Can you build the Weekender kit Cheaper yourself?
We went on a recent shopping trip to our local drug, mass discount and sporting goods store to find out.

Time:  What's your time worth?  It took us three-and-a-half hours driving to and shopping in four different stores.  And we couldn't find everything included in this kit.

Money:  You save an average $12 of the retail cost of this kit by taking advantage of our bulk purchasing discounts.

Bottom Line:  Save yourself the hassle, time, and money.  We're done all the research, organization, and purchasing to provide you with the easiest route to be prepared for your next adventure!  It's our life!  That's why we are The Choice of Outdoor Professionals Worldwide!
