For many people, a good night’s sleep is a very important part of a camping trip. Sleeping on the ground, even though you have already prepared a sleeping pad, is still sleeping on the ground. In this way, a camping cot is a great alternative option.
A camping cot can help you keep warm and comfortable in the outdoors. It’s popular for car camping. The innovative design of camping cot and the use of lightweight materials make it possible to bring a cot everywhere you want. In recent years, there are also collapsible cots that can be put in your backpack and are light enough for daylong hiking or backpacking.

If you’re looking for a camping cot to ensure a great night’s sleep, you must consider the following factors:
1. EASE OF SETUP
“Any piece of gear is useless if you can’t set it up.” Make sure that you can set it up by yourself.
Larger camping cot with plenty of space and padding are usually more comfortable. However, it’s also heavy for hiking or backpacking. If you want to go hiking or backpacking, go with a cot that is lightweight for transport. If you go car camping, give priority to comfort.
Even with a sleeping pad, the cold ground pulls heat away from your body all night. Sleeping on a cot, with means getting a few inches off the ground, can help keep you warmer. To make the cot softer and more comfortable, you can also pair your cot with an extra sleeping pad.
4. SLEEP SPACE
Before you pay for a sleeping cot, don’t forget to ensure that the cot is big enough for you. If you have more space in your trunk, a wider cot can give you a better using experience.
5. WEIGHT & PACKED SIZE
Most of the camping cots are designed for car camping, where packed size and weight are less of an issue. If you go hiking or backpacking, don’t forget to make sure that the weight and size of the cot can meet your needs. Cots designed for backpacking can weight only 2 pounds or less. This kind of cots can be stowed either in a backpack or strapped to the outside.
Durability varies widely with camping cots. Generally, the heavier a cot is, the tougher it is.
If you still don’t know which one to choose, consider one of the lightweight cots we profile above. They’re light enough for you to take into the backcountry, but still comfortable enough to sleep on if you occasionally go car camping.
