Helinox Cot One 2020 Review by The Good Ride
The Helinox Cot One is a full size bed in a small package. This cot makes for a super comfortable option with or without a sleeping pad. The Cot One only weighs 5 lbs and 2 oz all together with the carrying case.. And is simple and easy to set up and take down.
Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews. We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average camper’s perspective.
How This Review Happened: We borrowed this for an extended demo, and sent it back to the company.
Weight: Packed: 5 lbs 2 oz / Cot Only: 4 lbs. 14 oz
Full Size Dimensions: 74.5 in Long x 26.5 in Wide, 6.5 in Tall
Packed Down Dimensions: 21 in Long x 6 in Wide x 6 in Tall
Packability: For being a full size bed, it really packs down into a small bag. It is easy to break down and simple. The Cot One could be a great option for car camping, tent camping, hiking, or if you don’t mind the weight even a weekend backpacking trip.
Durability: The Helinox Cot One can hold up to 320 lbs. The pieces on the legs where you tension the cot might be the only part of the cot that would have a possibility of wearing out. But it seems well put together and well built. The fabric is durable and strong and I wouldn’t be worried about any tears happening. The Helinox Cot One also comes with a 5 year warranty.
Functionality: Setting up the cot is simple. There are very few pieces to assemble and there are no small pieces that you can lose. The Cot One is comfortable enough to sleep on it alone, but paired with a sleeping pad makes it extra luxurious. It allows you to sleep over any type of surface without feeling any rocks or twigs through the bed, and has nice air circulation if it is warm out.
Overall: If you are looking for a compact, simple sleeping option, maybe the Cot One from Helinox could be a good fit. It makes for a very comfortable alternative than sleeping directly on the ground.
