Bass Pro Shops Oversized Cot
Had this cot for two seasons now, on inspecting my gear for a planned hunt I found one of the four plastic end studs had been damaged. I called Bass Pro and they said there are no replacement parts available. Beware of the end parts as they are easily broken if set on the wrong end or in transport. While in our hunting camp I saw a cot with a competitors brand and their end studs are made of metal.. I like my cot but the cheap plastic they use and non-customer support makes me look elsewhere for my outdoor gear..

Best Night Sleep Camping
I just bought my oversized cot 2 weeks ago for my August deer hunt. I absolutely love the extra size and comfort you get out of this thing. I am only 5’09” and weigh 200 pounds, but I like to move around when I sleep. I spent 4 days sleeping in this on my trip and I slept better than any of my buddies. Two of them are going to go buy an over sized cot now.
This cot goes together in less than a minute and takes down is just as fast. I also looked at the regular sized cot, however for only $10.00 more you can’t beat this deal for all the extra space you get. In two weeks I will be leaving for my archery Elk Hunt and this cot is absolutely coming with me.
I could also see this as being a great cot for visiting guests if you don't have a spare bed.
Good luck and stay safe!

Better nights sleep
This past weekend was the first time I used my new cot. It sure beat the air mattress I was using, but of course the mattress was going flat half way through the night. The cot was easy to put together and was large enough for my 6'replacement 230 lb body to turn over while still having some items on the edge of the cot. I would recommend this cot.
The only reason I gave a four star was because I wish I would have purchased a sleep pad. The cot was firm and my 41 year old hips would have liked a little padding.

Nice Cot for the Value
This is my first cot purchase so I do not have anything to compare this to. Overall, this is a nice cot for the money in my opinion. The oversize is very nice and fits perfectly in my 10X10 tent.
After having slept on it, it is pretty comfortable with my sleeping pad. I am 5'11" 215 pounds and it supported me just fine and I had plenty of room.
My only complaint would be the plastic round end studs that the end bars lock into (As mentioned by TwoHawks). These studs are made of plastic. There is a lot of pressure on these round studs while the cot is set up and only time will tell if the plastic will hold up.
