Gear Rentals

Not ready to go head-first into your equipment purchases? Do you have your first backpacking or paddling trip coming up? Want to test out certain brands and equipment before investing? Roads Rivers and Trails now offers gear rentals on backpacks, stoves, sleeping pads, sleeping bags, water filters, kid carriers, paddles, life jackets, trekking poles, headlamps, tents, cargo boxes, dry bags, and more!

All too often people are forced into cheap equipment that fails or isn't appropriate for their trip, leading to a less than enjoyable experience. Our rental program is designed for the first time or casual backpacker to have an affordable trip and those who want to try out gear before they invest. No more wasting money on bad gear. We want the outdoors to be more inclusive for everyone!

Test out gear from top brands including Nemo, MSR, Sea to Summit, Thule, Stohlquist, Osprey, Leki, and Petzl. All rentals come with the same service you've come to expect from our retail store. You will get a full overview of product features and use before heading out the door. Whether it's a trip to the Red River Gorge or abroad, we have the services and gear you need for your adventure!

Everyone needs time outdoors!
