What type cot is this
The name they use for this tool is FLAMROSE Patented Camping Cots Sturdy Folding Outdoor Cot. I am also not sure if the word folding is the best. Not sure also what is patented because such a design is in some other cots on the market.
In any case, the Flamrose Cot is in the group of instant setup collapsible cots. So this is a tool which needs no assembly and you deploy it literally in seconds. It opens and spreads in all 4 directions like an umbrella, see the pictures:
Who is it for
This is a tool for people who do not want to spend time assembling the cot each time when they use it. Some cots can be very complicated as you probably know. This in particular holds for those users who are on some tour and change the camping place frequently.
The packed size is not particularly impressive, but it is very typical for this type, and you will realize this from the comparison table below. So you have it in a bundle which is 40.5 x 8.6 x 5.5 inches (103 x 22 x 14 cm). Clearly, you will need a car for transportation if you use it as an outdoor tool.
But this is also a spare bed for home use, for sleepovers and for an emergency in general. You have a carry bag included, see the picture, to keep it clean and safe until you need it.
Need something for a nap in the office? This is the tool, note that you even have the bonus pillow included.
Sizewise, this cot is not for very tall people (though they describe it as ‘extra wide and long’). In fact, the bed deck is 75 x 27 inches (191 x 69 cm), which is not so bad for many, but bear its length in mind if you are a tall person.
The capacity, however, is impressive, so it can support up to 400 lb (181 kg). This is not surprising in view of all the steel legs and support bars which you have here, 26 pieces in total, unbelievable, but see the picture:
Using this cot in a tent
As you realize from the picture above, the feet are a really floor friendly design, so you will not have issues regardless where you use this cot. It has 10 of them so the weight is well-distributed and there will be no much pressure on the floor.
How about sleeping pads
I love to stress that you do not need any pad as long as you use this cot at home or in a relatively warm environment, except for extra comfort. But you may use a pad with a bit of insulation if this is a cold environment, see some great models here.
Though don’t spend much on the insulation because you are off the ground and you lose far less warmth than when you sleep on the ground. This is the usual advantage of using a cot.
I like what they write about themselves as a brand originating from a group of designers who are masters at combining aesthetic elements of design and ergonomic aspects of coziness.
This is a really nice statement, but I appreciate even more this: “We don’t believe in taking shortcuts or sacrificing quality in any way.” They have my respect for this. In view of this, it is no surprise that they offer 6 months replacement warranty for this cot.
Good and less good features
Here is my short summary:
- Quality materials.
- Express setup.
- Bonus pillow.
- Not so big, but the size is quite typical.
As of the moment of writing this text, the price of this cot is $87. So it is a bit more expensive than some of its competitors, see some of them in the comparison table below. But I do think it is worth the price, this is a nicely built cot.
On Amazon, the average rating of the Flamrose cot is 4.6/5. So this is exceptionally high, but not surprising, see my own rating here:
