Browse the broad selection of backpacking and camping tents we rent and can deliver to you in Chicago for your next camping or backpacking trip!
Whether you are traveling to or from Chicago, 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 campground or backpacking deep into the wilderness. When you rent our backpacking or camping tents, 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 Chicago or pickup at our store is easy; just click on the link above to get started. You can also hire camp lighting, hiking poles, backpacks, mattress pads, hydration gear - anything you need for a wonderful outdoor experience - at much lower cost than other local retailers. We can fulfill the outdoor 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.
We'll ship the backpacking or camping tent rented from us to any convenient location in or near Chicago 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 tents - from ultralights for backpacking to sturdy, roomy tents for car-camping - from popular manufacturers such as MSR, Sierra Designs, Big Sky, and Alps Mountaineering. 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 the carrier's closest drop-off point.
We have more than 70 other outdoor gear items you can rent; the most common ones are listed below:
Rent backpacks for any wilderness or airline trip
Rent GPS and satellite communication devices
Rent camp cooking gear (don't cook inside the tent!)
Rent sleeping bags and pads for sub-zero to summer temperature ranges

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 anything during these transit days. We can get backpacking and camping tent rentals to you in Chicago or anywhere else in the US in 5 business days or less via Ground service.
