BEAR CANISTER RENTALS AND FIRST AID

Stay Healthy, Clean and Keep the Bears Away!

Nobody’s invincible. Although you’re not planning on getting hurt (nobody ever does), or meeting a bear it’s always a good idea to be prepared. Mountain Side has bear canister rentals, first aid kit rentals (read on) and your portable toilet for any backpacking trip. And towels. Towels are always a good idea, too.

First aid kit rentals are like an insurance policy. You hope you don’t need it, but if you, you have it. If you open it, we will charge you a replacement cost and you can keep the kit as a souvenir.
