Tent for cot
Posted by: Waterbird on Feb-27-13 9:39 PM (EST) Category: Other Gear
Since there was a discussion about cot camping, I thought I would ask if anyone can recommend a good tent to use with a cot. Height for a 15" high cot needs to be at least 50". A four-person tent would be overkill for me, unless it were unusually small.
My recommendations are the Mountain Hardwear Corners 3 and the Alps Mountaineering Hybrid CE 3. Like most tents, they each have their drawbacks.

Big Agnes Lynx Pass 3|

Bought it on sale for $150 or so. My Roll-A-Cot along with a large pad goes in it with room for a lot of gear. It's supposedly a three man, but you know how that goes. I typically just set up the fly and poles, but I still have enough room when I use the tent as well.

of 46". There are many similar 3Ps. I'm looking for 50" minimum.
Oopsie. Sorry bout that.|

You specifically said fifty inch minimum and I scanned right past it.

I mentioned this tent as a floor-less option in that other thread, but I didn't remember its proper name.

While I have camped with some using them, no one has brought a cot.
I thought about that slope factor ...|

I'd actually LOVE to have a true campfire tent for car camping, ideally a canvas one so the fire could actually be put a few feet beyond the doorway fly, but the cost puts it too far into luxury territory for me. But if I car-camped a whole lot more than I do, I might think differently about the cost.
