LuxuryLite Gear invented the UltraLite Cot - US Patent 7,779,491 granted in 2010. We sold our patent and trademark to Cascade Designs in Seattle, WA. They now manufacture the Thermarest Cot and sell them around the world. (if you find a Cheap Clone on Amazon, be aware it will break after a few days of camping and be squeaky when you move.)
Parts for the Thermarest and LuxuryLite Cots.

Click for hints on assembling the LuxuryLite Cots...
A) 4 BOW COT - You can use only 4 bows when you weigh 175lbs or less. They can be single or twist bows.
B) 5 BOW COT - Next step up is using 5 bows. At the foot end put one bow in the second hole from the end, like a 4 bow cot, but with the standard two bows at the chest end. (Always use the two twist bows in the middle two locations). That will sleep 300lb just fine. So you can lose/break an entire bow and still sleep great. Built-in spare parts!!
C) USING DAMAGED PARTS - The most common failure is a cracked foot, next is a bent tube. You can use a bow with cracked feet and/or bent tubes under your feet. There is very little stress on the foot end bow.
Items below for USA delivery only.
International Postage makes buying the Export - Twist Bows above a better value if you need bow tubes, or feet, or both.
