Camping Cots – The size of the people using the cot will be a factor in the selection of the camping cots. Larger adults will require more sturdy and durable camping cots. For children, you may want to select cots specifically made for their smaller bodies. If the family is large in number, there are bunk bed camping cots that make it possible to sleep multiple people in a confined space, however, these can be a burden to pack and store.
Weight plays a factor in which cot you choose, because heavier cots can be cumbersome to carry on a long hike. With the advancement of the materials they use in making camping cots, most are relatively light and relatively easy to carry. Nevertheless, be sure to check the weight, or if you purchase the camping cots on the Internet, you should take note of the weight and then lift something similar to get a correct gauge of weight.
Another important attribute is easy assemble, because the last thing you want to do after a long day of hiking, is to follow a complicated instruction manual by the light of the campfire when assembling your camping cots.
