We all love and need gear. Alps Mountaineering has a program that gives registered Scouts and Scouters a discount on the gear we typically use. The backpacking tents the troop has are from Alps. There's a lot of other gear beside tents too, sleeping bags, rain gear, backpacks and camp chairs come to mind.
