Over the years, Aldi has sold a variety of camping products, from tents and bedding to backpacks and accessories. While the quantity, timing, and the sourcing of the products can change from year to year, you can always expect the grocer to serve up a healthy dose of outdoor gear just in time to hammer in your stakes.

Here’s a roundup of the tents as well as the bedding. Keep in mind that all of these are Aldi Finds, which means that once they’re gone, you won’t see them again until next year.

Adventuridge 6-Person Tent

Product Code: 45173

Cost: $49.99

Manual: none online yet

Thoughts: Available in blue or green, this 10 feet by 8 feet tent has a center height of 72 inches, or about 6 feet, which makes it a full 14 inches taller in the center (and thus $10 more expensive) than the 2019 Aldi 10×8 tent. It’s advertised as a 6 person tent, although in our experience a tent of this size is probably better suited for 4 people, and even then only with a modest amount of gear. Like most tents of this type, it is a straightforward dome-style tent with a pin and ring system and a removable rain fly. Other features include a D-style door, an integrated mud mat, an E-port for electrical cords, and a mesh gear loft with lantern loop. It is advertised as water resistant, although we like applying tent sealer to tents before use. Fully packed, it weighs just under 14 pounds.

Adventuridge Cold Weather Hooded Sleeping Bag

Product Code: 700963

Cost: $14.99

Manual: none online yet

Thoughts: While we’ve seen Aldi sell traditional sleeping bags before, 2020 was the first year we saw a hooded sleeping bag. This one, available in blue or green, advertises itself as having a 47 °F comfort rating, a 38 °F comfort limit, and a 14 °F extreme rating. It measures 2 feet 8 inches across and 7 feet 7 inches long, and weighs about 3 1/2 pounds packed. It includes a sealable compression storage sack and an elastic strap for storage.

Adventuridge Ultralight Travel Hammock

Product Code: 800668

Cost: $12.99

Manual: none online yet

Thoughts: This looks very similar to the travel hammocks Aldi has sold in the past, which we’ve used with some success. It comes with two guy ropes with loops — each rope is 8 feet 2 inches long and has 13 different loops — as well as two steel carabiners and a carry bag. In our experience, this particular design is best for trees about 11-12 feet apart. It currently comes in three designs: pattern, green / orange, or blue / yellow.

Adventuridge Easy Fold Camping Cot

Product Code: 800700

Cost: $24.99

Manual: none online yet

Thoughts: Prior to 2020, Aldi sometimes sold camping cots, but they were large, heavy setups. This one is similar in dimensions to the old ones — about 74 inches long x 29.5 inches wide x 7.3 inches high — but it employs more Army-style feet, which makes it lighter. (Whether it’s easier to assemble, we’ll leave that to you to decide.) It comes in either blue or green and includes a carry bag.

Bestway Queen Air Bed with Pump

Product Code: 800442

Cost: $22.99

Manual: none online yet

Thoughts: In the past, Aldi has sold air mattresses under its own Adventuridge label, but in 2020 Aldi sold one under the Bestway brand, known for inflatable outdoor accessories. It measures 80 inches long, 60 inches wide, and 8.5 inches high, with a plush top. It sports a no-leak valve, a 661-pound weight capacity, and is suitable for indoor or outdoor use. It comes with both a storage bag and a battery-powered pump (batteries probably not included). This airbed is available in blue or green.

  1. We purchased the Adventuridge 6-Person Tent last year. I was so impressed that we went back for the quick pop-up cabin but it was already sold I. I’m holding out hope that the cabin makes a return this year.

    The Mummy bags and self-inflating pads were also great quality even with heavy use.

    I just bought the Adventuridge 6 man tent a couple of days ago. Set it up yesterday and when we work up today both polls were broke…??!t
