With the Fourth of July weekend come and gone, the summer camping season is at its peak. If you haven’t dusted off the gear bins for the first time since last fall, get to it. You’ll want to know if some items aren’t as pristine as you thought you’d left them — and if there are any gaps in your camping kit that need filling with new gear. Now is the time to make amends. The holiday sales may be over, but if you look carefully you can still find great deals on all types of camping gear at retailers like REI, Backcountry and Mountain Steals that’ll ensure you’re well prepared for the rest of summer. Here are six sweet discounts to get you started.
Helinox Chair One Camp Chair
The Chair One has been our top pick camp chair for a while now. Why? Because it packs down small and light without sacrificing the comfort of adequate back support.
Mountain Hardwear Optic 3.5 Tent
Mountain Hardwear built the Optic for views — its two doors are perpendicular to each other instead of on opposite sides so that when you roll back the fly, you have a 180-degree sightline without leaving your sleeping bag.
Nemo Equipment Tensor Insulated Sleeping Pad
The Tensor is a three-inch cushioned barrier against the cold hard ground and a good night’s sleep in the outdoors. This version is insulated, so you can use it in spring and fall, and it packs down remarkably small.
Primus Profile Campground Stove
Eating at camp shouldn’t mean sacrificing meal quality. With two burners at your command, you can get more creative than pouring boiling water into a dehydrated meal packet.
BioLite HeadLamp 330
BioLite’s HeadLamp 330 is new this year. It has a full fabric band and a low-profile light, so it’s more comfortable than most headlamps and won’t slip during high-motion activities like running and hiking.
The North Face Campforter Sleeping Bag
This sleeping bag is extra roomy, like the bedding you’re used to at home. It’s also rated for 35 degrees, which makes it ideal for sleeping outside during the warmer summer months.
