This comfy cot keeps us off the rough ground, and its unique lever system makes tensioning the sleeping surface quick and easy, so it's not sagging halfway through the night. And since it's so lightweight, compact, and easy to set up, we can bust it out any time we just want to read in the park or sunning on the sand.

I took this to a disaster relief base camp... I was inside a building on a tile floor and not outside or on dirt... It was "easy" to set up but I did practice before I needed to use it for real... Intellectually, it is easy... Somebody posted a video: watch it... In reality I have pole that is dodgy and takes an inordinate amount of effort to engage and retract... It felt like I would break it... it didn't... I will probably buy back up poles...
Update on this cot... It's been just over a year of use... I would say I used it about 30 times in the last year... This includes having my kids use it for sleep overs... I've used it several times in below freezing temps... No issues... I would say if you take care not to abuse this, it will do as intended...
This cot was purchased because it fit the dimensions of my 4 person tent (3 person wither gear) and for my wife to use on an upcoming camp out... She likes some comfort and this cot is a way to get her to come out on trips with me and the kids... I used a lightly inflated Klymit air mattress on top of the cot when she used it... She was much much more comfortable than laying on the ground and slept well... Since then, I have used it on multiple car camping trips, backyard camp outs, and kid sleepovers... I've slept on the ground with everything from a foam pad to a 2...5 inch Neo Air when camping, so I know a bit about (dis)comfort when sleeping outside... This cot is really a nice comfort item... As before, I still put some kind of pad on top when I use it... It is really strong and supportive... I have had myself and my two kids on it, over 300 lbs, and no issues... I am careful to not put a lot of weight directly over any one leg... Rolling/getting on and off the cot has never been an issue... It feels very stable...
My last trip out was a weekend ago in temperatures down to 27 degrees... I used my Neo Air on top of the cot at those temps... Again, I was comfortable and the cot didn't care about the cold at all...
I am 6 feet long, 195 lbs and I can fit just fine... My head doesn't feel like it hangs over or slopes down...I am a little cautious with the cot feet... I have had no issues with them, but I feel if something is to fail, it will be the feet... The poles are beefy aluminum, not like a tent pole... My tent floor has had no issues with the feet... I put the cot down directly on the tent floor and have had no trouble... I wouldn't use this backpacking, but it's been coming with on all my car camping trips...
I just used this on a motorcycle camping trip... This cot with a sleeping pad was great... Slept well and the pad did not move since I was using the strap that was designed into the cot... Easy to assemble and disassemble... I would recommend that you set the cot up once before you take a trip... Also make sure that it will fit in your tent... I used it in a one man tent and it was a little tight... This cot is super compact and is great for motorcycle camping...
I have not yet slept on this cot, but I did completely set it up and laid on it... Set up was extremely easy once I found some how to videos on You Tube... The instructions that came with the cot were not too useful... Some reviewers have commented how hard it is to set this up and that is because they are not doing it right... I highly recommend watching an online video... The quality of the materials and construction of this cot seem to be very high... It was very comfortable in the short time I laid on it in my living room... I look forward to testing it on my next wildfire...
Was reluctant to spend the money for a camping cot... Been sleeping on an compact air mattress during my weeklong bicycle ride across Iowa... (RAGBRAI) However, did purchase this item... Ended up being the most comfortable sleeping item ever... Set up and break down was faster and easier then the air mattress once I got the knack... Watch a u tube video... Did that 3 times and figured it out... Will be using it 7 nights a year so it should last...
