Pros Small packed size, doesn’t weigh muchEasy to unfold, single-piece construction, comfortableIncredibly easy to set up, relatively lightweightExceptionally comfortable, easy to set upLightweight, compact
Cons Difficult to assemble, not our favorite when it comes to comfortCan occasionally pinch your hands unfolding itDoesn’t seem as durable, average in comfortBulky, heavyVery hard to set up, seems less durable
Bottom Line While the Desert Walker Ultralight cot costs less than the other ultralight models, we weren’t thrilled with it overallThe Coleman Pack-Away Cot is an all-around fantastic option that we would highly recommend for most peoplePairing an excellent overall performance with a very reasonable price, the KingCamp Folding Deluxe is a great choice for the bargain conscious shopperThis is one of the most comfortable cots that we have testedThis is the top cot for your next backpacking trip
