Thanks for making a great product! Took my OD Green Go-Kot out to Yakima Training Center for a 10-day field exercise. Slept like a baby!
Dear Mr. Pete Smith,
Recently was going through some of my scouting gear and remembered that I had given my cots to my son and grandsons so they could use them on their Scout outings. Imagine that - these are the same cots you provided and we used when I was assistant scoutmaster with Black Warrior Council Jamboree Troop 459 that participated in the 1981 National Jamboree at Fort A. P. Hill, Virginia, over 30 years ago.
During our time there, we experienced a severe thunderstorm that tore tents from their moorings and generally wreaked havoc with our campsites. But the cots came through unscathed and because they kept the boys and their bedding off the wet ground, we were the envy of all the other troops around us.
The fact that the cots are still in use speaks volumes about the quality and longevity of your product. And I wholeheartedly recommend this product to anyone seeking a cot with outstanding features that's easy to transport and easy to assemble. Because they are made right here in the good old USA is just icing on the cake.
Other Customer Comments
We are very active, year round campers. We have four Go-Kots and believe that they are some of the best of our collection of top-shelf camping gear. I appreciate the excellent design and quality, AMERICAN- made manufacturing. These cots are designed to last for years- made apparent by their five year guarantee. They add a considerable level of comfort to our outdoor adventures and, when our choice of tent sites was not the best, kept us high and dry when our tent flooded. They are compact, easy to set up and knock down. The Go-Kot owner’s commitment to maintaining the American based manufacturing and customer satisfaction is another reason that I will continue to promote their product enthusiastically.

Your product is solidly quiet & comfortable to sleep on, sturdy and a snap to put together. I've recommended it to many & know I'll have it for many years to come.

Better than a &*%$^ air mattress that will fail! I am 6' 1", 210 lbs. and spending weeks in the field. Tired of wasting money on substitutes and cheap fixes! Awsome cot!

Go-Kot is the best camping cot I have ever slept on. It was easy to set up and take down. You can even do it in the dark!

I took a mission trip and used your cots. Almost as confortable as my bed! I donated them at the mission site so I will purchase again for sure. Just loved them.

Purchased for a Boy Scout trip. Easy to set up & not too heavy compared to bigger cots. Used a 2" self-inflated pad and got a great night's sleep. It made a little noise when I moved around. You need to rub a little bar soap on the side bars and the noise is gone.
I gave my scout son the cot and ordered another. I'm 6'1" and 225 and it held up great!

This cot is US made and while hard to find from retailers online it can always be ordered directly from the manufacturer. When I ordered directly from them all colors were in stock and shipped the same day. So give a search for the manufacturer site if you can't find anyone else stocking it. Worth going out of your way to get.
I love this cot in every way imaginable. The design is simple, durable and supremely functional. This thing packs up small (Look for the videos online showing assembly and packing). So much so I've read many motorcycle campers use them. It is not light enough fo take backpacking (as far as I'm concerned) but at around 9 lbs. and its small packed size it is great for small vehicle camping.
For tent use be advised you may want to add padding (small sections of rubber hose recommended) to the legs where they contact the tent floor.
The design has no crossbars at all. The legs are the crossbars and the clever design keeps it tensioned when you lay on it. The lack of crossbars means the sleeping surface is completely uniform from toes to head and this means even a tall sleeper can use the standard cot. I'm 6' 1" and I'm using the standard size which is only 6'2". For most cots that wouldn't work at all, but for this cot it works great and you can even cofortably let your feet hang a bit over the edge if you choose.
I've got the moss green, which is a nice muted green color. There is a wide variety of colors available.
There is also a slightly less expensive and lighter version called the E-Kot which uses four instead of six leg sections and uses 600 rather than 1000 denier fabric.

