BETTER THAN I EXPECTED!! Way worth all the time invested in research, comparison and review reading. With something like plastic-ware or an extension cord, you can generally make a quick decision without a lot of thought. Camping stuff, for example, can be a different story. I’ve relied on reviews like these to help me avoid wasting my time and money. For the most part, it has paid off; which I why I am leaving this review. Camping is an important tradition to my family. With this cot, I researched and compared many different products. It was important that it fit and support my 6”3” – 215lb husband (300lb max). It does. Sturdiness and durability were also a big factor. Again, this product performs very well. Storage and ease of use were another determining factor. It’s a little on the heavy side (over 35lbs) but that (should (and does)) means it’s made well. Easy set up. A little awkward to open. Carry case fits well without stretching the zipper. Canvas material is smooth (not soft) and is proving durable. Flaps at the middle on both sides cover where it folds/pivots- not a real factor. The table was a little on the flimsy side, as compared to the rest of the cot, but I’m not going to dance on it. The little table will attach on either side for convenience. Its mesh can holding hole is mostly handy. Sometimes things roll in, but not really worth mentioning. Table measures 1 sq. ft. Besides all these things I have mentioned, a big selling point for me was that there was no ‘head’ or ‘foot’ bars. Head/foot bars are like the bars on the side, only they are at the head and foot of the cot. The reviews of the cots that had the extra bars weren’t all that great. The dimensions are as far as I know accurate. 80 x32 x17. Aside from camping, the kids have had sleepovers where ‘one toooo many kids came to play’; the cots worked great for an extra bed. They stood up well too. Folded up in the carry case, they are about the size of a folding chair. So it doesn’t take up much room at all. One night, the honey suggested we sleep on our back deck, under the stars on these cots. It was awesome. He did complain that there is no cushion/give. I said, “Duh, your mattress is in the house.” If you’re the princess (and the pea), get a little extra padding to sleep on. So yeah, Great product, great value. Get yourself 5 today!! lol
