Coleman has long been synonymous with creating outdoor gear that can stand the test of time. The Coleman Cot Pack Away with Side Table is far from the exception. Living up to the Coleman name, this is a beloved cot and camping bed that can be used both indoors and outdoors.
When opened up for full use the cot itself measures at 80 (L) x 32 (W) x 17 (H). It can easily accommodate individuals up to 6 feet 6 inches tall, which is larger than the average camping bed. With a generous width, moving about during the night won’t feel like a risky proposition. Able to support up to 300 pounds, the cot does not sag in the middle despite not locking into place like many available camping cots. The cot utilizes the weight of your body to hold down the unit without wobbling. It is a sturdy cot built on a strong folding steel frame. The bed itself can be set up in under a minute and can be stowed away with ease in the included carry bag.
Of course, what really makes this camping bed special is the added side table. The removable side table comes equipped with a generously sized cup-holder to easily stow your drink, snack, magazines, or other personal items. Similarly priced cots do not include a side table, forcing you to keep all of your drinks or personal belongings on the floor. Not exactly ideal when bugs and other critters abound! Since the side table is removable, you do have the option of not utilizing the table should your tent or area be lacking in space. Speaking of space, the generous underneath area of the cot allows for you to store any extra gear or clothing you might require on your outing. This frees up additional space on your tent floor.
When you’re ready to hit the road and head home (or simply send some guests packing) the cot itself folds up with ease and stows away in the carry bag. To store, you can slip the cot into any closet space or under bed storage space. You can even choose to store the cot in your car trunk or garage.
