The Price of Quality 
Does buying more expensive stuff mean that you're getting better quality camping equipment? I recently had a debate with my brother on this after he told me that he spent about $500 for a sleeping bag. He told me that it would eventually come out cheaper in the long run because he won't have to change it as often. Does he have a point, or am I just being too much of a Scrooge?

Absolutely not! I've been able to found a lot of really great quality stuff without spending so much for them. It does take a bit of looking around and checking, but then again, isn't that what forums like these are for?

Alban's right. Some of the best deals I've gotten were from yard sales that I happen to find every now and then.

Re: The Price of Quality 
LOL I am still using the one my Dad bought me over 40 years ago when we camped as a family! Although I have had to patch the flannel liner a few times. It is the old fashioned rectangle bags not these new mummy bags. When the temp drops I sleep inside all toasty and warm. When it's hot I am on the outside. I'm sure Dad did NOT spend $500 on it! Make sure it is a sub-zero bag if u camp in the Fall or Winter.
