Lowergear Outdoors, based in Tempe, AZ, is also the world's largest online outdoor gear and GPS navigation rental company. We hire all the camping gear basics such as tents and backpacks; hard to find rental gear like water filters & trekking poles; handheld GPS units for trail use and geocaching events; car navigation units; and satellite personal rescue devices. See one of our most popular SPOT GPS Messenger items. At our retail store, we specialize in ultralight, but practical backpacking and camping gear - sales of new and used as well as a full hire and rental department.

We will ship your rented backpacking and camping equipment to your home, arriving city, near a national park or anywhere else you designate. It's a convenient way to have access to great quality outdoor gear and accessories without the expense of buying. Just order far enough in advance to allow for a few days of transit time. Note that you are not charged rent during these transit days. We can get your SPOT GPS Messenger rent to you anywhere in the US in 5 business days or less via Ground service. Use the rented gear, enjoy it, re-box it and drop it off at a nearby UPS Store or other UPS authorized shipping center.
