What this is about

This Goplus Foldable cot should not be mixed with yet another cot from this brand presented here in the site which is a completely different model.

So what you have here is a true folding cot which folds to half of its size when packed.  As you realize it remains quite large when packed, the packed dimensions are 42 x 30 x 4.5 in (107 x 76 x 11 cm).

But this is also a nicely padded cot, see the picture, and I have included it in my separate list of padded cots.

This is how it looks when folded.

Who is it for

Size-wise, the dimensions of this cot are great. It measures (L x W x H) 84 x 30 x 16 inches (213 x 76 x 41 cm) so clearly, it is very long and it deserves to be included in my exclusive list with extra long cots.

If you need something much wider, please consult this list with extra wide cots.

Capacity-wise, this cot is not so impressive, the declared capacity is 250 lb (113 kg). This is enough for most users, but if you need something stronger for big guys, please check my list with cots for heavy people.

Weight-wise, they write it is ‘easy to carry’. But in view of the earlier mentioned packed size and its 22 lb (10 kg) of weight, it does not look so easy to me. Nevertheless, this is quite a typical weight for such a type and you will realize this from the comparison table below.


Materials & Construction

The frame is iron and it is equipped with a locking mechanism shown in the picture, for extra stability when you sleep. But when folded, you have a Velcro strap to keep it closed, it is visible in the picture of the folded bed given above.

They write that the material inside is cotton, which is quite unusual for padding in such items. The cover is 600D x 300D polyester, so this is a durable fabric.

Note that all metal areas where the cot folds are covered by padded flaps so you do not touch iron anywhere. There are no bars anywhere under the deck, only the frame around which is covered by the padding.

The legs are bars, and you have plastic feet added for floor protection, see the picture below. So this is a design which you can use in a floored tent without any extra protection.

Also, with such three bars on the ground, the weight is distributed and the cot will not sink considerably regardless of where you use it.

Note that you have 16 inches (41 cm) of clearance under the cot, so when used in a tent, you can store lots of gear underneath it. This is one extra advantage of using cots in tents.

With such a padding, you will not need any extra pad for insulation in a 3-season use for camping.

In the table below you can see how this Goplus cot stands when compared with some other padded cots presented here in the site. Note that the frame is different, this is the only one with bars instead of standard legs. It is slightly larger and taller, but its packed size is much bigger because it folds only once, the other models fold twice.
