I have used the Thermarest...

I have used the Thermarest LuxuryLite Mesh Cot several times now. My experienced (older) body was not happy with my old blow up pads, floats, and foam that I have used over the years.

I was looking for something that could give me a good night's rest and I found it. It's pricey but prices vary so check around. There is a regular size and a large size. The regular size weighs 3 lbs 2 oz. I use it for kayak camping so weight is not much of a consideration but size is. I have to be able to stow it in through one of my hatches.

The bow frame comes in several pieces including aluminum poles and nylon feet. It took me a while to get the hang of putting it together but it's really a breeze. It raises you about 3 or 4 inches off the floor and is especially appreciated during wet weather camping when wet gear can leave an occasional puddle that might get your a more conventional pad and bedding wet.

I would recommend it to anyone that needs to upgrade to a better system than the pads and mattresses for whatever reason.

First, I am 6'2" and weigh...

First, I am 6'2" and weigh 225 lbs which is important information when considering such a product. The cot is easy to set up and take down. After a couple of times I could put it together in less than a minute. It packs up smaller than my sleeping pad and weighs a little over two pounds.

The comfort is fantastic, and keeps me off the ground even though it is only a few inches tall. No pressure points to deal with like a sleeping pad which is something I'll never use again.

The only drawback is that it takes a little stretching to get it in the door of my small two man Kelty tent that I use solo. It is expensive, but I've never slept so well while canoe camping (used it on a recent week long trip).
Money well spent.
