Sleeping Gear

We rent sleeping bags and mattress pads via nationwide shipping or local pickup at our retail store.  A lot of campers and backpackers spend a lot of time working on minimizing weight, getting a comfortable pack, packing the right amount of food and water - which are all important - but then give short thrift to the value of quality rest at night.

We believe in the importance of a good night's rest - odds are you'll be sleeping (or at least trying to sleep) longer than you'll be hiking - and so we offer a wide range of options to accommodate any sleeping style under any weather conditions.

We believe in the importance of a good night's rest - odds are you'll be sleeping (or at least trying to sleep) longer than you'll be hiking - and so we offer a wide range of options to accommodate any sleeping style under any weather conditions.

We offer top-quality, lightweight sleeping gear from Sierra Designs, Kelty, Marmot, ThermaRest, Klymit, Big Agnes and others. All sleeping gear is recent model issue in new or virtually new condition. Everything is cleaned and disinfected after each rental. Here's me in action. Lots of fun.

For starters, browse through sleeping bags and make a selection considering your lowest expected night-time temperature. Keep in mind if you tend to sleep hot or cold, but the warmer you want to be, those bags will be heavier, so keep that in mind if you're backpacking. And also select based on whether your are backpacking or car-camping, as weight will may come into play. We also offer an ultralight bag liner for rent to add warmth to one of our other bags or to use by itself on hot summer nights. See the product description section for more details. 

The best sleeping bag is only part of the equation, as what's underneath you is equally important. We have a selection of mattress pads from ThermaRest and other brands. The mattress pad can have as much to do with how warm you sleep as the sleeping bag, and don't believe what you see in Westerns where the cowboy just throws down a saddle and sleeps on the ground - it is actually quite miserable without a mattress pad, even on a tent floor. Select the one best for your trip and weather - see the individual mattress pad product descriptions for more details.

  • Sleeping Bags

    We offer top-quality, lightweight sleeping bags from Sierra Designs, Kelty, Alps Mountaineering, and others. All sleeping bags are recent models in good condition. Everything is cleaned after each rental in our front-loader washer; it will be cleaner than the linens at most hotels. Here's me in action. Lot's of fun.

    For starters, select your bags based on the temperature range you expect at night. Then further refine your selection from the drop-down box for that item based on criteria such as whether you are backpacking or car-camping. We also carry offer an ultralight bag liner for rent to add warmth to one of our other bags or to use by itself on hot summer nights. See the product description section for more details. 

    Then be sure to rent a mattress pad - you'll kick yourself on your trip if you try to save a few bucks and go without one. We could put you in a $500 sleeping bag, but without a pad, it will still be a bad night.

  • Mattress Pads

    A key to a good night's rest when out on the trail starts with the right mattress under your sleeping bag. Cushioning and insulation can be major factors in the quality of your rest, and we carry a full selection to rent for virtually any conditions you might face. Whatever you do, don't try to save money by going without a mattress pad of some sort - it can be more important to your comfort than the sleeping bag.

    The ThermaRest products we rent have earned the Backpacker Magazine's Editors' Choice Gold Award and others for decades, and have been proven must-haves by campers and backpackers for many years. We also have mattress pads from other brands that may be even better for your particular trip. Read the product descriptions on each product and see which one best matches your plans.
