High Tech Cot
- Product Review (submitted on March 8, 2012):
I used the four pole set-up and took this backpacking. At just over two pounds, it seemed a small price to pay for the promise of good sleep on those first, sore nights. For me, compact-ness is nearly as important as weight, and the high tech cot is an easy stow.
It performed very well, and was quite comfortable. The temperature dropped into the teens, but with the addition of a space blanket the airflow underneath the cot was not a problem.
If you're a back-sleeper, this cot will absolutely serve you well. I tend to sleep on my sides, and it was still nice, though if you have a choice find a sleeping pad that has adequate width to cover the side poles. My Z-Lite was not quite enough.
I absolutely recommend it if you have the space and can "spend" the two pounds of packweight on it.
Sturdy. Comfortable. Lightweight. Packs small.
