A cot light enough to take backpacking? You decide. At 2.6 lbs, the Cot Lite is a lightweight and comfortable option for backcountry travelers looking for more support than a pad but who also require enough remaining room in their pack for other essentials. 

The Helinox Lite Cot packs a full 185 cm (6 foot) camp cot in just 1260 g (2.78 lbs packed weight). The Lite Cot features a custom DAC aluminum frame for great comfort and support, and self-locating shock cord technology for easy assembly. The Lite Cot can even be used with three supports for extreme weight-saving situations. Sleep well, anywhere, with the Helinox Lite Cot.


Tension up for the best night's sleep


The ever-present problem with camp cots is how to tension the bed surface without adding bulky cross bars or braces.


Helinox's unique 'lever lock' tensioning system solves this problem without adding extra weight. 

  • One side of each leg features a pivoting lever.
  • The top side of each lever engages with the side frame of the stretcher.
  • The lever is then compressed and locked into place.
  • For disassembly, the silver side tabs are depressed to release the lever.

The mechanical leverage of this mechanism provides great tension to the bed surface – no cross bars or braces needed.

Cot leg is incompatible with the product. (Only available to use as low version.)
