Pretty good, but a compromise

I bought this for use in a smaller tent where my Army cot was too tall. Assembly wasn't too difficult, but it requires you to feed the side rails through sleeves in the fabric each time. I was hoping you could fold them while in the sleeve, but there's not enough room. The feet require a little force to put in, so if you don't have enough upper body strength you're going to have problems here. I did have to drill out one of the holes since it was too small, but it worked just fine afterwards (I would have been in trouble if I hadn't assembled it at home before my first trip, though).

In use, the feet and head area are a little floppy, but I didn't even notice once I had all of my bedding on there.

One thing, the name says "Lightweight". I'd have used the term compact, as it weighs nearly as much as my Army cot, though takes up much less room. Certainly not a backpacking item.

Overall, it does what I wanted, but won't replace the big cot when I have the bigger tent.
