Roll-O-Cot should design their own tent who's poles engage into the frame of the cot. Bug screen floor could Velcro under cot(s).

If Roll-O-Cot isn't interested perhaps Big Agnes would like to take a run at it.

Door on the side please. Until that happens I'll keep my bivi-sack handy if it rains.

They can send me a prototype to demo and I'll check it out for free.

Why does Pluto walk on all fours, drink from a dog bowl, and get treated like...a dog, while Goofy drives a car, wears clothing, and speaks in English?

Still, waaay more comfortable than my pacos and roll-a-cot, perhaps even more than when I combine the two. Though, the height of the cot is better than being on the ground.

Yeah, I have a bum knee, and kneeling is a PITA, but I need to go small & light for kayak touring. The hammock is my favorite way to sleep if I'm not on my roll-a-cot in my Big Ass (Big Agnes) 4 man=1 gal & cot & gear tent. Kind of hard to find trees for the hammock while paddling at Lake Powell I got a Sierra Designs Lightning tent and the Exped Synmat medium/wide. It has the built in pump that's ok, but not perfect. Kind of like two minutes of CPR on your pad. Then I got the schnozzel bag, and bingo, problem solved. Four bags full of air squeezed in while sitting comfortably in my camp chair and.....voila, it's ready for bed.

I have a hammock as well, only been able to use it on MF, Selway and main trips, and then, only for naps. It weighs less than a pound, so cool to have for a layover.

I hear that regarding bum knees. That said, you'll be very comfy with the pad. Great product.

Where did you find the spare set of legs for $20?

Have you already ordered replacement legs? If so, did you get both complete set of legs or just one leg unit for $20? Thanks!
