Here, you'll find everything you need for your next camping adventure. Even though camping is all about soaking up everything Mother Nature has to offer, everyone wants the comforts of home when it’s time to go to sleep. That’s why it’s important to find a cozy yet strong camping cot for those nights at the campsite. Camping cots from RIO are perfect for relaxing in your tent after a long day of fishing or hiking. Enjoy a sound night’s sleep while you’re away from your bed with a sturdy, comfortable cot loaded with extra features to make you feel right at home.
Camping Cots with Convenient Features
Whether you’re hunting, swimming, or hiking, chances are the last thing you want to do is spend time and energy on setting up an elaborate camp at the end of the day. Instead of expending extra energy blowing up an inflatable sleeping pad, or risking a poor night sleep by tossing a sleeping bag on the ground in your tent, make sure you pack a tent cot from RIO. These camping cots have no loose parts, so set up is a snap with the step-down locks.
Their innovative design means there’s no need for uncomfortable end bars, which gives you more room to relax your head and feet. Stretch out and enjoy the roomy camping cot with a rugged yet comfy polyester sling. Plus, you’ll enjoy the convenience of spacious cot caddies for convenient storage and easy access. For campers who can’t quite say goodbye to technology outdoors, choose a camp cot with a padded laptop holder and double zippered lockable compartments. Keep your eyeglasses safe and close by with a built-in eyeglass holder. These mesh side pockets also make for an important safety feature, allowing you to store flashlights, bug spray, extra warm layers, and self defense gear like bear spray close at hand. Some of our camping cots even feature a side tray with an adjustable, insulated cup holder.
All of our cots offer zippered carry bags with comfortable handles for easy storage and transportation to and from the campsite.
Camping Cots Made to Last
Comfort isn’t the only important feature in a camp cot. Choosing a durable folding cot means it will stand up to the elements outside. Camping cots from RIO are made with powder coated steel, resistant to rust and corrosion. These ultra-strong camping beds can hold up to 600 lb., perfect for big and tall campers. These models are also constructed with a patented tension lock stability system for unmatched strength. And when you’re done at the campsite, pack up your folding cot into a convenient storage carry bag for simple transport back to your car. With camping cots from RIO, you'll enjoy a restful night's sleep even when you’re far away from your own bed.
Are camping cots worth it?
When it comes to your sleep setup at camp, camping cots are a significant upgrade over most options—they offer unbeatable convenience and comfort, help manage your temperature in warm or cool conditions, and are built to last for many adventures to come.
When it comes to convenience, camping cots can’t be beat. Unlike other camping bed options such as air mattresses or inflatable sleeping pads, outdoor cots don’t require elaborate, exhaustive setup and tear down. Simply arrive at camp, pitch your tent and unfold your cot. They also provide convenient features like mesh side pockets and even side tables. They also add more space to small tents, allowing you to stow camping bags, shoes, clothes, and other items underneath.
Camp cots also offer superior comfort. Not only do they provide a smooth, supportive sleeping surface, they also elevate you off the ground. In the winter, this keeps you from having to sleep on frozen ground that soaks up body heat. In the summer, they allow for airflow to improve circulation and keep you cool as you sleep.
In terms of durability, camping cots are the best solution for camp beds. First of all, outdoor cots don’t run the risk of holes and leaks like air mattresses and sleeping pads. They are also built with strong, easy to clean polyester and rust and corrosion-resistant powder coated steel frames.
How do I choose a camping cot?
Here are the top features to consider to ensure you choose the best camping cot for your needs:
- Weight: The average camping cot will weigh between 15 and 20 pounds. Cots with features like heavy-duty steel frames, oversized cots, and extra padding will be on the heavier end of the spectrum, though they may provide more comfort and convenience. At the end of the day, weight is important when it comes to how much you are willing to carry to and from the campsite.
- Size: Size is very important to consider, as size determines how comfortably you will sleep on your camping cot. Make sure you check out the weight capacity, width and length of the cot prior to purchasing to ensure it will be a good fit. The weight capacity of the cots available from ShelterLogic varies from 300 to 600 pounds, while length ranges from about 6 to 7 feet.
- Additional features: Get the most bang for your buck with added features for superior convenience and comfort. If it’s important to keep glasses, flashlight, bug spray, hand warmers, and other necessities nearby, consider choosing a camping cot based on additional storage and side table features.
Can you put cots in tents?
Yes, camping cots are designed to fit inside of tents for better sleep in the outdoors. If you’re unsure whether a camping cot will fit inside of your tent, make sure to check your tent’s dimensions and compare to the height, length, and width of the outdoor cot you are considering purchasing.
