I did my homework on cots for camping purposes and decided to purchase this cot. For me spending this amount of money is a big deal. I am going on an extended bicycle trip through Florida this winter (2013) and maybe up the east coast in the spring/summer. I needed something that was well made and would fit in my tent. When I received this cot I put it together and started using it every night for the last two weeks. I am 6'5" and weigh 245lbs and side sleep mainly. One night a went to bed with a sore back and when I woke up the soreness was gone. For me that made my purchase well worth it. The materials seem solid and really have to be for its design. Right now it is sitting directly on a tile floor and is holding up perfectly. Getting in and out is a little hard for me since I am 50 and getting up off of a floor isn't a snap anymore. I put my hand in the middle of the cot and sit down and roll in it to get on. The fabric lets you do that but the design is such that when I...
It's not as good as being home in bed but it makes for a much more comfortable night outside. Being up off of the ground is so important. I had to camp in a nasty, rocky place for work this summer and the LuxuryLite held me up over some uneven, uncomfortable ground. It also rained to beat the band while I was there and while my buddies got soaked in a tent, I was just fine on the LuxuryLite with a tarp - being off of the ground is fabulous!
If I can spare the weight and room, I usually use a thermarest backpacking mattress on top of the LuxuryLite for some extra cush and warmth.
I was surprised to read the low-star reviews; it seems like the primary complaint is the difficulty to assemble but that hasn't been my experience. The cot comes in a drawstring nylon bag. The bag has a clear, plastic pocket which displays instructions with color photos - I think you could hand this to someone speaking a different language and they could assemble it based on pictures...
This is one of the best things I have purchased for camping/backpacking in the last 20 years. I slept on it for over a dozen nights this past winter and spring and never had any problems setting it up or taking it down...one little hint, when you are putting it together spread your feet out to the poles running down the length of the cot, this maintains the width of the cot and allows you to put the cross poles with the circular feet on pretty easily. I'm really sorry that some of the other reviewers had difficulty setting it up. I'm a pretty big guy (6'1" and 200 lbs) and this cot allowed me to side sleep. I used a Therm-A-Rest pad for warmth when it was cold (below freezing) and was warmer than I have ever been. Now in the summer I like that it gets me up off the ground and allows air flow underneath to stay cooler. Packs neatly - no problem fitting in the bag. Will be buying several more for the rest of the family.
