Review, a little about me:

I am a heavy-set guy with a bad back and knees.  I don't do well with air mattresses because I have to crawl from the floor and it doesn't work well for me.  If you want to buy something more practical like a cot, you just can't go to your local store and buy a cot off the shelf because they are for "average" weight individuals.  After a lot of research, I purchased this cot online 2 years ago. 

The Cot
It sleeps amazingly well. I am 6'4", 285 lbs. and had some room to spare.  It is extremely easy to use and it assembles in two minutes from bag.  Easy to stow-a-way.  The best part about this cot is that I never feel like I am going to crash to the ground if I move around too much.

  • Sturdy
  • Well Made
  • Easy to use


  • Could use a little padding but fine with if you don't have it.

There is nothing I do not like about this cot other than I felt it needed to be softer, but I have a bad back.   To maximize your degree of comfort, I'd recommend buying a sleeping bag or some type of cushion to sleep on when you do utilize the cot.  But even without padding, the TETON is very comfortable. 
Blantex has produced a quality product and it is as sturdy and comfortable as the first day I used it. I use this cot on a regular basis and I have no complaints about my purchase.   I would definitely recommend the TETON XXL Cot to anyone.
