This Outsunny Compact Collapsible Portable Camping Cot Bed Set is a versatile folding and compact outdoor sleeping system for two people with many elements.
Key features & benefits
- 9 Elements in the package.
- Very versatile set.
- Incredibly thick double-wide sleeping pad.
- Carry bag included.
- Very affordable.
What this is about
The picture above shows that you have a complete outdoor sleeping set, but see what exactly this includes:
- A double-wide camping cot.
- An inflatable double-wide sleeping pad.
- 2 Pillows.
- 2 Pillowcases.
- A foot pump.
- A textile cover.
- A sleeping bag.
- A carrying bag.
All these elements are shown in the picture:
So the double-wide cot shown on the right is a folding type, so there is no assembly. It folds and unfolds easily without any tool. The sleeping pad and all other elements fold and store into the carry bag shown below that measures around 44 x 12.2 x 10.2 inches (112 x 31 x 26 cm).
The sleeping bag is a rectangular type without a hood, and with a zipper all the way on its two sides. So you can use it as a single sleeping bag, its dimensions are 77.5 x 28.25 inches (197 x 72 cm).
But you can open it fully and use as a blanket for two people as shown in the picture below. Its width is roughly 60 inches (152 cm).
The sleeping pad is double-wide and incredibly thick. You will hardly find a thicker camping sleeping pad. Its thickness is 7.75 inches (20 cm). So this is good for any type of sleeper and it is wide enough for two people. Because of this, I have included it in my list of best camping cots with air mattress.
The unfolded elements in the package are shown here separately:
The cot is made of powder-coated steel and the bed deck is a durable PVC coated Oxford fabric. The sleeping bag shell is a 190T polyester fabric for easy cleaning and durability. They do not provide any info about its fill, but this is clearly some synthetic material.
Who is this Outsunny Compact Collapsible Portable Camping Cot Bed Set for
Regarding the dimensions, you have them all shown in the picture below. So the bed is wide enough for two people and its length is typical. Note however that there are no end bars here, so the indicated length is its truly useful length.
The cot is built for two users, so there is a bar in the middle. This means that you can’t sleep in the middle if you use it as a solo bed. But this is so with practically every double-wide cot that you can find on the market.
Yet another detail worth mentioning is that the cot is unusually high. You have 25.25 inches (64 cm) from the ground. When you add such a thick mattress, you realize that this is among the highest camping beds that you can find on the market. So this is higher than the Coleman Queen Size Cot that is also with an inflatable thick sleeping pad.
This height is good at least for two reasons:
- Elderly users can easily get in and out of the bed.
- You can store lots of stuff under the bed. Such space is normally wasted when you sleep on the ground.
Regarding the capacity, it is not so impressive. The cot is officially for up to 352 lb (160 kg) of weight. So this is far less than what you have in the mentioned Coleman’s cot.
Regarding the weight, this is a heavy set that weighs 44 lb (20 kg). But this is expected, you have a double bed for two people with all the other elements.
The packed size mentioned above is such that you need a car for transportation.
Regarding the price, this is a true bargain when you see how many elements you have here.
Using this system in a tent
This is a large cot and it will not fit in any 2-person tent. So you will have to go for something bigger. Most of the 3-person tents will be fine. It is best to use it in a cabin-style tent with steep walls and with a high ceiling.
Note that you can use the set as it is, but you can also use it as it suits you, with all its elements separately.
There are 9 feet in total, so the weight is distributed. But the feet are narrow and do not think of using it as it is in a floored tent. You have to put something underneath the feet to protect the floor.
- Weight: 44 lb (20 kg).
- Capacity: 352 lb (160 kg).
- Bed size: 75.5 x 54 in (192 x 137 cm).
- Bed height: 25.25 in (64 cm).
- Sleeping pad size: 74.75 x 54 in (190 x 137 cm).
- Pad thickness: 7.75 in (20 cm).
- Cot folded size: 43.25 x 8.75 x 4.25 in (110 x 22 x 11 cm).
- Packed size: 44 x 12.2 x 10.2 in (112 x 31 x 26 cm).
Rating, pros & cons
With so many elements in the package, this is not an ordinary cot, so it is a bit tricky to rate it properly by using my usual criteria. In any case, see how I rate this system:

User Review( votes)
In summary, this Outsunny Compact Collapsible Portable Camping Cot Bed Set is what its name says, an outdoor off-ground sleeping system that you can use in most conditions in a 3-season use. The incredibly thick mattress is not insulated. But you have air inside that gives some insulation, you can expect the effective R-value around 0.8 or so. You are far above the ground so you do not need insulation in any case.
This is a very affordable and versatile system. I have included it in my list of best double cots for camping.
