Reservations: In order to ensure that we can accommodate your rental needs, we recommend that you make your reservation at least a week in advance. When you make a reservation your credit card will be charged for the full cost of your rental period. Reservations must be made with either a credit card or a debit card that can be run as a credit card. No exceptions will be made to this policy.
Cancellation: When you make a reservation we are setting aside rental gear for you and may have to turn away other customers so if your plans change please cancel your reservation as soon as possible. Because we may have to turn away other customers we must charge cancellation fees as described below. To receive a full refund you must notify us at least 7 full days before your scheduled delivery time. Cancellations made within 4-7 days will only be charged for shipping. Cancellations made with 2-4 day notice, will receive store credit towards a future rental. CANCELLATIONS MADE WITH LESS THAN 2 DAYS NOTICE WILL BE CHARGED FOR THE FULL RENTAL.
Rental Guarantee: We take pride in the gear we rent and fully inspect all of our rental gear for cleanliness, damage, and proper operation. We ask that you inspect your rental gear upon delivery and notify us immediately of any problems so that we can replace any unsatisfactory gear. If you experience a problem with any of your rental gear during your rental period that is the result of gear not performing properly or being in an unsatisfactory condition at the time of delivery, and we are unable to replace the gear in a timely manner, we will refund the rental fee for the unsatisfactory item. The decision to issue a refund is solely at our discretion. REFUND OF YOUR RENTAL FEE IS THE FULL EXTENT OF OUR LIABILITY FOR OUR RENTAL GEAR.

SHIPPING LIABILITY: Please note that we are only responsible for delivering the items to the address you enter as your desired shipping address. Since we have no control over the conditions at the destination you choose to enter we cannot accept liability for stolen or damaged shipments and this is the customer's responsibility.

We do strongly caution against making your reservation start date for the same day you are departing on your trip as FedEx can deliver anytime on your start day including in the evening. We strongly recommend that you choose a reservation start date that is the day before your departure.

If you are using FedEx, UPS, or another shipping com[any, we will look at the tracking info to verify the ship date. If you are using the US Postal Service we will look to the postmark date.

Security Deposit: We do not charge a security deposit, however, IN THE EVENT OF DESTRUCTION, LOSS OR THEFT OF YOUR RENTED GEAR, YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY CHARGE YOUR CREDIT/DEBIT CARD UP TO THE MANUFACTURER’S SUGGESTED RETAIL PRICE OF THE RENTED ITEM.
Damaged Gear: You are responsible for gear returned with damages in excess of normal wear and tear. Examples of such damages include but are not limited to punctures, tears, stains, or missing components. Normal wear and tear shall include minor scrapes, abrasions, or evidence of use consistent with responsible use of the rental gear. If you return damaged gear you will only be charged for the cost of repairs and nothing more. IN THE EVENT OF DESTRUCTION, LOSS OR THEFT OF YOUR RENTED GEAR, YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY CHARGE YOUR CREDIT/DEBIT CARD UP TO THE MANUFACTURER’S SUGGESTED RETAIL PRICE OF THE RENTED ITEM. It is neither our desire, nor our policy to seek to charge you for damages and only excessive abuse of our gear will result in damage fees.
Late Fees: Failing to return your rented items on time may prevent us from fulfilling another customer’s order so if you cannot return your rental gear on time please contact us to make arrangements. If the rented item is not needed for another rental you will only be charged for the additional days as if you had originally scheduled the rental for the extended time. If rental gear is needed for another customer’s rental, and is not returned on time you will be charged the three (3) day rental fee for each day until the rental gear is returned. If we have shipped you your rental gear or you have arranged to ship it back to us after picking up your gear in our shop, your only concern is to make sure the rental gear is delivered to your shipper on the end date. The maximum late fee shall be equal to the manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the rented item. IN THE EVENT RENTAL GEAR IS RETURNED AFTER END DATE FOR YOUR RENTAL YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY CHARGE YOUR CREDIT/DEBIT CARD UP TO THE MANUFACTURER’S SUGGESTED RETAIL PRICE OF THE RENTED ITEM.
Cleaning: All sleeping bags are laundered between rentals and are delivered clean & fresh. All of our gear is delivered in ready to use condition. If rented gear becomes wet or damp we ask that you hang up to dry or take appropriate action to prevent mold and mildew from forming. If gear is handled properly this should not be a problem. For example, if you rent a tent for a week, use it for one rainy night and then decide to abandon your trip, don’t leave the tent crumpled up in a dark corner for the rest of the week, hang it up to dry.
Disputes: All legal disputes and lawsuits must be filed in a court of appropriate jurisdiction located within Westchester County, NY, applying the laws of NY State. Customers agree to waive the defense of forum non conveniens.
