Thermarest's Ultralite cot delivers the comfort of a campbed at a fraction of the weight and packed size, probably too heavy for backpackers unless a good nights sleep is critical to you.

Thermarest says: The lightest, most packable cot on the market.

As light as 2 lbs., the award-winning UltraLite Cot is lighter and packs smaller than any other cot on the market. Now redesigned to include ThermaCapture to help retain your body’s radiant heat, we’ve also revamped the feet and upgraded the carry-bag to make the UltraLite even more compact. So whether you’re fishing, backpacking, kayaking, or riding a motorcycle across the country, this is the cot you need for superior off-the-ground comfort.

ThermaRest's 2017 Luxurylite Ultralite Cot offers the comfort of a traditional campbed but a weight and packed size that just doesn't bear comparison. The sprung pole system that supports the bed is ingenious and this version of the cot has a reflective underside to help keep you warm.

Cots/campbeds are very comfortable but they can be chilly, the reason is that the air circulates underneath the bed carrying away your body warmth - that's why Thermarest offers a cot warmer, which addresses this problem. I wouldn't consider a campbed suitable for backpacking as even this one is still too heavy, however if a good nights sleep is critical to you and your other kit is light it just might be worth it. As a basecamp product though it ticks all the boxes in terms of weight and especially packed size.

Thermarest LuxuryLite Ultralite Cot

I recently started helping out with our local DofE group. Most of my previous experience of ‘camping’ came from a stint in the RAF Regiment where luxury sleeping accommodation was quite a low priority on the kit list. I’m fifty now so a thin foam mat on hard ground really didn’t appeal. I started doing some research and modern air mattresses are good but when I looked further I noticed that a lot of cot reviews were by people saying that they had bought cots because their backs could no longer cope with sleeping on an air mat. I thought I’d skip that part and bought one of the Thermarest cots. I’m 6’2” and weigh about 200 lbs but the cot is strong enough to keep me comfortably off the ground. It takes about 10 minutes to put together or take apart and weights about 1.7 Kg. It packs down into a small bag which doesn’t take up much space in my rucksack. The cot on its own is very comfortable but now I’ve added a soft air mattress on top the combination is excellent. It means I don’t have to worry about exactly how flat the ground is when pitching my tent as the cot levels everything out. I don’t have to worry about punctures and because it bows in the middle, I’m unlikely to roll of it in the night. The combination is good enough that I’ve used it as a spare bed in the house a couple of times. I know that carrying 1.7 Kg of extra weight is not for everyone but for me a couple of extra kilos is a small price to pay for a good night sleep. Walking miles carrying weight when you haven’t slept is just miserable. The cot is bearing up well to use. So far I’ve used it a dozen times and it shows very little sign of wear. One thing to note; I have a two person tent with the entrance at the front so I usually put the cot together outside on the grass and then pass it in. If it’s raining then I can assemble it in the tent but that can be a bit fiddly as you have to keep the door flap open so you can feed the side poles into the sheet. If you have a two or three person tent with the entrance at the side then you may struggle to get the assembled cot into your tent and you stand a good chance of poking holes in the tent if you try to build it inside. If you have a one person tent then I would suggest sticking with an air mattress instead.
