What this Outwell Posadas XL Foldaway Bed is about
Here you have a folding construction, and this means all its elements are pre-attached to each other and there is no assembly. It comes ready to use and you unfold it or fold it literally in seconds.
There are 6 legs, and those at two ends fold together underneath the cot. After that you fold it in half. In the process, it collapses also width-wise, so it becomes an elongated tube like an umbrella.
When not in use and for transportation, you can keep it in its included carry bag shown below. It measures 41.7 x 6.3 x 5.9 inches (106 x 16 x 15 cm), so it is a bit long but it is very thin.
The construction is similar to its double-wide cousin the Outwell Posadas Foldaway Bed Double. So here too you have an integrated pillow shown in the picture, if you are a back sleeper this may be enough.
The frame is a powder coated steel and the feet are with plastic caps. But note that those caps are narrow. So if you use the cot in a floored family camping tent, it is best to add something for extra protection.
The fabric is a polyester. There is only one color available on the market. There are elastic bands in the corners, to secure a mattress in position.
Who is this Outwell Posadas Foldaway Bed XL for
Regarding the capacity, I would describe it as typical with its 265 lb (120 kg) official capacity. Not enough? If so, please check my list of cots for heavy people.
Regarding the dimensions, this is a long cot, and the width can be described as moderate. The bed measures 83.46 x 30.3 inches (212 x 77 cm). Note that there are no bars at the two ends, so all this length is a true useful length. This is why I have included it in my list of cots for tall users, and this also explains the letters XL in the name.
Note that you have 48 cm of clearance underneath the cot. This implies around 783 liters of volume to store your camping gear and to keep it out of the way.
Regarding the weight, this is not its best feature, it weighs 21.2 lb (9.6 kg). I have seen some sellers describing it as ‘lightweight’ and with a small packed size. But you have already seen its packed size, it is not bad, but you realize this is for places with a car access.
Regarding the price, I think it is fair for such a large cot. There are links below so you can compare several sellers.
- Weight: 21.2 lb (9.6 kg).
- Capacity: 265 lb (120 kg).
- Dimensions (L x W x H): 83.46 x 30.3 x 18.9 in (212 x 77 x 48 cm).
- Folded dimensions: 41.7 x 6.3 x 5.9 in (106 x 16 x 15 cm).
- Frame: steel.
