Mission Mountain A4 Camping Cot review.

The Mission Mountain A4 Camping Cot is a collapsible lightweight and exceptionally compact backpack portable outdoor bed that sets up in less than a minute. From the Quick-Lock legs attachment to the anti-slip stabilizers, every detail is meticulously crafted for ease and functionality. 

Key features & benefits

  • Collapsible cot.
  • Quick-Lock legs attachment.
  • Very light.
  • Exceptionally compact when packed.
  • Side pockets for storage.
  • Carry bag included.


This Mission Mountain A4 Camping Cot belongs to the type of collapsible cots. This means that it needs a simple assembly when you want to use it as a bed.

But you will do all needed in less than a minute, attaching legs is very easy due to a quick-lock mechanism that you have here.

From the picture below you can understand what this means; the handle allows you to attach the leg without force, so anybody can do this with ease. When this is done with all three legs, tension is created in the bed fabric and the bed is ready.

Note that there are only three sets of shock-corded bars that create legs. This reduces the weight and packed size, as well as the setup time of course.

For transportation and for storage at home, this all packs in its included carry bag with the dimensions shown below. As you realize, it is incredibly compact when packed.

To disassemble the bed, break it down by pressing the lever buttons to release the frame. They call this EZLock. You have these levers on both sides of a leg handle, the picture below is added to see it clearly. They have a detailed manual so there is nothing to guess.

As a useful bonus, the cot comes with a set of three side pockets (the picture below) to keep your small items off-ground and close at hand.

The metal parts (two side poles and three leg-sets) are an aero-grade 7075-T6 aluminum alloy.

Observe that the bars are close to the ground, the picture below, so you will never feel them under the bed deck. This is useful also if you use the cot on a very soft ground, due to these bars, it will never sink deep. You can use the cot practically everywhere.

Anti-slip stabilizers.

They have added also those anti-slip stabilizers to keep the cot in place. I find this a floor-friendly design, and there is no doubt you can use the cot in a floored tent without any extra protection.

Regarding fabric, it appears that they have two different versions on Amazon, so make sure you choose what suits you better. Namely, one is with an Oxford silver-coated polyester, and the other is with a breathable mesh fabric.

The mesh version is better for a warm weather camping. The silver-coated version is definitely better if you plan camping in a cold environment. This material will reflect your body heat back to you. 

They write that the cot fabric is washable. From the pictures you realize also that they have the cot in several nice colors.

Who is the Mission Mountain A4 Camping Cot for

Regarding the capacity, this cot is officially for users of up to 330 lb (160 kg), and this is very impressive for such a light and backpack portable cot. No doubt this will be more than enough for most people.

Regarding the dimensions, in view of its 75 x 27.5 inches (190.5 x 70 cm) bed size, I would describe this cot as very good. Note that there are no end bars, so the whole length is indeed a useful length.

Very good dimensions.

The width is typical, the side bars take a few centimeters of the length, but this is compensated with a pad if you use it.

The height is 7.8 inches (19.8 cm), so you can use this cot in any tent, regardless of how low it is. But, you still have quite some space and volume to store some gear underneath the cot. This is why I have included it in my list of very low camping cots.

Regarding the weight, with 4.4 lb (2 kg), this cot is indeed backpack portable, and I have added it to my list of best backpacking cots

You have already seen its packed size, and it is simply excellent, so you can carry it attached to the pack and also transport in every possible way, on a bicycle, motorbike, etc. The carry bag is with a strap so you can carry it attached to your shoulder as in the picture.

Backpack portable and exceptionally compact.
