Bass Pro Shops Big Outdoorsman Cot
Big Man's Cot
I bought this cot a year ago, been used heavily. This is one BIG Tough Cot, sleeps great. My only negative comments is its heavy. But heavily built also. It will be the last cot you will ever buy, its built stout!!

Best cot I have ever used.
It is extremely comfortable.
It is rated for 600 pounds and my brother and I put over 400 and it had no problem.

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.
