I've never heard of the Endless Match.

I always learn from you.
They're pretty cheesy and usually cheap. But all they need to do is work once and your butt is saved. They won't last forever (like any ferro rod won't), but for an emergency kit, a $4 firestarter is a good investment.

Weight rating of 350? You got to be pushing that. I note you said "when I sat up this morning". So most of your weight (however much that is) was concentrated on one point of the cot, essentially through your backside. I could see that ripping a seam. Sucks though. They don't really make them for heavy people, which is funny, as it is usually heavy people (people who would have more trouble getting up from the ground) that want camping cots. Maybe you could attach some webbing straps at key stress-points of the cot to prevent all the weight from being born by the seams in those areas?

Your ripped and replacement cots don't look like their oversized model that has a weight rating of 350 lbs.

They look more like their normal cots which have a weight rating for 300 lbs,

You didn't mention they were oversized and corrected yourself on "king size" in the videos.

I'd say 260 is pushing 300, especially with a directed "bottom weight".

Glad the new one worked out for you.

I recall a rather famous criminal trial where the phrase "If it does not fit, you must acquit" came from.

Still not convinced? Here's a [redacted] screenshot of the original order (herein referred to as Exhibit "B"):

And with your permission, counselor, I'd like to enter the following into evidence (herein referred to as Exhibit "C"): A [redacted] scan of the packing slip for the replacement.

Those are my closing arguments. The defense rests, Your Honor.
