Exactly as advertised--Comfortable & BIG

The Alps Mountaineering Camp Cot is everything advertised---large, comfortable, and easy to use. It is not for backpacking, but is a CAMP cot, just as described. The cot is easy to set up and take down (I set it up in the dark the first time I used it.) It packs well in its case and fits easily in with other gear. I read some other reviews before buying saying that these cots are unstable. The cot does have a slight end to end sway, but I had to almost try to get this effect. It is very wide and takes up a large amout of floor space, but more than makes up for this in comfort. Like they brag about on the mattress commercials---I awoke with no back pain. My only problem is the height. It is not comfortable to sit on as my feet just reach the ground (I'm 5'10"), and the somewhat sharp side rails dig into the back of my legs. However, this is a minor inconvenience when compared to the comfort the cot provides. It also appears to be fairly sturdy and will likely hold up if treated well. I have and will recommend this product to friends.
