Therm-a-Rest UltraLite Cot

Strenuous treks are often met with uncomfortable, uneven, and rocky sleeping surfaces. The Therm-a-Rest UltraLite Cot lets you recharge properly for the next day’s activities by way of a cot that gets you several inches off the ground while weighing little (just below or just above 3 pounds, depending on the size) and taking up no more room in your pack or bike pannier than a small tent would. Its BowFrame design is devoid of painful crossbars and squeaky joints, and sets up in three minutes to support up to 325 pounds on its water-resistant nylon laminate surface — though if you weigh less than 175 lbs you can ditch two of the six bows to further reduce the weight to about 2 pounds.
