Walmart: Ventura 9 Piece Family Camp Combo $97.94

Posted by on June 25, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Walmart: Ventura 9 Piece Family Camp Combo $97.94

If you are looking to spend sometime under the stars this summer, take a peek at this Ventura 9 Piece Family Camp Combo at Walmart, a great deal at $97.94!

This camping set comes with everything you need to enjoy a good night sleep in the great outdoors this summer. In addition to the 6 person tent, it also comes with 1 sun shade, 2 adult sleeping bags, 2 travel sized pillows & 2 folding chairs.  The sleeping bags are rated for -45 degrees. Like all tents, it also comes with a rain fly (partial) that allows for better ventilation and movement of air inside tent.

The 6 person tent is ample room for a family of 4-5 with room for storage and is rain resistant, always a plus just in case. The manufacturer has recommended 2 people to assemble or disassemble.

Although I haven’t personally used this tent, at this price if you were to get two seasons out of it, then it was money well spent.

One item that is included that I think you could put to good use outside the campgrounds is the sun shade. If you coach soccer or if your child plays soccer, you know how hot it can get on the sidelines. I’ve noticed more and more of these popping up at the local soccer pitches and I think its a great idea. It keeps the sun off the players and gives them a common area to congregate.

Another spot I think the sun shade could come in handy is the beach. Its always nice to be able to create a little bit of shade when your planning on spending the day by the surf.

The majority of the reviews on this product are very positive, like this one:

Bought this as a Father’s Day gift for my husband. He took our son camping and loved it. Tent was bigger than expected!

As always, Walmart offers free shipping with no minimum required.

Walmart Canada: Jack Wolfskin Yosemite II Tent On Clearance – Now $195 (Was $300)

Posted by on June 16, 2014 at 9:08 PM

Walmart Canada: Jack Wolfskin Yosemite II Tent On Clearance – Now $195 (Was $300)

Here is your chance to scoop up a great deal on a 2-person Jack Wolfskin tent at Walmart Canada! While supplies last, this Jack Wolfskin Yosemite II Tent was originally priced at $300 and is now only $195.

This two-door, entry level tent is a great beginners tent. My husband and I started camping many years ago with a tent very similar to this. Of course as our family grew, so did our shelter, however our 2-person tent saw us through many trips to Algonquin, the east coast and various provincial and KOA style campgrounds.

Two features these tents offer that I feel you want to consider when shopping for a smaller 2-3 person shelter are storage pockets on the inside and a semi-shelter at the front.  Although these are not necessarily must-haves, these features make a huge difference when you are talking about drastically reducing the amount of living space you will be acclimatizing yourself to, even for a couple of nights. Small tents such as these don’t offer a whole lot of space for gear etc., on the inside, and therefore you won’t have ready access to your pack or storage bins especially late at night. So depending on where you’ve decided to camp,  having a few inside pouches to store flashlights and other small necessities that you will want to easily access from inside make a difference.

Also, I’ve always found that having a small privacy screen just outside your tent allows you to store a few more items close to “home” but not necessarily inside the tent. Again, you will need to take into consideration where you are camping and base what you leave in your tent or within arms reach on what wildlife resides nearby, however my husband and I would leave our footwear in this area and we also found this little fly provided just the right amount of privacy when getting changed that we could open up the tent door in the morning or at bedtime without feeling exposed.

Although I was unable to find very many price comparisons, you can see that Walmart Canada’s price is a steal compared to the same model found at La Cordée where the regular price is $349.99.

Walmart Canada is also offering two other Jack Wolfskin tents on clearance. If you are looking for a roomier tent they are offering the same style but in a 3-person format for only

Amazon Canada: Highland Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Only $84 (Was $157)

Posted by on April 21, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Amazon Canada: Highland Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Only $84 (Was $157)

I found this deal for a Highland Hitch mounted cargo carrier interesting because this is something my husband wants for the back of our van. It was $157.32, now $84.

This item is a super handy item for people who need extra cargo space on their vehicle. My mom has one on the back of her truck, and uses it to store items for when they go camping or on holiday. There are also boxes you can get that are made to go on this cargo carrier, to make it easier to cart items. Our van is usually over-full when we go on vacation and we can’t store too much at the back because we need all the seats up with three kids and a dog in tow. Once we put in two coolers and two suitcases we are pretty much full. This would give us a little extra room for more supplies.

You’ll need a hitch on your vehicle to install this and it has a 500-pound capacity. It bolts together in minutes so anyone can do it. The platform is 60 inches x 20 inches x 2.5 inches with an expanded metal deck. It also includes convenient tie-down points for keeping all your gear in place. The heavy duty steel construction also means it will last for a long time.

I tried to price compare but couldn’t find this item at any other Canadian retailer. I found a few in the States, which were higher than the price here, so I’d say this is a good deal.

