The Cedar Mesa Cot is Klymit’s first compact cot with the patent pending Easy Lever Lock system to make set up simple and easy. We have innovated a cot that is extremely comfortable, durable, and compact. We’ll walk you through the features that make this the ultimate choice of gear for those seeking a tent cot that allows you to sleep off the ground.


The intuitive design of the Cedar Mesa Cot ensures an accurate and easy set up. With the straightforward set up, you’ll spend more time enjoying sleeping off the ground and less time figuring out camp.

Our patent pending Easy Lever Lock system makes assembling and tensioning the cot simple and easy. Simply attach the legs of the cot to the poles after inserting to the canvas and push down. This will lock the lever in place to tension the cot for perfect comfort.


The Cedar Mesa cot features an aluminum trapezoid structure and unique oval profile tubing. These provide optimal strength and comfortable fabric tension for excellent support.

With the large, rounded feet of the cot legs, your tent floors will stay protected from rips and tears. These round feet will keep your cot firmly in place all night long so you can sleep peacefully.


Each cot has an easy to access gear pocket so you can store things while you rest. Store small accessories such as phones, wallets, flashlights and head lamps, and other gear.

The Collapse and Compact™ technology of our cot simplifies takedown. Seamlessly fold the durable, oversized cot with poles and legs into the storage case, similar to the size of a small briefcase, making this the perfect lightweight camping cot.


The Cedar Mesa Cot comes in 2 sizes, large and extra-large, to fit all body types. With 300D Ripstop PU Coated Polyester, these lighweight cots have a weight capacity of 400lbs. Each cot comes with a 2-year warranty so you can ensure that you will be covered for any manufacturing issues that may occur.

Interested in what others think of the Cedar Mesa Cot? Here’s a review we received from one pleased customer:

I’ve loved your product ever since I started my outdoor adventures about 4 years ago. Your sleeping pads have been on many camping trips and came in clutch on a 4-day camping kayaking trip. I love to nerd out over gear and the engineering behind it. And may I say you have absolutely outdone yourself with the Cedar Mesa Cot!

For over a year I have been planning my dream Utah camping trip which is scheduled for September. My husband is going. He doesn’t love camping - but he loves me 😌 so he is going. My task was to find him a cot so he could get decent sleep while camping for 10 days.

I have searched high and low for over a year to find a cot that was long enough and wide enough (he is tall!), but also light enough and compact enough to fit in the checked luggage for our flight.

YOU DID IT!!!! Your product was the only option I found. I am super excited about this new product and cannot wait to see how it does in Utah for my husband those 10 days.

It was just a relief to find a product that hit all the check marks. THANK YOU!! You always continue to impress me. Klymit will continue to be my adventure buddy on future endeavors! 💛"

Gear Junkie’s thoughts on the Cedar Mesa Cot as the “The Best Camping Cots of 2024” this past March (2024):

This spacious cot is perfect to throw in your tent, truck bed or by the bonfire for some cowboy camping action.

The Cedar Mesa Cot took less than 10 minutes to put together the first time. Assembly is decently simple due to Klymit’s patent-pending Easy Lock technology found on the crossbars. After mounting the side poles and legs to the crossbars, simply push down on each mechanism to lock it into place. This ensures the frame of the cot is secure without any unexpected wiggles or topples.
For being so lightweight and packable, this cot is super comfortable to sleep on. While the cot itself is pretty firm, the 300D polyester ripstop PU-backed fabric stretches just the right amount once you’re lying on top of it. Despite being elevated several inches off the ground, our tester stayed warm on it camping on a crisp Colorado mountain pass during the summer."
