For far too long, most hikers, backpackers, and campers have had to decide between functional equipment that’s kind of ugly or very nice outdoor stuff that leaks, rips, crumbles and ends up spoiling your time in nature. But it doesn’t have to be that way anymore. That’s because two of our favorite stores have just come together to create a collection of camping gear that’s both ultra-functional and ultra-stylish. It’s the new REI Co-op + West Elm Collection, and it has everything you need for a relaxing night under the stars and around a campfire.
For some people, having a comfortable place to sleep at night is something they don’t want to give up, and that means there are people who have never really enjoyed the bliss of sleeping in nature. But you don’t have to fear an uncomfortable night’s sleep when you have gear from REI and West Elm to enjoy after a long day of hiking and roasting Winnie’s.
REI Co-op Camp Dreamer Double Self-Inflating Deluxe Bed is the start of your good night’s sleep. It will keep two people four inches off the ground, which makes a big difference in temperature and comfort. It also self-inflates to save time, so you don’t have to worry about getting electricity as you would a regular air mattress.

Then, if you’re the type who hates sleeping in a sleeping bag, the REI Co-op Camp Dreamer Double Sleep System will be a game-changer. You can use it with the REI Deluxe Bed or another twin sleeping pillow. The sleeping regimen includes a raised comforter, fitted sheet, cotton top sheet, and a coverlet for cool nights. Using real sheets while sleeping outdoors can make a big difference.
There is more to just sleep of course. The REI and West Elm collection also includes chairs, tables, tents, packing cubes, and more for your adventure.
But some of the best items on offer are for REI members only. Fortunately, a REI membership costs just $30, and gives you benefits like free standard shipping with no minimum purchase requirements, 10% cashback on eligible purchases each year, access to special sets and limited-edition equipment, and more. Members will be able to purchase items from the West Elm collection like the Outward Day Shelter, which can be used for a little extra protection from the sun whether you’re standing at the grill, fishing, or just hanging out at camp on a summer’s day.
Whether you’re a beginner or expert camper, a REI member or just a civilian, there’s something for everyone in the new REI + West Elm range.
