Coleman Trailhead II Camping Cot
- The sturdy steel frame gives it enough stability on any terrain
- It can be easily assembled when in use and easy to pack too
- Comparably lightweight
- If you are a heavier person (over 250 lbs / 113 kg), the fabric might stretch or even rip at the seams. Some users report so.
Camping cots provide campers with lightweight alternatives for their sleeping requirements, thus reducing the amount of luggage that you need to carry. Camping also requires the use of compact items, given that campers are limited of space and at the same time, they would like to use equipment that they can keep for a long time. As a camping enthusiast, I know a good cot when I see one and whenever I get a cot with the tag military, I know that it will endure many days of hard use.
The Coleman Trailhead II Cot is a military style camping cot with good length and width, which ensure that you sleep comfortably. Even people who are taller than six feet can use the cot comfortably. The cot is made in the rugged military style. It is also made of a steel frame that will last years of use and will take the weight put on it without buckling. However, make sure that you do not subject it to more weight than it is designed to handle. Its polyester fabric bed will last many washes and many years of use in exposed conditions. The camp cot can hold weight of up to 300 lbs (~ 137kg), which makes it ideal for many people. In my many years of camping, one thing I have come to abhor is sleeping on the ground because of the insects and other crawling animals. The camping cot provides you with alternative storage space as it is fitted with side pockets.
