Swedish Military Surplus Stretcher Cot, Like New is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by dix2111 from not at all like new,broken and smells badI guess my header says it all. There are lots of handling and storage damage. I bought one that was unacceptable and exchanged it for one that was worse. The fabric is sticky and very smelly. It smells like a waterproofing chemical sprayed on the fabric is chemically breaking down.(I know that smell) One of the buckles is missing the backing and cannot be used. The fabric on the second one I received can not be installed squarely on the frame and caused the item to not sit flat on the ground. It is cheap enough so Im not mad but I wish the description was accurate. I'm sure it hasn't been used in combat ( because Swedish) but it has been kicked around a warehouse for a long time. I'm going to return one and keep the other because the box is only big enough for one and I've already wasted too much time on this but not happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RedM from Follow on useful info...I am still happy with this purchase. Maybe the next customer will find this info useful. After getting everything laid out for assembly, I am still amazed at the sturdy quality. I would suggest that the next buyer give themselves a few minutes to consider how this cot goes together. The heavy canvas has built in heavy duty belt like adjusters that form to the frame. These are nice thick leather belt-like straps. There are also heavy duty canvas web support straps that are intelligently made. For example, mine had canvas tips that were dipped in a hard rubbery green sealant, obviously designed to keep the ends from fraying. There was a military preservative smell, but I like the smell of weapons oil, so this was good to go with me. The only thing that I feel ;like I will follow up on, it the folding frame ends. They buckle inward, which seems to contradict the purpose. But a hardwood splice across with some screw type hose clamps would make it a Cadillac, Thanks SG, and keep the great stuff coming.
