Rated 5 out of 5 by swick Great Cot
I bought this cot for camping, but of course when it arrived I set it up in the spare room to try it out. I woke up next morning refreshed and without a trace of lower back pain (which is chronic with me). I was worried that the middle support would bother me, but this isn't the case at all. My job involves a lot of lifting, and if my back is cranky at bedtime I now sleep on this cot. It really does help me.
And now for camping! Last week I took a trip up to the White Mtns. Yes, the cot does take up more room in the car than an inflatable mattress, but what a difference it makes for sleeping. Instead of waking up every couple of hours trying to find a comfortable position, I slept right through the nights. Woke up refreshed and ready for the day's activities.
Long story short, this isn't a cot--it's a portable bed, and a comfortable one at that. If you're looking for a cot, please skip the canvas ones and spend the extra bucks for this one. You won't regret it. The one 'improvement' I would suggest is that the manufacturer install two plastic 'clips' to clamp the folded cot together instead of one. The one provided does the job, but if it breaks, could I find another?
Thanks Bean, for carrying this item. It's great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaryAnn50 These are really a great product
I bought 3 of these - at least 5 years ago. I live in a large country house and often have family visiting. These cots are comfortable and long lasting. Everyone who has used one (including me!) thinks they're great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by adore comfortable, easy to store, great for extra bed.
We found it very useful in our condo in Florida. Whenever we get visited by our grandchildren and relatives, we pulled out the folding cot and let them use it for extra bed. I have two of folding cot now and i believe i will have a great satisfaction in years to come for acquiring this items.

Just got this cot and slept on it for the first time. For a cot, it is very comfortable. I put an old comforter under the mattress, just to give it a little more cushioning, but I really did not need to.
Will bring this camping and to our kids' house so I can put this on the screened porch and enjoy the fresh air !

Recently bought the cot and so far have spent two nights on it, tent camping. Couldn't be more pleased. Nice height, stability, and very comfy. The "springs" are perfect. I am 5'4" and about 150 lbs, with two hip replacements. Nice width; felt generous, but not so wide as to be a problem in our two-person tent with another cot. No fuss set up. Construction seems strong. Covering and foam pad of excellent quality. No complaints. I appreciate the design, execution, and price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lisa58 Most comfortable cot
This cot is so comfortable you could sleep on it all the time. My family has two at my sister's camp and I bought one for home for guests. It is so comfortable I fell asleep on it while I was just resting. Folds up very compact can slip behind a door. Sturdy, easy to fold up. We have thrown away other cots because they are so uncomfortable, this is a keeper! Delivery was fast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Msomnia Nicer, thicker and wider than my other camp cot
This easy to use folding cot is not quite as comfortable as a standard twin bed, but it is close. No squeaks, and while more narrow than a twin, it is wider than the usual cot. I'm 54 years old, 154 lbs, and 5'4" and a fussy sleeper, and I was comfortable. Much preferable to a blow-up mattress on the floor. The fold out legs were secure and stable with glides that didn't scratch a hard wood floor. Great product. I would think even a school age child could carry it and set it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by charliechaps Firm narrow cot
I ordered this Swedish cot, made in Estonia to replace a raised airbed that I slept on for a year. I first looked at the new and improved version of this cot on LLBean.com with the wood slats but feared cracking, or the slats slipping out of their fittings like some the reviewers shared. When I saw that this model had serpentine springs connected to each other with metal clips I ordered this instead. So far I really like the firm feel of it. I'm 5'9", 160 lbs and the support I get is an improvement over my old raised airbed. It is narrow with a thin mattress so don't expect luxurious style sleep time - it is a cot. As a guest cot for non-obese people and kids it does the job and it works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RIDeb A great folding bed purchase
I just had a screened porch added to my house and wanted a comfortable folding bed so I could sleep out there on hot summer evenings. This has turned to be an excellent bed. It is super easy to set up (basically, just unfold it); the mattress is comfortable, the bed has good support for such a lightweight frame. After using it for two nights I decided to purchase another one to set up in a spare room for company. I did purchase an additional layer of cushioning for the mattress, but it wasn't necessary, just a whim because I wanted to be super cozy! I am very happy with this product; I do wish that LL Bean would offer sheets for this size bed; I am using twin sheets but the fitted sheet is too big. In conclusion, the size, ease, comfort, and price (plus LL Bean service) make this a top choice for a folding bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Professor39 To call this item a cot doesn't do it justice.
Comfortable, compact easy to store and bring out to my sun room when I want to nap. Well built.
Shipping was fast the whole process was very easy.
Other customer reviews were very helpful when making my choice
