No obvious bad points.
Our test was based on the Australian and New Zealand standard AS/NZS 2195:1999 “Folding cots – Safety requirements”. We also tested against the breathability clause in the revised 2010 standard.
We check the folding mechanism, stability, that there are no entrapment hazards, sharp edges or points; that the mattress is firm enough and fits snugly; and that there are breathable zones at the sides and ends of the cot (in case a baby rolls face-first against the side or end).
We won’t recommend a portable cot if it has a major safety failure.
For ease of use, we assessed how easy it is to set up, pack and store the cot and its accessories.

It packs away nicely.
Our cot is extremely difficult to set up. It is frustratingly so - especially if you use it only infrequently.
I end up dripping with perspiration and cross when the joints simply refuse to click into place.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
