  1. Great Cot
    Review by Poppie

    Now that I've gotten older I needed a good cot for the fishing and hunting camps. I researched all the cots and decided to go with the Maine Military Cot. I was not disappointed in the least and am very happy with my purchase. I'm a big man at 6' 1'' weighing 280lbs with very broad shoulders and powerfully built. I give this information only to help you in your research as this info from others helped me in my decision making. I will itemize my findings for you:

    Cot Length - Perfect. Plenty of room to raise my arms under pillow and feet do not hang off.

    Cot Width - Perfect. Did want it to wide incase I needed to push up on each of the side rails and lift myself off the cot when my lower back is acting up.

    Strength of cot - Does not shake of move excessively when getting on or off or tuning over. Feels very secure. Can set on the side rails with no problems.

    Quality of cot - Very pleased. Frame and legs are incredibly sturdy. Fabric stretches tight as a drum head and does not sag but just a little. The complaints I've read about in reviews about the fabric making unbearable noise must be written by people who are extremely light sleepers and must find something to complain about. I personally don't find the noise an issue at all and I consider myself easily annoyed by unwanted noise at night.

    Set up and take down - Quick and easy and had no problems at all with the end rails. However I do have very strong hands and arms. But even folks with less strength I believe would not have to much of a problem. Its mind over matter once you see how it goes together. Goes back in the carry bag very easy.

    Great cot and I look forward to using it for years to come. Thanks Byer of Maine! (Posted on 8/3/2013)

  2. I can't imagine a better cot
    Review by Ann Marie

    Excellent workmanship, design, fabric, size, comfort - everything. However, after setting it up 4 times, I'm still having trouble getting the end rails on. It takes great hand strength to put the rails in the slots and I have not been able to set it up without my husband's assistance. Any suggestions for me? (Posted on 11/25/2012)

  3. Great cot
    Review by Skater

    Bought this cot for a 24hr skate relay....Light enough to deal with...super sturdy...yes, the ends are a little difficult to attach, but that is what gives nylon a very tight stretch...length is great. (Posted on 8/5/2012)

  4. Research took me here
    Review by Mr T

    I have been looking at a replacement cot for several months now. I have looked everwhere; REI, EMS, Cabela's, Dick's, Eureka. It was a matter of finding a strong, reliable, not too heavy cot at a price point I could live with. This is the one. (Posted on 6/24/2011)

  5. larger, please
    Review by eliza

    this is an excellent cot, and it is even more excellent in the larger size. i have one now, from your company, that is 39 inches wide. i would buy another one of these larger cots if i could find it available somewhere. do you not still make them? thanks. (Posted on 12/4/2010)

    Review by L. Davis

    Today I received my folding cot that I ordered late last week.

    Not only was it shipped in an incredibly short amount of time but when I opened it up I was so impressed with the quality and strength that I was compelled to write this review as soon as I could.

    I will be using this cot on my next trip in October and I am sure it will perform way beyond my expectations.
