Camping equipment has really improved over the years in quality, weight and size factors making your trip that much more enjoyable. Hikers can carry well designed light weight packs, cooking kitchens and compression dry sacks made just for the out doorman.
You have many factors to consider when purchasing Camping Gear. First what type of camping are you going to be doing, tent, wilderness, backpacking, winter are just a few. Another thing to look at if you are going to wilderness or backpacking, is the weight. Remember you have to carry it.
Good quality camping gear does not have to be expensive. There are many places where you can purchase discount camping gear. Discount camping gear can be found on the Internet, where websites have many name brand products at discounted prices. You can also find discount camping gear at your local sporting goods shop, especially during the winter months where camping becomes less popular. Catalogs will also have discount camping gear available. However, if you do purchase any discount camping gear through the Internet or catalog, be aware of shipping costs.
Sleeping bags are the convenient and they will keep you warm, but they can actually be too warm. To warm is better then cold; you can always uncover to cool off.
Spend sometime in you camping store looking at all the different camping equipment.
Think, what type of camping am I going to be doing, and how
often, then buy what will meet those requirements.
