I sleep on this every night

We acquired the cox max from REI this spring along with the leg extension kit. It perfectly holds a 30" wide mega mat that makes is just like sleeping in a regular bed. Since it is portable it is better than a bed. We are using it while renovating our house. I don't think a better cot can be designed that this one. It is absolutely solid and superior to many other much heavier conventional cots. From a perspective of light weight and the ability to pack down small it is perfect for over landing and car camping, I have used many other cots but this is hands down the best of them.

Yes, that can possibly happen. If your tent is on hard ground and you toss and turn during the night, the resulting movement of the cot feet on the tent floor can cause damage. In this situation it is worth placing some extra padding between the cot and the tent floor.
