It seems like the older we get, the less interested we are in roughing it when we camp. With each passing year, a comfortable night’s sleep becomes more important than saving a few ounces of pack weight.

Camping pads can’t always shield you completely from all the rocks, roots and bumps in the ground. But you can still get good sleep, even if the ground isn’t smooth, with this lightweight camping cot from Therm-a-Rest. The Therm-A-Rest LuxuryLite UltraLite Cot gets you raised above the ground and uses patented BowFrame Technology that eliminates any discomfort from crossbars against your back.

The Therm-a-Rest LuxuryLite UltraLight Cot is the lightest on the market with a pack weight of only 3 pounds (1.4 kg). Packed in its stuff sack, the cot measures 16 in. x 5 in. (41 cm. x 13 cm.). It may be a few pounds heavier than ultra-light backpacking pads, but for many with back aches it’s well worth the sacrifice.

Putting the cot together is straight forward and takes about 3 minutes with some practice. The cot uses a durable nylon cover and anodized aluminum poles to support the weight of up to 325 pounds (147 kg). If you weigh less than 175 pounds (79 kg) you can reduce the packed-weight even more by using four support bars instead of six.

If you are ready to improve your comfort without sacrificing too much weight, this lightweight camping cot from Therm-a-Rest is a great choice.
