Worth Every Penny

I purchased this in Alaska for winter tent camping, Louisiana truck camping, sleeping under the stars, and other use. It is compact and light enough to be jumped inside a Paratrooper's combat equipment. I have used it on several occasions and it has no signs of wear. My only problem with it is that I didn't find and buy it years before.

Don’t go camping without it

We have had ours for almost 3 years and don’t know how we survived camping without them. Very comfortable and sturdy. Hard to put together initially but once we got the hang of it, we had no further problems. Does take a bit of strength and leverage. We are very active 70 year olds and these cots will hopefully extend our camping days for years to come in comfort.
