Perfect for fast and light campers, and motorcycle or bicycle tourers – the ultralight yet strong Cot 1 from Helinox gets you off the cold ground and away from any creepy crawlies.
In this video, our gear guru Lauren gives you the full lowdown on the Cot One from Helinox.
She starts off by showing you what comes in the bag, how to assemble the feet, attach them to the stretcher, and tension it properly. Then she runs you through the materials, construction and dimensions, and gives it the comfort test to show how it fares for back and side sleepers.
