See all of the camping and backpacking rental gear we can deliver to you in Springfield for your next outdoor adventure!

Whether you are traveling to or from Springfield, or anywhere else in Illinois, you can escape the crowds and enjoy the outdoors as it was meant to be - either camping in a nearby camp ground or backpacking deep into the wilderness. When you rent our backpacking or camping tents or other outdoor gear, you'll be safe from the elements while saving a lot of money renting instead of buying. Rental of backpacking and camping tents for shipment to Springfield or pickup at our store is easy;  just click on the link above to get started. Some of the items you can rent include mattress pads, day- and overnight-packs, camp lighting, sleeping bags, and trekking poles - anything you need for a wonderful outdoor experience - at much lower cost than local retailers. We can fulfill the outdoor gear and shelter needs of a solo thru-hiker or a corporate team-building retreat for hundreds of employees. We also have new and used gear for sale as well as any supplies and accessories you might need. LowerGear also rents the SPOT GPS Messenger personal tracker and rescue device.

We'll ship your rented gear to any convenient location in or near Springfield and throughout Illinois, or direct to your home before departing on your trip. Or, you can pick up the rental gear at our backpacking and camping retail store in the Phoenix area if your travels are nearby. We rent high-quality camping equipment and devices from popular manufacturers such as Fits Socks, Big Sky, Gregory, Kelty, Deuter, Granite Gear, and ThermaRest. After your trip, you can box up the rented tents and other items, affix the provided prepaid return label, and drop off the tent you rented at any UPS shipping point.

There are more than 70 outdoor gear items on our site you can rent; the most common ones are listed below:

Rent tents from 1-person to 6-person sizes for backpacking or car-camping
Rent backpacks for any wilderness or airline trip
Rent GPS and satellite communication devices

If we're shipping rental gear to you, 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.
