    Helinox high cot!

    Got it in today ,from my little knowledge of cots ,it seems very well built and solid! Goes together easy like the cot belong high but legs add just a bit of cumbersome, not bad but a bit ,it dies have flat spot in between legs that could be used to keep cot in lower position would need to secure legs though! Comfortable it is for sure definitely going to sleep good,feels good in all position back ,side & stomach!

    I have the Helinox Max Cot.
    Haven't used it for more than a test night's sleep, but I agree they are well built.
    Looking forward to getting more use of it this summer.

    Helinox is the gold standard, that's for sure. And you pay for it. But most would agree it is worth the price. I bought a Helinox "Knock-Off" from Amazon. A Chinese imitation. Failed the first night I used it, and no I am not a giant nor do I weigh a ton. I am 6' and 190 lbs. The tent was pitched on a bit of an incline. Not much, about a 3 degree grade. The legs folded and snapped off within an hour or so.

    Sometimes you have to pay for quality.
