Teton Sports Outfitter XXL Quick tent and cot is a 3-in-1 system for outdoor sleeping. They are sold separately, but they can be used together as a tent cot.
What is this all about
As you realize from the title, you have a great tent with its own rather unique Quick-setup system, and you also have a cot from the same brand. You do not have to order them both, and you do not have to use them together. But they do fit together very nicely, and this is what makes it a true 3-in-1 system.
If used together as a tent cot, this is a very comfortable camping tool, but this is not something to carry around. The combined weight of both is around 14 kg. So this is a tool for places with a car access. As the picture above suggests, if offers an off-the-ground sleeping which can be comfortable even in very harsh situations.
You will see below that the system may also include pads of various thicknesses and sizes, from the same brand. So this is very useful, you can have all elements you need from the same brand, and they all fit nicely together.
In the moment of writing this text, the price for both the tent and the cot is around $180. This looks like a really reasonable price for what you get here, but you will be able to compare this with some other models given below.
So now I present the elements of this system, one after another.
The Outfitter XXL Quick cot tent
This tent fits nicely on XXL cots, you will be able to see this in the video below. What you have here is an extremely easy pop-up setup and two-finger take-down.
The tent comes with 6 attachment points to lock it to various types of oversized cots. The bottom is durable and water-resistant, it can be used on a cot or on the ground.
It is equipped with a large U-shaped fold-away zippered door. The tent fabric is mesh and taffeta combination for an optimal ventilation. In combination with the included rain fly, this tool performs great in any weather conditions. All seams are taped.
The tent comes with rain fly, stakes and guy lines.
Regarding waterproofing, all TETON Sports tents in general are with 2000 mm as the lowest waterproofing standard.
The tent has received a great rating by Amazon customers, as you can see from the image.

Comparison with standard one-person tents
With its 1.95 kilograms, Teton Sports Outfitter is not so bad when compared with some very good and popular 1-person tents. I would point out the following two for comparison:
But see the price here, those tents are indeed far more expensive.
TETON Sports Outfitter XXL Camp Cot
This cot is a camping tool, not something to carry around. You have an almost 12 kg steel and aluminum frame which offers a lot of space, as you will realize from the comparison table below.
The tool is durable and strong, in this video you can see the cot keeping 7 people. The setup is quick and easy.
This is an outdoor tool but it is very comfortable and it can be used as a guest bed at home, in combination with the Outfitter XXL Camp Pad (see below).
The cot is compatible with Outfitter XXL camp pad, Outfitter XXL Quck tent, gun sleeve, and TETON Sports Cot Organizer. Note that it is the perfect size to be used as a cot-tent combination with the Kodiak Canwas Swag 1 person tent.
The cot has received a huge number of reviews on Amazon, with an exceptionally great average rate 4.5/5, based on more than 900 reviews.

Comparison with other brands
In this site you will find all tent cots presently available on Amazon. So it may be useful to compare the tent + cot combination presented above, with some other models which are normally sold as a tent cots. So please have a look in this table:
|Bed size, inches (cm)
||Tent height, inches (cm)||Packed size inches (cm)
||Weight, lb (kg)
|Teton Sports Outfitter||40 x 85 (102 x 216)||39 (99)
||Separate parts, see above.||30.3 (13.8)|
|Therma Rest*||26 x 77 (66 x 196)||55.12 (140)
||Separate parts, follow the link.||5 lb 14 oz (2.66)|
|KR Compact XL||33 x 84 (84 x 213)||40 (102)
|42 x 9 x 8 (107 x 23 x 20)||28 (12.7)|
|KR Compact Collapsible||29 x 79 (74 x 201)||39 (99)
||43 x 10 x 9 (109 x 25 x 23)||25 (11.3)|
*This is for L model; KR = Kamp Rite.
Note that all models given in the table belong to the class of collapsible tent cots. All 4 models are also with 3-in-1 feature. The Thermarest model is exceptional: it is completely portable in a backpack.
It is clear that Teton Sports Outfitter XXL Quick tent cot system offers far more space than any other of the models given in the table.
Regarding the price, Teton’s combined tent + cot is less expensive than the Thermarest model, but more expensive that the other two models from Kamp Rite. Please follow the links in the table to compare the prices.
Teton Sports Outfitter XXL Camp Pad
This is an extra item which you might want to consider because it fits perfectly with the tent cot tool presented above.
This pad series includes three different sizes, see the picture below. The pad compresses nicely for storage and transport, as you can see in the picture above. You have between 2 and 2.5 inches of foam, quite enough in view of the fact that this is used on the cot, separated from the cold ground.
The pad includes a built-in zip pocket for valuables, flashlight, keys, and any other small items you may need while you are in bed.
It is needless to say that these pads are great matching for TETON Sports cots, but they fit also any cots with bars. These pads can also be used as ground pads with the tent alone, but they are heavy and those are camping tools.
The pad has received a very high rating by Amazon customers, 4.4/5 based on more than 350 reviews so far.
All nice features of the pad you can see in this video, please have a look:
Pad specifications: Outfitter XXL model
- Weight: 9 lb (4.8 kg).
- Size: 82 x 38 x 2.5 in (208 x 97 x 6.3 cm).
- Rolled size: 38.5 x 13 x 14 in (97.8 x 33 x 36 cm).
- Foam: 2.5 in (6.3 cm) thick open-cell.
- Shell: 300 D brushed canvas.
- Color: brown.
- Limited lifetime warranty.
To conclude this text about Teton Sports Outfitter XXL Quick tent, cot, and pad, as you realize this is a nice set of three great products. They are all sold separately, but they are designed to be used together as well, as an exceptionally functional and comfortable outdoor tool. The 3-in-1 feature which you have here is particularly attractive for hikers and mountaineers.
With the weight of 1.95 kg, the tent is definitely not a lightweight tool. So this is not something to be your first choice as a tent for extended backpacking tours. But for shorter overnight and weekend hiking and climbing tours it is definitely worth bearing in mind. Such an easy and quick setup you will not find with any hiking solo tent.
The cot and the pad can also be used as an extra bed in emergency situations, at home or anywhere really. As already mentioned above, the same cot can be used with the Kodiak Canvas bivy tent.
So, I hope this was a useful text for you. If so, perhaps it may be of use for others as well, so please share it. If you need a smaller cot from the same brand, please check their Somnia Cot.
