  Good Idea!

If you are sleeping off the ground, you don't need the same type of protection from below as when sleeping ON the ground. Just bring a couple small tarps to set your gear on, and wrap the tarp edges up onto the packs if any water runs across the ground. If I were to use a cot (and I won't ever), I'd use the old style Baker tent. Canvas versions are nice, but pricey. Cooke's Custom Sewing makes a nylon version that's more in line with the cost of typical modern tents, and it's also very light. I think they might be more well known as "campfire tents" (but don't put your fire nearby if the tent is nylon).
