Very good lightweight cot for price
I bought this cot for horseback camping. I don't have a pack horse, so I need my camping gear to be as light and compact as possible, and this cot is 1/5 the price of the next lightest one. Would it be nice if this were shorter when its collapsed? Sure, but I can strap this with my tent behind my saddle, and it works. It seems to be well made, and my 225 lbs don't bottom out in it. Sleeping comfort is important to me, so I'll be using a lightweight sleeping pad with this (Exped SynMat Basic 7.5 lw fits perfectly, and adds 3" to the height- a good thing). The cot has a clever way of packing the legs so they become a carrying handle, which is an added bonus. The setup is quick and easy, especially with the included grip handle. Overall, I'm rating this cot as excellent for the needs I have.
