10 Best Rated Low Camping Cots

If you need a cot that will fit in any tent, no matter how low or small, you will want to check this list with low camping cots, all popular products from the best-known brands in this industry.

When you are in a small tent and you sleep on the floor, then this space is fully occupied and you have no place for gear. But even very small and low tents are high enough to accommodate a low camping cot.

But what exactly I mean by a low cot? Well, you will see them below in the list, and you will realize that their height is roughly in the range of 11-20 cm or so. Such a cot is a platform that raises you above cold and uncomfortable ground, and at the same time this allows you to store lots of gear underneath the cot.

With such a cot you do not need a sleeping pad unless this is about cold-weather camping. But even in a cold environment, you need far less insulation when you are off the ground. This is because roughly speaking, you lose 40-50 times more warmth to the cold ground than to the air around you. This all depends on the type of ground underneath you, and quite generally it is essential to be separated from the ground.

All these cots are collapsible and this also implies that they are nicely packable. You will see some of them also in my separate list of collapsible cots. They are lightweight and backpack-portable, so you can attach them to the pack, and you can also transport them on a bicycle or a motorbike.

So  here is my list of low camping cots ordered by height, from higher to lower, please follow the links for more details:
