Rated 5 out of 5 by NovaScotiaLLBeanFan Most comfortable Cot, easy set up, compact
My husband has camped for years and is very outdoorsy. He would never use a cot until he tried this one I purchased for myself.
Well, he said it was the most comfortable cot he'd ever lain on. I agree.
There is no metal digging into you, you almost feel like you're suspended. No pressure points, and it's substantial with no sagging.
I was pleasantly surprised that it exceeded my expectations even after reading the reviews.
I purchased the camp futon to go along with this in the large size as I wanted it to feel as much like a bed as possible. Well, I can't imagine being more comfortable camping.
This easily could be used for guests with the camp futon. My husband says it is great by itself, but I like both for the added cushiness.
Really pleased. It folds up compactly and easily, and super easy to just unfold and set up in under a minute.
Another great product from LL Bean. These reviews were bang on and really helpful.

I'm very satisfied with this purchase and would recommend this cot compared to others I looked at, at a variety of stores/online. It is very easy to set up. I was a little confused by the legs, if they needed to lock in place. I did call the customer service line to ask about this. Customer service was very helpful and advised the legs do not lock in place. The legs lock when you lay down on the cot. I have not had any problems with it. I did purchase the cot as a temporary bed with my inflatable mattress on top. Works perfect! It will be nice for guests at some point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by papoose Best Mobile Bed Ever!!
This may be a "camp" cot, but we now have three of them. They are the best thing to throw into any car along with a sleeping bag and you have an automatic guest bed for any place you go. Don't like to sleep in a bag? Use it as a mattress and buy a simple twin sheet set that comes in it's own bag. In two minutes you have a very comfortable bed. It takes two seconds to put together, comes with a carry case, and is built with quality you'd expect from LLBean. Folds easily for storage. Excellent price too! Well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Qualitypurchase4all Easy peasy
The name says it all. Easy Cot. This is no lie. You simply take the cot out of the carry case. Place it on it's side, bring out the folded legs place upright then pull the legs out slightly toward the ends of the cot and voila!! It is so easy someone this arthritis could do it without any problem, or even a seven year old child could do it once it is out of the carry case. It is also as easy to close and place back in the carry case. Turn it on it's side bring the folding legs toward the center slide the carry case over and you are done. It is also very sturdy to sleep on and makes no noise when you turn while sleeping. I put the LL bean camp futon (Large size) on top with an egg crate mattress and it was very comfortable and warm to sleep on. My back felt better after sleeping on this than my own bed. I plan on using it for guests when they stay over.

The cot was easy to set up and not uncomfortable. I've had this a week and one of the corners ripped when I was closing the cot up to put it away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DEcamper Easy Cot Review
We originally purchased one of these last winter; we're so pleased with it, we purchased another. We've tried other cots in the past but none is as sturdy and comfortable as the Easy Cot. It's effortless to put up and put away. All in all, the price is fair.

Camped with this twice and am very satisfied. A little on the heavy side but well made and sturdy product. Quick and easy to set up and take down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by livingwithgratitude Almost 5 stars
The cot arrived quickly. It is as easy to set up as they say. It is as easy to fold up as they say.
It is a cot, so there is a certain amount of sagging that occurs, but being new, not unreasonable. It is a cot, so there is a lack of cushioning for comfort, but not unreasonable. If you keep in mind that this is not your bed, I think you will be pleased with this product, it is after all, a cot.
Of course you can put a self inflating camp mat, or foam camp mat on it to add some additional comfort.
Now I can't speak to it's ability to last, we just got it.
The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I'm tight with doling out praise, and there is one idiosyncrasy, you have to be sure you have the legs pulled fully apart and stabilized, somewhat of a challenge on a tent floor in the grass. But you don't want it to fold up when you get on.
I plan on buying a second. That's it. Good cot. Maybe great, as cot's go.

Rated 4 out of 5 Saved our camping trip
My wife and I went tent camping up in Maine with our son. Not sure if it is our age (43) or that we picked a particularly hard patch of ground but sleeping was horrible the first night. On the second day we headed over to Freeport to check out the Flagship store and saw this cot. Price was good at $79 and we decided to give it a try.
My wife slept on it that night and loved it. I got it the next night and was equally impressed. It is very comfortable but a bit heavy. It fold up similar in size to a large folding chair and it comes with its own stuff sack.
Materials seems to be very well made and it folds up easily. Would have given 5 stars if it was a bit lighter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1CampingGrandma GREAT COT!
I absolutely love this cot! Wound up purchasing a second one because it is sturdy and comfortable. My grandkids just left after having spent two weeks sleeping on these cots! Easy to set up, easy to take down. Fits nicely in the handy travel bag! I would DEFINITELY recommend the Easy Cot!
