Backcountry

BACKCOUNTRY Visit Site

Return Policy:

Unlimited Return Policy

Backcountry is the rough and rugged campers website with tons of selection across numerous high quality brands. Backcountry started their company with the intent of catering to adventure seekers. We felt it was an interesting coincidence that their website was also an adventure.

Off the bat we had to take a step back from the Backcountry website and gain our composure. Perhaps it really was designed for those seeking an adventure and not expecting a smooth, painless ride. Setting aside their impressive selection we couldn't quiet get over the search functionality and literally felt a little motion sickness when the initial results appeared. Can you say "overwhelming"?

Again, Backcountry doesn't joke around with their selection across large named brands such as North Face, Kelty, Sierra Designs, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear, and many more.

Should you not be satisfied Backcountry will accept your return, new or used, with no questions asked. This is an impressive policy and would allow for many to feel comfortable in their purchase.

Clearly Backcountry has a website redesign opportunity if they want to cater to many customers that require a quiet, well organized shopping experience without an upset stomach. However, if you are looking for camping gear you are likely to find some of the finest offerings at Backcountry - if you are able to deal with the lay out and not run out in a hurry. With an extremely flexible return policy there's little risk shopping from Backcountry.

Moosejaw

MOOSEJAW Visit Site

Return Policy:

You can return most items in new condition at any time

Moosejaw is a website geared toward selling camping and outdoor gear. The tone of the website attempts to humor the reader but we had a tough time not getting annoyed the more we read. I guess we appreciated the attempt at humor but felt it went to far for most over 30 years old.

Another word for Moosejaw, besides "annoying", is "expensive". The website says they offer a price match guarantee within 24 hours of purchase but we felt that could be a hassle to provide proof that they were charging their customers 10 to 25% more than much of the competition. Why bother if you don't have to?

Moosejaw does offer a wide selection of camping gear and we thought it was too bad they missed the mark with writing and price. They do a great job of offering an endless satisfaction guarantee but it seems so broad we had a tough time believing all customers would interpret the true meaning of the return policy. Thankfully shipping is free on orders over $48.95 because again, the prices were on the steep side on the many products we checked and compared.

Overall, the website functionality was good, the layout was good, product and brand selection was strong but Moosejaw doesn't take the customer serious enough. We want good prices without the hassle and we want to be appreciated. We recommend you shop from a higher ranked website that puts the customer higher on the list of importance.

Even better, it will arrive at your doorstep with no hassle. A number of camping stores exist online today that can meet all your camping needs. However, not all camping stores provide the same experience. Before buying any camping gear online you should consider the following:

  • Selection. Does the camping store offer a wide selection of camping gear from various quality brand names?
  • Prices. How do the camping gear prices compare with other camping stores?
  • Return Policy. Does the camping gear company enable you to return their products for a full refund?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Camping Gear stores available today. We hope these reviews help you find all the camping equipment that meets your camping needs!
