Here is the list of gear. It is meant for both myself and my wife, so I doubled up in some places. (Links where I have them)

u/Grinch420 · 3 pointsr/camping POW $12 INSTA WATER PROOF.. but seriously, i wouldnt bother trying to fix a 15 year old poorly rated tent when you could get a new one for $50 that is better:

Ok... my geology field trips would have been an entirely different experience without booze and other recreational activities. I don't recommend it. My undergraduate geology degree and 6-week summer field were almost exclusively desert camping, with some high mountains (10k+ feet in the Sierra's and Mt. San Jacinto Peak). Sure, there was the occasional hangover, but it was worth the experience. I remember getting absolutely plastered in Bishop CA with my professor and class, then hiking up a Moraine at Convict Lake with the worst hangover of my entire life. WORTH IT!!!

Just drink a ton of water while you are hiking. I had a 3-liter camelbak with side pouches carrying another 2 1-liter nalgene bottles, and there were times I'd empty it all in a day of mapping and hiking. That was summer so you won't be evaporating as much, but the air is still dry so you still need to keep hydrated.

I don't think you should have to worry about an expensive 4-season tent, despite the winter desert camping. Sure, the temperature might drop below freezing, but a decent sleeping bag (I'd go with one rated to 0-degrees F) should more than make up for it. The one thing with desert camping is you want a tent that holds down well under a heavy wind. Nothing worse than coming back to your camp and having your tent blown away (never happened to me, but happened to a friend). I would recommend a nice small tent that is easy to set up in the dark (happened a lot to my classes). I have an older iteration of this tent and it has been perfect. Easy to set up, sturdy, repacks easily, doesn't take up much room, and cheap!! For comfort, I'd also suggest a cheap air mattress. They are way more comfortable than pads, and will make a big difference in getting you off the cold hard ground.

You'll start out cold in the mornings, so a decent jacket is a good idea. I used to have a nice windbreaker shell and layer it with a hoodie that I could take off as hiking started warming me up. By the same token I liked convertible pants that I could open up at the knees as I started getting hot and sweating.

Outside of that, I picked up a cheap hammer loop for my rockhammer, but had to adjust it so it didn't slap against my knee while hiking. There is a cool way to make an easy map board using a few pieces of plexiglass, duct tape, and bulldog clips, message me if you are interested.

Have fun! I definitely miss those days!!!

Have you been tent camping before? This may seem like the cheapest way to go, but if you don't already have your camping equipment already this can be an expensive way to go.

Using amazon:

  • 2 person tent $45
  • 2 sleeping bags $44
  • battery powered lanterns $15
  • 48 pack batteries $12 (that may be too many but you don't want to buy too few)
  • single burner stove $25
  • tank of propane $10 (burner is kind of useless without it)
  • coffee percolator $12
  • Camping cookware $18
  • camping tableware set $28

    I'm leaving some stuff out, but you're looking at about another $209 added to the cost of staying at Fort Wilderness.

    Let's not forget that if you aren't sure about being comfortable with tent camping, It rains like you've rarely ever seen every day in Florida. Usually for short periods of time, but are you willing to tent camp in a tropical rainstorm over night?

    I am a huge advocate of Fort Wilderness. I've loved the place since my parents took me there as a child (with a pull behind RV) in the mid 1970's. I suggest you go to the Chip and Dale Campfire Sing-A-Long, and Movies Under The Stars while you are there. If you can afford it go to the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue as well. However, tent camping in Florida is quite different than tent camping anywhere else. Maybe wait a little longer until you can afford to stay at one of the All-Star resorts.

1.) Something that is grey.

2.) Something reminiscent of rain. It always rains when I go camping

3.) Something food related that is unusual. Tiramisu wafer cookies. Better than sex.

4.) Something on your list that is for someone other than yourself. I have a whole wishlist for other people. My boyfriend, gramdma, mom, dad, and little brother.

5.) A book you should read! Clearly. You should have read these already because they are the best books evar.

6.) An item that is less than a dollar, including shipping Not on my wishlist

7.) Something related to cats Leopards are big cats.

8.) Something that is not useful, but so beautiful you must have it.

9.) A movie everyone should watch at least once in their life. Because it's the best trilogy of all time.

10.) Something that would be useful when the zombies attack. To whack them in the head and the use the pick to smash their brains out. And it's foldable so it will fit in a backpack.

11.) Something that would have a profound impact on your life and help you to achieve your current goals. I'm a student and I practically live in the library most of the school year. I need a laptop because the computers at school are SO outdated.

12.) One of those pesky Add-On items.

13.) The most expensive thing on your list. Your dream item. PS4! I need this because I love to game and I really, really need Kingdom Hearts 3. Like really.

14.) Something bigger than a bread box.

15.) Something smaller than a golf ball.

16.) Something that smells wonderful. This is the BEST SCENT EVER. It smells like marshmallows, fire burning, and vanilla.

18.) Something that would be helpful for going back to school.

19.) Something related to your current obsession, whatever that may be. Harry Potter is always an obsession.

[20.) Something that is just so amazing and awe-inspiring that I simply must see it. ]()

[Anything that has my real name on it.]()

Anything made in Oregon. This is a bit of a stretch but bear with me. The Bourne Triology preceeds The Bournce Legacy. Which starred Edward Norton who also starred in Fight Club. A movie based off the book who was written by none other than Chuck Palahniuk who is from Oregon & resides there.

I'll be back to finish this!

u/elixerboi · 2 pointsr/motocamping

Ditto on the 2-man tent size for space/storage.

If you're looking for the cheap road, some redditors have had success with [this].. I haven't used it so I can't say.

For slightly more expensive, I went with [this] instead also partly because I like the Coleman brand and think they produce quality stuff. It survives wind, cold, hot, rain (though I try to never camp in the rain anyways :P), etc.

For something you're going to use very often or need additional ruggedness, there are other brands to consider as well!

u/cwcoleman · 2 pointsr/CampingandHiking

What is your budget?
Are you shopping in the USA or abroad?
To confirm - you are not backpacking, right?
Any other features you desire?
Can you explain the 'dry entry' further? Have you seen an example of what you are talking about?

Generally - a basic Coleman Sundome tent is enough for most budget minded car campers. They will keep you dry and are semi-quality.

u/thatguyron · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

Ok cool thanks for the info! It helps us help you better. Before I start, I want to stress that the most important part about going ultralight is the mindset of being wise about what you're bringing and what you leave behind rather than a specific weight. This also comes with experience to a certain extent as you learn what gear you really do need and rely on, and what gear you bring with you but never take out of your pack. I get into a bit of a technical gear discussion below but let's not forget the most important thing is that I'm really excited that you're going to the Grand Canyon in the winter, and I really wish you the best on your trip. I've been a couple times in the winter and it's definitely my favorite time to be there.

So it sounds like you need a tent, sleeping bags, and backpacks? I'm praying you have sleeping pads already as well as appropriate clothing, shoes, cooking gear, etc.

Running on that assumption, here's my 2 cents:

On the tent front, the one you have already according to google weighs 16 pounds so I can definitely see why you want something lighter! In fact, with that tent really any backpacking tent you can get at any price point will be a huge improvement. The REI offerings at around $150 are not bad, but with the other gear I mentioned that I'm assuming you need, you can't really afford the $150 tents with your budget. You'll get the most bang for your buck with something like this coleman tent, which is not ultralight by any means, but at 5 pounds is still 11 points lighter than your current tent, and if one of you carries the poles and the other the tent, you're basically carrying about 2.5 pounds each, which is not too terrible. There are a few other options around the $40 price point and weighing around 5 pounds so you can google around and read some reviews. When I was just starting out I used a tent in that price and weight range and there's really nothing to complain about other than it's not quite as light as something that costs 5x as much.

Are your sleeping bags the rectangular kind that just roll up? If so, yes pretty much any stuffable mummy bag will be a big improvement. I was at the Grand Canyon last January so I remember how cold it gets both at the top and at the bottom in the winter. The selection of what temperature rated bag you want partially depends on how warm or cold the two of you tend to run, so unfortunately I can't say specifically how warm of a bag you want, but maybe something rated roughly around 20 degrees might be a good idea? Worst case you can always wear more layers inside the bag if you're cold but you don't want the bag to be horrendously mismatched to the actual conditions. Since you're on a budget you can probably just get any of the REI offerings that are around $100 and are in the appropriate temperature range for you.

So far we've spent $240 and so there is $260 left for backpacks. That's $130 each. Unfortunately the really nice lightweight backpacking backpacks (like the ULA circuit, Osprey Exos 58, or Z-packs arc blast) tend to run roughly in the $200-250 range each, but it looks like from the REI website you do have some options under $130. For backpacks it's important to try them on so I recommend going to the store and seeing which ones fit your bodies the best.

I hope this was useful and feel free to ask any followup questions. Remember, the

Coleman tents are fairly decent for the price range, although i think the smallest they do is a 2 man tent ( ), however a 2 man tent would be ideal for 1 person if you want a bit of breathing room/ space for your bag/other equipment.

on the other hand, if you are looking for something super compact and lightweight for backpacking there are fairly decent too:

u/fa1921 · 1 pointr/camping

I was able to get this tent for $35 free shipping on special two weeks ago. I used it last weekend on another island camping trip and it worked very well, great mild-hot weather tent. It seems to be about $44 right now, but still a good deal for it. It is one of the easiest tents I have ever put up and it folds up nice in a carry bag.

