While buying camping equipment, do not only look upon costs. You may land with a bad surprise during your camp. The pleasure of camping gets erased by little things like that. Therefore, focus on getting those big name outdoor gear brands.
One of the worst parts of the getting back from the trip is to clean the equipment used. Clothing, footwear, cutlery, kitchen tools, camping tarps, stakes, zipper, sleeping airbags, shoes, stores that you take with you and so on.
It is hard on everyone, but there is no other way than to take care of: remember always that the equipment you have to buy expensive, and even more expensive to buy a replacement.
So get to it, and begin to put things back in order.
Once you are back from your camping trip, make sure that you layout the camping gear out in the sun for some time; if there are some places that are dirty, clean it with a good mild detergent, and put them to dry. Otherwise, the equipment will smell and rot will set in. And it would put paid to your expensive equipment.
Check out my sleeping bag, and after them inside out, leaving them in the sun for them to dry quickly. Check the straps holding the hood. Replace them require replacement. Do scringe at a small cost in replacing them.
