I had a previous version of this cot and had to have the center leg straightened and reinforced. I was worried about this one, but after putting it together, I doubt that will be a problem. This isn't just an oversize army cot! There are extra braces throughout making it very sturdy & stable. I had to use a bar to leverage the 2nd end bar into place on the old one. This one just slid right on. It does take a bit of time, but it is worth it for a bed that I'm not afraid to sleep in.
I do have a couple cons. First this thing is HEAVY! They should have put wheels on the bag. I had to "walk" the box in the house. Second, it is very long. I am a short handicapped woman (5'1") that needs a cot rated for bigger than the standard 225 lbs. When I laid down on it and stretched I couldn't reach from end to end. Curled up like I was sleeping, there is over 2 feet left at the end. I am taking this bad boy to a Boy Scout camp this weekend and I hope it will fit in the platform tent.
I plan to use a quilt for padding, like I did my last one. I'm also going to get a couple scouts to assemble it for me. I'm sure it will only take them 5-10 minutes. I recommend this to anyone that needs a bigger cot for whatever reason, but don't plan on carrying it far!

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.

I have been camping for years and this cot gave me the best sleep ever...It was so comfortable, it felt like I was home....I did purchase a thin foam padding, but otherwise...I highly recommend it to anyone

No, this cot is very heavy! While I have not actually weighed the thing, I have no doubt in my mind that it weighs close to 42 pounds. If they can't get the weight on the cot down, I would at least think that they could put a set of wheels on one end of the carrying bag so you can at least wheel it. It can get very heavy when carrying it long distances!
