That ones is comfortable, clunky to put together but doesn’t take too long.I’m in the same boat; seeking one for use in my Kifaru 8 man while base/truck side camping. Seen some at reasonable price points but haven’t pulled the trigger yet.
I’ll likely try out this one unless there is a better option:
Hard to argue the lightweight options....Been using the Thermarest Luxurylite cot the passed couple of years and it’s been great. Put my Xtherm pad on it and it’s been super comfy. Makes up for some minor uneven ground issues. Only downfall I’ve seen so far....2.5# weight penalty. That’s the only thing I dislike about it.
I use an ultralight because it packs the size of a lunchbox and space is premium in my truck. I use a light pad with the cot and am very warm.Does a cot increase or decrease r value or pad / heat loss to the ground? I have limited experience with them since I left .mil 1000 years ago. I inherited 3 mil cots from a buddy but have used them very little.
Question, why use a light weight backpacking type cot for truck camping?
