Try Before You Buy!

Let's face it! Mountaineering gear is expensive! It can be extremely difficult to really know if that mountaineering boot is going to be the right fit without actually taking it outside and putting some miles on it. Wouldn't it be great to be able to use the product outside before you drop the big bucks? Well with our Try Before You Buy program you can do just that! Rent an item from us, go use it outside, and put your rental fee towards a new purchase of either the same item or an item in the same category. Either you find exactly what you are looking for or you can confidently rule out an option which has a lot of value in itself. It's a win: win.
