Helinox High Cot
It’s like your bed, only better. The Helinox High Cot sits 15 inches off the ground and weights just 6.5 pounds — the lightest high cot on the market. Not only is it remarkably comfortable, with just the right amount of support and give, it’s also brilliantly engineered. It uses an innovative tension system to keep the weight (and volume) to a minimum, while still supporting up to 320 pounds.
Pro tip: While 6.5 pounds is incredibly lightweight for a high cot (which can weigh as much as 25 pounds), it’s still a tad heavy for extended treks. Save the Helinox for camping less than three miles in, and canoe (or kayak) trips. [$400; bigagnes.com]
