Easy assembly and comfortable.

I have not yet used this camping, but I am looking forward to getting off the ground. Assembled two cots in the family room in 5 minutes. So comfortable that I almost fell asleep in it just trying it out. I found that if I inserted one base leg into a rail (which was on the the floor) and leaned on the base leg a little bit to compress it, I could insert it more easily into the other rail. That is the only "tricky" part to assembling it. Be careful to enter the cot only from the sides. I kneeled on it from the end (just canvas there) and thought the canvas might tear-it didn't, but left me with a big enough fear that I might not be so lucky the next time. I am well pleased with this and all other Alps Mountaineering products I have purchased (camp chairs).
