Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for back sleepers This cot is really comfortable for a nap. However, if you like to sleep on your side or stomach, it is not the best option. All the padding makes it really only supportive if you sleep on your back. It's OK as a chair with the back raised, but not super sturdy that way. I'm 5'2" and 125 lbs. Thought I might just be too small for this cot. Maybe if I were bigger, I wouldn't sink into the padding. My husband, 6" 200 lbs, found it comfortable, but the lack of firm support made his back very sore the next day. This cot seems like such a great idea. It has just lost a little practicality in its' execution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extreme Comfort Strictly for car camping. Does not pack up small either like the description on the site states. This is the one bulky, luxury item worth hauling. Amazing no poke, stable, comfortable sleep surface. If you compare this to the Cabela comfort cot you will find that the Cabela cot is made with more durable components and is a bit bulkier and wider. However this cot is equally as comfortable and slightly more streamlined. If you are rough with your stuff and over 210 lbs. go with Cabela's comfort cot. Otherwise this one is of equal quality and comfort and will save you a little space and weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rolls Royce of Cots I cannot say enough about this cot. After years of sleeping on river rock at Reggae on the River, my 40 year old body couldn't take it anymore. My sister and I each picked one of these sweet puppies up and couldn't be happier with every penny spent. It cradles you, supports you just how you like it after adjusting and is sturdy as all get out. Strictly a car camping item, it's big but you know, when if good night's sleep is something you enjoy, you'll embrace the bulkiness of it. Just used it at another festival for a midday nap/lay down under the pop up and all afternoon all we heard was, "oh wow, those are amazing!" So yeah, if you're debating on saving a buck or two, stop. Buy this baby, you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very very comfortable, but not light and not small I'm 71 years old and not in love with sleeping on the ground any more, partly becasue I get up so often in the middle of the night to relieve myself, and climbing in and out of the sleeping bag tends to wake me up too much. I have used this cot for many nights indoors visiting my daughter in Colorado, and it's very comfortable and convenient. It folds up nicely to fit in the back of my Subaru Outback. It can also be used as a lounge chair with a locking mechanism that gives you a lot of options for what angle you want to lean back. Seems very well built, very sturdy - I expect to get many years use out of it. I have an REI Kingdom 4 tent, and two of these cots fit inside so my wife and I can camp in luxury.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reverse the Nuts! This cot is very comfortable but bulky. The main design flaw is that on the tubular bars (both sides) the nuts face toward the mattress, because the bolts extend past the nuts and have very rough sharp ends they will quickly cut through the fabric and create large holes in the material, not a show stopper but if your a little OCD like me and you pay $150 for an item you would expect this type of issue to have been resolved in design. If you buy I recommend reversing the bolts and having the nuts on the outside.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Product needs improvement... This product was the most comfortable cot I had ever used. However, the stress bearing components that were used to construct the flexible joints with the multi-position twist knobs are made of plastic. They broke on my cot the 3rd time it was laid out for use and will not allow the center cot legs to touch the ground. Ultimately, the cot will not lay flat anymore, or fold properly. Hopefully, this is a known design weakness that will be addressed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bolts poke into the mattress The Kingdom Cot is so very comfy and makes for a great night sleep. Obviously they are bulky, and my only real issues is the frame bolts poke into the mattress and tear it. I exchanged my first two cots and on the second set I installed some cap nuts, "acorn nut", to protect the mattress from the sharp bolts. The nuts are M6x1 thread and reasonable prices can be found online.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tends to fall flatter than 180 degrees On the one hand if you get it set right, it's a comfy night's sleep. However 2 different camping trips it's slipped a cog in the middle of the night leaving me with the choice of wrestling with it in the dark or sleeping with my head lower than my feet. The twisty handles are not easy to maneuver for one person holding the top 1/3 still while reaching across the thing and remembering righty-tighty, lefty-loosy. If you don't tighten both knobs before letting go, it all falls down & you start over again. For the price and the REI brand, I expected better mechanics.

Questions & Answers

We just purchased the Kingdom Cot 3 today, but were disappointed that is does not come with a protective case. Can such a case be purchased as an accessory?

Asked by: JBAck
It comes in a very heavy duty cardboard box that opens easily because it isn't glued shut. I just use the box for storage and transportation.

What cot do you recommend for stomach and side sleepers? Would adding a pad help with this cot?

Asked by: homebody
The Kingdom Cot 3 is a great option for stomach and side sleepers as it offers a lot of padding. Adding a sleeping pad to the cot is not necessary as it is already padded.

Washing instructions for fabric? Thanks!

Asked by: camperman
We recommend spot cleaning the fabric when necessary. If you do need to wash the entire cot, we recommend washing with a garden hose and a soft cleaning brush with gentle soap and air drying.
