In this Winterial Oversize Outdoor Tent Cot review you can read about a very comfortable off-the-ground sleeping tool for one to two people. It is very suitable for campers, hunters, fishermen, for emergency situations, and for various other outdoor activities.
Winterial Oversize is easy to set up and you will see this in the video below. This tent cot comes with a frame which provides the main support for the tent and for the cot. It has 4 bar-legs so the construction is very stable. You attach the tent to the frame by velcro tabs. In addition, you have aluminum poles which support the tent dome.
Both the cot and the tent offer a really large space inside, see the numbers below. You have very useful gear lofts inside, one on each shorter side of the tent.
Doors and windows
There are 4 of them in total, one on each side. All of them can be used both as windows and as doors. All are equipped with mesh against mosquitoes. So clearly ventilation cannot be an issue inside of the tent.
It is included in the package of course, and it has vents on two sides. It is designed to form an awning in front of the tent. The poles supporting the awning are included in the package.
This is something particularly cool, you can see it in the picture below. So you can sit in the shade in front of your camping home, or keep it that way in case of rain to have more ventilation inside.
The procedure of setting up this tent cot is nicely shown in this video, so please have a look:

Comparison with other double models
See how Winterial compares with its closest competitors, the models from Kamp Rite:
|Bed size, inches (cm)
||Packed size inches (cm)
||Weight, lb (kg)
|Winterial Oversize||46 x 85 (117 x 216)||48.5 x 33.5 x 8 (123.2 x 85.1 x 20.3)||44 (20)|
|Kamp Rite Compact Double||55 x 85 (140 x 216)||45 x 12 x 12 (114.3 x 30.5 x 30.5)||42 (19.1)|
|Kamp Rite Double||53 x 84 (135 x 213)||56 x 34 x 8 (142 x 86 x 20)||51 (23.1)|
The true competitor is Kamp Rite Double because its construction is very similar to Winterial. So clearly Winterial offers less space.
Both KT Double and Winterial have vertical sidewalls. This gives a lot of extra volume inside, as compared to standard tents or to KR Compact model which is without this upper frame.
To conclude this Winterial Oversize Outdoor Tent Cot review, I believe it is obvious that this is a great tool. Like with every tent cot, you have a lot of comfort by sleeping off the ground, this reduces dampness and you do not lose warmth to the cold ground. Setting this tool up is far easier than any normal tent.
This is a very useful camping tool which offers a lot of space for one person and can also be used by two people. But this all comes at a price, so if this is an issue you might want to see some other models presented in the site. You have links given in the table above. Note also that standard quality ground tents are in fact very expensive. But with this tent cot you have a huge cot included in the price. If you need something smaller in the packed state, please check this Ozark Trail Two-Person cot-tent.
