The Full Review
The Trailhead II Camping Cot is a very comfortable cot that is very sturdy. The canvas has very little sag once it is assembled and you are laying in it. This is awesome as other cots will sag making it less comfortable for sleeping.
This is a very durable cot. The frame is made from thick steel and the canvas is thick and tough. This is one of the tougher cots that I’ve tried and is a great option for a longterm cot. After assembly, the cot does not wobble or lean at all making it very sturdy while sleeping.
If you are camping with kids, this is a great option because it can handle the abuse that kids will put on it. While some cots are more fragile this is a cot that can handle regular and less careful use.
I am a bit bias on size, I like my cots large. That being said, this is a standard size cot that offers plenty of room for most people. I move around when I sleep so I like extra room. When assembled, the cot measures 75 x 35 x 17 and can accommodate a person up to 6’2″ tall.
While I have slept on this cot a handful of times, we actually use these cots for our kids. They have plenty of room for them with room to spare.
This cot does fold up into a relatively small carrying bag, which makes it fairly portable. The only thing about the cot is that it is actually rather heavy for its size. The cot weight a total of 20.9 pounds, which is not a lot but I would have expected less from a cot its size.
While the cot does fold up into a smaller carrying bag the weight does not make it a great option if you are camping at much of a distance from your car. This is a great option for car campers but not a good one for those who will be hiking to their campsite.
The Trailhead II comes with a carrying bag as well as organizing pockets that hang off the side of the cot. The organizing pockets are a nice feature. Often you are required to purchase these pockets as an extra with other cots.
This cot is very well priced. At $39, this is a very affordable cot and you get a lot for the price. With the cot being very durable you can get a longterm cot for under $40.
