Camping season is almost here. And while savvy outdoor parents have already secured their sites for the summer, replacing gear and outfitting the kids often gets left until the last minute. Nobody ever realizes Junior outgrew his sleeping bag until he climbs into the day before the trip and it doesn’t fit. So any opportunity to get a jump start on restocking outdoor gear is a welcome one. Today’s one-day-only Marmot sale on Amazon is a good place to start. The 25-percent discount is solid, and there’s a nice mix of essentials ⏤ mostly sleeping bags, jackets, and rain gear, in addition to a lightweight tent ⏤ worth picking up now rather than full price later. Here are three pieces of camping gear you should check out.
Marmot Crane Creek Backpacking and Camping Tent
Whether your older kids are ready to graduate to their own tent, or you now have a small child in the mix, Marmot’s 2- or 3-person Crane Creek tent should do the trick. It weighs only 5.5lbs, has dual D-shaped doors for easy access, and is sold with or without a footprint.
Marmot Voyager Jr. 40 Kids’ Mummy Sleeping Bag
A mummy bag for kids under 5-feet tall, the 70D polyester Voyager Jr. is certified to 40 degrees, filled with SpiraFil high-loft insulation, and on sale for $20 off its everyday price.
PreCip Kids’ Lightweight Waterproof Rain Jacket
Because a wet camper is an unhappy camper, this lightweight polyester rain jacket for kids should keep everybody dry. It has an adjustable hood that rolls into the collar, is made of breathable NanoPro fabric, and comes in one of six colors.
