- Zippered pillow pocket.
- Side storage pouch.

What is in the name
The words One Step in the name are most likely related to the fact that this is a folding cot that needs no assembly. You open it or close it in seconds. If you look closely you will see a long handle on the side, this is added to pull the cut up and to fold it.
The top picture above shows the cot in its full size, but see below how it folds like an umbrella towards the center.
When you fold it, you can store it in its carry bag shown below. Its dimensions are 43 x 12 x 9 inches (109 x 30 x 23 cm). So it becomes a thin but elongated tube that will not take too much space in your car trunk. As you realize, it is equipped with a shoulder strap so you can carry it short distances.
The side view below shows that the cot comes with an integrated elevated headrest. If this elevation is not enough for you, check this Redcamp cot which is a reclining type.
Note that there is a zippered pouch in this headrest, shown below, so you can put inside some pieces of clothing or a pillow.
Yet another bonus here is a mesh pouch on the side, so you can keep small items off the ground and close at hand. The picture below gives a close view, observe that they have added those small flaps at places where the cot folds, so you do not touch cold metal at any spot. This is an attention to details which I appreciate here.
They do not provide information about the materials used. But the frame is clearly steel and the fabric appears to be polyester.
There are 6 legs and the feet are very wide, so this is a good design, they will not sink in the ground easily, and they are floor-friendly as well. Observe numerous X-shaped support bars for lateral stability.
Who is it for
Capacity-wise, the official capacity of this cot is 450 lb (204 kg). This qualifies it to be included in my list of cots for heavy people. It is not surprising when you see those six X-crossed structures in the frame.
Size-wise, the cot is equally impressive. The bed measures 80 x 32 inches (203 x 81 cm). So it is both long and wide.
Note that there are no bars in the head or feet area, so this is all true useful length. But if this is still not long enough, please check my list of best cots for tall people.
Weight-wise, the cot is quite heavy, so be ready for this. It weighs 22.5 lb (10.2 kg). In view of the previously shown packed size, this is clearly a cot for places with a car access.

One can buy mesh (or even bungee-strapped) office chairs with lumbar support, aka curved backs.
Why can’t we buy a cot with curved side rails? The human body is not made of straight lines. Putting a curve on aluminum rails is easy to do at the factory.
I would guess that curved side rails would double the comfort of a cot.
I am not sure what you are suggesting. It is easy to understand the logic of chairs with lumbar supports, but this cannot be applied to cots. People do not sleep on the cot in one position, and with such curved side rails this would be uncomfortable.
