2014 Gear Of The Year: Disc-O Bed Cam-O-Bunk XL Cot
Good sleeping mats and cots aren’t cheap. Come to think of it, neither is any quality camping gear, which is why it would be nice if some of it could be used for things other than camping. A $200 sleeping mat can be incredibly comfortable, but you still might not offer it to an overnight guest in your home. This is where the Disc-O Bed Cam-O-Bunk XL comes in.
People gravitate toward cots over a sleeping mat because they’re familiar. They’re raised off the ground, just like an ordinary bed. The Cam-O-Bunk XL has no cross bars on the ends for you to bump into, and the bed is 34.5” wide so you have plenty of room to stretch out. What make it unique however, is that it can be stacked like a bunk bed. In a larger tent this allows you to have double the floor space for gear, playing cards if it rains, etc. And at home you’ll suddenly have the ability to accommodate two extra guests with a sturdy, comfortable bunk bed.
The Disc-O Bed Cam-O-Bunk XL cot stores efficiently into two carrying cases and doesn’t require any tools to assemble. Everything snaps together in about fifteen minutes. Each bunk can support up to 500 lbs, and the rounded feet stop it from sinking into the ground or damaging your tent. A nice added feature is that the bunk easily converts into a couch. All you do is flop one side down from the top and stuff it with a sleeping bag or two. If you’re looking for a comfy place to crash that can fill a lot of different needs, check out the Disc-O Bed Cam-O-Bunk XL.