Shipping will be free as well.

Well.ca: Save 20% On Coghlans Camping Products

Get yourself ready for camping with all the little essentials you’ll need for 20% off at Well.ca.

Decided to take on the wild world of camping? Good for you! I actually love camping, except for the bugs, the bad weather and the lack of a proper washroom. I do love the living in nature part. When I camp, I need to be prepared with a ton of items, not just pack a backpack and hope for the best. No back country for me!

I like items like this camp cooker, that toasts sandwiches and other items over the fire. Not much more satisfying than watching your food char (or burn, whatever floats your boat) over an open fire. Was $19.99, now $15.99.

An electric air pump is also a must-have considering I can’t sleep on the hard ground. Seriously, now. Was $15.99, now $12.79.

The picnic combo pack gives you a tablecloth and clamps to keep your tablecloth down, because it would suck to watch your tablecloth wave in the wind from the top of the tree down the way. Was $9.99, now $7.99.

Shipping is free when you spend $25.

Amazon Canada: 25% Off Camp Kitchen Camping Gear

Get 25% off Camp Kitchen camping gear at Amazon Canada right now.

I love camping, but I am not a camper. I’d rather have someone put everything up for me and I’d like it to be cleaner. I guess you could call that a cottager. Unfortunately, I don’t have a cottage or the funds for one, so officially, I am a camper. If you are also a camper and just starting off, you are definitely going to need some supplies.

The most important (ok, maybe not most important) item is the beverage cooler. This Igloo MaxCold beverage cooler is great for holding your clean water and has an easy pour spigot, so even your kids get their own drinks, this time anyway. It will keep your beverages cold for five days and is now only $49.97, regularly $76.99.

In case the water wasn’t enough, store your drinks in this Igloo Legend cooler with a 24-can capacity. You could also store food in here, but that’s your choice. Now only $29.51, regularly $43.99.

Your priorities might be a tad different than mine, so check out the sale for yourself and see what else you might need.

Bargainmoosers, what camping equipment do you think is most important?

Amazon Canada: ALPS Moutaineering Backpacking Tent $130 Off

Amazon Canada: ALPS Moutaineering Backpacking Tent $130 Off

Amazon Canada has an awesome tent for sale for only $191.64, regularly $319.99. The ALPS Mountaineering 5423619 Vertex 4 Backpacking tent is now $130 off.

This tent, in green and rust colours, has great reviews online. Seen as a quality four-person tent for under $200, its only drawback is that it could be a little heavy.

With a free-standing two-pole design, a polyester fly that resists UV damage so it stays taut, and maximum weather protection with a factory-sealed fly and floor seams, this is a durable tent.

There are two doors with mesh zippered windows and two vestibules. It offers easy entry, superb ventilation and total protection from the elements.

It’s also easy to put up, with pole clips that quickly snap over the tent poles.

This item has free shipping.

Parents Canada: $10 For 4 Packs of Deet-Free Mosquito Repellent Patches

Parents Canada: $10 For 4 Packs of Deet Free Mosquito Repellent Patches

Mosquito season is upon us and we need to be extra careful protecting ourselves these days with the West Nile Virus around. But, for me, DEET is not really an option, even though I do have fond memories of choking for ten minutes after being sprayed all over with bug spray as a kid. For only $10, you’ll get four packs of deet-free mosquito repellent patches for kids and adults, a $36 value.

You’ll simply have to place the patch on your family’s clothing and it will protect from mosquito bites for up to 72 hours. It really is that easy. There are six patches in each package, so you’ll get 24 patches for only $10. This is one deal I am going to take advantage of immediately. What’s great is that kids will think it is a sticker and they won’t fight you on putting it on.

You can purchase unlimited vouchers and they expire within six months of purchase.

Shipping is included!

Costco Canada: $70 Off Porta Gaz 3 Way Portable Gas Cooler (Now $299)

Get ready for camping and backyard entertaining with this portable gas cooler, now only $299.99, regularly $369.99 at Costco Canada.

One thing I despise about camping is constant trips to get ice for the cooler, sometimes even twice a day. To make matters worse, I wonder about the food quality, if it stayed cool enough to be safe. Also, when the ice melts and all your items are floating in the water, it just doesn’t seem right to me. This cooler is a great solution to all those problems.

It is a three-way portable cooler, where you choose how you want to power it. You can use either a 12V DC vehicle’s auxiliary socket, a 120 V AC power supply or LP gas. So depending what you are using the cooler for, this cooler is versatile and can literally go anywhere.

With a 37 quart capacity, you can fit quite a bit in it for all your camping, day trip, and BBQ needs. It stores 48 12oz cans if you are using it just for drinks.

It has all the bells and whistles for safe and effective operation including all cords and adaptors. The magnetic seal and tie down rings make sure it closes and stays closed, so your food stays cool.

Shipping is included.
