LowerGear Outdoors is a local outdoor retailer in the Phoenix Arizona area with a national and international camping gear and backpacking gear rental service. We ship equipment to any location in the US and you ship it back when you're done - our rental program is that simple!

We rent camping tents; backpacking tents; all kinds of backpacks; sleeping bags for both car-camping and backpacking; mattress pads; GPS navigation equipment; hydration gear; hiking poles; personal rescue devices like SPOT and InReach; and many more items suitable for backpacking and camping. We also sell related accessories and supplies.

We are also the Phoenix location for Hobie, Riot, Old Town and many other brands of kayaks. We sell new ones from our showroom floor, and also rent kayaks for water fun in the lakes and rivers in Arizona. We can't ship the rented kayaks like we do tents and backpacks of course, but just stop by our store in Tempe and you can pick out which kayak you want to rent and we'll have you on your way quickly! Here's a few of the market and water recreational areas we serve with kayak rentals:
