As far as rental gear, we could send you the gear with a security deposit if you want to rent gear for outings. You would just be required to pay 50% of the original price upfront, which we will return to you when the rental gear is returned. When the gear gets sent back we will return 40%, therefore you only pay the 10% of original price for every item you rent. If you want to keep the items you rent, just let us know and we can let you keep it at 50% off. If the items are not able to be resold we may retain some of the original deposit. You are responsible for shipping to you. We will cover shipping back up to 5 lbs.
