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.

Buy from Amazon.

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.

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)

*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.

Three different pads, Adventurer, Universal, and Outfitter.

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.

Buy from Amazon.


Conclusion

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.

Any question? No problem, there is a comment box below. Thank you for reading, and have a wonderful day.

  1. Hi Jovo, thank you for the post, this is the first time i’ve heard or seen of this tent. I navigated over from https://mountainsforeverybody.com as he mentioned this tent is special and such and eyeopener. Keep posting pls! I’ve bookedmarked to come back for more readings tonight :))

    1. Hi Michelle, so great to read your comment. Yes, this complete set is special, all in one. The cot alone is the most popular of all cots on the market, and as you see it serves as the platform for this amazing tent.

  2. How waterproof is this 3-piece ensemble? I understand that the tent itself is waterproof, but it seems that the cot and pad will be susceptible to becoming wet due to weather. Any suggestions or recommendations?

    1. Hi Cory, sorry for my slow reply, I have been in the Alps, here is one story from my trip, and have just returned.

      The system is designed to work together, the rain fly covers it all. The pad is in the tent with its waterproof floor so it is completely protected. Only legs of the cot can become wet, but this is not a problem. Even if the cot is completely wet, this is still not a problem, it serves as a platform only, and it does not keep the water on its surface in any case. Imagine that you use the tent on the ground (as it can be used), it offers a complete protection like any other tent.

  3. Hi Jovo,

    Thank you for this thorough review! I am actually planning a camping trip soon and had been considering buying a pop up camper. However seeing how the Teton tent, cot and pad setup works I may look into this further. I will have my wife and son with me, do they make these for multiple people or would the best bet be to buy multiple single tents?

    Thanks!

  4. Hi Jovo

    As I looked at the opening photo , I thought , ” oh yeah ! … , who’s gonna carry that on their back ! ” . However , as I kept reading , it gave me an excellent idea . To further explain , I own one of these cots ( not these models , but a similar one ) . It does not include a tent but I will place my bivy sac on it … thanks .

    You describe this sleeping system very well and the video provides very clear set-up instructions .

    Like you , I have spent many ” bag nights ” sleeping on the cold ground , snow and rocks included . This does not appeal to my old bones anymore !

    Your descriptions of this modern , car camping , sleeping system shows many options and weight categories .

    Sure beats a sleepless night in the car seat , over and under the steering wheel !

    It reminds me of my many nights sleeping on the snow !

    Sweet Dreams …

    Paul

    1. Thank you Paul, kind words from you. It appears you have experienced a lot sleeping outdoors. I agree with you about old bones, very similar at my side, so such a tool is indeed needed. Regarding the comment about carrying such tools, I wonder if you have noticed the other system described in the site, Thermarest tent cot, just 2.7 kilograms both tent and cot together. Quite extraordinary.
