I am so very excited to bring you this backyard camping post with Backcountry today! I think it’s because I feel extremely proud of myself that I was able to find a tent that is cute, very easy to set up, and sleeps our whole family. Our girls have been begging to go camping ever since they know what camping! We often hike with the girls but we have yet to brave spending the night with them in the wild.
I have been telling the girls the entire time we’ve been building the house that once we got moved in we would get a tent and do a camping test run in the backyard. Honestly, they were so excited just to set up the tent and play board games that I think I have totally gotten out of having to take them camping for the time being which means Zach and I will get to enjoy camping with our friends!
To be honest what intimidates me the most about taking the girls camping is lugging gear and having to set up the camp site. If the process is as easy as setting up our new tent from Backcountry then sign me up! We literally unpackaged it and had it set up in 5 minutes and that’s with reading the directions! Things have changed a lot since the last time I went camping that is for sure!
When it came time to pick out a tent I automatically turned to Backcountry because it’s where I order all of our outdoor gear from but also because Backcountry makes ordering things that intimidate you effortless. Not only do they offer at incredible selection with excellent reviews but their gearheads are available 24/7 via call, email or chat and can answer any and all questions related to your outdoor needs. Did I mention that they are former athletes, outdoor guides and even Olympians? Add free 2-day shipping on all US orders over $50 and naturally I stocked up on a few additions to our outdoor summer wardrobes as well.
Luckily for you, Backcountry is having a huge Memorial Day Sale so you can score a ton of hiking and camping gear on major discount right now. Highly recommend checking it out! Be sure to use CRISTIN15 for 15% off your first order at Backcountry! (exclusions apply)
Backyard Camping Gear and Essentials
I’ve linked everything we are wearing in this post below and if you want to see more of my favorite products from Backcountry you can check out this post, this post, or this post.
Patagonia Long Sleeve Tee // This tee is a little thicker and feels almost like a really thin sweatshirt. It would be great for chilly camp sites or evenings at the beach! I’m in a medium.
Alo Yoga Leggings // I am obsessed with these leggings! They are 7/8 length which are full-length on me. They are high-waisted and comfortable. I’m in a medium.
Men’s Lightweight Shorts // Zach wants about 5 more pair of these. He is wearing an XL.
Backcountry Long-sleeve Tee // Another item that Zach has requested a duplicate of. Great for hiking, riding the boat or just hanging out in the summers! He is in an XL.
Girls’ Nike Dry Tempo Shorts // This is legit all our girls wear in the summer!
Blue Patagonia Shirt // How cute is this tee?! Scottie is in an 4T so I would say it runs a little big!
Grey Patagonia Shirt // I love this rainbow tee so much I want to order it for both of them! Hayden is wearing an XS.
Marmot 4-Person Tent // Again, cannot say enough good things about this tent! So easy to set up, so much room inside and all 5-start reviews. Go read more about it here.
Sunnylife Towel // This isn’t necessarily camping related but this towel was too cute to pass up!
Patagonia Women’s Backpack // Somehow I always end up carrying EVERYTHING so I bought myself a new backpack and I love it!!
