Lite Cot

“Absolutely the greatest! A game changer for those of us who don’t sleep well on pads or air mattresses”

- Larry, Helinox Customer May 2019  

Lite Cot

Press-fit legs

Lite Cot’s press-fit leg system saves weight, is easy to use, and delivers outstanding support and tension. Easy to deploy, a simple press seats the legs into the durable nylon housings for a secure fit. The system is engineered to flex the poles under the sleeping platform, providing the tension necessary for night-long support.

Lite Cot

Built for performance

The Lite Cot’s seat material is an ultralight, seriously strong polyester ripstop that provides comfort and support and resists damage from sun and weather. This performance fabric was specifically selected for Lite Cot to improve packability and reduce weight. Made to withstand years of outdoor use, it’s easy to clean with soap and water, and is backed by our five-year warranty. 

Lite Cot

Advanced Architecture

Seen from the end, Lite Cot’s advanced architecture is apparent. The press-fit DAC aluminum poles provide serious strength for minimal weight. The aircraft-grade aluminum flexes to create the tension that holds and supports the platform while providing the strength that gives this ultralight cot its 265lb load-bearing capacity. It’s an elegant, simple, award-winning design that delivers function with a clean aesthetic.
