MSR – Luxury Lite Mesh Cot

Introduced during OR Summer Market, MSR’s Thermarest brand is offering the Luxury Lite Mesh Cot. I just tried this sample out during an industry get together courtesy of Open Range. It’s very cool. The longest component is 12″ and it can be broken down for carriage or stowage.

As you can see, it gets you just off the ground but the design flexes to support your body. Definitely beats sleeping in the dirt.

The mesh cover is lightweight and available in a variety of colors. Lengthwise, it is supported by 2 shock corded poles. It is suspended off of the ground via 12 circular nylon feet which accept aluminum poles that arch for tension to keep everything taught. It’s a real slick set up. What amazes me is how compact and light it is. It’s under 3 lbs complete. This is how big it is stowed.

    How much weight can it support and what length does it come in? It looks like a great design.

      Per the Thermarest web site:

      Width 66 cm / 26 in
      Length 183 cm / 72 in
      Packed Size 43 x 15 cm / 16 x 6 in
      Height 11 cm / 4.5 in
      Packed Weight 1740 g / 3 lbs 12 oz
      Minimum Weight 1400 g / 3 lbs
      Capacity 158.8 kg (350 lbs) MAX LOAD
      Country of Origin Made in Seattle, USA

      Looks like those over 6 foot tall need not apply . . . .

    We had a 360 lbs guy on it. And another guy that is 6’1″.

  3. Ryan says:

    Well I am way under the weight limit at least. How much room did the 6’1″ guy have left I am 6’4″ . I have a cot but it is way to heavy to actually drag into the bush unless I’m deploying from the back of a truck. Something like this combine with my Big Agnes air mattress would likely make for a good sleep.

    Thermarest web page has a good how to video. The photos above appear to be different to what is offered by Thermarest. The one above only has one spar between the nylon feet vs the two twisted spars on the Thermarest version.
