What this is about
As of the moment of writing the text, this Hey Foly Folding Camping Cot with Mattress is completely unique on the market. It is collapsible so it needs a simple assembly as typical for such cots. But this is all easily done and without extra tools.
The picture below shows its all elements that are described farther in the text. You realize there are many of them, but this is not surprising for such a feature-rich cot.
This all packs in its included carry bag which is quite compact, its dimensions are shown below:
Integrated inflatable air pad with pillow
The bed deck is in fact an inflatable air pad that is 3.1 inches (7.9 cm) thick. But when you have it integrated like this, it is far more stable than when you put a pad on a cot.
There are sleeves on the sides (see the picture below) where you pass the side poles. So this is a very stable construction without the usual bouncing effect that such air pad normally have.
There are no many cots with such a design. One more great example is this Helinox Cot One Convertible that is with insulation.
Integrated pillow & storage features
The picture below shows that you have an integrated headrest so you can manage without extra pillow. Observe also the storage set on the side.
But this is not all, there is also a storage hammock that attaches underneath the cot. So you have quite a number of storage options to keep you stuff at hand.
Integrated inflation/deflation electric valve
Such air pads are normally never self-inflating, but here you have this. They achieved it because of an integrated electric valve. As of the moment of writing this text, this is the only cot with such a valve on the market.
This electric valve is with a rechargeable battery and you can charge it though its USB port. It inflates the pad in 20 seconds.
The bed is supported with three main legs shown in the picture below. They are equipped with locking mechanisms that keep them firmly in place. Observe the feet on each of them and the hub elements for extensions, and the connecting bars in between.
In the pictures below you can see some about attaching these legs to the side poles. This is a lever locking system that provides a good tension to the fabric/pad.
The package includes also 12 extensions that can easily be attached to the hub elements. This design is very similar to some of its competitors, you can see it in the mentioned Helinox cot and also in the OneTigris Lightweight Camping Cot with Leg Extenders.
Using this cot in a tent
Each of the 12 extensions is with feet caps, but they are narrow, so I would not use them in a floored tent without some extra protection for the floor.
The two heights with and without extensions are 15/6.7 inches (38/17 cm). So you realize that the cot is very high with extensions. In this setup you can use it as a bench for sitting as well.
Without the extensions, it is very low and it can fit in any low tent. This is why I have included this cot in my list of low camping cots.
In both setups you have space underneath the cot to store your gear. This holds in particular when it is with extensions. In this case you have 0.57 cubic meters of volume for storage.
The air pad is with an official R-value of 1.7. This makes it suitable for warm weather camping only. So make sure you add something extra if you plan to use it in a tent in a cold environment.
The fabric used for the sleeping pad is a 40D ripstop nylon with a TPU coating.
The metal elements are a high-strength 7075 aluminum alloy. The hub elements are probably nylon.
Who is this Hey Foly Folding Camping Cot with Mattress for
Regarding the capacity, the cot is quite good, its officially capacity is up to 330 lb (150 kg). This should work for most of potential users.
Regarding the dimensions, they are very impressive, you can see the numbers below. So if you are a tall person, this is a cot for you. Note also that there are no end bars in the feet and head area, and you are safe from pressure spots.
Regarding the weight, it is a bit difficult to rate it properly because this is not a typical cot. You have a pad included, plus all those extensions for the legs. In view of this, the total weight of 9.5 lb (4.3 kg) is excellent.
You have already seen its packed size, so here again, bear in mind all that this cot includes. It is simply excellent.
Regarding the price, it is more than fair for what you have here, a true bargain in fact.

So you have seen it, this Hey Foly Folding Camping Cot with Mattress comes with a combination of features that you cannot find in any other cot on the market. At least, this is as of the moment of writing this text.
For most situations you do not need any extra pad, you have a set of 2-in-1 products here. The price is more than adequate for what it offers.
The cot is ideal for family camping, traveling, for sudden guests at home, and you can also use it in the office to take a rest. I have included it in my list of camping cots with air mattress.
