This Kamp Rite double tent cot review is about a two-person tent cot for camping, or for emergency situations at home or anywhere else. It offers an off-ground comfort and full protection from elements.
Benefits of using this tent cot
- Complete protection from elements.
- Full comfort for one or two people.
- Simple and easy setup.
- Sturdy and reliable tool.
Kamp-Rite double tent cot offers sleeping comfort for two grown-up people. It is constructed in such a way that you are 11 inches (28 cm) above the ground, safe from insects and water. Staying off the ground is very important for insulation and dampness.
This is a sturdy aluminum frame construction, exceptionally easy to set up as you will be able to see in the two videos below. As you realize from the picture above, you have two doors and two windows and all of them are with a mesh to protect you from insects.
The construction of this tool is such that it can easily be converted into a lounge chair (see the picture below) which you will surely use during the day.
Yet another option is to use it just as a cot within a standard big camping tent in case you need it so. The setup is easy, and the roof is supported by two poles which make an X-shaped structure above your head.
The package includes a waterproof rain fly which completely covers the tent and the cot, see the picture below.
The tent is with two doors on the two longer sides, a really convenient feature. The other two sides contain huge windows, you will be able to see this in the video below. So ventilation in this tent cot should never be an issue.
The tent is of a proper size for two people. From the specifications below you will see that its dimensions are 213 x 135 x 102 cm. You can compare this with some truly great 2-person tents available on the market like Nemo Galaxy 2P with the size 229 x 137 x 102 cm, or Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2 with 218 x 132 x 97 cm.
But you will notice also that the two longer walls of this tent are practically vertical, which makes a lot of space in the shoulders height. With standard ground tents this is not always so. So this tent is truly roomy.
