Plus, the first 2 females in the door Friday will receive the new Go Girl FUD! Ladies, find your freedom and Go Girl here! Sweet! My wife would LOVE one of these!

You know you want to travel lighter but still not sacrifice quality!


We still have a handful of awesome Hilleberg tents on sale here, used in good, fair and poor condition, and priced accordingly.


If you're not familiar with these incredible tents, check them out at:



For tents in good condition, we have the:




Nallo 2

Keron 3 GT

Keron 4 GT



we have nearly every model in lesser condition, too. Hilleberg is based in Redmond and is happy to help you with any repairs necessary.


We also have a new BD Skylight single wall tent and ground sheet for 40% off!


In-store purchases only, please. We're open 10 to 6 Monday through Friday.
