Key features & benefits

  • Reasonable price.
  • Great size.
  • Bonus organizer.


What kind cot is this

The Tough Outdoors Camp Cot XL is what its name says, a really large cot built in the military style. So you have the usual X-shaped steel legs and the aluminum frame on all sides.

The cot is collapsible and it needs assembly. But for such a type the assembly only implies unfolding the cot and then adding the two end bars. The setup procedure is summarized in these pictures:

Who is it for

Sizewise, this is a cot for very tall people. You have a large bed deck here with the size 83 x 32 inches (211 x 81 cm). Though bear in mind that the end bars take a few centimeters from the true useful length.

The capacity is also impressive, so this cot can easily accommodate people of up to 310 pounds (141 kg).

The cot is on the heavier side, 18 pounds (8.16 kg), so you will not carry it around; this is a tool for places with a car access. At home, this is a great spare bed for sudden guests. Regardless how you use it, you will keep it clean from dust in its great carry/storage bag.

Using it in a tent

Such a big and tall cot will not fit in any small tent. So the smallest tents where you could use it are 2-person tents used solo. A good option would be this Kelty Gunnison 2 tent with footprint. It will fit nicely in any larger tent, in particular, those with steep and tall walls like this Browning Camping Glacier 4 tent, or in cabin tents in general.

There are 6 legs and the feet are protected with plastic caps. This will work well if the ground is not soft, otherwise add some extra protection for the tent floor.

Using a pad

In a warmer environment, you do not need a pad except for more comfort. But in a cooler environment please consider some of these sleeping pads, all are suitable for car camping.

For sleeping bags please check here, many of them are reviewed in detail.

Final thoughts

The best feature of this Tough Outdoors Camp Cot XL is its size. It is suitable for very tall people so if you are one of them, this is the cot to consider.  The cot comes with a bonus organizer and the price is more than fair.

But there are even bigger cots on the market so check this list if you are in search of such an item. In particular, see this Texsport Black Bear cot which is bigger.

Take a closer look.
