The Thermarest LuxuryLite Ultralite Cot is a comfortable and lightweight camp bed with a simple tent pole style construction and small pack size.
As light as 2 lb (.9 kg), the award-winning UltraLite Cot is lighter and packs smaller than any cot on the market. Now offered in an expanded range of sizes, this lightweight cot opens up new opportunities for comfortable nights outdoors. The patented BowFrame™ cot design creates a stretch-free fabric bed that offers superior, off-the-ground sleeping comfort, and the ultralight cot comes with a stuff sack for easy packing, whether you’re out fishing or kayaking for the weekend, or riding a dual sport across the continent.
I used to sleep on something like this when I was a lad - camping in cotton Patrol tents where weight wasn`t an issue - so I know how comfortable cots are. The traditional heavy and bulky versions were fine for car camping but were too heavy and bulky for motor bikes or cycling - Thermarest have solved this problem - this new cot is just as good as the trad version but without the weight and pack size.
Its expensive but if you have a long trip in mind or you camp a lot then it could easily be worth it over a long run. Backed by Thermarest quality and customer service you have no need to worry about the life of the product.
The claimed `three minute setup` seemed a bit ambitious. Took me more like 5 but it was my first time setting it up. I would guess that would quicken the more I got used to it. I do like the fact that you have the choice to double bowe the legs for extra strength if needed.
