I have the two leg version and am 6'4" and about 230#. Works well for me.

I’m 6’ 3” and I have a few off the 2 leg, wide version. My brothers are 6’6” and 6’7” and exceed the weight limit. They never complained when using my cots on Hells Canyon and they never broke either.

I had difficulty deciding which model to buy too when I was about to buy my first. I finally went with the 2 leg version because one of the big advantages of using cots on rivers is sleeping on uneven ground. I have set my cots up on rocky river banks, you have to move some rocks around to get the 2 legs level but it’s doable. Another common scenario is setting the cot up on a slope. I add some rocks under the downhill leg until the cot is level. Each leg on the cot has two feet that touch the ground, so usually it’s a matter of leveling out 2-3 feet to get the cot level. If you have a 3 legged roll a cot, now you have to level 4-5 feet to get your cot level. That’s a lot more work.

Problems arise when "doubling the capacity"
Hilarity ensues!

I have the 3 leg cot and really like it. It's a little heavier, but a great cot. I'd pick it again.

I'm 5'3" and weigh 115 lbs. Do you think the 3 legged one would be beefy enough for me?

Camp Time sells a set of legs separately.

I have the two leg set on my roll a cot and weigh in about 200 lbs

my bet is the two leg model would handle your weight of 115 lbs like a champ

My wife and I have doubled the #%*^ out of our cots so hard the tent shaked. I’m 190. She’s 120. Cot never even squeaked.

Thanks everyone for the input. I bought the two legged, wide version from Camptime. After my MF trip, I'll try to remember to post a comparison between the Camp Time and the REI cot I mentioned way earlier in this post. The REI one is much cheaper and easier to setup, but heavier and given the number of rivets I suspect won't last as long (although I already have 40+ days on it). I'll have both with me on the trip.
