Kamp-Rite Double Tent Cot with Rain Fly
Fastest Tent ever!
I have owned this for just about a year now, I have used it and had time to seriously determine its features and quality. I used to setup a full size tent usually in the dark and hated doing it. I can set this up and be inside ready to relax in about 5 minutes, by myself even! I love my tent cot, I am 6'4" and 230 pounds and I could fit with my wife comfortably inside for a peaceful nights rest.

We use these tents in the barns when we go to cow shows and they work great in cold weather and warm weather. They are surprisingly roomy inside. I've carried them on planes and they are worth the $50.00 charge for oversize luggage. I do recommend a thicker foam pad in frigid weather. They stand up to hard use!

Great Find! Best Buy!
Looking for a product for camping that got me off the ground, and was easy to set up. Got the best of both worlds without sacrifice. Downside...center pole on cot limits inter-action with companion...which isn't a bad thing, each get a great comfortable nights sleep! Also takes a alot of space in your vehicle.
On the good side...comfortable, easy set up(complete camp set up including tent, tarp, and gear...ready for campfire in 30 mins. Camped on Thanksgiving weekend in some cold and rainy weather and stayed dry, warm and confident. Had a 1500 BTU Coleman heater under the tent and it kept me warm and dry all weekend.
Great product! Looking forward to winter camping.

I was very excited to get the double tent cot and was looking forward to using it. After using it a couple times I am sadly very disapointed.
My main 3 complaints:
It's very bulky. This wasn't necessarily a surprise - it is a double cot afterall. But, it does take a lot of space to haul. I could live with bulky were it not for the other two complaints.
It does not have good air circulation - especially with the rain fly on. You have to choose between air circulation and waterproofing - it gets very stuffy in there. The fly has a couple of window-type folds on either side, but it just isn't enough. There needs to be some space between the fly and the tent to let some air through (like a good tent), and there just isn't.
It's not comfotable - there are a couple of pressure points on either end - and they get worse if one person in the cot is heavier than the other. Strictly as a cot, it is the least comfortable cot I've slept on.
The only positive is that it is fairly easy to set up and take down.
It's a really cool idea and concept, but the end result just isn't as great as the idea and I found it to be a poorly ventilated tent with an uncomfortable cot. I regret the purchase.
