Key features & benefits

  • Folding cot.
  • Easy to use.

What this is about

So here you have a very typical folding cot that folds roughly to half of its length for transportation. This makes it easy to unfold and to close but as you realize from the picture below when folded, it is quite large in two dimensions.

This is the cot folded for transportation.
This is the cot folded for transportation.

There is no assembly here, you open and close the cot in seconds. There are no latches or locks, so this is a very simple and easy-to-use construction.

As you realize from the pictures, it comes with integrated webbing straps for carrying it short distances. There is no carry bag here.

The cot is with U-shaped legs, so you have bars on the ground. The weight is distributed, so the cot will not sink in the ground no matter where you use it. This is a floor-friendly design and you can use it even in a floored family camping tent.

Materials & design

The frame is steel and this is reflected in its weight, more below. The bed deck is a 600D polyester, so this is quite typical for camping cots. 

I already mentioned the legs, so here to add that there is lots of space between them. The bed is 13 inches (33 cm) high and this means a lot of volume to store your gear. As you surely know, when you sleep on the ground you do not have such storage, this is one of the advantages of sleeping on the cot. 

Who is this cot for

Regarding the capacity, the cot is officially for users up to 300 lb (136 kg). This is quite typical and normally good enough for most potential users. But if you need more, please check my list of cots for heavy people.

Regarding the size, the bed measures 75 x 28.6 inches (191 x 73 cm). So the length is quite typical, and the width is very good. But as you see there is a frame around, and this takes a few centimeters.

So if you need a longer cot please check my list of extra long camping cots for tall people

Regarding the weight, it is substantial, the cot weighs 28 lb 9.6 oz (13 kg). You have already seen how the cot looks when folded for transportation. So this is an outdoor item for places with a car access.


  • Weight: 28 lb 9.6 oz (13 kg).
  • Capacity: 300 lb (136 kg).
  • Dimensions: 75 x 28.6 in (191 x 73 cm).
  • Height: 13 in (33 cm).
  • Frame: steel.
