What this is about

The Robens Outpost Low Cot is a collapsible outdoor bed. This means it has several separate parts and it needs a simple assembly. But this only implies putting side poles into their sleeves and then attaching the three sets of legs.

When it is time to go, and for storage at home, you get a carry bag included. It is shown in the picture below. Its dimensions are only 21.6 x 5.5 x 5.1 inches (55 x 14 x 13 cm), so you can transport it in every possible way.

One great detail that you have here are the four straps attached in the corners. They are there to keep a sleeping pad in place. When not in use, you can simply put them underneath the cot.

This is very useful for people who tend to turn a lot when sleeping. 


The fabric is moderately durable with its 420D polyester. The frame is an aluminum alloy 7075

The legs include plastic hub elements and wide feet, so this is a floor-friendly design. It is possible to use the cot even in a floored camping tent.

Note that there are three bars that connect the feet, and they are almost completely on the ground. So if you use it on a soft ground like a sand or a soft grass, the cot will not sink, those bars will prevent this.

Who is it for

Regarding the capacity, the cot is quite typical, it is officially for people of up to 264 lb (120 kg). So if this is not enough for you, check in my list of cots for heavy people.

Observe that the legs include those V-shaped support bars that add a lot to the cot’s longitudinal stability. The same design is available in several other cots here in the site. You can see it in the Niceway Ultralight Portable Camping Cot.

Regarding the dimensions, here too I would describe it as typical with its dimensions (L x W x H) 75.6 x 25.6 x 8.7 inches (192 x 65 x 22 cm). Note that there are no end bars here, so the length which you see is all a useful length.

Note also that the height is such that it can be used even in the lowest camping tents.

Regarding the weight, this cot is in the group of ultralight items of this type with its 5.22 lb (2.37 kg). But this is not something to carry on the trail of course.

Its packed size shown above is even more impressive, so it can be described as ultra-compact as well. 

Regarding the price, I think this is more than fair for such a product, and you have an incredibly respectable brand behind it.
