We've managed to locate one of the last supplies of 1950s era Bulgarian Army Cots which came from one of our European partners. These Bulgarian military cots are true relics from the Cold War with both manufacturing and design characteristics that evoke the era perfectly.
Bulgarian Army Cot
One of the most interesting aspects of military surplus is to see how various governments met the sleeping needs of their armed forces. Virtually all armed forces during the cold war issued some type of cot or field bed. The designs of each government cot can tell a lot about the beliefs, with the Soviet influenced designs being the most robust and over-engineered.
This Bulgarian Army Cot is definitely influenced by the Soviet designs of the Cold War era. The use of both wood and canvas, with steel hinges is characteristic of the Soviet designs of the time. By using these robost materials, the cot that has been produced tends to be significantly stronger and capable of supporting far more weight than cots made by NATO aligned armed forces. When we set one of these Bulgarian cots up to test, we were blown away by how much weight it held without showing any signs of stress or bending.
