About REI Co-op Rentals

As experts in the outdoor industry since 1938, we know outdoor gear. We also know how expensive it can be to buy, maintain and store all that gear—especially the stuff you won’t use every day. And for folks looking to try something new, it doesn’t always make sense to buy everything up front. That’s why we’ve expanded our rental offerings across the country, helping people try more things without having to buy more stuff. Want to kayak, mountain bike or camp next weekend? Rent some gear and go!
