This Helinox Cot Will Help Keep You Warm in Your Cold-Weather Camp

Helinox addresses the Achilles heel of cots with its newest product. It made this cot for winter camping.

Cots are a comfortable choice for campouts but with one weak point: They’re cold. Sleep in a wall-tent in a hunting camp, and the guy in the cot will quite likely be the first one up to stoke the fire.


That’s because, with no insulation in the suspension material and sleeping bag insulation compressed under your body, you get a pretty direct connection to the outside temp. Many campers use an insulated sleeping pad on their cots to overcome this problem.

But now Helinox offers a built-in solution.

Cot One Convertible Insulated

The Cot One Convertible Insulated ($450, but $200 for the cot pad only), integrates a self-inflating pad (R-value 5) with the Helinox Cot One Convertible.

The new Cot One Convertible Insulated creates an all-in-one setup sure to provide a comfortable night’s sleep even when temperatures drop. The entire Cot One Convertible Insulated system weighs 6 pounds 10 ounces.


Users can purchase the insulated cot bed separately for those who already own Helinox’s popular Cot One Convertible.

So if you’re a hunting guide or other winter enthusiast who spends a lot of time on a cot in cold weather, this one is worth investigating. The Cot One Convertible Insulated is available now.
