Most folks know of the idea of Christmas in July. Well, if you're an Amazon Prime member, this is the perfect time to partake in Prime Day, Amazon's version of a snowless Christmas. Well, part of the deals you can find are aimed at the outdoor lifestyle, and if you've been looking for the perfect moment to spend as little money as possible, it's now. Ready the RV, truck, or good old Camry, and let's go!
Now, I've chosen to bring to light the sort of instruments you may want or even need if you're to start embarking on some outdoor adventures. This includes a few tents, some surfaces on which to rest tired bones, landlocked gear, and a few toys with which you can explore local watery surroundings.


Instant Tent

First up on the list of goodies I've run across sits an instant tent from Bushnell. Six, nine, or 12 persons can have a place to rest their heads after long or relaxing days outdoors. This three-season option starts at $300 but is essential for large families.

The next option here is from a name brand that most outdoor lovers know and respect, Coleman. The Dark Room Sundome tent is fit for four or six people and is a simple and affordable solution to getting you into the game now. Prices start at $74 and one penny.

Now, this next one is a bit different from your traditional tent. Actually, it's the more traditional version of where tents began, S'more's A-Base camping tent, a teepee tent that's great for couples and light enough not to break your back; it weighs 11 lbs.

Mattresses and Cots

Unless you're the sort of outdoorsman that likes sleeping on uneven and rocky ground, I recommend looking into a mattress or cot of sorts that's easy to carry and creates a flat surface on which you can sleep. Coleman's QuickBed is a $25 option for sleeping comfortably. It even has a built-in pump.

If you've got the leg or back strength to pump up your own mattress and not rely on a built-in system, for 21 American bones, Intex offers you a Dura-Beam air bed with a 300 lb capacity. A queen option, suitable for 600 lbs, is just $28!

Not into blowing your hot air into a mattress? How about an easy-to-unfold cot for quick and elevated sleeping? Coleman places the Trailhead II cot at your disposal for $42. Best of all, it reduces the chances of critters crawling all over your face as you rest; great for outdoor spaces or tent annexes.

Inflatable Kayaks and SUP Boards

After getting the rest you need, it's time to start exploring local waterways and lakes. To do that, the one-person Montana inflatable kayak from Airhead is yours for a solid $272, 27 lbs of watery fun to burn out your kid's endless energy source.

Then there's Sevylor QuickPak K5 inflatable kayak, showcasing a more sporty feel and going for a massively reduced price of $227. It's 25.5 lbs of multi-chambered goodness that sets up in five minutes. Get to it!

Since SUPs are making a big splash in the outdoor industry, I've chosen to bring to light one of the best-rated and affordable SUP boards around, SereneLife's board, a $200 piece of hardware with a 4.8 out of 5.0 rating from 22,558 current reviews.

Looking for something a tad more affordable? Aqua Plus has a board going for $170. It's available with all the extras needed to cruise around on local waters and can support up to 350 lbs of weight. Hop on in; the water is fine.

The final SUP on this list is that beautiful board from Dama, a toy going for $240 and ready to catch the eyes of anyone around, even you. Since it's also a Yoga board, that wood tone should chill you right out.

Ice Chests Coolers

The last type of gear I want to bring to light is nothing complicated but essential; coolers meant to keep your food and drinks in an edible state. Arctic Zone's ice chest with 20 qt capacity can fit 30 cans of your favorite juice, be it alcohol or not. $130 is what you need to dish out.

Then there's Igloo, showcasing a 25 qt ice chest cooler for no more than $70. built with blow-molded composites and equipped with friggin diamond plates, you can bet that any bear will have a hard time getting to your goodies.

Looking for something bigger? Igloo has the answer yet again, with a $91 52 qt ice chest built just like the 25 qt version. An insulated body and Cool Riser technology ensure heat transfer is kept at a minimum.

If you didn't know when and with what you should get into this year's camping season, this is a solid place to start. Even if you end up choosing one item from each category, with around $1,000, you're set. Just grab some food, drinks, and maybe a blanket, and enjoy. Got to love Christmas in July!
