Rating: 3 / 5
Walmart really does have nice people in their outdoors department at our local establishment, who know a lot about the Coleman lanterns and stoves and shotguns / rifles and ammo and really try to help, but realistically don't have much training on the rest of their gear. Further, lightweight doesn't really exist there.
What they do have is certainly among the lowest prices around, and they have a good return policy. But, you have to really know what you want. If you need general non-lightweight gear (then why are you at bpl.com?), it's a good place to go.
I'd like to give them a 3.5, but they really don't deserve a 4, so we're at the 3 level.
