If you want the ultimate camping experience, choosing a luxury camping cot could make all the difference. Cots provide an elevated sleeping surface free from rocks, bugs, pinecones and debris; and can keep you cool and dry during warm humid conditions. But not all cots are created equal: many features go into making each camp cot different that will impact its comfort as well as setup ease – to find your ideal one, consider these factors:
As your first consideration when searching for a luxury cot is size. Your new mattress should provide enough room for both you and your gear without making transport difficult; additionally, it should support your weight without deflating.
Next, examine the materials that make up your cot. Metal is typically the strongest option; aluminum or titanium may also be utilized; typically these cots feature anti-rust coating and strong hinges to withstand water, snow and dirt damage. You should also evaluate how easy it is to set up and break down. Ideally, models should be set up quickly with little effort required when packing for departure.
Consider whether or not you plan to use the cot for backpacking. If so, light cots made of lightweight materials like titanium or aluminum may be more appropriate – although more costly. However, lightweight camping gear will make an invaluable asset in backcountry adventures.
If you don’t want to invest too heavily in a cot, there are still options available that won’t break the bank. Coleman Airbed Cot is an excellent example.
