If you’re like me when you are camping you will like a comfortable sleeping arrangement so in this review we will take an in-depth look at the Coleman Trailhead Cot. This strong, stable, and comfortable cot will keep you off the ground, and away from bugs and other creepy crawlies.
If you place a sleeping pad on the cot before your sleeping bag or bedding, this will make it even more comfortable. The cot is quite affordable, well built, and portable, so as not to take up too much room in your vehicle, or when storing at home.
The Key Features.
Ease of Use.
The Coleman-Trailhead Cot is a military style cot, which means it is designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. The cot is foldable, and the assembly of the cot is very simple with instructions on how to do so on the bag. Coleman manages this without sacrificing functionality which is often the case when trying to improve user-friendliness.The assembly will become easier with use, which allows more time to focus on other more enjoyable pursuits.
What Are The Benefits You Can Expect From This Cot?
Within reason the weight of this cot means, that should you have to carry the cot over long distances, it won’t be impossible, however, be aware that at 17 lbs it would certainly not suit backpacking or hiking on an extended trip into the woods.
The durability of the design of the Trailhead cot means that your cot will last longer. The cot will also not look worn-out or tattered. Having a military tag usually means a quality product that should perform with satisfaction on many occasions
The compact design of the Coleman cot makes travel easy and does not take up too much space, and space is always sometime we have to keep an eye on when packing for a trip. Camping always requires the best use of compact equipment. So you won’t waste space when carrying this Cot.
High quality means that it won’t easily be broken or damaged. The Coleman company creates a huge array of products now, and they are a very well known brand.
You can rest assured that in the majority of cases you will receive a product that will perform satisfactorily and consistently for a long period. It also means value for your hard earned money.
The supportive design allows a good night’s rest, the frame is strong and will stay steady throughout the night, the fabric is breathable comfortable yet firm and will keep your posture straight while sleeping.
The design also allows you to easily get on and off you won’t strain your back trying to get up from the low level of the ground.
Camping more than once a year usually at holiday time it pack up and lets go but you can make use of it more than once a year and for more than just a camping accessory.
Use it as an extra bed in your home when unexpected guests turn up, maybe the kids are having a sleepover and your one bed short. It could even be a useful resting place for that power nap during the day at the office.

Our Overall Opinion.
This is a really nice cot we give it the thumbs up and we like the fact that it folds into a compact and neat size, that fits into a small car with ease. Space is always at a premium when car camping, plus it’s easy to store at home when not in use.
The cot has a powder coated steel frame which is sturdy and strong albeit a little heavy, However, this is definitely not a backpacking cot, so it still remains portable enough for camping with a vehicle. Coleman has produced a cot that will provide comfort, convenience, reliability, and portability and I give this product a 9 out of 10.
This product is durable enough to take the rough weekends or a long extended use in its stride. We think this is a very high performing cot and would highly recommend it for the recreational camping enthusiast who has a need for a lightweight comfortable and convenient cot on their next outdoor adventure.