When it comes to camping gear, I have made some good buying decisions as well as some poor ones. This cot ranks right up there as one of the best outdoor products I have ever purchased. Bought my first back in the late 80's and another one a few years later. After years of use and dozens of trips both of them are still as sturdy as the day I bought them. My cots have been to Alaska, Northern Ontario and the BWCAW and have never failed to make my night's sleep in the great outdoors more comfortable. The cot is relatively light (don't know if I would use it on a backpacking expedition) and is very compact when stowed. I weigh around 210 pounds and am 6-feet tall and this cot holds my weight very well. AWSOME product! Getcha one!

Go-Kot still great after 28 years!
I got my GO-KOT in 1984. It is the best camping gear investment I've ever made. It was only $65 or $70 back then, but that's inflation. Anyway, it's worth it for a good night's sleep so I can enjoy the next day when out in the wilderness.
It's too heavy for backpacking, but for car camping or kayaking it's unbeatable. It's easy to set up and comfortable. Even more so if you put a pad on top.
My GO-KOT has given me a good night's sleep for weeks at a time camping all over the world. Now my kids use it when they have friends over. I just ordered two more so they can have their own. My old one has only four legs. The new ones have six. That seems to be the only difference. The design, material and construction quality just can't be beat.

You guys have the best tent cots made. We use them all summer!
I've had my G0-Kot for 26 years. I got it in Scouts and it has been all over the world with me. I took it as far away as Australia. I have slept on it many hundreds of nights and is still in great shape. The one I have was made when they only put four legs on it instead of the six the new ones have now, and it holds up great. The canvas is in great shape still. There are not many products of this quality made any more. My 9-year old was able to tear it down with no help or instructions. Best cot ever!
We went camping this weekend and used our new cots for the first time. They were great. It felt like we were sleeping in our beds. Didn't get up all stiff and sore in the morning and didn't keep waking in the night trying to find a comfortable position to sleep in. Set up and take down were very simple even inside of a tent. We placed cardboard under the legs and that worked well. We'll be getting the hose pieces next. Thanks again for a great product and just wanted to let you know it's great to find a place that makes a quality product. We really are impressed!
WOW! This is amazing! I received the replacement covers ion Saturday, just 4 days after sending you my info. What a delight in dealing with a company with such fantastic customer response. Thank you and keep up the good work!
I recently purchased a Go-Kot from your company. The phone person was friendly and even called me back with the tracking number. The Go-Kot was so easy to assemble and the quality of the materials were the best. The combination of the quality USA manufacturing and the friendly southern customer service makes me want to tell all my friends about you! As a matter of fact, a good friend told me about your company.

By the way, I have ordered two more cots since first using one vigorously in the wilds of Mongolia this summer. The Go-Kot handled the tough conditions like a real pro. I wish I could say the same about a new pair of boots I had purchased for the trip. FYI, I am 6' 4", 200 lbs, and the regular size works just fine and fits well in a three-person tent, or Mongolian gher.
My family and I love our Go-Kots and use them frequently as guest beds at home and away. We'll never travel without them! Thanks for making such a great product in the USA!
Thanks for your quick shipment of my regular Go-Kot. The cot is very well made and easy to assemble. I also appreciate that is was made in the USA.

Just received your original Go-Kot. The quality and size are perfect for motorcycle camping and at the age of 52 not having to sleep on the ground after a long day of riding is just what the doctor ordered. Great product! You should advertise on motorcycle websites. I'm sure the cot would be a hit!
By the way, I used those cots on RAGBRAI (bike across Iowa) and they worked like a charm. My new favorite camping item!

I've received my Go-Kot and end kit - thank you! The product is geat, and it's exactly what I needed for bicycle touring.
Thanks again for everything!
So you have some customer feedback for purchasing a cot from Go-Kot. The two main reasons why I picked Go-Kot for a cot are because of the design which includes using the best materials plus the cot is made in the USA. My admiration for your company staying true and keeping the work in the USA. It is almost impossible to do that these days but I'm glad your company has gone in that direction. Thank you!
