TriLite Cot

TriLite Cot

Product Review (submitted on March 30, 2012):

The Byer TriLite Cot is awesome. It's just the right size for a 2-man, 5' x 7' tent: I can put the cot near one long wall and have a small pathway between my gear bag and a small table to access the door to the outside. I loathe the idea of sleeping on the ground and have never camped without a cot. This one is a lot easier to set up, takes up less verticle space, and weighs less than others I have used. The fabric for the cot and the carrying bag seem strong and durable. The same is true for the hardware. Though I don't know if the cot fabric at the folding areas wil wear over time but that should be years to come if at all. I didn't know that I didn't have to wrestle with my sleep pad through the night until I got the TriLIte. The fixed straps to hold the pad in place are indispensible. The side storage pouch is most convenient.
I use a cheap, closed cell pad on top and I'm fine with that. But I know that adding a decent inflatable pad would make this luxurious.
