Not as easy as they say

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Disappointed from Chicago, IL on Wednesday, August 12, 2009
I tried out the cot at home, and realized I needed to buy a camping pad to place on it. So I bought one of those self-inflatable ones, and found it to be much more comfortable. The cot was very time consuming to put together. The poles were hard to insert into the fabric because there were no holes at the end of it, it was sealed up at both ends, so you had to maneuver the poles into a slit about three inches from the edge, and sometimes the poles would disconnect while inside the fabric, or they would turn so that the holes weren't showing. It was also really hard to connect the frame; it took two people to put it together. Although I preferred sleeping on this cot than on an air mattress, I wish I would have found something more easier and less time consuming to put together.
