When I saw Therm-A-Rest named this cot the UltraLite Cot, it got me thinking about how even though the word "ultra-light" can be applied to so many different things, the actual weight measurement representing it for one item can easily translate to the complete opposite for another. For example, a bike that weighs 13 or 14 pounds would probably be considered ultra-light, but what if the 14-pounder were a newborn baby? Even I wince in pain at the thought of a lady having to carry around and pop out a porker like that.

The Therm-A-Rest UltraLite Cot here weighs in at 2 pounds, and claims to be the lightest cot on the market. Impressive. And, I'll agree, ultra-light. (Not the case if it were a nose ring.) It also packs down to an equally impressively compact size for transport. The cot features a BowFrame design, which Therm-A-Rest reports significantly increases user comfort since it eliminates crossbars and creaky cot joints. The stretch-free cover is made of waterproof nylon and the frame anodized aluminum poles with lightweight nylon feet. Assembly follows the same light and easy protocol, and requires no tools.
