Moosejaw, a leading retailer specializing in outdoor gear and apparel, recently launched its gear rental program that ships to any destination in the continental US, expanding the rental option to outdoor lovers not close to a gear rental store. Outbound and return shipping is free for most rentals. The online access to high-quality gear rentals includes top brands such as Big Agnes, Kelty, Marmot, and MSR.

Customers have the option to rent by category such as tents, sleeping bags, and backpacks, or they may choose to rent a fully customized package designed for a specific activity including car camping, comfort camping, standard backpacking or ultralight backpacking. 

“For those new to the outdoor experience, this program provides an approachable solution for securing top quality gear with a minimum investment,“ said Eoin Comerford, CEO of Moosejaw. ”For outdoor devotees looking to try new products or refresh a current supply, this enables them to try before they buy. With today’s busier lifestyles and more consumers venturing outdoors for the first time, the convenience of having your gear arrive at your front door or at your vacation destination makes the effort to get outdoors seamless and easy.”

The program minimizes the hassle of renting gear with the convenience to complete the entire process online, while providing high-touch support. Rentals of over $49 are shipped directly to the customer’s home or destination at no charge; at the end of the rental, customers ship back, also at no charge. Cancellations are free up to ten days before the rental window starts. 

To help renters who are new to the outdoors, each rental includes a free consultation with a Moosejaw Gear Wizard – a seasoned expert in camping and backpacking who works out of Moosejaw’s retail locations. The Gear Wizards provide advice on choosing the right gear, packing lists and planning tips to help ensure the renter’s first outdoor adventure will not be their last. 

Consumers can also feel good about the gear rental program as it helps to reduce the overproduction of equipment by encouraging gear sharing and re-use. To reward consumers for doing good and keep them coming back for more, each rental also earns 10% back in Moosejaw Reward Dollars that can be applied right away to paying rental fees or buying gear and apparel for their next adventure.
