What this cot is about

The official name MOON LENCE Folding Camping Cot is a bit misleading in the sense that you have a collapsible cot and not a folding one. In other words, there is a simple assembly here and this makes it different from a folding cot.

So you have side bars and legs that must be put in place. You spread the fabric and then pass the side bars through the sleeves, and then start adding legs. This is all easily done and without extra tools, one person can do the job in under 10 minutes.

The good side of such a design is that the cot packs nicely in its carry bag, in the packed state it reduces to 16.5 x 7.8 x 6.5 inches (42 x 20 x 17 cm). So this is an incredibly small size for such a full-size cot.

The cot is quite high with its unique legs construction. Note also that the cross bars underneath the bed deck are well separated so there is no chance to touch them ever. You are safe from any pressure spots here. 

Materials

They use high quality and durable aircraft-grade 7075 aluminum alloy with zinc and with excellent mechanical properties. The legs lock in place easily and you have a locking mechanism shown in the picture.

The fabric is a ripstop 300D oxford with a PU double coating. This value sounds quite low for a cot but the weight capacity is excellent here. The fabric has a flex to it and it is not too stiff.

Using the cot in a tent

The legs are with plastic caps, and there are 8 of them in total. So the weight is distributed and the design is floor-friendly. If you use it in a floored tent, it is a good idea to add something underneath the feet if the ground is soft.

Also, if you plan to use it in a cold climate, you will have to add some insulation. But being so much above the cold ground, you always need far less insulation than when you sleep on the tent’s floor on a pad.


Who is it for

Regarding the weight, the cot could be described as very light with its 7 lb (3.18 kg) of weight. This is why I have included it in the category of backpack-portable cots. But this is not a backpacking and hiking cot as the manufacturer describes it. Those are much lighter and you can see them here.

The packed size is excellent so it is easy to attach it to the pack, and you can also transport it on a bicycle and in a kayak.

Regarding the capacity, the cot is impressive with its official 400 lb (181 kg) capacity. Who would say for such a light cot and with such a relatively thin fabric. So I have included it in my list of cots for heavy people,

Regarding the dimensions, the bed measures 74.8 x 27.6 inches (190 x 70 cm), so it is quite wide and reasonably long. Note that there are no end bars in this design, so the given length is the true useful length. But if you are a very tall person, check these cots for tall people.

Regarding the price, this is quite an affordable cot, a great price for the value.
