What this is about
This cot is under the name used in the title available on Amazon, and at the manufacturer’s site it is under the name Cedar Deluxe Folding Cot. The word ‘folding’ is not completely accurate description of this cot because this is a very typical military-style cot and this means it needs a simple assembly and it is collapsible.
So the frame and the bed fabric are pre-attached to each other and you simply unfold them and put the cot on its 6 legs. But there are a head bar and a foot bar that must be added after that, see the picture below. This creates a full frame. Adding those two bars is easy, you simply pass them one by one through their sleeves and then lock them in place and attach them to the side bars, see the picture below.
A storage set shown above is on the side with two small pouches to keep small items at hand and off the ground. The picture below shows how the legs and the frame look.
The cot comes with a carry bag built in the same camo style and with shoulder straps:
When you fold the cot, there are straps (the picture below) to keep it folded, and then you can easier store it in the zippered bag.
You have seen already how the legs look, so this is mostly aluminum and a bit of steel for reinforcement. The feet are with plastic caps, they are narrow and you would not want to use the cot in a floored tent without some extra protection.
The fabric is obviously polyester, but they do not provide any information about it. As you realize from the pictures this is a camo design.
Who is it for
Size-wise, this cot is quite typical with its bed that measures 74.4 x 25.6 inches (189 x 65 cm). Note that there are bars on all four sides and they take a few centimeters. So this is definitely not for tall users, if you are one of them it is better to check my list of extra-long camping cots.
The same holds for its width that is modest and in reality you have a few centimeters less because of its bars. If you need more space please check my list of extra-wide camping cots.
The height is OK, you have 16.1 inches (41 cm) and this is lots of volume to store your gear.
Capacity-wise, they describe it as a heavy-duty cot and indeed it looks solid and craftsmanship is at a high level. But the official weight capacity is quite typical 300 lb (136 kg).
Note that there is yet another cot from this brand here in the site, the Timber Ridge Deluxe XL Camp Cot With Carry Bag, its capacity is officially the same but the legs are angled and with support bars. But if you need a cot for a very heavy user, check this list.
Weight-wise, the cot is a bit heavy with its 16 lb (7.2 kg), and it is also a bit long when packed, the dimensions are 37.8 x 7.9 x 5.5 inches (96 x 20 x 14 cm). So this is a car camping cot and you would not want to carry it long distances.
Regarding the price, it may look a bit steep but this is a quality cot from a reliable brand and it is worth the investment.
