We Went Camping with a $140 Kit from Walmart | Outside

Looking for budget camping gear? Here’s a review of a DIY camping kit you can get at Walmart for only $140 for all your outdoor needs.

When your budget is low, it may be hard to select gear that will suit your needs. Outside editor Emily Reed went to Walmart and bought a tent, sleep system, and cooking kit to spend a night under the stars. All for only $140! Although the quality isn’t the best, this gear kit will get you outdoors to enjoy the experience with a small dent in the bank.

    Great video, thanks for it. Contrary to the collectivist statists commenting on here, I am glad we have market choices that lead to lower cost products and above average pay for a retail market. Not to mention the employment that happens along the chain.

    Excellent video Emily…! Very informative. Nice easy casual camping – not backpacking or bushcrafting or surviving the apocalypse – doesn’t need to be expensive. The items you chose will serve the average fair-weather camper very well and let them upgrade over time if they want to. Great job, Emily! Very well done.

    The only downside is a lot of that stuff going to be maybe one to two uses before it starts breaking down I’ve tried that and trust me it’s worth it to spend a little bit of extra money and get quality products that you can use year after year

    Water and food???? Hello?

    Last Line of Defense this week’s ago. Come on.

    How about you not shop at this anti-union behemoth? Also, if possible, let’s avoid the automated checkouts.

  7. stricklandsports on May 16, 2020 at 4:25 pm

    I believe I saw where you purchased a butane stove yet purchased propane fuel. Was the stove multi-fuel or did it come with a butane cartridge?

    You didn’t need that giant air mattress too heavy and bulky to carry on a camping trip. I have one smaller and light weight to carry with and doesn’t take up a lot of room but for food and other item’s.

    LOL at the comments. Emily is trying to get a point across to anyone willing. I would be careful with using the self checkouts as Walmart in Kentucky and Arkansas have found skimmers attached to the ones in those aisles.

    Everything will be $175 ($140 x 25% tariff) next few weeks. #MAGA #TRUMP2020

  11. Sean Davis on May 16, 2020 at 4:35 pm

    Lol at everyone angry because of Walmart

  12. Ramona Boston on May 16, 2020 at 4:38 pm

    After reading the comments perhaps a follow-up with other places to find inexpensive gear?

    Wrong fuel for that stove.

    Love El Rito and Northern New Mexico camping. Hope you stopped at Farolito for some green chile!

    Είσαι τόσο άσχετη που απορώ! Θα κάψεις κόσμο με τις συμβουλές σου.

  18. J Ko on May 16, 2020 at 5:04 pm

    My tarp poles alone are more than $140…

  19. Shane on May 16, 2020 at 5:04 pm
