Best quality Tent cot?

I'm just after some feedback on tent cots, after years of using swags that tend to leak in decent rain i'm looking for something a bit more comfortable, the camp rites are ok but not waterproof so am looking for other options?

any suggestions welcome

I have a mate with the oztent jet tent bunker. I havent been inside it but it looks roomy and looks robust. He took it on our cape trip last year and I didnt hear any complaints. It does weight a bit though from memory. I personally use a 1 man tent now after 15 years of swagging it . Weighs 2kgs, survive a cyclone and plenty of room. Throw in a thermarest matress and im set. And you can set up just the fly when in the tropics.

Thanks Scubascott the Jet was/is on the top of my list and the main one I was after feedback on so thankyou for that I also have a lightweight single flyscreen tent for those 'roughing it' nights in summer and their great but just after something that can be all in one for longer 1-2 week camp trips and stay dry through foul weather that seems to follow me on those trips

thanks mate

I have a black wolf turbo 240, great tent at about $800-$1000. It keeps the water out, and if you want to get some decent pegs (even though a $1,000 tent should have great pegs) it will hold up against strong wind, too.

Cheers
Chris.
