We put two of these side by side & blow up a double size air mattress to put it on top when boat camping at Lake Powell & cover with sheets. I try to pick the nights that the meteor showers will be in full swing & we sleep out under the beauty of long "burners" & falling stars. Some of my fondest memories. I love waking up & having had a great night's sleep & not needing to worry about the mice, tarantulas, scorpions or any critters getting in my bedding.
It took me about 5 minutes to figure out how to set it up, and then after that it was a super piece of cake. This is a very large roomy cot. I bought one just to see how nice it was, and it's one of the nicest sturdiest cot's I've seen. I'm going to buy another one for myself, this one was for my wife. We had a air mattress for camping before this and we just had too many problems with it.
I bought this cot two years ago for a three week outdoor festival on the east coast. I had plenty of room to roll and get comfy. The design is sturdy yet lite weight for its size. And the biggest benefit was that even in east coast summer humidity the material breathed and allowed moisture through. One complaint is the tabs where the cross bars slip on seemed as though they were fragile. Although it's been two years and no problems.
Backcounrty.com sent me a box that looked like it had been through a war zone. So I knew the cot was damaged before even opening it. There were several dings on the cot's metal structure. There was no paperwork and tape all over the box, so I know this package had been returned. I'm ultra-disappointed at backcountry.com. I waited a long time for its arrival and to get a second hand damaged cot is extremely disappointing.
On to the cot. My initial impression is that it's not well made. For the extra money you spend the value isn't worth it. I don't know I didn't get any paperwork with the cot so I cannot say too much. If I was doing it again, I would buy one of the regular cots. I doubt this cot's structural durability.
Altogether a real bummer. Backcountry.com is better than this.
