Looking for a pack-friendly sleep solution for your next backpacking trip? Simply want a low-hassle cot to take on your next campout? If either of these apply then the new Ready Lite Cot is for you! The Ready Lite Cot uses a 7000 series aluminum design frame and 420D polyester honeycomb rip stop fabric throughout. The use of aluminum rather than steel makes the cot extremely light – weighing in at under 5 pounds yet still extremely durable! The unique design breaks the cot down small enough to fit into a 7 x 17 inch carry bag and makes setting up and taking down a breeze! Don’t be fooled by it’s light stature, the Ready Lite Cot has a 300-pound weight capacity!

NOTES: The Boss doesn’t go camping without a Ready Lite anymore. The comfort FAR exceeds the size and weight of bringing one along.

They are a little fiddly to set up the first time, please watch our video.

Only one cot will fit in any of our 2-3 person backpacking tents. Two cots will fit in a Big Agnes Rabbit Ears 4 or Tensleep Station 4 with a little room between to walk. 3 Cots fit in our 6-person tents, with not much room to walk.
