My wife and I are both very outgoing person and we love going nature hunting. Like today, its been 4 days of non stop rain here in Mt. Makiling in the Philippines and both me and my wife have been hiding inside our tent to stay warm and dry. It is the rainy season here and thinking of this lousy weather makes me thankful that we have great camping gears to get us through.
Every camper I met has one or 2 complaints about sleeping through the night. It may be because of temperature or because they sleep uncomfortably through the night.
I am lucky that I got the best car camping cot which is elevated away from the ground. This way, I have comfortable sleep, away from the cold ground, away from insects or ground bugs, away from critters and I am well protected from rain and heat.
There are many camping cots out there in the market. Trust me, I have tried many and bought a bunch but I only have a few that I can recommend. But before that, I need to teach you what you need to consider before purchasing a camping cot.
