I have used a roll-a-cot for many years and I have been extremely pleased with it. This last May I lost my 10 year old roll-a-cot to the River Gods on the Grand Canyon. I got a replacement through ACK. I have had a chance to use it on the Rogue River a couple of weeks ago. I love it, especially the extra width with the new one. Having a roll-a-cot gets me off the ground and further away from the creepy crawlers and snakes during the night. It makes camping easier and cleaner, meaning it keeps me out of the dirt and sand. It also allows me to choose a rocky/pebbly camping site. Also on river trips I can sleep at the water's edge where it is cooler and I have the sounds of the river to lull me to sleep. It is fantastic on Grand Canyon trips because the open mesh makes it cooler for sleeping. For cold weather I normally bring a Thermarest pad for additional insulation. I am amazed at how well the cot is constructed. It is light weight aluminum and the fabric is a polyester mesh. The design is simple and it is easy to set up. There are 4 pieces to it, the bag, 2 leg assemblies, and the sleeping surface. No extra pieces/parts to loose. The product literature says it can handle 250 pounds but I am sure it can handle a lot more not that I want to try. I never had any problem with my old one and I do not expect to have any problems with my new one. Since the material is polyester be careful around campfires, I am sure hot embers would melt through the polyester. The cot rolls up and has it own sack cover. This doubles as a storage area on the cot when set up. A great place to store stuff while sleeping like a flash light and a water bottle. This makes it easy to reach and find these items in the dark. Even at home this would be very comfortable when an extra bed is needed. It is a hell of lot better than some of the hide-a-bed couches that I have had to sleep on. On road trips when staying at a friend's house it makes sleeping arrangements more convenient. I believe you can not go wrong with a roll-a-cot. It is not something I would take backpacking or out the kayak only camping trip. But with a raft support river trip it is a must have. Also it can be used as a spare bed at home or on the road. ACK had a great price for the cot and they covered the shipping. I would definitely use ACK again for boating and camping supplies.
Slept on the regular cot for 8 days on a rafting trip through the Grand Canyon in April 2015. I ordered the wide because my dog sleeps with me. It is awesome!!! Let me say it again.....IT IS AWESOME!!!
