A nice cot can mean a big difference in how you sleep if you are backpacking or just out for a weekend camping trip. Hard ground and cold weather don’t combine well to make for a good sleeping experience.
With a camping cot, however, you can enjoy your hike or camping experience so much more.
You will have a place to sit and even to store some of your gear underneath the cot, although don’t expect too much room as they are usually just a few inches off of the ground.
Compare these two cots with your budget, preferences, and particular camping or backpacking context. By looking at these two products side by side, you’ll be better able to make the right choice for you.
