb (181 kg). Please see more in my separate text.

8.  Byer of Mine Heritage Cot

Believe it or not, but this is the only wooden cot on the market, or at least, I have not seen any other cot of this type.

Although built from wood, this is a very stable and strong structure, and completely collapsible. The setup is the same as in any other X-frame shaped military cot. The carry bag is very nicely designed and in the color that matches the wood of the cot.

Specifications
  • Weight: 24 lb (10.9 kg).
  • Capacity: 375 lb (170 kg).

9. Byer of Mine Military Cot

The only difference between this cot and its cousin above is the material, and this is the reflected in the weight. So the cot is in the same military style. The length is impressive, with 213 cm it is in the middle of the range which you have here in the list.

10. Guide Gear XL Magnum Cot

Here you have a great combination of the size, capacity, and the price. It looks like a military cot, so the end bars are here and they take a few centimeters, but the legs’ design is different and more sophisticated.

11. Coleman Big-N-Tall Cot

This is a very simple design, a typical military style cot with the usual assembly which only implies unfolding it and adding the two end bars. The 213 length and the 89 widths make a great sleeping platform even for extremely heavy people. The capacity of this cot is 600 lb, so this is in the top group with respect to this feature.

13. Portal 83 Heavy Duty Cot

Being one of many military-type cots here, this Portal Cot is not unique, but it comes with a very good price tag. It is available in two nice colors. They describe it as portable and indeed it is, but just to short distances, you need a car for such a cot.

14. Texsport King Kot Giant Easy Set-Up

The name of this cot tells you a lot. You have a great length and width here, 83 x 35 inches (211 x 89 cm) bed size. As you realize from the picture below, this is a military-style tool, so you have to add those two end bars which give it the needed stability.

15. Timber Ridge Deluxe XL Camp Cot

This is one of the cots without end bars, and in addition to this, it is without assembly. So you just spread it like an umbrella. Its 6 legs are supported with crossbars, and the legs on the two ends are pointed outwards. Such a structure is very stable and the cot doesn’t shake when you turn on the bed.

The frame is all steel and the cot is quite high, so if used in a larger camping tent you can put lots of stuff underneath it and save the space for other things.

Specifications
  • Price: $85.
  • Weight: 24.7 lb (11.2 kg).
  • Capacity: 300 lb (136 kg).
  • Size (L x W x H): 83 x 31 x 20 in (211 x 79 x 51 cm).
  • Packed size: 40 x 7 x 5.5 in (102 x 18 x 14 cm).

16. Helinox Cot Max

This is a very special cot in the list here and there are several reasons for this. It is exceptionally lightweight when compared to the other cots here, so you have only 2.7 kg (5.9 lb). This makes it a backpack-portable cot and I have included it in this category here in the site.

See also its incredible packed size to realize that you can easily attach it to a backpack. So this cot is very much suitable for very tall hikers. But if you need something ultra lightweight of this type, for hikers and backpackers, please check this text.

On the other hand, it is collapsible and it needs assembly because of its legs, sidebars, and the bed deck, which are all separate. But the assembly is really easy and done in a couple of minutes and without any tool.

Observe also its height – it is such that you can use it even in the lowest solo bivy tents. There are no end bars, just to know, so you have 210 cm of true length here. But see the price…

Specifications
  • Price: $430.
  • Weight: 5.9 lb (2.7 kg).
  • Size (L x W x H): 82.7 x 29.5 x 6.3 in (210 x 75 x 16 cm).
  • Packed size: 23 x 6.3 in (58 x 16 cm).
  • Capacity: 320 lb (145 kg).

Read my review.


Summary

So to conclude this review of extra long camping cots for tall people, as you see you have two main groups:

  • the military-style cots which need some simple assembly, and,
  • the group of the instant cots without end bars and without assembly.

The Helinox Cot Max is something totally different, the only truly backpack portable cot for very tall people, but it is by far the most expensive cot here in the list.

The length is obviously great for all of them, and many of them are very similar, so this may all be about small details and the price. The weight is not essential here because you will use them at places with a motorized access.
