Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-designed, & prevents pad/bag sliding on cot Perfect addition to Therm-a-rest cot. Used on a recent 10-day backpacking trip. Keeps out the bugs and keeps a pad and/or sleeping bag firmly positioned on the cot. Sail-like structure could be a problem in a strong wind, I suppose, but a minor easily-solved issue. Expect a rain fly addition might soon be available. Meanwhile, I have a light weight tarp in case of rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must-have addition for Therm-a-Rest cot Bought a couple of years ago for summer Sierra backpacking. Around 20 nights of use so far. Easy setup, and keeps out the bugs, as advertised. One minor issue: it's height and width easily catch the wind... Only once during an unusually windy night did this cause the shelter to shake enough to disturb my sleep. If left standing during the day (with nobody on the cot), wind can easily blow the shelter on its side, but this is easily remedied in 10 seconds by simply unhooking the supports. If I didn't already have this, I'd buy the cot tent - even tho night rain storms are rare in the Sierras during summer months. Fortunately Therm-a-rest now has a bug shelter rain fly add-on for $99.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing and works for my dogs! I bought two of these for my dogs ( Flash, Goofus, and Rookie ) for they can sleep outside instead of the truck with me. I had to use a trap just in case it rained.. Flash still is getting used to it but Goofus and Rookie enjoy it.

Can't his be set up on another brand of cot?  Say a rol-a-cot?

Asked by: Andy vet
No answer just a follow up - Andy vet, did you give a try and did it work? From the looks of the attachments it looks like it could potentially be used with TravelChair Sleeprite Cot easily, but some customization might be needed for the roll-a-cot. Interested to hear if you made it work...

Does this include both the cot and screen or just the screen?

Asked by: vencapguy
​The LuxuryLite Cot Bug Shelter includes just the screen. The cot is sold separately.

Can this be used without a cot?

Asked by: REINaavah
The Therm-a-Rest LuxuryLite Cot Bug Shelter is specifically designed to be used with a Therm-a-Rest LuxuryLite cot. It may be possible to set it up alone if you are able to provide enough tension to the corners and structure for the floor of the shelter. Bear in mind, we cannot recommend this kind of setup as it has not been tested by either Therm-a-Rest or REI.
