    Am I to understand you want to take a cot on a sheep hunt? Wow! Have you tried one of the Big Agnes sleeping pads? I love mine and I can sleep on my side without having preasure points on my hips. If you need a cot though I would take a look at the light weight one that cabela's sells. It is under 3lbs! It will make your wallet lighter too but I will let you click on the picture to take a look at that

    Yup. Under 4 lbs for a cot is asking the impossible.

    The Voyager is 8 lbs, and a lighter/smaller cot would be tough to make.

    The Byers Trilite is about six pounds and not too expensive, about $80 iirc.

    Luxury Light makes a cot here http://www.luxurylite.com/cotindex.html

    I have used some of their other stuff and it is pretty high quality but I have not used the cot. It is a bit on the pricey side.

    Question

    In my opinion, I wouldn't suggest adding in a cot with all that you have to carry in for a sheep hunt.
    Pack light, get a meaty sheep, pack out heavy.

    Do you have back issues or just big on comfort?

    yep i bask on a luxurylite cot as well, first year i've tried it, worth the money, garunteed for life and hold up to 325 lbs, you can stand in the middle of it and it won't mess it up at all. easy set up, easy take down and nice to sleep on.
    I've weighed it as well its right at 3lbs with all the poles for a 325 dude.
