Outdoor Equipment Rentals
MEC's outdoor equipment rental program is designed to make wilderness activities more accessible. If you are new to an activity, you don't have to buy the equipment to try it. We'll rent you quality gear at an affordable price.
Rental policies and procedures
All rental charges must be paid for in full at the time of pick-up. Payment can be made with cash, debit card, Visa, MasterCard or an MEC Gift Card. Current, valid photo identification (driver's license or passport) must be shown for all rentals.
- Credit toward purchase
One day's rental fee may be refunded from the purchase of the same equipment within 30 days of the rental (proof of rental required). This policy does not apply to mark-down items.
Reservations can be made up to one month in advance.
Cancellations less than 48 hours before the scheduled pick-up time are subject to a cancellation fee equal to the first day's rate.
- Rental pick-up
Pick-up is anytime between 3pm and store closing the day before; return anytime between store opening and 1pm the day after use.
- Late return
Rentals returned late will be charged the first day's rate for each day late.
- Damage/dirty/lost policy
If rental equipment is returned in damaged or dirty condition, the renter will be responsible for cleaning and repair costs. Shop rate will be charged ($35/hr, $10 minimum), plus any parts and materials for cleaning or repair. Replacement cost for lost, stolen or destroyed rental equipment is full retail value.
