Bass Pro Shops Big Outdoorsman Cot
I am 6'4", 300lbs and have broken my share of lesser cots. This cot is massive, sturdy and comfy. I bought it before deer season and have spent 16 nights on it to date...I slept great, it was quiet and I did not even need a pad, it works great as is. My dad came out for a night and I let him use it...that was a mistake, now I have to fight him for it. I may have to buy another one. One warning, it is HUGE make sure the measurements will fit in your tent, it fits great in my family tent but a smaller tent may have clearance issues.

Best cot ever
I recently purchased the Big Outdoorsman Cot and I couldn't be more pleased. I have been in the military for 37 years now and slept on a lot of different cots/surfaces. This is by far the best cot I have ever slept on. I am 6'4" and 230 pounds and almost all cots and sleeping systems are too short or lack stability. The Outdoorsman Cot was very easy to set up and is exceptional in size. As I have gotten older I have found that trying to stand up from a low cot to be a pain in the back, literally. Recent spinal surgery for pain and this cot are going to make my hunting season much more satisfying. A good buy at twice the price.

First I would like to say that my purchase and great review of the product would not have occurred without the other reviewers and me using those reviews when utilizing the cot. I bought this cot for my 2012 hunting trip. Before I took it with me I assembled the cot in my house. This was a snap. I bought a cheap rubber mallet to keep in the bag with the cot and it rally came in handy. I used it to secure the braces very easily and I used the handle as a pry bar to get the last cross bracket into place since it is under pressure. I am 6 ft. tall and weigh about 360 lbs. I slept great on this cot. I turned and rolled in it and it never made any noise or gave anything but a good solid bed. You have got to remember this is a bed NOT A COUCH. You can not sit on the edge of the 1 inch bar when you are a big guy and expect it to hold. This is for sleeping not sitting on. After my hunting trip I'm still impressed. I put it together and broke it back down easily by myself. I slept on it for about 7 nights so far. It's a little heavy to carry in the bag but hey to be sturdy you got to give something right.

I was very pleased with this cot. I got it just in time to use it at deer camp and it worked out perfectly. I am about 6'3" and 300# and it is rock solid. I didn't use any sleeping pad just my sleeping bag and it was very comfortable, didn't sag at all. I read reviews that it was difficult to set up initially, I did not experience those issues. It went together in about a half hour. Can't wait to use it again next year.
