What this is about
This brand has several cots on the market, and some of them are presented here in the site. So it should not be mixed with their REDCAMP Ultralight Backpacking Cot for Adults or REDCAMP Camping Cot for Adults.
As you realize, all of them have the phrase “for Adults” in the official name, but these are all very different constructions.
So the REDCAMP Folding Camping Cot for Adults presented here is a folding type. But this is one of those that fold like a book, and it remains relatively large in two dimensions, but it becomes very thin.
The picture below shows its dimensions when folded and ready for transportation.
Note that there is a padded section (the picture below) on the bar where you keep it by hand. It is also equipped with a strap that keeps the cot folded.
All what you see is one single piece, so the cot is very easy to use, there is no particular assembly. You simply unfold it as in the pictures below:
This is also a reclining cot, this holds both for the headrest and for the footrest. As shown in the picture below, you have four positions for the headrest and two positions for your feet.
Materials & other details
The frame is a steel alloy and the tubes are 25 mm ellipse profile, see the picture. So this makes the structure very strong.
But I am pleasantly surprised with the fabric denier value which is incredible 1680D, polyester oxford. I do not remember any other cot with such a number.
They sell several different options at the same place on Amazon, so I am not completely sure if the same denier value is in all of them. There seem to be a version with a light padding as well.
But from the pictures you realize also that the legs are floor-friendly, and you can use this cot even in a floored family camping tent. You also have a pillow included, it is shown in the picture below.
With such bars on the ground, it will never sink in the ground so you can use it practically everywhere. Note that there is a hanging pocket on the side to keep your small items at hand, it is visible below.
Who is it for
Regarding the capacity, this cot is officially for users of up to 330 lb (150 kg). This looks good enough for most of people, but if you still need more, please check in my list of cots for heavy people.
Regarding the dimensions, the numbers are given in the picture below, so you realize this is a very typical size.
Note that there is a frame around and this takes a few centimeters. So if you need more space, you can see some of cots for tall people.
But if you follow the link to Amazon below, you will see also that they have a few other different options regarding all three dimensions. Frankly speaking, they have made quite a mess.
The height is such that you have plenty of volume underneath the cot to store your camping gear and to keep it out of way. But as mentioned above, they have a higher cot as well.
Regarding the weight, the cot is a bit on the heavy side, but this is not a big issue really, it is designed to be used as a car camping cot. Those reclining features add extra weight.
You have already seen its packed so you know that it needs some space, but it is thin, only 18 cm, so it fits into narrow spaces.
Regarding the price, there are less expensive cots on the market, but this is still a reasonable price for such a product.
- Weight: 12.5 lb (5.7 kg).
- Capacity: 330 lb (150 kg).
- Dimensions (L x W x H): 75 x 25.5 x 11.5 in (191 x 65 x 29 cm).
- Folded dimensions: 29 x 27.5 x 7 in (74 x 70 x 18 cm).
