Best piece of gear for wherever you may find yourself!
I have owned one of these tent cot's for many years now.
We arrive at the location, be it day or night and within minutes I am set up and ready
whilst my friends are still trying to locate their pegs!
Lightweight, super strong (I'm 110kg) and comfy.
Survived in all sorts of weather. Was in remote Mid-West of WA when we had 3 days of savage thunderstorms/rain.
No issues at all.
One of the benefits of these Tent Cots are that you can relocate it with ease.
Don't like the view, your buddy snores too much or those drop bears are giving you grief…
Just pick it up and move.
Plenty of room inside to sit up and put your clothes on, hook up a LED light inside and handy overhead pocket to place all your gear in for easy reach.
It's off the ground so the snakes just slide by to your mates swag next door!
On those balmy nights, roll up the side flaps to get the breeze and gaze at the stars whilst being protected by the Ceratopogonidae (Midge) proof mesh (yes it does work, no bities at all).
Do yourself a favour and check these out at your local camping store.
Should be called a double single
The stretcher itself is average. But a center bar running vertical from top to bottom is sinister!!
It's two singles side by side. No way can you pass it off as a queen!
For it to be a queen or even double you should be able to sleep in the center if desired.
I would not recommend. Sorry
The construction and design is bar none a great idea, but for a single stretcher not a queen.
If it was listed as a double single or side by side single then yeah that would be fair.
I'd rather sleep on the ground then a hard center bar digging into your back all night.
good, but with room for improvement
It's not a bad design, quick set up and packing in, comfortable sleeping even in winter and - degrees if used with self inflatable.
+ Quick set up and packing in
+ comfortable sleeping
- quite a bit condensation in tent in winter a goretex fly would be better
- no way to keep outer fly flaps rolled up as there are no straps (very silly oversight as older version has it)
A great idea
This improbable-looking structure is actually very practical and very comfortable. By day it is a cot for reclining and sitting on. The addition of the tent makes it shower and insect proof, and the flysheet would allow it to withstand a fair sort of rainstorm. In fine conditions the door covers on each side can be rolled up to catch breezes through the no-see-um insect screens. There are storage pouches inside and those little corner windows have zip covers on the inside to protect your sleeping face from the morning sun.
The tent zips to the cot. This creates a sleeve between the cot and tent that is perfect for a sleeping mat. In anything but warm conditions a mat is essential otherwise the cot makes for a cold sleep. Underneath the cot there are storage nets for shoes and the like. I love being able to get in and out of this like a normal raised bed. It really does set up quickly and there are none of the usual tent worries about keeping the dirt out and the floor protected.
In strong wind and rain it would really to be under an awning or annexe. The poles are very light and flexible and a decent wind would make short work of the tent, in my opinion. The clips that hook the tent roof to the poles seem to be made for thicker poles - I wonder if the skinny poles are just for this model. The end-legs should lock down, which they apparently do not. Without anyone in the cot the end-legs fold up (i.e. collapse) easily, which is most likely to be a problem if kids are playing in it or if there is any sort of slope or unevenness to the ground.
I really liked this product whether I was using it as a sun-lounge, a bench seat or as a cozy tent.
Good for its intended purpose; comfortable