Thanks for the contest! I hope you have an easy pregnancy :)

u/dubflip · 1 pointr/Coachella

I highly recommend buying your stuff in advance. You can buy a tent a walmart (and follow holylamma's advice), but buying ahead of time gives you peace of mind and tents should be cheaper.

I doubt walmart can beat this decent tent for $45:

and while we are at it, I've never seen a $15 tent:

I'm not specifically recommending either of these tents; I'm just trying to say buying ahead seems safer. Plus most tents come in their own bag with handles.

As far as supplies go, the local Walmart isn't at risk of selling out of much other than tents and sleeping bags.

u/theg33k · 0 pointsr/Ultralight

For that price you won't be getting ultralight on the big 3: backpack, sleeping bag, and tent. Unfortunately those are the largest, heaviest, and most difficult to go light weight on a budget. The majority of the other items are pretty good UL gear. You can, for example, get a lighter titanium stove. It'll save you about 2oz and double the cost. Eventually the 2oz there and a few more oz here and there on a number of pieces of gear really add up so you may want to swap it out as you upgrade your gear over time. But for right now one in the price/weight range I suggested is really good ultra light weight bang for your buck.

  1. Alice Backpack $35 -- Watch some youtube videos on how to strap your tent/sleeping bag/sleeping pad to the pack safely and securely. Alternatively buy a used backpack off Craigslist for dirt cheap. This is the third thing I'd upgrade, once you have a lighter/smaller sleeping bag and tent.
  2. Slumberjack 40 degree sleeping bag $98 -- Upgrade to down-filled rather than synthetic if you can, also make sure it's temperature appropriate for your trips. This is the first place I'd personally choose to upgrade.
  3. Coleman Sundome $36 -- Any name brand dome tent is great for beginners. I picked a 2-person since you don't seem to know what you're doing (not an insult) I assume you'll be bringing a buddy! This is the 2nd thing I'd personally choose to upgrade to something that compacts down small enough to fit inside my backpack.
  4. MSR Pocket Rocket butane stove $32 -- Not the greatest or the absolute lightest, but one of the more popular light weight stoves. A can of fuel is $5 at Wal-Mart or pretty much any sporting goods store.
  5. Primus Litech 10oz kettle $25-- From this kit you really just want the pot and lid. You can leave the pan at home. According to the ad it is big enough to hold the 230g sized butane cannister previously mentioned. I suggest either eating things that require no cooking or just boiling water like any number of Mountain House or alternative meals available in the sporting goods section of Wal-Mart or any sporting goods store.
  6. Stansport Back Packing Pad $10 -- One of the simplest items to upgrade, but "nicer" ones are $30-100+.
  7. Titanium Spork $9 -- The only cookware you'll need for most those backpacking freeze-dried meals where you just add hot water and eat out of the pouch.
  8. 4-pack of ponchos $4 -- These are stupid small and light. They're shit quality and rip easy so they're mostly one time use.. but at $1/ea you can pack one per day, who cares? Nice rain gear is hella expensive.
  9. Base Layer -- If you don't already own it, buy some polyester/spandex "athletic" under-shirts and pants. They're stupid light, wick away your sweat, and add lots of warmth per ounce and cubic inch of pack space. I picked up a random set from Ross yesterday (bottoms and short sleeve top) for $20 combined. Generally speaking, avoid cotton for all clothing.
  10. Rip-Stop/hiking/tactical pants $40/pair -- I can't pick these out for you because sizing/style preference, but the fairly cheap ones are about that price per pair.
  11. AMK First Aid Kit $23 -- This is likely way more than you need and you could probably put together a decent one in a zip-loc baggy with stuff you have around the house. Don't forget to add any prescriptions you have or anything for special needs (allergies).
  12. Survival Whistle $6 -- You can find cheaper ones at Wal-Mart maybe...
  13. Signal Mirror $8 -- A woman's "compact" makeup mirror could get you this for free
  14. Aquamira water treatment drops $14 -- You may also prefer iodine tablets or a filter. You can get a basic Sawyer filter from Wal-Mart for about $25.

    That totals out at $365 and covers most of your bases of things you'll need to buy. Most everything else is going to be like soap, toothbrush, etc. which I'm assuming you already have. I really like the HikeLight 3-day camping checklist. You won't be able to get most (any?) of the gear on this list at your price range, but just make sure you have a comparable replacement. Yours will likely just be bigger and/or heavier than their suggested ones.

    Happy backpacking!
