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.

big Man Cot
This cot sits up high. I am 6'1" 330lbs.Sitting on the fabric part I sink down and my feet do not touch the ground. I have used it once camping 3 days. I had to have a chair in the tent to sit on to get dressed. When you sit on the edge the side bar cuts into your legs. It sleeps well but I have mobility issues and found it a little difficult getting in and out of the cot. It did sleep well once in it. It is extremely heavy but then so am I.

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.
