Whether you love to enjoy nature at a plush modern campsite, or survive the elements on the side of a cold mountain, you know that finding the right camping gear can be a challenge.

Finding camping gear online lets you browse a wide selection of top quality camping brands in a variety of sizes, shapes, and quality. There's no need to drive across town to hunt through a limited selection of camping equipment with high markups. Instead, with just a few clicks of the mouse you can quickly find the tent, backpack, sleeping bag, cookware, shoes, and other camping gear that fits within your budget.

Backcountry

BACKCOUNTRY

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.

Return Policy:

You can return most items in new condition at any time

Paragon Sports provides a pinch of sporting equipment for just about any sport you can think of. They work with 300 name brands and have over 30,000 items in stock but that doesn't mean they'll have the camping gear you need.

Paragon Sports is committed to providing quality products but unfortunately is not an expert in camping gear. They seem to cater to the novice camper that doesn't really know what they need in the great outdoors or appreciate certain high quality brands over others. Paragon offers camping gear across only 5 or 6 brands in most of their lines of tents, sleeping bags, and more.

They had an ok selection of lower end tents and backpacks. The search functionality at Paragon is not complicated but we found their website to be slow and sluggish the several times we visited. We also found their customer service contacts to lack some specific camping gear knowledge we had grown to expect from the other companies.

Should you not be satisfied with your purchase Paragon allows for a 30 day return of unused, new products in the original packaging.

It seems that Paragon is the jack of all sporting good and a master of nothing. With a week selection, limited brands and an overall unimpressive camping gear experience we felt that you could find so much more at a higher ranked competitor.

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!
