It’s perfective for lounging in the afternoon sun with a book in hand. By night, however, the Converta Cot folds down flat, giving you a soft, supportive surface for sleeping. The cot fits conveniently inside your tent for a sleeping bag snooze or sits in the backyard for a mid-day nap. The Converta Cot is well built, with a strong powder-coated steel frame and a weather- and mildew-resistant fabric that won’t stretch or lose it is shape over time. And at 76 by 11.5 by 25 inches (W x H x D), the cot comfortably sleeps persons up to 6 feet 2 inches tall. The Converta Cot supports up to 225 pounds and weighs 11.6 pounds by itself.
In the ensuing years, Coleman expanded it is product line well beyond lanterns. The company’s current catalog is thick with merchandise that make spending time outdoors a pleasure. There are coolers that keep feed and drinks cold for days on end, comfortable airbeds that won’t deflate for the duration of the night, a finish line of LED lights that last for years, powerful portable grills that cook with an authentic open-grill flame, and much, much more. Coleman has genuinely fashioned much of our outdoor camping experience, and expects to do so for generations to come.

When I picked these cots and ordered some for my family I was thinking we could take these to the camp ground and use them to lounge / enjoy the day if we so choose and then they could get double duty locked into the horizontal position to sleep on.
Another nice bonus when I pulled them out of the box my wife immediately said she wanted to use them out back at home too because, unlike most chaise lounges, they do not have the “straps that leave marks on your butt.” And when we’re camping, the elevation keeps us off the cold ground (and associated condensation!) in addition to lump-free comfort.
We also all agree the width is ideal, at least if you’re going to be in a sleeping bag anyway. It’s obviously not in the same ballpark as airbeds (which have pros and cons both of their own), but if you could doze off on a typical couch without hanging off the long edge then the width of this cot should suit you fine. The problem with going wider is it becomes exponentially more difficult to transport and quickly dominates your tent (if it fits at all). This gets to be an issue of personal preference very quickly but after seeing some other reviews I was worried it would be unusually narrow but this is a pretty standard cot or chaise lounge width and I am quite happy with the size around 175 (5’10).
Speaking of transport, I was also impressed with how small these fold up. The “foot” and “head” sections both fold parallel to (and against) the center section and then the section that might want to flip outward when carried has 2 velcro straps that secure it. This means you can easily carry the folded cot with 1 hand without fear of it transforming unexpectedly onto your foot or innocent bystanders. That said, when you want to set it up you just undo the velcro and the whole thing swings open in seconds. There are no sliding parts to bind up and “fight back” the way some camping chairs do.
If you are a big & tall customer, or a backpacker, this cot is not going to be a good camping choice for you. It is a very manageable weight if you want to carry a couple between your car and your site but you will not want to try to walk around with this all day along with a tent and the rest of your kit.
The only con to this item, and I don’t even care that much about it, is the fabric sometimes makes a noise when you re-situate yourself on it. It’s not a big deal, and I suspect it might even go away over time, but if you’re the sort to be irritated by a noisy seat you might care more than I do.
Hopefully this is all you need to know. Please click Yes if this is helpful, otherwise feel free to leave a comment with any questions!

Note that they tell you what the frame is made of – STEEL.
The problem is the fabric. All they say is moisture and mildew resistant. They do not saw what exactly it is!
IT IS PLASTIC. Woven plastic, but still plastic.
I looked on the back to read the tag to see what kind of plastic, but all it had was a California warning saying it contained chemicals that cause cancer.
I hate plastic. The cot stunk like a new shower curtain. It is going back.
If it was a decent canvas I would have kept it.
What were cots made up before they had plastic?
