Rent Havasu Falls Gear Package For One Backpacker

All the basic essentials for backpacking to Havasupai. See full product details below.


Base Rental Rates

This is a ready-to-go camping rental package for 1 backpacker headed out to Havasupai Falls on the typical 3-night permitted trip, plus a day's travel time before and after.  Additional days are available via dropdown above if needed.  If you have access to some gear already and don't need everything below, then you may want to rent the needed items from our site a la carte - browse all of our gear by rental category from the menu options at the top of this web page.  While this package has been curated for Havasupai, for sure it would be useful elsewhere as well.  But we also offer more universal backpacking packages, with longer rental term options, that might be a better fit for your needs.

This rental package has most of the pieces needed for a comfortable backpacking experience:  shelter, sleeping gear, cooking gear, hydration system, lighting, pack and poles to carry it all. The entire set below should weigh in at about 15 pounds.

Here's what's in the package you can pickup up at our store in Tempe, or that we can ship to you:

Backpack:  A medium capacity pack in the 60-65 liter capacity range, typically from Osprey or Deuter.  All have adjustable torsos so our packs  fit just about anyone comfortably.  See more details about the packs we rent.  We also include a set of often under-appreciated hiking poles - your hand rails in the wilderness and a big help going up and down the Havasupai canyon walls.

Shelter / Tent: Appropriate one-person lightweight backpacking design tent, typically from Big Sky International or comparable innovative brand.  It will be one on-hand from our selection of 1-person backpacking tents.  Add rain gear and clothing options appropriate to the expected weather.

Sleeping gear: A comfortable and lightweight sleeping bag rated in the 40 - 45' range, which means most adults would stay warm in temperatures as low as that range - rarely gets cooler than that during peak season for Havasupai.  If you do want something warmer, specify in the 'comments box' you'll see during checkout and we will swap it out for an upcharge of no more than $5/bag (we don't suggest anything bigger than a 20' rated bag).  Also included is a backpacking mummy style mattress pad that is approximately 20" wide by 72" long.  This set will be lightweight and compact down well for carrying in your pack.  See specifics for each under our sleeping gear rental category.  Bring something to use as a small lightweight pillow.

Cooking gear:  A canister-style stove and a super light titanium kettle for suitable for boiling water for freeze-dried meals, soups and coffee.  See these specifics under our cooking gear rental category.  We have food options on our site you can add to your cart, but you'll need to pick up the stove fuel at our store or other destination area. Steel mesh food bag - great for desert camping to keep critters and birds from stealing your food stash

Hydration system: 3-liter water bladder.  See details on this item under our hydration rental category.  Consider a small extra water bottle for dry stretches requiring more volume and for flexibility for powder mix flavorings and electrolytes.

Lighting:  The easiest and lightest option for lighting in the back country is the old reliable headlight.  Perfect for last minute scurrying around camp before retiring; tent reading; and the inevitable nature call in the middle of the night.  Just not so good for staring in the eye of your backpacking mates.  See more details on our rental lights.

The above will more than get you started, but you will need to fill in items from home to keep yourself as comfortable and safe as possible. Consider adding to your pack any or all of: paracord, duct tape, knife or multi-tool, enough, but not many apparel layers, the right food mix, maps, insurance card and some cash - just in case. Just don't over pack!  For more ideas on what you might need and how to best prepare for a trip, we have a number of articles under our "Learn" menu tab above, including our go-to list of gear options.

Specific items we rent or sell you may want to consider add to your cart to customize your backpacking kit includes these extra options below, but due to a quirk in the way our shopping cart works with rental lengths, you'll need to enter a separate order for any additional rental items.  We will however combine the 2 orders, and if shipped, the total shipping cost will be less than the total shown on the 2 orders.

Camp Suds - stay a little cleaner for your health and for your tent mate
