My Personal Experience with Camp Cots

For years I slept on the bare ground. Soon after I upgraded to closed cell military style mattresses and then to self-inflating mattresses.

On one trip I was introduced to a camp cot by one of my friends. I quickly purchased a similar model and now I never leave home without camp cot.

As get older and a little wiser, I have upgraded this concept. I now place my self-inflating mattress in between my cot and sleeping bag.

I have also placed my Bivy Bag on top as well, to construct a very efficient and comfortable sleeping system. Have a look at how this Bivy Bag would help you get o great night’s sleep.

Final Thoughts

Camp cots have been used by the Military for years. There is no doubt that these cots provide a much better sleeping experience than sleeping on the bare ground.

The Big Bear Extra Large Camping Cot can be seen here.

You can add a closed cell or self-inflating mattress between the cot and your sleeping bag. I have also placed my sleeping pads and mattresses inside my Bivy Bag and then placed this entire system on the cot.

Talk about a great sleep. I could have easily slept in, but the morning sunrise won that battle. After all is said and done, camp cots have been around for years and they are the way to go.

Quick and easy to set up. Don’t leave home without yours! You’ll be much happier in the morning.
