The TriLite Folding Cot is both lightweight and compact. As the name suggests, the rugged aluminum frame folds in thirds, to an overall length of just 27" and weight of under 7 lbs! When folded, it takes up about as much space as a sleeping pad, but unlike a pad, the TriLite gets you off the ground! Four spring steel legs and a rip stop polyester cover provide a comfortable sleeping surface that conforms to support your body. Two adjustable straps will keep your sleeping pad in place on cold nights. An integral 12" pocket is handy to store your glasses, a flashlight and a book. The TriLite carries in a durable storage bag with padded adjustable shoulder strap.
