Rentals: A Gateway to Adventure
by: Bryan Wolf
Summer is almost here and the last thing you want to hear about is all of your friends taking sweet trips to the mountains. It’s not that you don’t want to go, it’s just that you haven’t even been before and where would you even start? You’ve heard their stories about buying the coolest new gear (hopefully at RRT) and can’t imagine how much you’d have to spend to go with them. These are normal everyday concerns for an adventure hopeful.
No more excuses! Rentals are at RRT:
RRT’s new gear rental program gives opportunity to the new adventure seeker. With RRT’s professional gear guidance and rental service you can be side by side with seasoned thrill seekers and look like the pro of the group. We now rent gear from top name brands like MSR, Black Diamond, Thermarest, Osprey, Sea To Summit, and Sierra Designs. So now for very affordable pricing you can get the gear you need for a trip and trust that you have some of the best brands on trail. But our service does not stop there. The RRT staff won’t send you out the door, hands full and clueless. Every time you rent (or buy) from us you can get a full run down of product features, use, care, and personalized fittings.
By the time you head out of town you’ll be confident and ready! So what are you waiting for? Rental gear availability and pricing can be found here: Gear Rentals
Why do we rent gear?
The outdoors provide an essential element to all of our lives and should be as accessible and inclusive as possible. We’ve seen nature heal wounds, save lives, blossom personalities, give purpose and passion, grow confidence, and strengthen bonds. There is very little that time with nature can’t accomplish and for that reason we know that its impact should be as proliferate as possible. Time spent outside is time well spent.
Who can rent our gear?
Our rentals are ready for the first timer or the seasoned adventurer. Let’s say you are heading out for a group overnight at your local state park. You need a tent, sleeping pad, and sleeping bag for the night. To buy all of the items new can be hundreds of dollars. You think about going to the superstore for a cheap option but you’ll still spend $100 and chances are you’ll wake up cold and wet. As you retreat to the car for the night you’ll have visions of throwing away your new “gear” in a fit of rage. Haha, alright, hopefully this is worst case but why risk it?
The price of all three items for your overnight is only $54. You’ll be dry and cozy all night saving you a trip to the chiropractor in the morning. But we haven’t even mentioned the best part! When you return your rented gear you’ll have the option to apply half of your rental fee to the purchase of new gear. We’ll apply that portion of your rental directly to a new item purchase.
Do you just rent Camping and Backpacking Gear?
Heck no! We are growing our rental fleet to help you get outside in more way than one. Have an extra boat but forgot about a busted paddle? We’ll rent life jackets and paddles too! Hitting the road on a National Park tour; we’ll rent cargo boxes and in some cases car racks to give you extra room! Check out the full list of options and see for yourself!
