If you’ve been hesitant to get into camping because of the high price of the gear, you’re not alone. Camping gear is among the most expensive to invest in—which is why we’re so excited about this REI Co-op Camp Bundle ($179; 25 percent off).
For less than the cost of most full-price sleeping bags, you get a two-person tent, a two-and-a-half-inch sleeping pad, and a 30-degree sleeping bag. The whole set weighs just over 12 pounds and has most of what you need to get into the woods. The Camp Dome 2 has two vestibules, a rain fly, a water-resistant floor, and interior mesh storage pockets for organization. The Camp Bed 2.5 sleeping pad is one of the more cushy pads on the market and has two and a half inches of padding and air to keep you comfy all night long. Last, the Siesta 30 sleeping bag is packed with polyester synthetic fill to keep you warm down to about 30 degrees Fahrenheit. The traditional rectangular shape is perfect for someone who isn’t quite ready for the confines of a mummy bag, and the zipper comes completely undone so you can use it as a quilt too.
This bundle, which is currently 25 percent off, is a perfect first investment if you’re looking to get a decent car-camping setup without dropping thousands of dollars.
