Get Outside With These Great Deals
This piece was written by the Cracked Shop to tell you about products that are being sold there.
Before we know it, summer will be gone, and we'll all be relegated back into our lonely little hobbit holes until we can safely mingle among the centrally heated once more. Basically, you better take advantage while you can. Fortunately for you, we've rounded up some of the best deals on the web on all the summer gear you need to hit the trail. Check it out:
Nothing says "the closest to relaxation anyone can get right now" like a hammock. The perfect portable, lightweight hammock for your tropical escape or simulation thereof, this mesh creation is less than $20 now.
If the rugged wilderness is more your style, this tough nylon hammock is for you. It folds up for easy transport and is more durable than mesh ones, making it ideal for the only real getaway that's likely within your reach.
If you'd rather not stray any further than necessary from your cozy nest, this hand-dyed, 100% natural cotton hammock will look great on a deck or out in the backyard. It's so soft, it's basically a couch that sways gently in the breeze.
This one is kind of cheating since it's not only a hammock but also a tent. String this baby up between a few trees in the woods and you have an elevated place to get some shelter and rest, because camping doesn't have to mean touching the gross ground.
Love being outside but don't love the outside being on you? This large 65" x 59" pop-up tent will protect you and a friend from the summer sun while giving you a comfortable place to lie on the beach so you can wallow in nature, but not, like, too much.
If you long for the open road but don't trust roadside motels in even the best of times, split the difference with this pop-up cabin that attaches to your car's hatchback, creating an outdoor extension of your car that's big enough to play games, sleep, or whatever else you need. It definitely beats sleeping in your car.
This extra-large, 25L backpack has a number of purposeful pockets, including an insulated cooler pocket, and even has an RFID-lined pocket to store sensitive material. If there's two things you never wanna be caught without, it's ID and snacks.
They say you should never hit the links without beer. Really, you should never hit the links without cold beer. Be the hero of any outdoor outing by keeping this cooler stocked, and maybe earn yourself a cool nickname in the process. If you get to pick, we suggest Grubermeister.
If you prefer a little more snazz with your libation-cooling technology, this cooler bag will keep your stuff cold and allow you to color-coordinate with the homies.
Start a fire anywhere with QuickFire(R)! These lightweight canisters have enough oomph to light a fireplace, a camp fire, or a charcoal grill in just a minute, because rubbing two sticks together is for Boy Scouts and '30s train-hoppers.
Now that you've got your cold beer and your hot dogs, where do you put them? On the ground? There's bugs down there! Use this collapsible cooler and table set instead. Just because you're communing with nature doesn't mean you have to share with it.
