Rated 5 out of 5 Easy & comfortable, is true !
Bought this cot,zipper fleece bag, & camp pillow for my son who is a NYC Police Officer, and gets stuck at work many nights with no place to rest at his base. His report back to me was "very comfortable,nice & wide & easy to set up, it's great". All the other guys are jealous of his bed away from home !

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hickster Easy Cot
The cot is reasonably easy to erect, although it goes much better with 2 people. It has none of the difficult to perform stretching at the ends, as in traditional "army" style cots. These provide good comfort for me at 180 lbs, and are wider than traditional cots by a very important 6 inches.. Be aware that the cot is a lot heavier than it looks in the online catalog -be sure to check the weight if it's given in the specifications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by adklover58 LOVE IT!
I love this cot! Incredibly easy to put up and take down. I live in an old house so storage is a problem. This cot folds down into a bag a bit larger than a folding chair. It is comfortable and appears very durable.
When I opened it at camp (two miles from the main road) I did notice a pencil eraser size hole in the canvas. Although it didn't affect my camping, I was concerned about it getting larger. I took it to the nearest retail store and in true L.L. Bean fashion, it was accepted with a smile and no questions asked. Four days later I received a brand new cot.
Besides camping I look forward to using it as an extra 'fun' bed for my granddaughter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WeekendExplorer Very Easy to Use
Love these cots. Mine arrived an hour before leaving for a camping trip. We did not test them out or set them up.
When we arrived at our camp site, my 10 year old son decided to set up the cots by himself without instructions. He said it was really easy. You just unfold it and stretch it out.
Folding them up is a bit trickier, because you have to fold it up in multiple directions simultaneously and make sure the center supports are in between the outer supports. Once it is folded, it easily slides back into the provided bag for storage.
I continued to use my cot once I got home to sleep on while I remodeled the bedroom. It was just as comfortable as my bed.

The Easy Cot was easy to set up and take down. Carry bag makes for easy transport. The cot is sturdy, yet comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewEnglandPreppy Great for sleepovers and car camping
We love the cot. We have two, and we would strongly recommend them. We use them both for car camping and for when my son has sleepovers. For car camping, we fit two of these into a rectangular 8-person tent with space on the floor between for 2 more adults or 3 kids. All our gear gets stowed under the cots and out of the way. The cots are much more comfortable than inflatable beds, and we have comfortably slept on them for 4 nights in a row. We do not use sleeping mats with them while camping, although you could if it were especially cold. They have plastic feet that have not gouged through our tent floor even though we've used them in the tent for several years. Our tent does have a heavy-duty floor though. They are very stable when open, and they store neatly into a bag with shoulder carry strap when not in use.We also use them whenever my son has friends sleep over, and they work great for that...again, much more comfortable than inflatables. Future improvements that would be nice would be a hanging pocket from one side for a flashlight or phone and a slightly longer strap on the carrying bag so one could hang the bag from the opened cot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CTMomofthree Awesome!!!!
I ordered two of these for my husband and I and they are awesome! The size is great and they are super-comfy. I can't wait to take them camping when the weather gets nicer. You will not be disappointed.

I bought this cot last year for camping and to sleep on when I lose my bed for overnight guests. The cot has been perfect and I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a cot!!
