When we actually ship your gear, you will receive a tracking information email directly from UPS. Mountain Side offers a simple and economical flat rate shipping option for returning your gear.

Transit Time

You do not pay for any of the transit time when you rent from Mountain Side

We can include a pre-paid shipping tag for return shipping as well.

Mountain Side will ship your gear anywhere you want it shipped.  Like your destination if you are flying in. We often ship to a UPS Store or first night hotel. Whatever works for you. It’s a good idea to call your hotel or UPS Store to make sure they will accept your gear and if there are any special instructions needed on the shipping label.

What outdoor gear does Mountain Side rent?

Premium gear from the best brands in the industry. Our rental items include tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, backpacks, stoves, cooking items, accessories, and more.

Returning Gear Clean and Dry

We expect gear to be returned clean and dry. Dry is critical. Wet gear means mildew and mildew leads to bad things and lots of cleaning. Clean for you means shake the dirt out of the inside of the tent and other gear. It’s important to know that we reserve the right to charge a cleaning fee if your gear comes back wet and dirty. If you are in a situation where you have to return gear back damp or wet, a phone call will go a long way in avoiding charges.

With that said, we understand normal wear and tear on rental items. If items are damaged, lets say you put your tent or sleeping bag too close to the fire and holes were burned in it, there is a fee for fixing or replacing.  Just treat the gear like you own it and there shouldn’t be any problem.
