What this is about
Moosejaw has launched a long series of products with the word Comfster in the name. They also have a large family camping tent where you can use this cot.
This Moosejaw Comfster XXL Cot belongs to the group of military type cots. This implies that almost all the elements are pre-attached, only two separate end-bars should be added when you unfold the cot. The three elements are shown in the picture:
So the bed has a frame on all four sides. Note that in most cots of this type, adding the second bar requires a bit of force because of the tension in the bed fabric. However, this is not so here. You have a patented lever arm (shown in the picture), which makes adding the second end bar very easy and it locks it in place.
The cot needs a simple assembly, but this is easily done in seconds. Note that it comes with a strap, the picture below, which you can use to compress it when folded.
So when it is compressed, it easily fits into its included carry bag shown below.
You have a storage set on the side, see the picture. It includes large pouches to keep you gear and personal items off the ground and close at hand, plus a bottle holder.
The frame is a strong and sturdy steel construction, with 6 feet and support bars.
The bed is lightly padded, but for extra comfort you can add a pad. It is designed so that you can use their Moosejaw Ginormo 2.5″ XL Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad. They claim that the durable ripstop fabric is made 100% of recycled materials.
The feet are with plastic caps, a bit narrow, so be careful if you plan to use it in a floored family camping tent, to avoid damages.

Who is it for
Regarding the capacity, the cot is impressive, it is officially for users of up to 500 lb (227 kg). This is why I have added it to my list of cots for heavy people.
Regarding the dimensions, they are enormous. The bed is 85 inches (216 cm) long. The frame takes a few centimeters but this is still huge. So I have included it in my list of very long cots.
But see also its width, you have 38 inches (97 cm), so this is lots of space. This is why it is in my list of very wide cots.
The bed is quite high, and I think this should make it attractive for elderly users.
With such a height, it offers lots of space to store your gear when you are in a camping tent. You know well that when you sleep on the ground, such a space is lost, this is yet another advantage of sleeping on the cot.
Regarding the weight, this is not its best feature, with 36 lb (16.3 kg) it is quite heavy, bear this in mind and do not plan to carry it long distances from the car.
You have already seen its packed size, so note it is a bit long. But for a padded cot, the tube is not so bulky.
Regarding the price, I think this is more than fair for such a huge cot and all its features. Please check for updates in the links below.
- Weight: 36 lb (16.3 kg).
- Capacity: 500 lb (227 kg).
- Dimensions (L x W x H): 85 x 38 x 18 in (216 x 97 x 46 cm).
- Folded dimensions: 43.7 x 10.5 x 9.4 in (111 x 27 x 24 cm).
- Frame: steel.
