    I find the smaller cots are better than the big ones.


    But seriously, the hotel cots are the best. I always pack one in the enclosed trailer hunting camp or when we camp out of guys' shops. For boat trips I run the smaller cots now.

    Bedside table is the bomb... another vote for the cabelas outfitter xl. 6 ft 2 and 260 here and best cot I have used so far.

    Re: Cot for a large man.

    I’m a side sleeper and cots just don’t do it for me. When I was young we used 6” high density foam on a tarp in our wall tents and slept incredibly well.(just make sure you won’t have any water coming in if it rains)
    If you can pack it in, You can pack it out !!!

    I am 6'4" and 300+ and I have had a couple different ones, but latest is the outfitter XL nice and big in every direction. I use a 4" foamy and sleep like a log, also it is higher so easier to get in and out of

    I have been as heavy as 270lbs and have enjoyed my browning XL cot. A cabelas pad and about 12 years use on it so far!

    Don't forget to put the cross supports in or this can happen at 4am
