An ultralight camping bed stretcher and  lounger offering superior comfort & strength.

Are you tired of having to carry heavy & uncomfortable stretchers when you go camping?

Are you tired of having to fight to assemble and break down such stretchers?

Are you tired of inflatable mattresses that deflate in the middle of the night or get punctured?

Desert Fox were.

Over a period of 2 years they developed the EZ Sleep camping bed with the sole focus on gear that simply works.

Simple, robust and comfortable.

The way it should be.

  • Minimal  joins in the frame structure for reliability.
  • Specially tempered aircraft grade aluminium which is self supporting (no plastic braces required) for additional durability.
  • Class leading anodized 16 mm tubing with stainless steel hardware (other designs have 8 mm tubing and plastic supports).
  • Weighs slightly over 3 kg
