Why Renting Adventure Gear is a Great Idea

Outdoor activities are great for keeping in shape, soaking in nature, and seeing the beauty in the world overall. But, it can sometimes be expensive or difficult to get into properly if you don’t own any adventure gear. If you are someone who wants to give the great outdoors the old college try but aren’t sure you’re ready to fully commit, consider renting your outdoor gear. Good equipment is a necessity for many outdoor activities. So why not give outdoor activities like camping, backpacking, and snowshoeing a proper go by renting adventure gear to make sure you’re prepared to have the best outdoor experience possible?


Save Yourself Money

The most obvious reason to rent instead of buying right off the bat is to save money. If you only go camping, backpacking, or snowshoeing once or twice a year (or never have), it doesn’t make a ton of sense for you to go out and purchase a bunch of expensive outdoor equipment. Camping for example, if you want a comfortable camping trip here are all of the amenities that make for a comfortable and fun trip:

  • A comfortable and protective tent
  • Mallet to set up tent stakes
  • Sleeping bags to match the climate your sleeping in
  • Sleeping pads so you don’t hate yourself after one night
  • A camp stove for food
  • Cooking utensils and pots
  • Lantern/ high-quality light source
  • A camp cooler to store food that needs to be chilled
  • Matches
  • Can openers


While this list isn’t all inclusive, it is an example of all of the supplies you might have to buy in order to be prepared for a camping trip where you’re not “roughing it.” If you were to go out and purchase all of these supplies, you could be looking at a bill that’s tough to palet. Alternatively, should you choose to rent, you’ll only end up paying a fraction of the cost it would be to buy. An added bonus is that you don’t have to find a place to store all of the equipment when you’re not using it since you return the adventure gear when you are done.

Safety is often the number one priority for any outdoor enthusiast.

When renting your adventure gear from an outdoor company like Mountain Side Gear Rentals, you have the option to do things like bear canister rental and bear deterrent spray rental. In areas that have a prevalent bear population, these items are absolutely worth it for the safety of you and your family/camping mates.
