Cover All The Camping Basics With Tribe Provisions {PLUS The Ultimate Camping GIVEAWAY!!!}

Tribal cover

The weather and the rain is finally starting to let up here in West Virginia! My son, Elijah, has been begging to go camping again since Christmas time, and this year I wanted to take our camping experience to the next level. I found an amazing outdoor company, Tribe Provisions (who provided the items pictured above at no cost to facilitate this review) and quickly discovered, when it comes to camping, they've got me more than covered on all the basics! I grew up running around my Grandparents home in the mountains of Pennsylvania (we lovingly call it "The Farm") and this same place has become an oasis in the busyness of life for my own family and children. I'm always looking for opportunities to break away from the week and take the kids to enjoy these wonderful mountains. They have quickly grown to love it just as much as I do and The Farm has now become our go-to camping site. On our first camping adventure of the season, we took some friends along to enjoy the fun - and they also enjoyed everything Tribe Provisions had to offer!

Our family is lucky enough to have a Grandfather who has built an awesome camping cabin which makes it even easier to just grab our gear and head to the woods! It's not big enough to hold much more than our family so our great friends were eager to test out the Adventure Tent! They don't lie when they say it's easy to set up! In typical "man style" our friend Tommy didn't even look for the instructions but had the tent up in no time!

 I was quite impressed with the "toughness" of the tent stakes in particular. Much more easy to put in the ground and remove than the typical metal stakes I've used in the past. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that this tent has two openings on each side making it easy for both campers to get in and out without having to walk or crawl through the tent and the extra hook at the top is another favorite. It's great to be able to hang an lantern from the top of the tent and not have to search for your stuff in the night with just flashlights. Having the "screen" material all the way around the tent keeps the air moving on those hot summer nights and I really appreciate that Tribe Provisions took the extra time to put in a few screened panels inside the tent to store all the important things! Having the storage pocket on the top of the tent is genius! A great place to keep your cellphone or tablet up and away from anything wet!

 If you are into camping and hiking this is the perfect lightweight tent to take along on your adventure! Who knew material this light could also be this durable! My friends slept all though the night and woke up dry (probably THE most important thing to look for in a great tent)! It's as easy to disassemble as it is to put up! Don't just take my word for it, here's what my friends, husband and wife, Tommy and Chris had to say about their experience sleeping in the Tribe Provisions Adventure Tent II:
We highly recommended this tent! My husband and I slept comfortably as it is very spacious. We even put the rain tarp on wrong and still woke up completely dry - no moisture whatsoever! - Chris

This Adventure Chair from Tribe Provisions truly is the best seat in the house when it comes to camping! Everyone in our family from the oldest to the youngest, tallest to the smallest used this chair and loved it. When I first pulled the chair out of its carrying pouch my friend Chris remarked, "Wait! Did you just pull that entire chair out of that little pouch!?" Amazingly portable this chair was so easy to set up and break down that we used it around the cabin, sitting around the campfire, (and had it not started to rain) we were excited to take it with us fishing as well.

 Putting it together took just seconds because the chair legs come already attached to their base with an elastic chord, (similar to the way tent poles go together) which also ensures I don't lose any of its components! Before I sat down, I had a hard time believing that something so light with fabric so thin was going to be able to hold me. Not only did it hold me, but it proved to be the most comfortable seat on our trip. My daughter, Mariyah couldn't get enough of it and my other kids loved the comfort of this chair instead of our usual logs around the campfire.

 There's nothing about this chair that doesn't amaze me! It even has an extra pocket on the side to hold something small like your cell phone! Lightweight, comfortable, easy to put together, every camper needs to own one of these!

Our family will never go on any wilderness adventure without this hammock from Tribe Provisions! Seriously, even when we're just headed up to the farm for the day, this baby is coming with us! How great is this hammock you ask? Well, let's just say, all of the kids spent more time relaxing in this hammock than any other activity. My oldest daughter Mariyah absolutely would not let me pack it up when it was time to go, until the very last minute! The hammock and tree straps were the very last of our camping gear to get loaded in our van!

I swore I was going to spend the night sleeping in it, but the kids didn't want to be alone in the cabin at night. The next morning, I was wishing all the more that I'd stuck to my original plan because the more I used this hammock, the more I realized sleeping in the woods doesn't get much more comfortable than this! I have been impressed with every material that Tribe Provisions has used to create their products and this hammock was no exception! Super lightweight, brightly colored, and holds weight miraculously! I have some pretty hefty boots (pictured above) and there was no worry that the material would be torn. I'm telling you -amazingly durable!

Though you can use this hammock without purchasing the tree straps I have to say it's totally worth the investment to include them in your hammock purchase. Using the Tribe Provision Tree Straps made setting the hammock up and taking it down a very simple process and also provided additional support for the hammock. With the tree straps, my own kids could set this hammock up themselves.

 The pocket that hangs down from the side of the hammock is actually the bag that the hammock stuffs right back into for storage. It's also perfect for holding a few small simple items like a cell phone or small flashlight should you choose to utilize your hammock as your sleeping preference on your next overnight camping trip. There is so much fabric to this hammock, ensuring that it will fit people of all shapes and sizes! I have a pretty small 5 ft. frame and there was even enough material that I could have wrapped the extra hammock material around me and been completely encased in hammock heaven! Even as I'm sitting here typing up this review, my son, Elijah (pictured above in the hammock) caught a picture out of the corner of his eye and remarked "Ahh the hammock. I love that hammock Mom. It was my favorite part of our whole camping trip"We're planning on heading to "The Farm" again this weekend, the verdict is still out on whether we will officially be "camping" this time, but camping or no camping, there will be definitely be "hammocking"!
